Why I Will Never Wear All Designer As Well

Designer Ella of Kiss Me Stace, one of my daily blog reads, tells us Why I Will Never Wear All Designer. I definitely echo her thoughts:

"An item here or there is superb; it’s fabulous. But is it still luxury when there’s one piece in every ensemble? Big business and rich greed leave people hungry and cold, and New Money doesn’t know how to take care of it (like celebs with lavish excesses)."
As I went shopping this weekend, I realized that my taste in clothing has escalated into desiring pieces that had me asking myself, "Pay the rent or buy the top?" or "Pay the rent or buy those fabulous shoes?" or "Pay the rent or buy that gorgeous purse?" Ah, well, I decided to pay the rent... (FYI, rent in San Diego for a 2 bedroom averges $1,500 or more!)

I believe that you should always buy fabulous shoes, purses, and fashion accessories - a.k.a. "High Quality". However, when it comes to clothing, it's ok to splurge here and there on well-made pieces - especially if they're pieces that you can wear forever. However, for trendy pieces, I generally shop at places like Forever 21, Nordstrom, Charlotte Russe, BeBe, Guess, etc...
