I have this major urge to shop ‘til I drop, or at least shop until buyer’s remorse sets in. Some Gal Pals don’t have that curse, but I do. All my time temping taught me to forgo frivolity and live off the basics—it was my Transcendentalist phase. Don’t worry. I’m over it.
Below is a list of all my must haves. If you are a true friend, you will help me pare it down. (Because really, I don’t think I actually need all this stuff.)
1. Perfume: I’m going to a Fragrance Event at Nordstrom with Latte Lady and I couldn’t be more stoked for it. I’ve pre-purchased the gift bags and I’m sending one to The Pink Fairy! My favorites right now are Cast A Spell by Lulu Guinness, Euphoria by Calvin Klein, Butterfly by Hanae Mori, and Pink Sugar by Aquolina.
2. Shoes: I don’t know where to start. I need some flats for work, some sexy heels, and some Converse because I can’t believe I don’t have any in my closet right now!
3. Music: I can’t wait for the new Dresden Dolls album to come out! I also have a craving for the new Fiona Apple CD and Alison Krauss’ latest Grammy-winning album.
After getting all these items down on a list, they don’t look so bad. I can’t wait to get my shop on! Being gainfully employed does have its perks.
