Is it just me or are a lot of people like me. For years i have always shopped for outfits. I will buy from array of designers but i will not mix up the labels. I just cant do it. I cant put on a pair of designer jeans. and a shirt of another designer. I have seen people do it and i don't get it. Most Designers likely will make tops and bottoms to match. Me and my Husband went shopping and he wanted this track suit made by a well known logo and that was fine but then he picked up some running shoes by a totally different brand. This became a very heated shopping trip because he thinks Iam overacting. I just have a Big list of Do's and Dont's And this is a Don't.
are you really serious? I wear whatever looks good together, doesn't matter who designed it. what should it matter if it looks fine? I think clothing looks much better mixed and not looking perfectly matched.
I agree. Anyway, being truly stylish is being able to combine clothes and accessories from different brands to create a unique look. Check out any magazine and you'll see models and celebrities wearing a top from x, skirt from y and shoes from z. That's what fashion is all about.
Feeling you have to buy everything from one range suggests either that you lack confidence in your own taste, or you have a touch of OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder). It's not the norm, and it's not reasonable to force your husband to follow that rule.
Agreeing again i might not be right. I have never forced my husband to do anything. I have shared my opinion with him. Its really no different then having a hat to match your coat. Signature clothing with logos bold on shirts and jeans is what im talking about. Readers that are replying to the post have said they are not into logos clothing lines. So i don't think you are really understanding where Im coming from. Its kind off like my post on Video games. I like the hot trends. I do buy quality clothing. I dont not make or design clothing and have my own line. I will have to check into the OCD. Thanks for the heads up....But can i ask you a question? What is wrong with people that have Disorders?
A lot of people have "disorders" - you might almost say they're a normal part of being a human being! No one really knows how they arise: it may be some influence or advice from childhood, or a bad experience. For instance, my husband has a phobia about germs. He attributes it to getting bad acne when he was a teenager - he became obsessed with the idea that if he could avoid germs, his acne would go away, and that obsession has continued into adult life. Fortunately it's only a mild obsession!
This is very true. I never ment to upset any one. But Im not a fake person and there is nothing fake about me. Now if you dont agree with me that is fine. I understand people that don't do labels. The posting was really to get an idea of why people who do where signature clothing with big label on them will mix them up. Like a baby phat shirt and a pair of seven jeans. I know and see plenty of people here in my city do it. It is a Choice for people that can afford it. Sorry
When I was younger and comparatively affluent, I used to buy the occasional designer item - but even then, I felt it was too extravagant to do the whole-top-to-toe designer thing. Nowadays pretty well all my gear comes from charity shops - the only new stuff I buy is underwear! (OK, that was probably too much information )
I would sooner wear a whole set of clothes without logos.... logos are tacky and cheap, real designer clothes have no logos; give me cheap clothes over "look at me" any day. I think that the whole matching labels thing is stupid too, those specs in my photo.... they are D&G and cost me a bomb.... but I am wearing a tshirt which cost $5.... does that offend you?
I won't wear anything that has someone's label on the outside of it (because I don't want to feel like I was duped into paying a lot of money to be a walking advertisement); but if I did, I don't think I'd want to wear more than one clothing item with it. If there's one thing worse than being an ad for one designer, it's being an ad for more than one. ) Two of the same designer's labels strike me as "being owned by" that one designer. So I vote for, "If you have to wear one let that be it."
I agree with this sentiment, I would make an exception if they sent me free clothes! Unfortunately I dont look like a model, and I am not famous, so thats just not going to happen; lol. I do know some male models though, one of them has worked for Armani, Boss, and Vivienne Westwood..... he gets to keep the clothes and stuff.... I have to admit to being a little jealous of his wardrobe. Well, and his bank balance too!
I don't want letters (or pictures) of any kind on me or my clothes. If I worked for a company that made designer clothes it would have to be on the terms, "I'll do good work here, but I'm still not wearing any letters or names on my clothes." I don't even want my own initials on anything more than a key ring. Good-quality or attractive clothes speak for themselves. For some reason, I don't mind labels on handbags or umbrellas (probably the same reason I don't mind car manufacturers' names on cars).
See I can match my clothing without looking at the labels, so I feel pretty good about myself. I don't really need Garanimals to help me with that. Here's another gastly thing....I buy alot of stuff at the THRIFT STORE. That's right, I said it...the thrift store. AND guess what...there are so many top named brands, labels, whatever you want to call it WITH THE TAGS STILL ON THEM....so I get to dress like I'm rich but I'm not....sssshhhh don't tell anyone. So, I'm thankful for the affluent's shopping trips, splurging, compulsive buying, binge shopping, and wastefulness because it allows me to buy a pair of DKNY dress pants WITH the tags still on them for my work for a mere $2.99. So, keep on a shoppin'....I thank you for it.
I think that in most cases wearing ONE designer from top to bottom just screams "show off" and a lack of personality and imagination.
You see plenty of these in the streets of Paris, mainly tourist just arrived from London wearing their Burberry Trench coats with a Burberry tote bag, cardigan and jeans... sometimes even assorted to their Burberry children... frankly it looks awful!
Are you sure that they are from London? Burberry sells less clothes in the UK then it does in most other countries.... 75% of Burberry clothes are sold to the Japanese! Burberry has a stigma attached to it in the UK after thugs and football hooligans began making it their uniform..... it has never recovered from that... The only non-fake Burberry that I ever see in this country is worn by international students from Asia... and I work in a town with a Burberry factory! Not saying that your wrong, just suprises me now...
Sorry, about that. NO I didn't mean that they are Londoners or even British. Mostly they are tourist (sometimes Asians like you say) who are clearly doing their European tour and their previous stop was London. They do the same with Louis Vuitton once they are in France
Lol, well they have a bit more to choose from in France! More brands anyway! Chanel, Gaultier, Givenchy, Dior, YSL.... Paris are definitely the kings of fashion!
At least they are spending money I suppose, I guess that it keeps people in jobs in France and the UK! I currently live in a poor area, but most of the Burberry stuff is made here.... so good for the economy!
I once got stuck in Barcelona and worked my way back through France to London.... took me 2 days.... but the women all dressed fantastically!
they do that here too (dress from head to toe in same design), in rural WI, this time of year. Except it's not called Burberry, it's called camouflage clothing and the people wearing it are typically hidden in the woods with shotguns.
Underwear....and, yes, they DO make camo undies, swimwear, lingerie, you name it. I have a pink t-shirt...I can't make this up....with camo script across it that says "Look Good Killin' it". Killing What? What, exactly am I killing?
You don't need to agree with me, but I see it as lack of imagination because you would be wearing all the attire straight out from a dummy in a shop rather than creating your own attire according to your personality.
I see fashion as a way to express myself, no as advertising a brand (unless I am being paid for it ) For me, style is not in the brand or the designer I am wearing, for me the style is in ME. It's me who makes an outfit look good or not.
Now this funny... Because you don't agree with someone does not give anyone a right to say what they lack with out knowing them. Besides that is only an opinion and not a fact. Because they may have different views. I wonder if this would have anything to do with a lack of personality and imagination.
As I get older (grandmother), I am aware that some of my clothes are outdated and do not look age appropriate for me. I still like to look fashionable, but do not want to put people off by wearing things that look like...
According to young turks, a new line of sexy lingerie is being mass produced specifically for men that want to wear them. It's also interesting to note that the company making the undergarments are saying that...
