Okay, I am a fairly independent woman that has been fortunate to grow up with many fine things and opportunities.
I buy designer labels for myself and do not expect others to yet whenever I date a guy he always complains that he feels like he can't make me happy or satisfied because he doesn't have money to buy me things I like.
I'm not a snob, on of the best gifts I ever got from an ex was a wooden box from the dollar tree that he polished and waxed and put a seashell we found on our first vacation together in it. I still have it and we broke up over a year ago. He always said I only liked it so I wouldn't hurt his feelings but I truly did like it.
So why am I being judged for what I buy? I don't throw it in peoples faces or even talk about it. But like for example with one guy he was appalled when I went shopping for new bag, shoes, clothes, jewelry and makeup and spent $600 in a day. I had just got my first real job and was treating myself. Yet I get put down for that.
So how am I supposed to act then?
I do like labels and I do like my lifestyle but I also work on my car, can shoot better than most guys (I have a 12 gauge) and I enjoy getting down and dirty. Its not like I'm some prep school bred troglodyte.

I'm not threatened by girls that love labels, I just think they value the wrong things in life. That wooden box with the seashell that you value meant something, there are plenty of other things in life that mean something like art supplies to create something, an instrument to play music, a plant for a garden, or whatever. People that are living a full life tend to pay for their necessities first, put away some for retirement/a rainy day, and then with their disposable purchase items related to what they love to do, and aspects of their life that is a part of them. If you burn all your money on the opulence of expensive clothing and handbags, it says what you value is being seen. Having the latest most popular purse is more important then something with real meaning.0
