Everywhere I go, it seems as if everyone has a Coach, Prada, or Chanel bags/wallets/coin pouches. Or I see people wearing designer clothes that cost a lot to own. It seems to me that these are very important status symbols. Why? How important are designer labels? Are you more attractive to people who wear them?

Ok, the whole thing about having designer stuff is to look like you have money. Which, some people do. Others save up so they can have this symbol of wealth. And I'm not trying to offend anyone with my opinions here.
For people who have money, I think it can just become part of their life. They may actually like the look, and don't mind spending the money. Or it's the whole symbol thing of "I have enough money to spend on designer things."
For people who don't have money, it's to make themselves look better. I go to, well there's not really any good way to put this, the ghetto school and if you have a designer purse you look better than others.
Basically, it all goes back to mentality and how a person thinks.2
