many people think that fashion has something to do with high end designer items. so we've seen people wearing head-to-toe branded items. some do work, some don't work at all, and some even look completely like a walking advertisement.
to me, fashion is not always about expensive designer items. because cheap stuff and a good taste could make a good fashion. no?! if you're lucky to be able to afford designer items, then mixing it in your style will certainly be a nice touch. it's always nice to see a mix of street style and runway style that works. your ability to do so that matters not how expensive the stuff you're wearing.
as for myself, i still don't have the gut to shell out thousands of dollar on high end designer duds. i still prefer to use the money for something more useful. that's for now at least. perhaps, if i have lots of money that i don't need to make spending priority anymore, than it might be a different story *grin*
enough rambling. here are some photos of what i wore sometimes ago:
