Its stupid. Once you get to a certain level financially it no longer matters what the Jones think, what kind of car you drive, or what clothes you wear. Those people who are out trying to impress are usually always overextended.

I never got into sneakers like other New Yorkers, I don't see the point of $200 -$300 ugly colored shoes that they literally fight and kill for. But I would rather pay the bills, hold off and buy a designer professional dress swear because apparently SVPs and VPs take notice and recommend you for a higher paying job.

Yah lol the Sneaker thing ain't my deal. But I prob would love a new handbag worth that $$$, or a dress. We live in a celebrity cultured t.v reality and that's not normal. We need to realize that our materialism can only go so far, hence retailers sucker us in, lol I laugh at the desperation retailers have for the holidays. Really a $1000 amazon card for buying a new ford, whatever! Give me that $1000 and I will buy another car for someone else that needs one! Dips
