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.
