    Yes the bags are cute but there is no way in hell I will pay the stupid *** prices! Sorry, having them for some kind of social status is bull! I am who I am and I don't care if you don't like me because I bought my purse at Kmart!

    I Am Trying...

    I have a big problem with this, but I am trying....Actually I am scoping that LV bag in the picture.  I am addicted to name brands, thinking they are "better" somehow.

    I Have More Important Things to Worry About

    For the most part, I don't give a darn about labels. I know I prefer certain brands because they fit better, or are made better, but they are by no means designer clothing. The only name brands I care about is my shoes. I only wear Sketchers or Docs, and that is not because...

    Materialism is such an easy trap to fall into in this world; I've been guilty of it myself.  However, deep down, I see the senselessness of it.  I mean, as long as you've got clothes on your back to shield you from public embarrassment and the elements, what's the big...

    I Get What I Like

    I am one of those people who buys what they like. Though, thankfully, with my lack of funds, I hardly ever find branded things in my shopping bag. I feel that people who buy the brand names for the sake of having that name emblazoned on their shirt, or across their bag are either...

    More to Life

    Every other female I see has a "designer" pocketbook. It's over-done. I have no attachment to certain brands, so I don't wear branded shirts. To see someone in a shirt advertising an expensive brand makes me suspicious of them. I think of mostly young...
