    Shopping can be an absolute nightmare but THANKFULLY, Nicole Richie is here to help! The fashion designer sat down with BuzzFeed at her House of Harlow 1960 pop-up shop in L.A. to explain proper shopping etiquette, and what to do in the WORST of any shopping situation.

    1. When a shirt falls off the hanger.

    2. The store employee asks if you're "looking for anything in particular?"

    Nicole: You're not going to hurt their feelings. They probably don't want to help you anyway.

    3. You're shopping with a friend and both pick out the same shirt.

    Nicole: A few of my friends we'll share it, we'll husband and wife it!

    4. You accidentally stand too close to the store entrance and the alarm goes off.
