I like buying clothes. I'm really one of those bang for your buck types, so I would want to know what I buy is worth the money I spend. So I do intend to buy on the expensive side of things, well because "you pay for what you get" But I'm curious to know if any other GaGer, goes through clothing stores and checks the prices PLUS checks the clothing tag/label? (Clothing tag/label as the small label hidden in clothes that states what material is used to produce the clothing item) I've noticed a lot that some clothing materials don't really state what they really are, unless you have a look at the tag/label? (I should do a mytake on this to really) Is it something you consider when shopping for new clothes over a significant amount, that you wouldn't really normally spend on?
I like to think it does, but when I'm actually out there shopping I never check the tag regardless of how much I'm spending. It's my own recklessness I suppose. Although after years of shopping, you do get a feel for what material they are without looking at the tag.
Back in uni, when I was strapped for cash. I'd go to the designer stores, check what's in style, take a mental note. Then i'd go some place cheap and try to replicate the style. It worked out pretty well. Spending $20 on a pair of jeans rather than $100. For example, my glasses which I had gotten -a lot- of compliments on... Cost me $10. The truth is, no one has to know.
Ahh, this sounds so bad of me, I NEVER check the price of stuff, I really just buy it and leave. But then when my mom looks at it and is like: "Um... honey, this is pretty expensive, did you even look at the price?" Then i'm all like "WOAH OH HELL NO". Same thing with my friends, they warn me about the price. But usually I actually do look for sales, i'm a pretty smart shopper when i'm actually aware of things lol.
I don't care about labels, who made the clothes I like, the brand or anything like that lol. I don't see the point in spending a lot of money of clothes because of a label when I can find clothes that look exactly the same online for cheaper.
