How do people afford such high end clothing? Currently I’ve been in a information overload with fashion, and I keep seeing people my age ( senior year ) with high named brands and I’m just like to myself, wtf how do I get that? I have a min. paying job that i haven’t gotten a single shift for in like 2 weeks and i’m saving for a trip :$. So I was wondering do they have like highpaying jobs as models or something? Or do they just save months for it? How do you guys budget your money :$

Well, I’m say this…..1) you never know what other students parents salary allow them to purchase. Some people are really making high salaries and buy very expensive items for their children. 2) some people have “connections” in stores and are buying HOT merchandise

One thing I had to learn as a young person, do YOU. I used to try and “keep” up with people not knowing how they were getting the merchandise then I was the one with the 2,000 credt card balance.

Don’t get into the “designer” trap, I like a lot of expensive things, I use it for motivation and coordinate my clothes in the same style as designers but buy them from cheaper places. You can have the look but don’t pay the price.

I used to have a saying. “The only one who has to pay for it is YOU”….so when you are in DEBT you stand alone. You can be just as FLY shopping in regular stores and of course watch for sales at saks,macys and nordstroms.

I always wonder the same thing. I see all my friends with new bags, shoes, clothes, etc. but I agree with sunshine, you can get the same look for cheaper, much cheaper if you really try! Don’t worry about the expensive things others are wearing, if you like a $10 pair of heels more then a $1,500 pair of heels then who cares! Only YOU see the tag and only you have to pay for it.

Boyfriends or parents. When you work for your cash you don’t really justify spending hundreds on something just for the label.
