Materialism

I never really had a problem with materialism until I got older. My first very uncomfortable moment was when I reached college, a private one at that.  All of the girls had Louis Vuitton purses, Dior sunglasses, and other high-end accessories.  I felt completely out of place.

I'm a strong believer in fashion not having to be designer driven, although at times it helps.  Without coming off too cliche, your personal style should come from within, not from a label.  I wanted to make this post because it's an issue we can get easily sucked into, especially if a sale is involved.  Sometimes I feel like people will just eat up anything a logo on it, pun intended.  Hence today's featured editorial via FashionMag.


Sometimes I'm just too clever for my own good.

    I’m your big fan – your style is really original and I read your blog very often and I just wonder..if we could follow each other.. But even if your answer is “no” I’ll be still your reader <3

  2. Haha so funny!! I really like something because of what it is and not the name it has. I do have a LV handbag but that is because I really love it and not because it is LV.

  4. This is fun!

    I'm actually impressed if people can have great style with just budget pieces and not if they wear only expensive brands :)

  6. It's so interesting how mind's work when it comes to following trends. I think individuality is the best route - but I bet there would be less vegetarians in the world if a steak was stamped with a LV!
