how do you define window shopping?
literally : looking at shop windows without buying anything..
normally : spend time comparing prices so that we buy optimally..in addition waste a lot of time..
laterally : generate ideas to save cost! ( according to me)
i am going to elaborate neither literally nor normally..just simply on laterally definition..generate ideas so that we should not buy unnecessary and purposeless things.
simple example : clothes
have you ever heard this word? fashionista?
1. a fashion enthusiast; someone who sets or follows trends;
2. woman working in the fashion domain (as a designer, journalist, model etc.);
3. woman passionate about shopping;
as a hard core window shopper* laterally speaking~ i disagree the stigma " all window shopper are fashionista" ..allow me to explain..
Latifa: i want to buy new clothes.. mine is old and outdated.
Aisyah: a month is consider old? dear,it cost dollars.. let me see..
Latifa: it just doesn't suit my style anymore..
Aisyah: come.. lets "WS"..
Latifa: the shopping centre is far enough, we do not have time.
Aisyah: what is the use of your iphone? ^_^
Latifa and Aisyah search for new trendy clothes..with minimum price online..
Latifa: it is too far expensive..triple!! hmmm..
Aisyah: stop thinking where to find more money to buy it.. let us generate ideas to make it as good as new..like the one we just saw..
Aisyah: we can remake the clothes..for touch up, you can add on bead, embroider or even buttons..re-cutting would be nice also..
Latifa: i do not have time to do all these thing..its just gross..everyone will know it is a makeover..
Aisyah: just buy a stitch-glue and try it,or else Mak Cik Halimah is a good tailor..be reasonable.. your parents are not money-banker..and one more Latifa "do not display yourselves like that of the times of ignorance(jahiliyyah),(surah al ahzab 33: 33)"
