For this post I've decided it would suit better if I were to use my manga form instead of my chibi form. Please bare with me.
I believe that IT'S A PSYCHOLOGICALLY CHALLENGING BATTLE OF WITS TO THE DEATH!!!!
Allow me to elaborate.
So you go into a shopping complex with hopes of finding the perfect outfit, the latest movie, a decent bargain or you just want to have a look around. For me, there are many things which intefere with these seemingly simple tasks.
For example, the crowds,
Anyway, moving on. Due to the amount of bad luck you've experienced at the shopping centre - hours have gone by, you haven't bought anything yet, you're emotionally and physically drained and you're really regretting your choice in footwear - you then find the food court.
But here is where you mustn't be rash. Don't you DARE go and buy something just for the sake of spending some of your hard earned cash. Sometimes when you have shopped for hours and haven't bought anything some items may seem better than they appear...
Save your money. You have been around all the shops and if there's nothing you fancy don't be upset. Wait a few weeks and come back. Decent items you desired but were too expensive will go on sale, new stock will come in and may suit your taste more, there are SOME dresses with a bit of length on them (you can always disguise it as a top if you can't bear to part with it), and most of all - have a positive attitude!! Don't be phased by the things you don't have - and don't set your expectations too high either!
Good luck, happy shoppers!
