The act of shopping as an outlet for frustration and a reliever of stress.
Juju's Retail Therapy session went quite well; she visited the local Sephora for her fix of new eyeshadows, as well as the jewelry cart for a pair of new obnoxious but cute earrings. Nothing beats spending money to forget about your troubles.

Aug 7 Word of the Day
A celebrity free pass is an agreement between you and your significant other that if you meet said celebrity and there is an opportunity to sleep with them, your partner cannot get mad at you for doing so because you had agreed before hand that this person was your celebrity free pass. It is ideal if both of you in the relationship choose a celebrity free pass so that the playing field is even.
Julia met Drake at a bar, and hooked up with him, knowing that her significant other could not be mad at her, because Drake was her celebrity free pass.

an excuse for people mostly female to go shopping when they're feeling bad, when in reality their bad feelings could be released/treated in other ways.

Intensive shopping for nothing in particular than can lead to large credit card bills and inevitably immense debt or loss of property.
My girlfriend went for some retail therapy the other day because her best mate called her fat and now we have a ยฃ3000 credit card bill and can't pay our mortgage.
