Shopping For Style and So Much More
Women love to shop. We enjoy the company and the social aspect with friends. It’s sometimes a casual stroll through the mall, or on a mission to find that special something for the right occasion. We hope to find something to buy as we go from store to store touching, looking, smelling, and taking in all the sights and sounds. I love the feeling of finding that great shirt, skirt, dress, or something new to make me feel good as I walk through that room. There’s always that accessory making the entire outfit complete to accent your personality or fashion flair.
Finding a bargain is always best. TjMaxx and Marshalls make for a fun adventure to shop and offers the thrill of the hunt to finding that right fit at the right price. Finding the right man or woman to share a life together can be similar to searching for that right fit. However, it’s something we can’t buy to earn one’s affection and attention.
Women and men may seek one another for comfort, company, a connection, communication, companionship, chemistry and more. We casually date in hopes to find it. It’s scary to see the similarities of the thrill of shopping for clothes to complement your wardrobe and the thrill of searching for that special someone. We may not need it, but we just WANT IT! What do we really want to feel satisfied? Do the clothes we wear add to our confidence to believe in who we are and what we can offer? The models in magazines and the images in the media could make some feel insecure. Perhaps, it’s the marketing that inspires us to look the best we can be. Most of us want the companionship and closeness with a person that can bring out the best.
We discover the person; a special woman or a man that recognizes our distinct attributes to make us feel we are part of the same thread. We respect and learn to adore another person that can appreciate our entire ensemble and the accents we offer with our personality. It’s how we dress to express and impress showing off our casual-side, conservative,and sporty style. As we walk down the runway of life, it’s the right guy or gal that can appreciate all our numerous looks.
Men love their fast cars, clothes, toys and technology gadgets. Most of all, it’s having fun to show them off to their friends. Most men hate to shop, but think they know what they want. It’s not until someone else blurts out, “What were you thinking?!“
Clothes don’t make the man (or a woman), nor do their gadgets, cars, or something else. As for some men, the thrill of the hunt might be the chase to finding the next female, a new toy, or something more. It could be a confidence boost for certain men that want to win the prize and for others to know they will always be adored. A man, or a woman might have it all, but could always be in search for something more. As for some women, the thrill of the hunt might be the chase to find that next Chanel bargain. Despite the fact, we probably have Gucci, Louis Vuitton, or Christian Dior as our collection of fashionable designer men.
Does marketing cause us to feel we are missing out on something that plays on our fears of inadequacy? One must feel secure. It’s not until we lose someone special, or review certain items in our closet to reflect on its importance and value. We look back on the good memories and either decide to hold onto it, or discard it.
The Thrill of the Hunt and the Final Celebration
There are some women that are looking to show off a man as an accessory, as there are men that seek the same to feel good in the company of a woman. It’s all in how you carry yourself when you are with a man or a woman and letting your confidence shine from within. Don’t make someone your life, but let one complement it. Be proud to have him or her by your side. Don’t let the clothes make the man, but wear them with pride.
There is the thrill of the hunt for finding clothes, fast cars and meeting that next girl or guy. There is a big difference between the two. Love isn’t something you find on the shelf, but let it find you and you’ll be surprised! One can’t play games once feelings are established, but rather be genuine and honest. Be yourself. Express yourself and don’t compromise your happiness. It’s not about adding a new look or outfit, but rather finding something or someone who makes you feel comfortable, confident and ready to put your best foot forward. Don’t follow trends with style and search to fit in with something, or someone who doesn’t flatter you best. It can be frustrating until you find it.
Sometimes spending more for that something extra special is worth a little more time and consideration. Part of finding that right man, or woman is giving much thought to the decision. It’s not something you can buy, but rather a special relationship is something you earn with someone gaining the full respect, admiration and care for that other person. It’s about finding the right one that fits, a diamond in the rough to add to that finger, a special person to hold onto a lifetime and share the colorful moments together.
