^ I did never understand such mentality tbh. I think one should feel good about him(her)self without the clothes aspect, whatever one wears. Not in a sack of course, but a proper clothes, no matter of it's price.
I'm always satisfied when finding a good item with a great price/quality ratio, because there are more important things in life than expensive clothes.

I guess some of my favorite things are designer ... their skill shows. I also enjoy supporting designers I like, so that association when wearing something from a favorite designer is a positive one. but i wouldn't say i get a frisson of pleasure from the name printed on the label inside, or consider myself well-dressed based on the label. that i attribute to myself and I have things I really love wearing whose labels would impress no one.

Make no mistake, I've never been one to have low self esteem, people kill me because you like certain things you are shallow or don't feel good about yourself (not saying thats what youre saying) but trust, I love every bit of myself regardless of what I have on, and mybeautiful husband feels the same, its called personal preference and everyone likes different things, just because one likes Dior, they are no better than someone who is content with Zara, or vice versa its what YOU want, I dont want to feel judged by people because of what I like and I dont judge other people if they feel different or like different things. I would still be the **** in h&m because thats how I carry myself, and of course there are more important things in the world other than designer clothes, I dont think anyone here said clothes were their life, but if thats what someones hobby is, or choose to do on their free time, its not a problem, and you can look great in any label if you have style

And I bet you look just as awesome in the regular label as you do in the designer label, because you have style

I couldn't agree more with all this. Especially the part in bold. At the end of the day I believe some brand's aesthetic or philosophy fits certain people. I am not really a rock'and roll kind of girl. I love statement pieces, I love colours, I love having fun with my wardrobe but then I am also very low key, I try to invest in timeless pieces, clean cuts etc.. I will enjoy extravagant brands for accessories (bags, heels) but I will lean towards classic pieces of clothing most of the time. I also don't tie my clothes/the way I feel about them because of their labels. It's not because it is Chanel that I will feel like a million bucks. It will be because I love the cut, the fabric, the way my body look in the outfit. Furthermore I am also interested in the way the piece of clothing was made. I am not a "hipster", yet I have grown more and more interesting in endeavours such as Muzungu sisters, People Tree, I have brought some shoes (toms), accessories to support specific charities etc I try to mix style/my tastes with positive social endeavours.

I try to believe that it's not all about labels but about feeling good with our purchases and how they look on our bodies. Mixing our own tastes with our budget and "philosophy".

I think it's extremely facile to buy something simply because of it's label, but a lot of the people who buy from luxury brands are there for nothing but the logos. Fashion is dying
