What about the Coach bags? Its cause, im going to buy my first designer bag and i want to start off with something not so expensive. Lol you get me?
Coach bags are definitely better quality than Juicy but I hate the ones with the giant C’s on them. If you’re looking for a “starter” bag, I suggest you check out Marc by Marc Jacobs. Their bags are amazing, albeit a little heavy lol
What are your thoughts on juicy couture? Do you like their handbags?
I love Juicy Couture clothes but I do NOT recommend their bags. Their velour bags are horribly tacky. Their leather bags are cute sometimes, but do not pay full price for them. I have a leather Juicy bag that I paid $350 for and the quality is horrendous; I never wear it anymore.
what are your thoughts on stores like forever 21, urban outfitters, gap, etc. ?
They’re not places I personally shop but if you like them, my opinion shouldn’t matter. :) I think that the stuff there is overpriced for what it is (then again, everything is overpriced) and you can find better things at thrift stores lol. I don’t think Urban is that great for their prices :/
You really make me want to strive to dress better and invest in quality good..obviously you are somewhat well off if your disposable income can go towards clothes and while i am not that lucky i think you make a good point about fakes, it's better to buy something good quality and nice (even if it's only $50 and not a name brand) than to spend $50 on some icky fake that is illegal and usually fakes support crime. DO you have any online shopping suggestions for good deals? THANKS!!
You’re too sweet! I’m lucky because I live with my parents, so they cover rent/our bills, so the money I make working can go to bags/shoes/accessories/clothes. :) You’re totally right about fakes. These are the websites I check daily for designer stuff for less (I should add these to my FAQs lol):
I looked at your blog and I thought she probably wouldn't like those that buy non designer stuff. The answer you gave to the person that said should you just buy fakes if you can't afford was excellent, that you should buy within your price range.. Not saying you need my approval for anything because you don't. But yeah just wanted to share. what's it like living in manhattan? xoox
Lol it’d be ridiculous for me to judge people for not buying designer stuff! People should buy things that they can afford, obviously. :) Thank you for your support! <3 :D I’m glad to have people like you following me! Actually, I live in Brooklyn and go to school/hang out in Manhattan lol, but NYC in general is awesome - lots of great places to shop, eat, hang out, and so on :)
What if you can't afford a designer bag? Or any designer clothes for that matter. Should one buy a fake?
No, the whole point of buying designer is to buy things that are of good quality and workmanship. Buying a fake is immoral, you’re just buying something for the sake of looking wealthier or showing off. You should buy nice, good quality things in your price range. Good quality leather bags from non-designer brands will outlast fakes and even cost you less, probably. I never condone fakes and don’t think anybody should ever buy anything fake. :/
Is you're icon a different person or did you just dye you're hair?
It’s me haha, my hair is just really bizarre and changes a lot depending on the lighting. It can look anything from dirty blonde to amber to dark brown to light brown, and I have natural blonde highlights and reddish highlights….I’ve never dyed it though. :)
how much is the chanel 2.55 purse? what are the dimensions?
It depends on what size you want. The precise dimensions of the different sized flaps (small, medium, jumbo, maxi) are on www.chanel.com, and the prices are something like $3,600 and up (they increase depending on the size). I don’t know the exact prices right now since their last price increase. :(
