“Because debt is so stylish!

I can’t believe that you are so narrow-minded to judge people on the basis of what they are or are not wearing. To assume that people would even care about the “statement of style and status” is ridiculous. If you actually hang out with people who care about “status” (aka conspicuous consumption) then you need to find new friends, and rethink your way of life. ” — Female Reader

First and foremost, let me say, the fact that you are reading my blog means that you are looking for style tips.  STYLE as a concept is something that we are socialized to care about, we didn’t just come out of the womb saying, I need to put together an outfit.  We know that style is important because it makes us feel good, and look good to others, both of which are important on many different levels (respect in the office, meetings, dates, etc).  And if you don’t care about style then you would wear whatever, wouldn’t be reading my blog, and live happily ever after.  As long as you are happy, I’m happy.  On the other hand, for those of you who feel like you want to pay attention to trend, I’m here to help.  There is nothing wrong with enjoying fashion and trend, and I’m not saying it has to take over your life or your wallet.

But people always ask, where do I have to spend and where can I discount shop.  You can’t discount shop a watch, just can’t do it.  If you’ve read any of my previous posts you know that I have recommended drug store makeup, Charlotte Russe tanks, H&M, even Marshall’s for certain things.

So, if you’re new to my blog, please don’t think I’m a materialistic witch who thinks designer duds are the end all of end all.  I can’t afford that lifestyle either.  But what I am saying is know when to spend and why you’re spending, and save as much as possible. 

I’ll tell you this much, your middle of the road suit will look like Armani if you have the right watch on.

I hope we are all on the same page now.
