Cricism & Culture: The Ladies' Paradise - Day 2 (Consumero Ergo Sum)

I have hammered out 1,500 words in regards to The Ladies' Paradise but need to write an actual essay around my notes and pare back a LOT on the quotes.  I also need to tie in Veblem's observations as well as the ones that are on the Further Reading List.  Brain doesn't want to play ball at the moment, especially since I identify with Simmel more than I do with Veblen.

Plus...I am not a conventional female shopaholic.  I do not live to follow fashion/trends or spending sprees on home luxuries.  Now if you apply that theory to books, CDs and wine, then I am yer gal. I just don't 'get' that need to obtain or consume new goods to make myself feel prestigeous.  I have my tastes, my quirks, but they don't come to much in the economic environment. I ca understand the psychology behind it, but that is about it.
