The Shopaholic Tag

Would you consider yourself a shopaholic?
I wouldn't personally, but I look like one when I go shopping. I feel like self-control goes out the window, and I find it difficult not to buy at least one thing.
How would you classify your style?
I would say, girly, bright and (almost) everything waisted with a love for print. Especially for little printed animals.
What store can you not leave without buying one thing?
eBay. Or Boots. I can't help myself... You're always going to need something from Boots and Primark is SO CHEAP. And eBay always has amazing dupes, which is what I find it a bargainista's dream online shop for...! Sometimes you can't bear spending £55 on that amazing Zara skort every blogger wants (including me!!!!) but you can spend £6 on a dupe! Hells yeah... And if someone knows if that seller who's selling dupes cheaply has the one white in stock again let me know!
Where do you find the best deals?
Again, Boots. The 3 for 2 on make-up and so on is just a killer for me. I always get something... And then I have the advantage card... Oh dear. I've nearly got enough points for a new perfume...!
What designer are you willing to splurge for?
I don't have a designer I have a love for to say I can splurge on as of yet... But I think if I had one, it might be someone like a shoe designer like, Kurt Geiger or Jeffrey Campbell.
Do you have a go to shopping outfit?
I don't have an exact outfit, but it is usually skinny jeans, Chelsea boots and a pretty top for style and practicality. You never know when you're going to try stuff on, and as much as it's a pain, I'll try stuff on because I hate the drive back to the place I bought it from... And I feel the guilt of taking it back too!
What is your guilty pleasure?
I think this would have to be shoes... I love shoes and I go through so many of them! It's like I can't walk properly or something but at the moment almost all of my flats are ruined. I seriously need to learn not to ruin shoes so quickly. But back to the question, I love shoes and I love all the different styles of shoes! I haven't got as many shoes as some people think I do, because I do throw them away when they are no good, no matter how much it hurts! If this wasn't my guilty pleasure, it would be dresses otherwise!
What is one staple clothing piece you cannot live without?
This is hard because I don't know what this is. I think it might actually have to be dresses. I love a dress because you can dress them up or down and they're suitable for most weathers! I think if I had to have a particular one, it would have to be my motel dress. It's definitely my most favourite, because I feel like I have lots of ways to wear that beaut!
What is a trend you hope never goes out of style?
Oh I hope that anything and everything waisted doesn't go out of style! It's a style that suits me best personally, but I guess it doesn't matter too much if it goes out, because I'd always be wearing things waisted!  I don't always always wear things waisted but it is my favourite style! But then again it does matter, because then they might not make anymore stuff for me to buy!!! Ahhh! Just that thought makes me seem like a I am a shopaholic :(
What trend did you love that passed way too quickly?
I always was a big fan of the cargo trousers. I thought they were quite sexy with a cute top or a white one for that masculine girly look! I'd love to find a pair and buy them to wear with bright heels and a cute top! I think there's a pretty pair in Warehouse actually.... hmmmm.
Who is your fashion icon?
I don't have a fashion icon. I think getting inspired from a few different people is what I do! I find bloggers inspiring for fash-spirations as I feel I can connect with them on a more "human" and "normal" level. (haha, normal...) With bloggers, we all wear, high street and online brands were all familiar with, and we're all at a level we understand each other at and don't feel like we couldn't achieve that look if we wanted to. Well that's how I feel. I wouldn't ever really look up to celebrities too much, because I can never tell what their style is, it changed so much. I can't even think of one it could possibly be! Oh well!
I don't think I'm a shopaholic. Doing this tag came to me yesterday when my boyfriend asked me if I had a spending problem, because I always seem to have something new. Compared to some people, I don't think I have a problem at all... Though I do find myself worrying that I do, and that I can't help myself ever. I do feel quite proud when I walk out of a shop with nothing... And with that being possible and often possible, I come to the conclusion that I am not a shopaholic, but that I like to treat myself at least once a month, or when I've done something successful! (That so sounds like a shopaholic's excuse doesn't it...? Oops!)
