We have every right to buy whatever we want, it is up to our choices. From the high-end designer to random clothes, everything has its own price. I am not going to lie, but the expensive designer products do draw an attention to the social media faster than those normal items. Obviously, they are the luxurious things that girls like us have always wanted to have. If I had a million dollar in my savings, trust me, I would buy everything from D&G to Moschino every week. However, I am not in that stage, so I literally can't. The fact that, I am still working as a blogger, fashion marketeer, and freelance writer, I still need to survive ha! However, don't let this perspective of the rich&famous lifestyle in the social media get you. Being a fashion blogger doesn't mean we have to spend loads of budget on the clothes we wear. I have spent money way too much on the FOOD because I am just a girl who enjoy eating (lol). Therefore, I don't really mind buying cheap clothes or fast fashion brands because sometimes they have a great quality with a funky design that I can't even find at the department stores.
THERE'S NOTHING WRONG TO BUY THE DESIGNER'S AND FLAUNT IT ON THE SOCIAL MEDIA, BUT IF IT IS MAKING YOU BROKE EVERY MONTH, THEN JUST SAVE YOUR MONEY
We all need to treat ourselves from the hard work, and special occasions such as birthday, Christmas, etc..There's nothing wrong with it because I do love treating myself too! However, if you are thinking about buying designer bags, cosmetics, clothes just to show off on the Instagram or Facebook, you can...but if it leads to the point which makes you broke af then this is not the ideal option. How can you eat all the shitty meals because you have no money left?! I can't. I prefer delicious and quality food to the fast food every day. I know it feels great after purchasing the item (s) and posting the photos online. However, does it really satisfy you or the social media? When I buy those stuff, that means I really love them. And I do think that such activity is like an investment. Like when my mom has passed the gorgeous Nina Ricci leather bag to me. It is a great feeling to own something elegant and expensive from my mom's generation. It is the 'heritage'
Actually, there are a lot of choices we can choose these days (I mean compared to 10 years ago). A lot of fashion retailers have expanded not only the multi-channel way, but pure online also. Look what Boohoo provides, some of them are incredible cheap and fashionable. Though, I have had a bad experience from this online pure player, I still think that the price range is even cheaper than ASOS and Missguided. Missguided are not that cheap, but the quality is better than Boohoo (in my opinion). So, it all depends on your concern about the quality. Besides, there are many thrift shops and street fashion market, which offers lots of cool stuff in a reasonable price. I love the street market the most because the products are more interesting than some of the fast fashion retailers. I don't really spend the money at H&M anymore, I think their clothes are pretty much the same and the size has been the issue lately. I don't know, I am really picky when I go shopping. When you know about the manufacture, as well as, the marketing behind these beautiful clothes, you will know why I just can't spend $$$ on the clothes that actually made under $$.
My boyfriend always says "It's not about the price, it's how you make the cheap stuff look expensive" I do agree! Low price fashion clothing is like a hidden gem. They are cheap, have a unique signature, and we can just throw them away without considering how much we spent. You know, if you buy an incredibly expensive item (s), but still don't know how to mix&match, it still gonna look cheap anyway (#fact).
So, for those who afraid about this material thing, just forget it and wear whatever you want. It doesn't matter what you wear because at the end of the day your style will speak out for who you are. The price tag can't define your fashion taste anyway :)
