OK, I actually can’t afford 99% of these. Can always daydream and wish! I can’t contemplate on spending so much on a bag or a pair of shoes whatsoever. Even I think Topshop is expensive never mind these. If I do have a very good pay job, I probably still can’t contemplate on paying a lot. I dislike LV, Gucci, Burberry and other generic brands that are popular with Asian fobs/bbcs (not hating!), as it doesn’t seem unique anymore, not too keen on the main design and can see them being worn/carried around everywhere I visit. Also my parents dislike designer stuff so I do take after them. Guess being raised in a 98% Caucasian, rough and not wealthy area has an influence on this. You don’t want to have designer anything around here otherwise you’ll be robbed/vandalised. Designer possessions here very very very rare. To be honest, I actually haven’t seen anyone wearing/carrying designer possessions in my 15 years of living here.
Here is my designer wishlist:
Jeffrey Campbell isn’t actually as expensive as the others. Does it count as designer still? I actually do have a pair on the way! Exciting. But it did take me a few months to decide and look at the factors etc. I shall blog about them once they’ve arrived! Cannot wait!
My aunty in Hong Kong said the reason people (in Hong Kong and China) only buy these, especially LV, is to show off which I think is stupid. She even told me that she bought a small LV bag to show off even though she doesn’t use it or like it.
In my opinion, if you can keep affording to purchase just designer brands, go ahead. Just don’t look down and judge people who cannot (e.g. me) and they won’t judge you. I personally don’t care about people purchasing designer goods. Many friends have and it doesn’t bother me. But these are good gift ideas *hint hint* but I wouldn’t accept them since I would feel bad and wouldn’t be able to afford anything as expensive to give back.
What’s the most expensive item you own?
