I like designer things. I like to surround myself with beautiful and practical items which make life easier and more comfortable.
I am not so rich that I could buy cheap things. I have the purse from Marino Orlando. I bought her ten years ago. This bag looks great and will serve me fifty years more or till the time when I will be bored with her.
What Is the Point?
It does not matter how money do you have. It matters how wisely you earn them and how wisely you spend them.
One great thing will serve you many years. What is most important, it is going look good all the time. If you take good care of your items, they will serve and create the proper impression about you.
Some people do not care how they look. I agree with the saying that is most important what is inside not outside. Yes, it is true, but the first impression is important too.
Designer things, most of them, are pieces of art. They are made from quality material, have the great balance between comfort and beautiful view.
You Are Not a Tree
When I walk in the forest or the park, I see harmony, balance, and taste at creations of Nature. Trees, bushes, herbs or flowers always look great, especially if they are healthy. Nature knows how to balance colors and shapes.
I can not tell that all human beings know how to look in a decent way. There are people who turn heads when they pass. I feel lucky and happy when I see them.
I completely agree that tastes are different. Sometimes, creations of designers can be fun to see as the object which is good for the museum, not for wearing it.
We all can choose that to wear, especially if we life in a free society.
Anyway, if somebody wants to look good and save money in a long way, designer things are the best option.
How Big is your Wallet?
You do not need pile up goodies from the Internet or department stories.
Think what is most important for you? Do you need the sturdy backpack or leather shoes, which would last for you at least ten years? Of course, if you have one pair of shoes, it can be complicated. Few pairs of shoes can serve many years ahead.
Some people can afford to buy Canadian Goose jackets; some people can be content with Calvin Klein or Michael Cors jackets.
Fortunately, there are department stores or websites, where you can find designer items at the high price. You do not need to brag about from where it came. All clothes, accessories or shoes are brand new. If you do not mind to have designer things from previous collections, you can save at least 70 percent and more.
If you have gadgets from famous and trustworthy brands, such as Apple or Samsung, they will serve longer compare with other items, which break down fast enough. They do not appeal from the visual point too.
It Is Your Choice
Nobody will condemn you if you do not dress well and you do not know who Bruno Magli is. I know many professors who do not care how they look. They are deeply in their books searching for answers.
Old saying: people meet you looking at your clothes, and they make conclusions about you after your speech.
However, I think that these people who prefer quality over quantity must choose designer items. Designer products last longer, look better and help lighten up self-esteem.
