“Why Do You Women Shop So Much!”


This week I was asked- by a male of course- Do I ever get sick of shopping every week?! Being the infamous debater that I am I of course counter punched with a right hook of comparison and an upper jab of some knowledge; of fashion that is. And lets say I rest my case. I won! But it led to the topic of this weeks blog, Why Do Women Shop So Much?!?

Oh where to begin! I think it’s safe to say that women do not need much convincing when it comes to shopping. However we have many influences when joining the shop-o-holic frenzy.

Girl Talk

This is the best way to have girl talk. Us ladies can’t live without it so spending time at the mall or down in soho- where I prefer to shop- always leads to countless hours of trying on daring outfits while complaining about a guy or should you invest in a sex toy- I never said girl talk was a PG rated kind of convo, anything goes, that’s the rule!

Therapy

Life can get a bit rough at times. So an activity in which you can buy change is the best quick fix a girl could ask for. Women shop when they’re happy. They shop when they’re sad to cheer their selves up. And they shop heavily when they’re going through a break up. Yet the same satisfaction is provided regardless of the driving force of the shopping trip. That is the feeling of something new! Like guys get excited for a new car or a new hockey stick, women get excited for the last call sale at Saks Fifth Avenue or the new MAC lipstick colors for spring.

Retail-tainment

Shopping is entertaining. Much persuasion from sales associates, but the hype of a must-have item is something that most women are just mere suckers for. There’s always a gift with purchase or a trunk show in which you can purchase exclusive pieces from a collection. This prevents the risk of wearing the same dress as three other girls at the lounge on a Saturday night. Boy I hate that!

So whether it be for a session of male-bashing, a way to get your mind off of life, or to be amused, women shop to shop. Vanity is in our DNA; it’s part of the role of a woman. So we will shop till we drop and there’s nothing that will change that!
