Who doesn’t love designer clothes? Don’t get me wrong, I fully admire the girls who can shop at thrift stores and somehow put together an outfit that looks like a thousand bucks. But trust me, even if you are a super crafty/hip collegiette, no one and I mean NO ONE is immune to the mystical powers of a $300 DVF wrap dress.
I’m not a “label horse”, but I like nice things, and I definitely don’t think I’m the only one. Collegiettes, are any of you in the same boat? Do you sometimes see red bottomed Louboutins strutting through your dreams? Do you count Michael Kors watches to help you fall asleep? (1 quartz rosegold…2 quartz rosegold…zzzz)
At the end of the day, I am a “poor starving college student,” so I shop for clothes on a budget (mostly at Forever 21). But in the future, I wouldn’t mind having a closet filled with little LVs (Louis Vuitton, of course!) and upside down triangles (Prada). But why? Why are “labels” so important to me and so many other collegiettes? And how does this label-obsession play out in our love lives?
