Anyway, I'll start. Yesterday I went to the second to last day of the Diesel Sample Sale in midtown manhattan. And let me tell you there was barely anything to buy. All I've bought were winter accessories like black gloves that said "f*ck" on one and "off!" on the other! it's soo fun! bought another grey pair and a brown belt (tried looking for a black one but couldn't) and also a scarf. the scarf is amazing! I absolutely love it! i love diesel but there wasn't anything else to buy. there was no fitting rooms so i couldn't buy the jeans!! grrr..anyway, the each pair of gloves was $5 bux and so were the scarf!! the belt was $10 - pure leather...SCORE!!! I LOVE SAMPLE SALES!! I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE BARNEY'S WAREHOUSE SALE LATER NEXT MONTH!!!

but shap...why would you do a warehouse sale when a true shopper knows that those are the dregs? c'mon now...:)

yeah they are...but what can a poor college student do? :(
seriously though when you're just looking for basics like jeans and cashemere sweaters there's nothing wrong with going to barney's warehouse sale and get them for wayy below wholesale...saves me the money to splurge on my shoes...

I'm a shopaholic. Seriously when it comes to clothes, I have some I bought a few months ago still in bags I forgot about buying. :eek: I'm addicted to: Abercrombie, American Eagle, Hollister Co, Gap, Banana Republich. I am a slave to fashion this thread might get out of hand in a hurry. :bounce:

out of all those brands banana republic is the only one i can stand. sorry but the other brands are too "white middle suburban america" for me. my current fashion fix is marc jacobs and french connection.

you said it sista, i was gonna get a wallet from louis vuitton but there are so many copy cats that you can't even tell which is real and which is not real. that is why those prints are not cute: gucci, fendi, burberry and coach have the same prints on their accessories and it's hard to tell unlees you are really analyzing it so i ended up buy a wallet from prada.

Never liked Louis Vitton in the first place, it's nothing more than a name.

I like nice clothes but don't want to spend too much on it. All those big names, that's not really my style.

My favourite store: Zara

I like Bikkembergs shoes but don't feel like spending that much on a pair of shoes. Those shoes are unique.

My father loves Hugo Boss and he looks great in it.

I don't know much about Gucci clothes, etc. All I know is that I don't like their bags or purses. Too kitchy.

Zara is great. They have a few stores in NYC and I have couple of their pieces. Zara is soo trendy and very European. I like their clothes. But right now I'm just really into Marc Jacobs.

see since I'm a guy, I usually just buy my shoes from Banana Republic (I love their loafers!! I love them! I love them!! and they aren't too expensive so I can usually buy 3 or 4 pairs at a time) Kenneth cole has great boots and they are reasonably priced but I love Gucci shoes. Especially the ones that I can wear dancing and for formal events but they are a bit pricy so I usually just buy them one at a time. I usually go shoe shopping (like serious shoe shopping) once every two months.

But for women, I have to go with the Manolo's - they are really cute.

me and my sister got into an argument about it one day. We were watching "The Fabulous Life of Brittney Spears" on VH1 and they were talking about how she buys only the best shoes, Jimmy Choos and I was like,......umm, Manolo Blahniks are so much better and she was say that Choos were and well, I think I am right!!!.....i know, pretty stupid, but im passionate about shoes!

Never heard of either Choo or Blahnik. Just checked out Choo's website and EWWWWWW!! Such ugly shoes. The few pairs I saw of Blahnik look much better, but still not my style. I don't like pointy shoes.

i hate real trendy or showy things. im more into classy and timeless pieces.

like monograms/prints, i would NEVER buy them. too showy for me. my boyfriend bought me a coach bag* as a bday present for me last year, it kinda looks like this:
http://www.coach.com/assets/product_images/colord2/9326_SVRD_d2.jpg
except its a limited edition leather... called doe. a real pretty natural looking color. bigger too, something like 11x15 which is HUGE, but im one of those type people that carries their life with them everywhere.

i see so many lil girls walking around in the mall with lil signature coach purses that cost, tops 150. i prefer to go with the low-key, classier, non-gaudy, expensive look. :devil:

im sooo excited for fall, im tired of this summer bullshit. i love turtlenecks, comfy sweaters... ooh, i cant wait.

my main obsession is panties and bras. im all about the expensive undies. boyshorts, mostly.


*gotta love a man who knows what you like!

I like Prada and Diesel. Prada is hot, whenever I get that much money and have the desire to spend. Usually on a jacket or a new bag. :o

I don't just like the brands I named above, as for a more urban look I like Ecko Red. And tshirts from: Fox, Hurley, Volcom, Roxy.... etc.

I'm a slave to fashion. :D

decemberlove, Nice bag.... Coach fan I see! ;)

I agree with you, some of the summer fashions are just :yawn: When you take into account there is only so much they can do with a tshirt and shorts.

I bought a pair of these shoes the other day: (I know they are mens but they are still cute with a pair of jeans) http://www.journeys.com/images/products/family/670103.jpg


Plus I also love Birkenstock sandals. Call me old fashioned but I like the hippie look of the Arizona's in their line. :p

Shoes seem to be my big addiction. I have so many pairs I don't know what to do with them all.

my mummy has a purse similar to that in black. some to think of it, she's got tons of purses from coach. she loves coach and louis vuitton and kenneth cole and burberry. i guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
