I love browsing through pretty stores. So, I thought I’d post my process of photo shopping–not to be confused with the computer software. It’s not really a “first” experience, but my original post for trying something new got busted today. (apparently Florida isn’t a test market for Chick-fil-a’s new sweet potato fries. So I excitedly dragged my husband there after work to try them just to have those cows break my heart 😦 Damn fine print…I was blinded by hungry enthusiasm)
It actually started when I got my smartphone. I found the best way (without making rushed choices or missing a deal later) was to take a picture of a potential buy. Then I take them home, give Jeremy the photo tour and even hold up my phone to the potential space to get a feeling.
This was another piece from HomeGoods that caught my attention.
When I was shopping for a couch and dining chairs, I went to so many stores (some with the same chairs but different prices) that taking pictures was the best way to keep it all straight.
And works for more than just house stuff. When I was invited to attend the Runway to Dignity event, I did some speedy shopping but was too afraid to pull the trigger on any one outfit. So I snapped a few pics of my favorites and brought them to a friend at work as well as texted them to another fashionable friend for opinions.
They never would’ve been able to go shopping with me last minute so it was super efficient.
It’s even great when I have zero plans to buy anything but want to peruse the new merchandise and make mental notes for later.
Did you try anything new today? What’s your shopping method (window shopping, photo shopping, buy it then return it if it doesn’t work)? Oh! And if anyone tried the new fries let me know!
