dont u think britain has become too obsessed with looks and fashion and the perfect human being, at the moment ive noticed 2 programs on tv dedicated to loosing weight (there may be more) designer clothing has rocketed to an all time high with people letting themselves get in dept for the sake of fashion, do u think its time to stop?

Well really its upto the person thats paying the £ because if that person is happy and feels confident in the clothes they buy...what does it matter how much they spend?? Im a complete fool when it comes to shopping...i go into the likes of Burtons etc...and am constantly buying new things all the time! Cant help it....spending is an addiction remember! And what can i say i love buying new stufff, who doesn't???

But yeah it does get outa control sometimes!!!

hello, i think its about how you feel, if it makes you feel good to spend alot of money on nice stuff then thats fine. but spending money on anything makes me feel better!
