I need to blog about this.
In one of my comments in Rosa's blog, I seem to have said that I have acquired a lot of shoes during the short span that I as married.
No, I am not stressed about being married. I would like to believe that we are still in the honeymoon phase and everything is still rosy.
I don't think stress is a factor in any of my shopping escapades. I shop because I see something nice in the stores. And maybe there are too many nice things and so little money for Jen.
One of the reasons why I was not able to do this during my single days is that I often give my money to my mom. Since I stayed with them after college graduation, it's only fair that I give my share for the household expenses. Plus I knew that I need to save up for any event (like say a wedding). So I really had no extra cash to buy shoes and clothes and bags. Besides, my sister had plenty, so I can borrow all I want.
When I got married, my husband got depressed with the scarcity of my belongings. I had 4 pairs of shoes and about a dozen shirts that I brought with me to our new abode. Two (or was it three) pairs of jeans that I wear alternately. Being so dependent on my fashionista sister in my single days, has yielded me with almost NOTHING to wear at the beginning of my marriage.
I married a man who had a shopaholic for a mother. Yes, my mother-in-law has discount cards in shops all over Glorietta. She even knows the salespersons in Fino and CMG by name. She knows their contact numbers and can easily reserve a pair of shoes or bag that she wants. If you think I have too many pairs of shoes, wait till you see her shoe cabinet.
And having a mother-in-law that is a fashionista (she knows the bag names of the Hermes brand), has been good to me. My husband believes that when I look good, he looks good. And that taking care of me (and my shopping sprees) is part of the deal when we got married.
I just hope that the helmet he's wearing doesn't get loose, else he might take everything away.
To be continued...**
**on second thought, I don't want to continue anymore. Let's just say, I bought another pair of flats this weekend. Enough to keep me happy until the next weekend.
