Here’s a Michael Kors store in Berlin :
I was not born fashion conscious.
In my early childhood days, I was never into fashion neither did I put much consideration into what I wore. It all started when I joined high school.
One day I went to the mall to get a new watch that I had seen on TV. I bought the watch but on my way to pay for it I saw this pair of jeans that was to die for. I had no extra money on me and this pair of jeans was calling out my name and begging me to take it home. I took it and went to the changing room, fitted it, slipped it into my bag and walked out of the store with it. This was my first ever crime.
In my high school life I stole quite a few items from different stores in different malls where security was not tight. This one time I was in one store and saw a nice top. I had no money but I decided I was going home with it, with or without money. I did the usual and slipped it into my bag. As I was walking out, the security personnel stopped me and asked to have a look at my bag. It was all fun and games until I was in handcuffs and on my way to jail.
In my final year in high school in an effort to show my parents I had changed and was more responsible, I got a part time job as a sales girl in a shop that sold some of the leading brands in the fashion industry. I did a pretty good job since the fashion spirit in me was awakened. I had a few brands that I liked but Michael Kors was my favorite. His designs matched my personality better and his products soon became my fashion statement.
I met a wonderful man while working in the store. Thank heavens for the store for being a match maker. We got married and a few years into the marriage we got our first child then a second one. I stayed home with the children and my husband provided well for the family. I was still fashion conscious even during both my pregnancies and still had a weakness for Michael Kors designs.
My closet was all Michael Kors with a few other designs here and there. My obsession for the designs was huge. At one point it put my marriage at jeopardy. I took my husband’s credit cards without him knowing just to go buy more stuff from stores. At times I bought items that I did not need just as long as they were by Michael Kors. I maxed out some of his credit cards and this really put a strain on our marriage. He became mad at me and stopped trusting me.
(And here’s another one) :
My obsession was bad and it moved from being an obsession to an addiction. I was using my husband’s credit cards because I could not use mine. Things really got bad when we lost a car that was bought under my name and a house too. All the money coming in was used for my obsession and soon the house did not even have food. It got to a point I could choose fashion over food for my family. Since this was the source of arguments between me and my husband, I would make a purchase and try to hide it so that he could not see.
All this took a toll on my family’s health because most of the time there were no groceries in the house and my children started losing weight because they did not eat well. Losing the weight was a good thing because we all had actually gained a few pounds which we needed to lose. Actually something good did come out of my addiction.
My husband got fed up and threatened to file for a divorce and take the children with him. At this point I realized I had to change or lose the one thing that was very important and dear to me – My family. I promised him to change which I was determined to. I took charge of my addiction and joined a support group that really helped me. My husband forgave me and supported me in my recovery process.
In my support group, I met a wonderful woman who became my best friend. She was a breast cancer survivor and worked with an organization that was involved with breast cancer awareness. I volunteered in the organization and channeled all my energy and spare time into it.
