I don’t get this thing about women bonding while shopping. I’ve seen it in a variety of Romance novels, and I still don’t get it. I don’t bond with friends while shopping. I lose them.
Seriously, I don’t like hitting the department stores and boutiques have a tendency to snob me out. Unless you’re talking second-hand, and I’m talking Goodwill here, not Retro Fashions, you aren’t going to catch me buying clothing let alone shoes.
Yet I have managed to bond with my mother over shoes. So has my daughter. Not from BUYING them with her, from stealing them from her.
I don’t generally have nice shoes around. I live in my crocs, clogs, running shoes, and hiking boots. What more could a girl need? Someone to borrow from on New Years Eve.
Mom gave me a ton of shoes she no longer wears. I’m thinking I need to give a couple pair back, just so I can steal them next time I visit.
What about you? Do you bond over shopping? What is that about, anyway?
