Do you ever think about how and why you shop? Is it out of necessity? As therapy? To problem-solve? Earlier this week a friend asked me to participate in a survey about shopping habits. For an hour, I laid it all bare, telling a room full of random strangers about the things I purchased, why I bought stuff, and my retail shopping experiences. And let me tell you, it was not pretty.

Well, that was depressing, I thought, as I gathered my things and left the small conference room where I’d confessed all my wicked shopping sins. I might just have a problem. In the spirit of spilling the dirt and getting it off my chest, I suppose I should share my shopping truths with you.

minimum wage dress

My wallet thanks you, SheLikes.com. The British shopping website has created the MWD (Minimum Wage Dress) for all of those whose salaries are scraping the bottom of the barrel. The cut-out mini-shift goes for £3.68, the hourly minimum wage for teens in Britain. For us Americans, that totals about $5.68 – or a splurge at Forever 21. And while we agree with Refinery 29 that this minuscule price for working British teens might mean lower wages for working non-British teens, the company denies any sketchy business in production: “We fully support British manufacturing and are dedicated to working with UK-based suppliers, despite being able to source cheaper production rates overseas.” Still, the MWD is a hit already. Two of the four colors are already out of stock on the website. What else can you expect for a country that regards pricy TopShop as a bargain? [Refinery 29]

This is why I’m both intrigued and excited about a new program called Shopinterest that allows you to turn a Pinterest board into an online store. Here’s how it works…
