Why are people willing to spend a lot of money on name brand clothes? when you can find the same or similar to the same at thrift shops and swap meets etc. with the style that's "in" today I'm pretty sure you can. I mean who cares if you're wearing a forever 21 blouse or guess jeans .. Don't get me wrong, they do have some cute clothes at times.
People don't have to know what brand you are wearing or not and the person wearing the clothes doesn't need to exhibit what they are wearing either...I actually find that that stores like h&m or forever 21 sell clothes that are neither my style (except for jeans) nor selling quality clothes comared to other places I went to shop to...but I don t tell people I wear expensive stuff...
They have cute clothes, and nobody really knows that I'm wearing that brand unless they look at the tag or I tell them. The thrift stores I've been to weren't my style, and I went to Plato's Closet before and they were just too expensive for old, out of style, previously worn clothing.
