I confess...I gotta probblem...

I like to shop.


I do,its almost like sex...hell almost better
The feeling of that cold,hard plastic in my hand is a rush.....

I remember when we first met,I was a freshman in college...I knew it was wrong....but it felt so good....Jordans,Purses,Dinners...It was love at first sight.

Capital One,Chase,Discover,Torrid,Victoria Secret,Nordstroms,hell occassionally Daddy's American Express Blue....And there was that time daddy got me a lane bryant card....They are all GOOD friends....
Good friends who have gotten me thru several break ups...
Deaths,Birthdays,Graduations....
These good friends have cost me a couple thousand dollars...

I love it all,I even have favorite shopping bags,recpeits,and sales assoc who know me by NAME,yea this is DEEP.....I work in retail,I should know better....Shouldnt I?

Never should a mang come from behind the counter to hug and shake hands...And ask about your mother...

Sad I know it is.
I know I have a probblem
Its hard to be a "Single black female addicted to retail"....


We all have our vices...
Some are addicted to porn...kush...patron...
I have my shopping.
I come from a long line of shoppers....My grandma was a shoppaholic from home..

Several months of home shopping network....which probably inspired my short lived ebay addiction...

And my great grandmother with her savings under the couch to buy new skirts,....Which could have inspired my emergency credit card that I use for sales between paychecks...

Yea its an addiction.
I know it....

What can I say?
Im stimulate the economy..
With women like me....
Someone will always have a job.
*shrugs* so such as life....

Fashion cues for the Attractive and Mature....

For some reason everyone wants to claim to be 'grown and sexy'.....And for some reason cant dress the part... So Ive created my own phrase "this isnt for the grown and sexy,this is for the mature and attractive"....On the strength that those of us who actually are 'grown and sex' do not have to remind those around us EVERY 5 MINS or attend events named after this fad saying.....Attractive and mature have the form of dress that states it. So take these few helpful hints.... 1-Ladies;your jewelry needs to be simple and functional.A few simple pieces (not made of PLASTIC or from the hair store) say alot ....Perfect examples are.... a cocktail ring a silver 'return to Tiffany&co' bracelet or just something lite to put around your wrist a pearl necklace;classic AND sexy. a plain gold hoops <==NO,i repeat NO doorknockers a pearl earrings 2-Step your shoe game up,purchase a good CLASS pair of shoes What is a good pair of shoes you ask?A good pair of

I kinda did a thing......Nothing major...

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,
