Charlotte Women: Victims of the Label?
Posted on 11 May 2010 by Christian N. Phillips
Walking around Charlotte, it’s unfortunate when you can look at a woman’s outfit and can instantly tell who made her dress, bag and/or shoes. Many women in the city who have a sense of style like to adorn their wardrobe with the well-known, monogramed labels; Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin and Burberry are the most popular but the list goes on.
The sad thing is, you don’t even have to slightly follow the fashion industry to know who made the garment when just seeing a woman’s bag. It’s printed all over it! Just walk around South Park mall on a Saturday!
This is done on purpose. These queen city ladies want to buy the latest designer bags, clothes and other accessories and make sure that their friends know who made it.
Why does it matter who made it? Do these women think that having the expensive goods makes them look rich, glamorous and in-style when most of the time it does the total opposite? You don’t have to tell people what your wearing in order to be stylish. Overdoing the labels and brands alerts people that you are trying too hard and can come off tacky.
Ladies of Charlotte, if you removed all the labels on your clothes, would you still exude that same confidence? Make sure when you are contemplating new purchases that you are not buying it just so you can get more head turns in the mall. Buy clothes that would look good on you and that your happy with regardless of who made it.
