Designer Clothes – Quality Or Quantity

In this difficult time of recession people are trying to save as much money as possible. So I think it doesn’t come as a big surprise to anyone that designer clothes are not selling as they used to, as people prefer cheaper clothes. But is it really worth it to buy cheap clothes just to save money? In my opinion, not really. If you buy for example a cheap T – shirt from some cheap store, you might end up going there again in few weeks to buy another one. Why? Because the quality won’t be that good, probably it will shrink after a first wash and after several washes it will look as you have had it for ages. So buying cheap clothes just to save money might not be the best idea. It saves neither money nor time.
But let just make one thing clear. Not all designer clothes are expensive. Even more and more designers have realized that they have to make their clothes affordable to ‘normal people’ with ‘normal budget’. Reasons why people buy designer clothes are different. Some people buy them only to show off (even if they can’t afford them). On the other hand, some people with lots of money buy them because it is expected from them to buy designer clothes, as they belong to a certain category of people. And some people buy them as they are persuaded that they will help them to feel more confident and important.
And why do I buy designer clothes? Well, I’m one of those few women who don’t like shopping. I go shopping every few months, so I rather invest my money in some quality clothes. I pay more, but I get the guarantee that they will last longer. And with most of my designer clothes I was quite lucky as I got them quite cheap. Not an easy thing to do, but not impossible. All you need is an Internet connection and some spare time. Or you can pick the right retailer and look for bargains.
The first think we usually notice on other people are their clothes and we judge them according to them. But sometimes it can be misleading. Not everyone wearing expensive designer clothes is rich. What if the woman wearing expensive clothes is not a rich businesswoman but rather a single mum who decided to treat herself to some designer clothes for which she’s been saving for months? On the other hand, what if the man wearing baggy jeans and old T – shirt is a rich businessman who can afford not to care about what’s his wearing? So be careful with your judgments. But it’s really up to you if you decide to prefer quality to quantity. You can have a wardrobe full of clothes from cheap stores, which look like you inherited them from your older sibling, or you can have a few quality designer clothes.
