The Critics

One thing that I have noticed is that it’s very easy for some to step back and critique compulsive shoppers in general and Gabby and Ali in particular.

This is why I like the way that Ali explains it. She says that it’s a sickness and it functions like a drug for the addict. The difference is that in general they aren’t hurting anyone… just themselves. We (because I’m one of them) DO help the economy and we aren’t a hazard to anyone else or society. We have to work harder to feed our habit… even Gabby has two jobs.

So for the people that want to go over to the video that’s posted over on MTV’s site and post criticisms: you probably have some vice or practice that you enjoy that doesn’t hurt anyone else. Live and let live.

Real Hair, “Fur” trimmed hooded vest

Lots of things in this photo… you see Alis real hair here.

I also adore her outfit! She wearing her houndstooth scarf with a hooded puffer type vest with fur trim on the hood. The red jersey underneath is the perfect piece to layer. This outfit is so great because of how she mixes a classic like houndstooth with her “designer” (not really sure if its designer, but it doesn’t really matter) handbag and then the fun vest and jersey. Absolutely adorable.

New Laptop

I don’t think its new, but it looks like she doesn’t spend tons of time on the computer! My laptop looks so rough in comparison! 🙂

Ali’s “Barbie” Hair

Another  “look” of Ali’s that I absolutely love is her long blonde hair with the sideswept bangs. So pretty. I know it’s a wig, but its such an adorable style that looks soooo cute on her.

Love this opera wallet

Yet another thing of Alis that I love… her black and white opera wallet! I wish I could find a checked one like that, but I found a black patent one that I am going to get. Love this so much though.

Alis Short Wig

Probably just about anything would look cute on her, but I feel that she bought this wig just to buy. Before they stopped in the wig store she said something about wanting to relieve some hostility with shopping (I totally relate to this) so they went into the wig store. Not judging because I’ve done the same thing with shopping… shopping just to let off some steam or get rid of some stress.

I find the “I’m a Compulsive Shopper” episode relaxing

I can’t shop right now, but watching them shop makes me feel better. Really, it’s when Ali shops and then she talks about how its such a stress reliever for her.

Gabby never really talks about what shopping does for her. She just says “I’m in reality” to her dad when they talk about it. Ali knows that shopping is a drug for her and she talks about it like a drug.

Sooo… when I get stressed out I watch this episode and it really helps.
