I just watched the TYRA banks show this morning. The topic of the day was LABELS especially designer labels. She interviewed individuals who live for the NAME BRAND. TYRA pulled a switch-a-ru and showed them clothes that they thought was expensive but, it was actually cheaper. It was funny because they couldn't tell the difference. One girl complained that she was very unhappy when she wore a lower-cost dress. But, to her suprise she was actually wearing a Narciso Rodriguez dress.
I don't think there's anything wrong with wanting a designer label but, is it worth being bankrupt or debt for the extra dollars. And plus, I think it is how you wear the clothes. Why brag about buying expensive clothes if you can't even wear it right.
There are some great lower-cost brands that I love. My favourite ...H&M of course. I love their innovative styles and funky designs. Also, I love to hit up vintage stores. In Toronto, you can find some great ones on Queen Street West.
