Would you pay $2,400 for a pair of boots? No, what if they were Louboutins? Would that make it any easier for you to spend your cash if the designer was well known? In the day in age of social media higher brands are all the rage, you see more designer clothing being advertised. By why is that, is it because the new age fashionistas only care about designer labels? Perhaps the more budget friendly companies prefer to advertise their clothing differently. In the picture above I have Timberland (retail value $150.00) Christian Louboutin (retail value $2400) Walmart brand boots (retail value $40) and Gucci boots (retail value $1300). If you take the Gucci label off could you tell the difference between the Gucci boots and the Walmart boots? Personally, I have never been much of a label person and I always tend to buy clothes that are on sale. I don’t believe you have to break the bank to be fashionable. Truth be told however, I did purchase the Louboutin boots. It was my first time buying boots, or any clothing really, that cost that much money. Why did I buy them though? It has always been a dream of mine to purchase Louboutin and in the world where men clothing doesn’t take much risk I instantly fell in love with the different look of the boots. I first saw the boots in 2017 and worked for an entire year putting money back to save and buy the boots of my dreams. When I finally purchased them I did have a sense of “wow I did it” when walking out of the store. I tend to get a lot of compliments when I wear the boots, but they aren’t the boots I wear on a frequent basis. In my closet I have boots that I’ve only paid $10 for then I got off a clearance rack and get the same amount of compliments when stepping out. I don’t now, nor will I ever, feel you have to spend thousands of dollars to be fashionable. Most of my outfits from head to toe cost a total of no more then $40. Truth be told, I typically don’t like spending over $10 for a pair of what some would call throw away jeans. Primark has become my favorite clothing store to shop at, you can get an entire wardrobe for roughly $200. It also has the biggest men section of any store I’ve ever been through. To each is own when it comes to shopping and buying designer labels, however, I believe fashion doesn’t have to break the bank.
