Question for the ladies!!!

7y, 3m agoPosted 7 years, 3 months ago
So... Basically my boyfriend says I "shop too much" and I want peoples' opinions on it!!! I spend maybe £300 a month on clothes and he says that's too much! I pay with cash (mine not his!!!) so I'm not racking up massive bills on store/credit cards or anything. I'm not into designer labels because they're pretentious so spend most of it on:
ASOS, where say a dress is about £30-40.
Shoes from Kurt Geiger, Dune etc @ about £80-100 a pair
Handbags from Paul's Boutique @ £60-80 each
Accessories from all over the place at anything from £2 to £100.
Come on ladies, what do you think? A girl can surely never have enough clothes!!!! x

#13
As long as you are equally paying your way in the relationship and not asking him to lend you money at any point throughout the month, then he shouldn't be complaining about what you spend your money on.

However, if it was say a situation where he was saving as much as he could for a joint purchase, like a deposit on a house or new car or something, and you weren't putting as much in cause you were shopping, then I could see where he is coming from. But if this isn't the case, then tell him to wind his neck in :thumbsup:
#14
He doesn't think it's a problem but he takes the pi** out of me cos I'm always buying something, but I've never got myself into debt over it and always have enough to go out, petrol, buy food, pay bills etc so I just wanted to see if other women were the same as me or whether I really DO spend a lot on clothes!! x

Man Must Have Final Say... Stop Spending Women

i would say as long as you are saving at least half as much in a saving account every month then yes go for it. :thumbsup:

...........when you break it down its £75 a week.which is not even a complete new outfit a week....you actually sound pretty responsible!.its when you live outwith your means you question it...not when your BF takes the p***....give him a slap
#21
It's your money so spend it the way you want.I wouldn't spend that much on clothes a month simply because I wouldn't need it.Remember the sex and the city episode where carrie realised she spent $40000 on shoes?
#22

i wear mine till the got holes in
#23
He's right.
You should buy me something instead.

You earn it.. you spend it.
#26
I think it really depends on what you are buying, is it stuff you actually need and will wear or are you buying stuff that you probably won't get much use out of?

I use to spend £200 - £300 a month on clothes, bags and shoes but about a year ago I actually went through what I have got and to be honest, it really shocked me - half of it I had totally forgotten about! Now, I only buy pieces that I need - saves me lots of money and I don't end up with eight pairs of black shoes in varying styles!
#27
Ok you say 200-300 which probably means 400 a month. But lets average it
£250 X 12 months is £3,000

So its that or a luxury holiday for 2 weeks in the carribbean.
Which do you prefer?
I dont buy that much but I go on a good holiday every year.
#28
Well... Do I NEED it or WANT it is a hard question... I probably just want them :p But I don't spend ridiculous money on designer stuff that will only be worn once or twice, I tend to buy just a lot of normal priced stuff! For instance I can easily go to MAC and spend £100 on eyeshadow but he just doesn't understand that MAC is the best!!! Haha! x
#29
I think your bf is right that its a little excessive but if you can afford it and thats how you enjoy spending your money then good luck to you.

Cosmetics etc.. are quite pricey and I think about £150 would be average reasonable but its like everything in life, if you can afford it who cares? I spend a lot on going out and my Chelsea Season Ticket but it's my money so whilst some people spend on clothes, others games, different strokes for different folks

I think so long as you are actually wearing the stuff that you buy, I can't see any problem with it.

It is your money and it is up to you how you spend it. Men will never understand shopping so don't even try.

Although - £100 on MAC eyeshadows :w00t:

Just don't tell him what you've been buying........problem solved:-D

I thought all women knew this:whistling:

its your money, you can do whatever you like with it. He can make suggestions like most men but like most women you can agree to disagree...........a woman knows when to give up shopping and Im sure you will stop when the need arises. I used to shop like you but stopped when I had a kiddie.
#36
It's your money. As C&L says, if it doesn't impinge upon saving/joint expenditures etc, you can obviously do what you like with it.
I personally wouldn't ever spend that sort of money on clothes and shoes as they don't interest me and we prefer to spend our money on holidays, but you may make £5K a month and it's just pocket money to you.
However you need to sort out this source of tension between you and your b/f.

she never said it was his.
#38
I dont have that kind of money to spend on myself, but if I did, I wouldnt think twice about it :thumbsup:
#39
I don't think I have sent £300 on clothes and shoes in the last 5 years ...

If you can afford (and justify) spending that much, then I guess it's your decision but if it were me, I can think of much better things to spend £300 a month on, such as holidays.

chesso
but you may make £5K a month and it's just pocket money to you.

I wish, I'm a student! :?
