What is a Label Whore?
A label whore is someone who only wears brand name clothes.
They are known to wear only what’s in style. They often purchase clothes solely based on labels and disregard personal style. Most “Label Whore’s” cannot actually afford the clothes they buy, because much of it goes out of style within months.They’re also known to wear items once then return them back to the store.
We’ve all come across that one person who should be classified as a certified “LABEL WHORE”. While I was watching an episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Miss Marlo Hampton made me realize how annoying a “label whore” really is. Honestly If I wanted to know who and what you were wearing i’d ask, so no need to make it a point to let it be known (unless your on the red carpet being interviewed). Now don’t get me wrong, I love designer labels as much as the next fashion obsessed person, but i’m not hung up on only wearing designer labels. It’s so many cute and stylish clothes out here, why limit your choices to only well known brands.
Some people are so determined to wear only name brand clothes, they’ll settle for a knock-off version just so they can say their wearing something expensive. For some people, they base their ability to afford designer labels with their self worth. You have people that can afford to buy every designer label ever made, yet they choose to buy more affordable clothes. Then you have people buying the most expensive designer labels they can find, but they can barely afford them. Folks actually go into debt to keep up with the Joneses.
There are some people who actually turn their nose up at people, because of what their wearing. Like I said before, some people base their self worth off the things they can afford. Just because you can afford Jimmy Choo’s and next person can’t, that doesn’t give people the right to snub others. Everyone doesn’t need Christian Louboutin shoes to make them feel worthy or to feel validated.
Don’t get so caught up in the the name on the label that you loose your sense of style. The best way to enjoy Fashion is to buy what you like and mix and match different looks to create a look thats all your own. If you love designer labels then wear your labels without trying to show off or brag, because it usually makes you sound petty and shallow. If you can’t afford the designer labels you really want, don’t feel bad, the good thing is a lot of designers make more affordable lines now a days.
The most important thing in fashion is not how much you paid for your outfit, but how you feel wearing it and making sure it works for you. Let’s the clothes do the talking not your mouth!
p.s. just because your draped in designer labels, doesn’t mean your stylish!
