Happy St. Paddy’s Day! Drink a green beer for me! This Sunday with Lloyd, let’s talk about labels. Wearing a designer label can often times mean that you are wearing a quality item. And along with that comes the perks of the best fabric and a great fit with tailoring and expensive details. In general you should expect to get better quality out of a designer label than something that is inexpensive and available to purchase where you get your groceries. 😉 However, this isn’t always the case. I know many a gal that gets caught up in the labels of her clothes and doesn’t realize the following: 1) The quality isn’t always there. Many a time you aren’t even buying the true designer of the clothing, but a knock off that looks similar to the original item. I hope you know good construction when you see it. And much of the time, as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. 2) This isn’t high school. Wearing all brand name labels is cliquish, especially when the labels show. I will be so glad when I see those Dooney & Bourke bags with their label printed on them retired from society. Esh. 3) They don’t always mean great style. Great style can be found at all price points. And wearing designer pieces is wonderful IF you know how to put them together. Or you may find yourself a walking cliche. So enjoy your favorite designers but be careful where you plunk your money and how you wear it. Would you see Audrey Hepburn sporting a Givenchy print all over her little black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s? I don’t think so.
