Shopping Buddies

This Saturday I will be shopping for the perfect outfit for my dinner. I have asked one of my friends to come with me for opinions. This person has the same kind of taste I do, thus the reason why I asked her. Over the past years I have shopped with other friends and it was a big hassle. The other people I usually shop with have such different taste than I do, and this can become a very frustrating process.

I like to shop fast and get out. I don't really like to try on clothes, but when shopping for a dinner I kind of have to. I plan my little shopping outing to a max of 3 stores so that I am not overwhelmed.

So overall, I need someone who does not wish to go to every single store, has similar taste, and lets me know thier true opinion to shop with me.

Do you have a shopping buddy when you go out? Do you tend to shop alone? How picky are you when it comes to shopping/

Personally...I usuallys shop alone. I agree with you in that just because someone is your friend doesn't mean they have the same taste as you do. A good friend of mine did assist me with a wardrobe update once, though. After sharing a bottle of wine and the latest gossip she announced that I was dressing too old and I needed to clean out my closet...and she was going to help me. We went through my closet...she was the time she was done I had very few clothes left. Everything she deemed to be "too old" was donated to charity and I had an excuse to go shopping. I shopped alone and came home with a new look. I must admit I now feel and look much younger.

I don't have a shopping buddy because I prefer to shop alone. I find myself to have differing taste from my friends and families. On top of all that, some of them really don't have a sense of fashion or color coordination at all Oops Anyway I am too picky as you can see.
