Shopaholic Tag

I found this little treat on Glossy Boutique (you can find the original post here). Who doesn't love a post about shopaholicism?

   So here are some questions that I've answered to give you a bit of an insight into my shopping habits - if you have some spare time, copy the questions into a post, answer them and post the link in the comment box below; I'd love to hear about your guilty shopping pleasures!

How old were you when you realised you were a shopaholic?
   When I started this blog at 17. I wanted to have something to write about everyday, so I developed a little bit of an obsession with constantly having new things. Recently it's calmed down as I've been writing about Fashion Week, so I hope to keep it to a minimum now!
How do you feel after shopping, and do you have any weird habits you do after shopping?
   Not going to lie, a little bit regretful. However, I usually get more of a buzz when I try it on at home. No weird habits unfortunately, other than tweeting about it!
What are your top 5 favourite stores to shop at and why?
   Selfridges, because I love the luxury aspect, just standing in the foyer makes me excited; Topshop, because they always have size 6 in stock so I don't have to worry about finding something I love and having to wait for it to be ordered in; Miss Selfridge, because I can always find a whole outfit that is completely my style;, because everything is so reasonably priced and, despite this, well-made; Zara, because you can guarantee quality at high street prices.
What item do you have the most of in your closet?
Whats the most you have ever spent on 1 shopping trip?
  I'm not one to spend a thousand pounds in one trip. I'm more likely to spend a hundred, then go back the next day and spend another hundred. False security.
Do you ever experience shoppers regret?
   All the time.
What was something you regretted buying?
   Leopard print jeans. Totally not my style - and they really do make your legs look twice the size.
What is your favourite thing to buy?
   Blazers and lace up platform shoe boots; once I find something I like I tend to buy a lot of it.
Do you buy the same items in different colours?
    Yes, platform shoe boots!
Do you ever use dressing rooms?
   Only when I'm buying a dress for a special occasion, or when I'm buying an item that I wouldn't normally wear i.e. something with noticeable sheer panel.
Do you prefer to go shopping alone, or with others?... and who is your favourite shopping buddy?
    Definitely alone. Shopping is a selfish sport, and it's best to keep it that way.
If you could go shopping with a Celeb who would it be and why?
   Mollie King from the Saturdays so she can show me where to get the best short and blazer combinations.
If you could go shopping with a Blogger/Youtube guru who would it be and why?
   Susie Bubble, because she'd have loads to talk about and because her style is so quirky.
Whats your favourite, treat, snack, drink during or after shopping?
   If it's a cold day, a Costa hot chocolate with a caramel shot. If it's hot, the day cannot end without a trip to the crepe stand.
What is something you have always wanted to buy but never had the money to do so?
   Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats, Michael Kors Matt Black Watch, Celine Winged Tote, Burberry Mac, MAC or Nars makeup... The list is endless.
If you had £1000 to spend on anything you want, what would you splurge on?
   All of the above.
Are you a proud shopaholic?
   I think that goes without saying.
