I am talking about shopping. What is your style? high quality product reasonable price or just brand name and don't care about pricing? I could be both, I love brand name clothes and other brand name products. Sometimes I am going crazy because of those too, so how about you? What make you want to buy the most? Handbag? or clothes? I treat myself with some handbags and some brand name jean and brand name clothes. I still want to have more but I think I don't really need them that much now. So, do you treat yourself with those items? What do you want to get? I love Louis Vuitton, 7 for all men kinds, abercrobie... etc. Please list some items that you owe it. Thank you for sharing

Limited with financial resources, I am not in the group of high class brands, but for comfort and health, I prefer to buy good brand shoes, when they are on sales. In general, I am not keen on clothing made in thousands. I would rather to have my clothes tailor made, at medium price, but always special.

I love shopping. i usually go for the brand names. just brand name as it ensures me that the product is high quality. for other products also i prefer brand names as they are durable and less chances of complain. i am even too crazy! i love to buy the jeans the most. i need them, it doesn't matter how much i have now. i like Tommy, Levis in jeans. i definitely own hundreds of them. i prefer blue color.

Are you serious? I always love jean, but it has to be brand name one to wear. It is good for long term use and it always nice

My style is cheap but nice looking. Luckily I have never thought the name of clothes made the person. Im also a strictly jean/shorts and T-shirt/sweatshirt type of person. Im a no frill girl. LOL! I just cant understand spending so much on a brand name jeans when you can look basically the same in a cheaper pair. Of course this is just my opinion but I would rather spend money on fun things!

I know, some clothes are great than brand name clothes and they are cheap too. I can find something like that at Forever21 or some other place.

At the moment being unemployed makes me want to save my pennies as much as possible. Occasionally my wardrobe becomes outdated and my parents take me shopping. I prefer buying and wearing run of the mill ordinary clothes, though my parents insist sometimes on buying me the latest fashion. I think the most branded goods I have bought are Levis and Lee jeans. I am far from being considered as a high class person as I have never bought Louis Vuitton and other top quality brands.

Those handbags are great but they are very expensive. Sometimes, I want to sell one out cuz I have like 4 or 5 of them. It looks good on you but god, I can't believe I bought those.

I used to try and buy the best things when I was younger but now that I am working I need to cut cost a little bit here and there so seldom do I buy an expensive thing. So I need to get more money to be able to buy more HIGH CLASS products.

I know you really mean here... price was not important to me last time but it is now... I can't buy those as it tags... I just look for the same item but for less.

I like clothes that will last. I love to shop at Ross! You can find all sorts of interesting clothes for much less. I have bought some really top brands from Ross, TJ Maxx and Marshalls. I like ebay too! Especially for my kids clothes. I dress very well, but always shop the bargains ;) As far as spending a lot on a bag, I would never do it. I carry a Liz Claiborne and it is fine for me. I do love buying them though...

Shopping -  Shopping is the examining of goods or services from retailers with the intent to purchase at that time.
It really depends on the item for me..In Clothes, Bags, Shoes I don't care if it's branded or not..less in cost is better for me as long as the clothes fits my style and what I want. For me they are all just similar fabrics branded or not. In branded you pay for the name not just for the ware. In food though it is different..I go with the branded..For health reasons. Sometimes when you pick unknown food products you just end up with something not nice to eat so you have to buy again what you want and ending up spending twice. So for food I will go with the named once since we eat them then I better get something that will satisfy the taste bud of my family. Make-ups are also good with branded..Things that gets in contact with my skin would be much better of branded just to be safe. The only clothes I buy branded is Tribal clothes. MOney is way to important nowadays to spend much on branded.

i am brand concious but not totally depend on brand ...thing should be good in look wise,qualitywise.i have goglles of raybon and crazy about police brand but to a particular design,i like woodland shoes so much and pointed shoes of any brand.ya some brands in wear like tommy hilfigger is ultimate and same in the case puma. THERE IS a very different feeling of wearing a brand like orra diamonds and vertu mobile in hand. i think there is no end of brand because where we stop another crazy brand will take place to get money from our pocket and we will be ready because of dreams ,imagination,lifestyle.so keep dreaming for better lifestyle.happy mylotting

[b][/b]I'm a practical person, I don't spend too much with clothes or shoes, I can buy those things at a cheaper price with same quality, so I don't go for branded items, but I don't buy used or second hand clothes or shoes. I buy things that are comfortable for me and that I can interchange to go with any fashion style.

HI,where can you get brand name clothes with a cheap price? outlet? I usually get them at the outlet, not the mall. ...

i love to shop. i think most things are overpriced and so i dont buy a lot of designer stuff. i did however treat myself to two coach purses and a coach wristlet recently. i got a bonus from work so i splurged. i would love to have more coach items, but i just cannot justify the expense in this economy. seriously, my rent is $590 and the coach purse i want right now is $588. it just doesn't make sense to me to pay basically my rent for a purse.

Hi and hello there smileonstar! ^_^ I so love shopping, but I'm not that high-class. I shop only at garage sales. I don't care about the name of the clothes I buy. I care about my budget. Also, cheap clothes will be look like a high-class clothes if you know how to carry it or handle it. I'm just being practical 'coz now a days, things are too expensive. Hppy MyLotting! ^_^

Good idea. Garage Sale is also good, but I dont buy clothes there... I buy household items. Good to start saving money now.

It is truth... they are last but I can't deal with them most of the time. They are expensive, like my jean (7 for all men kinds) they are over $100 just for one pair of jean... I love it but I can't spend more on those. Need to save money for my kids

I love shopping very very much! I have a passion for it and I am a true shopaholic. I never leave a mall without taking home a purchase. That is my one weakness, I think. I am okay with both branded stuffs and no-brand stuffs. My only concern is the design of whatever I am purchasing. If I like the design, I buy it, be it branded or not. I cannot choose between handbags or clothes because I adore both :) I also love shoes. The brands I prefer for everyday wear are Topshop, H&M,Zara, Mango, and Esprit. But I am also able to find good merchandise in bazaars. In fact, I love going to bazaars and I get a thrill whenever I buy something really cheap and if the design is almost identical to that of my favorite brands.

I used to addicted to shopping before but now I can't do it. I just dont want to buy too much on the thing that I don't need. I guess it becomes a habit to me. I love to go to Outlet store, there are many things there... Want to get ride of that attitude? Try not to carry enough money in you purse... No credit card, No debt card.. just enough money to buy food or drink. And you will come back home without a bag of item

I appreciate good quality but I refuse to pay a lot of money for a name! I have a couple of designer labelled dresses that I purchased in an op shop for very little! It is the only way to shop! I've found very nice unique pieces in opportunity shops. I like well made things but I cannot afford to spend a lot. I would rather treat myself by buying a good book instead of clothes, although I do love shoes.

lolz. it is ok to fall in love with anything but we don't need to own it, right? I do that sometimes. I got those brand name stuff when I was doing really great in business... but not anymore, business still good but I don't feel to buy more for those items.

I dress in fashion but am not high class in anyway. I shop thrift stores and trade clothes with friends. I don't spend much at all on clothes. My 15 yr old loves brand names and all. I used to budget and save and she would settle for less in order to have these types of clothes. The economy being what it is, she has come to see the beauty in 2nd hand. You can get so much more and it is kind of fun. If I get some extra work or do real well on my crafts then we will take an afternoon and just go around to various thrift stores. Sometimes we travel out of town and find some new ones. We get some great finds for very little $.

I am very simple. I like quality but I am not going to spend a crazy amount of money for clothing or bags. I am not into designer names, I appreciate fashion but it is not necessary for me to purchase items that I can name drop what I am wearing. I make some of my own clothes based on designs of my own. I don't aspire to be a designer or anything, I just know what I like and what looks good on me. I enjoy the creative outlet of creating it myself.
