Do You Prefer To Shop?...

Shopping for me, is like a sport! I usually shop with a friend or two, but preferably by myself. I like the time for myself. Besides, if I shop alone my friends (and everyone else) would be surprised by my new outfit(s). I just like hearing people ask me "Where did you get that?" "Cute outfit!" etc. Even being sick can't stop me; online shopping. But I really don't online shop, unless there's something out that I MUST have overseas.

I prefer shopping alone or online. I can't stand having someone else with me because their fashion views are different. I know that it's not a bad thing but I also don't take too well to negativity at times, especially with shoes. I have an odd taste in shoe designs.

I am much like kscincotta when it comes to my shopping habits. I really like to do it alone and spend as much time as I like over it. I do always bring my stuff home and try it on infront of someone to get that second opinion though.. and then usually end up returning things later.

i agree Jamee! I really like shopping solo because i don't have to worry about whoever is with me and i can take as much (or little) time as i want.

I'd say solo MOST of the time, like when I'm just out looking for nothing particular (shopping is more of a hobby for me than a necessity--some people read a magazine or watch TV when they're bored, I SHOP!). My only exception is when it's for something important, like a dress for a wedding or special occasion, then I'll always need a 2nd opinion.

Definitely prefer shopping alone as I get to go into the shops that I like, and take my time doing it. If I go with my husband, he'll gripe about the time spent trying on every single pair of jeans and moan and groan because I didn't find anything that I liked enough to buy. Sometimes he's good though, because he'll help pay for some of my shopping addiction! If I could, I would shop everyday to my heart's content - doesn't matter if it's furniture or clothing or accessories, as long as it's shopping! (Well, except for grocery shopping - that's not much fun). Although, I heard Loblaws has come out with a new line called Joe [Fresh] that I'm dying to take a look at - so on that note, even grocery shopping has some perks!

My husband is actually my favorite shopping partner. He has a really good eye and is completely honest about what looks good on me. I like having someone with me, either my mom or my husband, because they often steer me to a better choice. If it's just for fun, though, solo is great.

I cannot shop with other people. I need to be able to take my time looking at things, esp since I tend to go into a lot of stores, stay there for a long time and then not even try stuff on before leaving. I also tend to fall into the trap of buying things other people think looks good on me that I don't particularly care for, so I can't have other people around.

I like to go shopping with my sister. I like to get a second opinion and I can count on her to be honest. Plus, our tastes are pretty similar so we like to go to the same places.

Interesting question :D I like to check stores first by myself, and perhaps trying some outfits. The, I come back, with my mom, and look for whatever I liked in my first visiti. I have better taste that my mom, but she's the realistic one and makes me notice the 'wearability' of the clothes I want to buy. Example, "that sweater won't warm you a lot", "that's just too elegant to go to college, better try something else"... and in the end I end up choosing clothes that are stylish and practical. I love her for that :)

Depends. If I think I am going to feel rushed then by myself but I usually like going with a friend. My mom has a horrible sense of fashion but she buys me stuff so sometimes I take her ;)

i don't mind shopping with a friend but i guess i prefer solo. especially if it's speed shopping and you just want to get in and out. (sigh) i so want to go to urban and buy some dresses but i have to wait until i get paid next friday.

I'm with missyukp on the online shopping. but for fun- shopping with friends or family. People like to shop with me because I notice things they miss. "Save the makeup, save the world..."

I prefer to do my all my shopping online. I'm pretty brand loyal, so i already know all of my sizes and I can always find a much better selection and better prices online. I love to save stuff in my favorites or wish list on website and go back at a later time to see if I'm still interested, it saves me the headache of buyers remorse :)

All the above. Solo, with a friend, with family - doesn't really matter... as long as I get to shop :)

It's nice to have a friend to shop with, BUT... i don't get a lot of alone time so sometimes its nice to just go by myself!

Usually solo b/c I can go into the stores that I want and not have to worry about the other person I'm with.

Solo. I like being able to take my time finding a design that's not just "good," but really GREAT on me. It is helpful to have a second opinion but the sales assistants here (Tokyo) are very good and are always willing to fetch different sizes, recommend similar styles in the shop that fit slightly differently, and give advice on coordinating the items according to the latest trends, so there's no need to bring a friend who will become impatient.
