i sometimes realize that all these marketing and advertising efforts about clothing just make me lean towards the stuff that i don't really want and i don't even like at all. unlike my taste in fashion, the quality and the elegance is usually not there when it comes to the affordable fashion. maybe instead of assuring the quality, focusing on the advertising is much more easy for them. i don't know.
but when i'm feeling like i'm leaning to the "other side", i just get some inspiration from my fashion icons and wait & look for the worthwhile outfits.
#1 Audrey Hepburn
#2 Grace Kelly
#3 Jane Birkin
edit: well i think there is a reason hermes named 2 of its bags kelly and birkin.
