I'd like to share three situations I came across where I've come to realize something about the way people judge fashion nowadays.
1) I showed my friend the two romantic, pretty nail colours below from Dior's summer collection, and the first thing she said was, "You could easily find cheaper knockoff versions. Those are very common colours." Of course, she said it in nothing but a supportive manner.
A beautiful bag is a beautiful bag; price only becomes relevant when you have the intent of being a consumer. Sometimes I find when people judge an item using price as their main determining factor, they don't seem to realize or acknowledge that the item itself is worthy of some praise. When the price of an item goes beyond what they can afford, they tend to instantly label the item as bad. But the problem is that the item might actually be exquisite in its construction or innovative in its design, and price just becomes something that is tacked onto it.
