i don't think that's true, though. I shop at normal mall stores like forever 21, banana republic, American eagle, and guys have never mentioned my clothes before or seemed to care.
and I have one friend who shops at thrift stores and the goodwill and even makes some of her own clothes and guys really like her.

Granted, I'm a little older than you are, but labels don't make a lick of difference to me. To me, Coach was a television show in the 80's, Hermes was a Greek god, and Juicy Couture was a stripper at the local peeler bar. The only one I had heard of was Louis Vuitton and, like Shane, I only knew that one because it's famous.
The stores you shop at, however, I've heard of every one of them. Not only will they look good, but since they're not high-ticket designer labels, you won't be written off as a high maintenance girl because of it. Same goes for your friend. Guys like a girl who can look good without spending a Pentagon-grade budget. It means that, if we date you, we won't need to get a second job as a world-famous rock star or an international coke dealer to pay for a day at the mall.
