I'm a bit of a clothes fiend, so deifnitely LOVE clothes shopping and all things associated with it.
My wardrobe is always bursting at the seams and I seem to be pushing my DH's little section further and further away , but evenso, I'm not a clothes hoarder and do try and cull when things have seen better days or are soooo last season .
I loathe clothes shopping with others though, I only like to shop for clothes on my own, so definitely sans kids.

I love it when I've found something new, especially a lovely new dress - but the shopping itself - I loathe it. I hate trying something on for it not to fit or look right, get dressed again, try something else - repeat that about 10 times and there's my shopping day. Cannot stand it.
I don't buy new clothes that often, will occasionally buy something on sale, but I'd feel awfully guilty if I were like my SIL and only wearing things for the current season and a new outfit for EVERY outing.

I love clothes shopping but since having dd I definitely don't clothes shop as much especially because the big shopping centres are 45 minutes away and it's hard taking her at times. I shop online a lot these days it's heaps cheaper and I don't have the hassle of the crowd and a restless dd

It's funny, When I need clothes and go to buy them I can NEVER seem to find any that I want which ends up leaving me incredibly frustrated and hating shopping.
Then there are those days I'm just casually strolling past the shops, no money, and I come across several item's of clothing that I just absolutely adore!
So what do I do? I buy up big on those days and on the others I just go home.

Everyone assumes being a size 6, you can just walk into any store and find 50 things.
Wrong! I hate clothes shopping. I can never find anything I like, ever.

I like buying new clothes, but I hate "going shopping," as in, looking in a million shops to find something. I like to shop online. So far, because I know my measurements, I've not had an issues. I got some dresses that were a little bigger than I had wanted (I was unsure of which sizes to go with) so just sent them back and got a smaller size as a replacement. No biggie.
I can't wait until my clothes go out of shape because I've lost a bit of weight and can't fit into things I fit into this time last year... so I've got some new outfits.
I don't like shopping in stores because I am not "in fashion," with my style (things are so shapeless and 80s now... hideous in general IMO, but even moreso on my body shape)... and most things that fit my waist are too tight on the bust/hips... pinup/rockabilly styles often cater to this though, and expect me to have more of an hourglass shape than regular stores do... so it works well for me to shop online instead.
The only annoyance is when you want something from overseas but shipping alone is about $40 for one item. Pfft to that.

I enjoy it! Though only if I have money to spend and time & no jasper & I'm not feeling tired or fat.

I hate it. Would probably like it more if money wasn't an issue. I have a couple of new tops but that's because I was given a voucher that needed to be used up.
What i'd really like is nice clothes that fit perfectly to appear for free in my wardrobe.. That I could handle

Love shopping for DH, DD or DS. Could spend all day shopping for them. Hate shopping for me with a passion. Esp if they're all with me, I feel so nervous, and anxious. Everything looks horrible on me, so normally I look and leave feeling depressed and hating my body.

I hate it! I have hated clothes shopping my entire life. I refuse to try on anything before I buy it as well. If I wasn't pregnant, I'd be in the same clothes that I've worn for the past few years. Occasionally, I'll buy some new stuff, but rarely.
I had friends come over three times in one week. Each time I was basically wearing the same thing.
