Quote from: redsox1079 on November 12, 2004, 03:18:07 PMI am LAUGHING because I am the same way. What about fake Hermes Birkin bags, hello $20,000! I have a nice $50 SAK that is black, durable and I love it (and goes with my Mazda3, see economical), never ever buy a fake LV especially when they aren't even nice looking. Yes! That's my favorite! Especially because I live in the midwest, and people pronounce it "HER-meez" and will proudly rock a bag that in reality would cost more than a house's down payment, as though the fine folks at Hermes were like, "forget about the 3 year waiting list...there's a single mom in Indiana who can't pay her electricity bill who needs this purse."That said, I'd probably carry it too, if I could find a good enough replica . That's a beautiful purse. I also understand the fantasy of it, I guess, but it's all just silly to me that a girl will drop that much money on a bag or pair of shoes, and only have them be noticed by other girls.And the same goes for the 7 jeans, the juicy sweats, etc. (to tie it back into the Desi article so as not to be a total hijacker). Guys are the ones who are ultimately the target of all of this, I think, but never would be able to tell the difference between a well-fitting pair of $200 jeans and a well-fitting pair from Goodwill (the same way I can't comprehend the one guy saying he spends $1500 every 3 months on clothes--my boy wears the same three pairs of jeans and has for 2 years and I like 'em . Siiigh...I'm glad I'm done with undergrad...

i need to confess. last time I went to NY, I came back home with 5, count them 5, imitation rolexes. spent $25 altogether of course, the real rolex is over $8k, but then again, that gets worn maybe twice a year.
that is obnoxious. lol, i go clothes shopping once a year, if that. i havent even bought a new pair of shoes in over 2 years.i dont understand how people spend so much f-ing money on clothes. even though i could afford it, id never spend anything close to what those kids are spending. i guess i spend money on other things that people might consider useless, but cmon, how can a pair of jeans really be worth $150??
