Givenchy, Louis Vutton, Chanel, Celine, Prada, these are brands majority of us know or have heard of. Target, Kohl’s, Nordstrom, Forever21, they all ring a bell too? From $1000 to $100 it all comes down to quality and labels. I get the quality but why is the labels that matter the most? Why spend a car’s worth on a purse when you could get a replica but with a Target or Nordstrom label? Why spend thousands of dollars on something that could maybe be used once because it’s too expensive to get dirty again? I understand the whole quality over quantity and I am all for that… to a certain extent. However, when it comes to getting use out of something and being smart, labels shouldn’t be an issue.
When purchasing high-end brands, do they make you a better person, do they make you happier, and do they bring purpose or use to your every day life? I always wanted to know what makes someone purchase something that is unbelievable expensive? What makes the price of the product, the name? The fabric? The material? Does it make you happy? If so, is it a temporary feeling until you buy something else to replace it or is it a long-term feeling? What causes the butterflies in your stomach the simple or the extravagant? Do they make you grin from ear to ear because you know some of the celebrities have that latest and greatest piece? If so, why does the celebrity make the piece? Shouldn’t it be the designer, since they are the one who designed it? Why not buy it because of them, not because of who has worn it, purchased it or touched it? When purchasing an designer item in the price range it is in, you should know more than just how to say the label name. It should be an investment piece to the point where you know what’s behind the label.
