    I very rarely buy designer.

    The funny thing is, when I get complimented on what I'm wearing, it's usually something I've picked up really cheaply, or else vintage.

    Having said that, I will pay for Seven jeans (they are $350 here!) because they fit me so well, Alannah Hill (Aussie label), and NZ labels like Glory & World, but mainly because they are unique & often use great fabric. I will also pay $$$$$$ for vintage if it's in perfect condition, and more so if it's a label, but I haven't come across many such treasures. :cry:

    In general (unless it's vintage or really special) I tend to think about $$ per wear. As long as it's well made and a flattering cut, I don't care about a label.

    Generally, overseas labels cost an absolute fortune here. And if not, they're usually the rejects that nobody o/seas wants anyway :lol: .
     
  9. Labels worht my money are definitly Tom Ford for Gucci, Posen, Helmut Lang and all my expensive jeans.

    Thanks Spacemiu :heart:

    I agree, it is absurd, $359.99 at General Pants, the only place in Australia that stocks them. Paper, Denim Cloth are over $400!

    The other option is US Ebay but it's a bit of a lucky dip.

    The next time I visit the US, I'm stocking up!!

    i agree with your list igni, but i'd say manolo blahnik is a bit 'low' lately.

    Christian Louboutin is really hot for shoes. :heart:
    Stephan Kelian is also a shoe master well worth the $$$ price tag.
