  2. yes it is annoying, whilst i was studying in America the last academic year just gone i brought a lot of my wardrobe with me and i bought a lot a clothes whilst out there, f21 was so new and cheap to me. when friends would come into my room they were shocked at the amount of clothing that i had, but would somehow never have a problem with asking to borrow things...interesting

  4. sometimes, and i make sure i don't do it to my friends as well.

    what i can't stand is having to justify justify justify sometimes.

  5. I DO. Well I did. But when I used to live with my parents I got crazy by their whining when I bought new stuff :D

  6. sometimes, yes. And it's so stupid actually! I shouldn't justify my purchases, right?

  7. I have very little in my wardrobe, purposely so, so when I do buy items, I spend that little more than others may do. I think negativity from others about what you have simply means you have to flaunt it all the more lol. But in all seriousness, other people have no right to put you down for what you buy, provided by buying what you buy you aren't doing others harm.

  8. I have been trying to "cut back" on fashion expenditures for the past four years.

    I've finally accepted that it's never going to happen.

    I frequently yell at my boyfriend, "Don't judge me!" while running into the house with shopping bags. The end.

  10. Hahaha! Yes! Though that's why I usually go shopping by myself- but even then I was baptized Catholic so it just follows me around.

  12. O definitely, my sis would always look shocked at my shopping bag and ask with popping eyes, "Shoes? Again?". And then she would give me a look of disbelief.

    But when it's time to dress up, she always give this sweet look to borrow my stuffs!
