Who doesn’t love clothes shopping? In fact, it’s one of my favourite past times. Nothing beats that feeling of finally finding that perfect top that looks fab with those new pants you still haven’t worn, or snagging a pair of heels that look gorgeous AND don’t hurt your feet! Gotta celebrate all of life’s little victories, right?
