Shopping With Your SD
So I just received an ask about tips for shopping with your SD, so I just decided to make a post about it.
- Go for quality over quantity. Try and have him take you to a store like Barney’s, Bergdorffs’, Saks, etc. as opposed to “regular stores.” I love H&M, Forever 21, and Urban Outfitter too ladies, but I can buy that shit for myself. If I’m shopping with someone else’s money, I want the best, not the most.
- First Priorities: Clothing for dates, things like expensive dresses, shoes, lingerie etc. and luxury basics, such as a perfect pair of jeans, perfect white T, leather jacket, etc. The date stuff is obviously useful for, well, going on dates, and usually your SD likes to see you in things he buys for you. The luxury basics, on the other hand, give you the most bang for your buck in terms of elevating your overall wardrobe, because you have those great pieces to build on. These items will be useful even if you SD left you the next day. You have the wardrobe necessary to get a new one fast, and those piece will last you for years to come. I would also include anything you NEED on this level of priority, so if you needed a new winter coat, make sure you get one.
- Second Priorities: After getting a good base of date clothing and basics, next time he takes you shopping, aim for things you want but wouldn’t buy for yourself. For example, I do shop with my allowance, but would probably never drop a couple grand on a handbag or a pair of Loubs. But my SD might in addition to my allowance, so I’d get them then. This is also the time when you can buy more “trendy” items that you just want to have.
- Jewelry is always a great option not because it’s practical, but because you can always sell it in a pinch for a high resale value.
- On that note, ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS keep tags, certificates of authenticity, and receipts, and put them someone you won’t lose track of them. It’s really hard to resell something for a good price without proof that it’s authentic, and authenticating something without that proof is really hard as well. In the case of selling things like designer bags, the difference in values is THOUSANDS of dollars.
- Don’t stop until you get enough. Don’t worry about looking greedy. Your SD will let you know when he’s ready to stop. Remember, he brought you here to buy things, so don’t get too anxious about whether or not you can get something. He’ll let you know if you can’t.
- Keep your SD involved. Shopping can get boring for SD’s and they don’t want to be made to feel like a walking credit card. So keep him involved! Show him what you try on, ask for opinions, always say thank you! Try to keep it fun for him, and then he’s more likely to want to take you again.
