What kind of person buys high fashion items? Is it someone rich enough to not feel guilty about spending so much money, or just a regular person who saved for weeks to get that pair of boots.
I think if you can somewhat afford and want the item badly enough. Designer things are more than just breaking the bank. Designers have a vision on how things are going to look. We have to embrace the designer by taking pride in wearing their stuff. Louboutin and YSL are my favorite shoe designers, but fluevog is a designer that I can spend money on and feel good about it! I've got 10 pairs of boots and shoes. Just love the look. John Fluevog has made shoes for us to make us feel:
Designers want us to feel good abour wearing the shoes as much as they enjoy making them. Sometimes the high prices are justified!
I've never worn louboutins before, their heels are a little too high for me, maybe ill try on a pair soon.
