I never really understood why some people would always prefer branded clothes to clothes with no labels. I get it that quality plays a big role in promoting the well established brands but I wouldn't buy them just because they have a tag on them. Yes, there are brands that I'm loyal to and some brands that occasionally seem to find their way into my closet but I think there's a lot more to shopping than malls and retail outlets. I'm pretty sure everyone would have an idea of what I'm hinting at. Yup; Thrift stores, second hand shops, and blog shops have really good stuff and, you can get them for really good prices. Ebay is my favourite site for second hand goodies.
Coming to designer brands, I don't think I'll ever own a pair of shoes for like $500 just because it comes with a designer brand. I mean, come on! We can get so many things for money of that amount! I'm writing from the perspective of an average girl, who would soon like to earn enough to afford everything that she wants to own. Of course, this wouldn't apply to people like Paris Hilton and Oprah Winfrey.
I don't really know what conclusion I should come to regarding designer labels but I guess it's more of a personal choice, like everything is in life. If you're willing to spend the money, then go ahead! But for me, I wouldn't mind owning a nice designer bag [preferably vintage] and the rest of the money, I'd spend it on regular brands or label-less garments. They just need to look good when you wear them!
And one more thing. I finally got my Jessica Simpson Dany!!! I'm super excited to wear them. I'm being greedy but I want them in grey as well. They're so comfortable.
