This question goes to ALL of you who's reading my blog right now. Do you really think you're fashionable enough if you're wearing a million worth gown or suit? for violent reactions i know you will say YES! that includes my self too OFF-COARSE! You might even think that i'm just being negative or insecure. Branded stuff are occasional, we don't really wear it not unless we have an important event to attend. Also a very good examples are celebrities & fashion bloggers who change outfit daily who wears it once or twice leaving it lonely on their closet after. Brands are very aggressive & powerful, they blind us to commercialization & change our buying behaviors & attitudes agree? Shall we blame the business sectors then? Hahahahha i'm a marketing guy so i can really tell. If not tell me that you don't have Gucci bag? you're plane shirts are not designers? hmmmmm Are you really buying that expensive gadget because you knew how it works? or simply just to own the brand? I always ask this questions to my self before shopping.
I do prefer people who buy designers item because they find it fashionable & most specially if it fits them vs those who purchased to foretell the world about their status. I would actually buy a Louie Vuitton Bag if its for me but its not, i'm just too flamboyant to have an elegant looking bag so no! at Baka di ko lang talaga afford for now ahahahah.
"I do think that people mistaken the power of brands and don’t understand that there are many negative sides to buying a brand. Brands can say a lot about the person sporting them and people will look at you in a different way as well. But it’s not a bad thing to have designer items, but I’d like to caution people to understand why they are buying brands and actually live by it." Anonymous Blog Don't you think so too?
