|I found an article on the net titled Has Luxury Become Ludicrous?
You know what my answer is to that. HELL YEAH!
I turned this articles title around to say that the price of fashion as a whole despite so-called luxury items has become completely bloated in a very harmful way! Many young women are going into thousands of dollars of debt – bad debt trying to keep up with the “high price” of owning luxury goods.
That particular articles speaks on the high price of handbags and other accessories featured in the monthly fashion rags. I also found forum comments from women who were literally outraged by the expensive price tag of the clothing and shoes that are featured in such magazines as More, Lucky and InStyle. Many of them canceling subscriptions or not subscribing at all because they can’t relate to the price points of the products they are pushing between their glossy pages.
Needless to say, I was relieved to see the annoyance of many and to know that I was not the only one that was experiencing sticker shock when I thumb through these mags. It’s also good to know that I’m not just being overly frugal or unreasonable about what I’m willing to spend (even though I think I cheaper than most about buying certain things). I still feel like I’m in good company, because there are still some women out here with good, common sense. All is not lost on those who are easily influenced by the rantings of the insatiable fashion industry and the designers that feed the flames.
|Handbags are my biggest pet peeve. They are completely out of control. It’s quite insane and utterly shameful that someone could resolve in their head to pay $1700 and well into 5 figure ($17,000) range for a few pieces of leather sewed together with some bobbles throw in for visual effect. Do you know what that type of money can do for some of the hard-pressed kids attending public schools that are all crumbling, literally from budget cuts as we speak? That kind of money? Try to break that down for me so it makes some kind of immediate sense, please. Celebrities in the tabloids are the foot soldiers of mass promotion. I don’t think a lot of women process the fact these celebs have these bags on loan from stylist or they are given freebies for direct marketing purposes.|
|A great deal of their clothing are also “on loan” from stylist studios! They are not buying this stuff ladies!! Heck they don’t even pick it out! Every outfits is styled from the red carpet to casual shopping at Kitson. Then they turn around and bring the majority of that stuff right back to the studio. Some women are actually trying to keep up with this mess and its driving a lot of them into personal bankruptcy. This is not just a U.S. trend, this is a global thing. It just makes you want to yell “wake up and stop the madness!” Clothing, shoes and accessories should not be eating up 20% or more of your monthly budget, yet some women are buying-in lock, stock and barrel to ideology that owning the latest designer offering each season is an investment and very necessary. Subjecting themselves to massive amounts of frivolous debt, when those funds could clearly have benefited them in more productive ways or allow them to benefit someone else.|
