  1. Can I just say that I love those thigh-high socks? I so wish I could pull those off and not look like a weirdo posing as a high-schooler. *sigh*
    This quote seems pretty on-point for people who like fashion, bloggers and all! It's good to not get caught up with the biggest brands and needing to have them, but to be happy on your own. (That really didn't come out well. Sorry!) An excellent quote though!

  2. I think people in search only by labels can not really appreciate the product, they are just to much into brand clothes to enjoy the touch, the beauty of a designer item ;) Have a lovely day, Little Rus :*

  3. Да, согласна!
    Хотя, некоторые люди, могут действительно чувствовать себя счастливыми, но я сомневаюсь, что это истинное человеческое счастье..

  8. This is so very true. I buy designer labels but I mix things up and I save for things I want to buy - no credit card in this wallet! xoxox

  12. So true. Although I do love nice things and I am a firm believer in investing in quality pieces which some may view as a label fixation, I know this isn't the key to happiness. Peace, contentment and happiness come from within and from making deliberate life choices based on what your heart is drawn to. If style is what you love, then it is so much more than a label.
    Have a lovely day, my friend!

  30. I always love your quotes, and this one is so true. I think it's much better to fall in love with something, dream about it, save up for it, and then acquire it as a reward for work well done...well that's the idealized version any way!

  34. So true. Sometimes the need to display a brand label reflects the need to please others more than oneself.xo
