For me 'hideous' has been many pairs of shoes bought after one too many margaritas. That WTF? moment really sucks when those boxes come in later in the week. Now, there are certain sites I completely stay away from if I've been drinking too much. 'Expensive' was my Ugg Bailey Buttons. I really didn't have the $200 to spend but the tequila made me do it. (Maybe the lesson here is to stay away from margaritas). I haven't crossed into the completely useless category yet, though I came pretty close with a certain t-shirt a few weeks ago - also influenced by margaritas and a certain smart-ass enabler on facebook.
All this brings me to this: I love hearing these stories from other ladies. So, lets have an informal little contest of sorts. Tell me your best drunk-shopping story in the comments (on here, not on facebook) and on Friday night, after I've done a little drunk-shopping myself, I'll decide who has the best/funniest/most outrageous story and send them this cutesy wine glass as a prize. Sounds fun, doesn't it?

UPDATE: 1/3/12 - The New York Times apparently felt the need to discuss this issue, too. But, they aren't giving away a nifty little wine glass to make drunk-shopping easier, now are they? ;)
