Unlike the ones that shout from the rooftops about how they go to thrift stores and how secure they are in themselves not to care about such frivolous things like looking good.
I've dealt with those.

Some days it gets a bomber jacket. Others it is a cardigan or hoodie. Another time it gets a moto jacket. They all work. When I got it I wore long drapey cardigans that have since been retired.

It has a little barely noticeable piling. It has survived weight swings. Honestly I’d love a similar higher quality one.

Today I am totally on trend with animal print and leather sneakers.

I like the idea of “better, fewer, things.” But some of my cheaper things have held up a little too well.
I went all out on H&M once. They had some items that were different from what I normally wore at the time. I felt a little uncomfortable wearing them at first, but they were a great way to express my unique style.

It's like w/ us regular, common folks...Some of us may never dream of buying Walmart clothes because we don't like the styles &/or think it's too cheap. So, some wealthy people think that about Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, etc. clothing. They're just in a higher money bracket.
Actually, I've noticed Walmart changing it up a bit when it comes to style, but only a bit.

The purpose of designer clothes is simple: To make the designer rich. I won't buy anything with a designer's name emblazoned on it.
