No. I just break it out when we hang out Loren02 6 years i tell my girl friend, because i'm out in california and she's in atlanta so i have to tell her or she'd never know!! she send's me pics of her new purchases too...but typically its because i've requested a picture! aimeeb 6 years Eh depends on what it is, sometimes. soapbox 6 years Only if my friend comments on it. Its out of my nature to just gush about something I buy without a little nudging first. I would describe it, but I won't gush over it unless someone does first. And even then its at a minimum. bunnyOhare 6 years I post about them to my friends on a plus sized fashion email list that I own/moderate. We talk clothing, shoes, cosmetics, accessories and occasionally other types of purchases or wants come up too. javsmav 6 years only major purchases. only if it's a great deal. only with certain friends. neonbee 6 years Same here, emalove. When my friends know I went shopping, I usually tell them what I bought because they'll ask me anyway. emalove 6 years If I buy something fabulous, I might tell my girl friends who are into fashion about it...but otherwise, no. wanderlusting 6 years No. But I do blog about them on my blog daily! Which I can't mention here because Sugar doesn't allow it, lol AMP 6 years Major for me is something I'm very, very excited about, but not necessarily cost a lot. So yes, sometimes I gush. But I would never gush about a high priced item. spasmadic 6 years No, usually, unless asked myystque 6 years I gush but not about price. I like showing my friends (only the ones that I know are equally into clothing) cute stuff I've just gotten. Usually shoes. crazygirl93 6 years Only on major purchases... mek123 6 years I don't on the everyday stuff but I've been on a jewelry kick so, of course, I have to show off my new purchases. Candie-Girl 6 years I don't. Sometimes people complement but that's it! I Don't like to show off what I have and I never buy anything expensive so I don't know why I should gush! nikkisoda 6 years I try not to. It's a complicated issue.........if it's something pricey, like a great pair of Christian Louboutins, I keep it to myself. I've found that when I tell some of my friends they like to make fun of the purchase. Saying that they would never spend that much money on something or that they think it's stupid that I do. Which I could understand if I couldn't afford it, but I can. So I just keep my joy to myself that way it's not stolen from me. Which is hard cause great shoes and bags are my favorite purchases! dcfashionista 6 years Only when the price is too good to be true. satarah 6 years Only if it's kinda a big purchase or I'm really fond of what I bought. I mean, I shop all the time, so it would super annoying if I gush about everything to my friends, lol. Chloe-X 6 years only if they are into fashion and are shopaholics like me lol x barneyk 6 years major means a bag over a grand, I have to tell someone, cause I'm hiding it from my husband, LOL fashionrox 6 years Only to my best friend because were both shopaholics and each recieve great pleasure about knowing one anothers shopping conquests. opisnowpro 6 years sometimes... rct1law 6 years Typically, I only share info when someone asks about an item. But, if there is a really good sale going on and I know a friend is looking for something special--then I definitely gush because I want them to get something good, too! Zivanod 6 years Maybe if it's really cool (like electronics) or a really great deal. simplyfab87 6 years Only about something should be expensive that I got for a really good price.
