I like designer things. I want to surround myself with beautiful and practical items which make life easier and more comfortable. I prefer organic food over processed. I better would use less of things, but I would choose these which bring pleasure and wellness.
I am not so rich that I could buy cheap things. I have the purse from Marino Orlando. I bought it ten years ago. This handbag looks excellent and will serve me fifty years more or till the time when I will be bored with it.
What Is the Point?
It does not matter how money do you have. It matters how wisely you earn and how carefully you spend.
One great thing will serve you many years. What is most important, it is going look right all the time. If you take good care of your items, they will serve and create the proper impression about you.
Not everybody reached the spiritual level where individuals do not care what do they wear or where do they live. David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D. wrote in one of his books that there are levels of people’s understanding and ability to comprehend environment. He is the great spiritual teacher. I know that children do not care so much about clothes and stuff. They stream for exciting and new things.
Sometimes I wonder if adults would have exciting jobs or activities, would they go endlessly shopping or spend countless hours sitting and playing video games.
Some people do not care how do they look. I agree with the saying that is most important what is inside not outside. Yes, it is true, but the first impression is significant too.
Designer things, most of them, are pieces of art. They are made from quality material, have the great balance between comfort and beautiful view.
Katsuzo Nishi, the famous Nishi Health system creator, told that it is better to have expensive utensils and dishes and eat pure food. He thought that rich looking table would attract the prosperity to the house.
Overall, in the Eastern world, the art of choosing right design, directions how to locate furniture, where to keep the money, how to protect the entrance to the house helped and helps now to create balanced and fulfilling lives. This art name is feng shui. It has thousands of years of tradition which passes from generation to generation.
You Are Not a Tree
When I walk in the forest or the park, I see harmony, balance, and taste at creations of Nature. Trees, bushes, herbs or flowers always look great, especially if they are healthy. Nature knows how to balance colors and shapes.
I can not tell that all human beings know how to look decently. There are people who turn heads when they pass. I feel lucky and happy when I see them.
I agree that tastes are different. Sometimes, creations of designers can be fun to see as the object which is suitable for the museum, not for wearing it. There are plenty of examples where models are the size of zero or less. There is no way to fit real man or woman into these clothes.
We all can choose what to wear, especially if we live in a free society. There is no pressure what you need to fit into a frame. Of course, if you create danger, it is better to rethink your position.
Anyway, if somebody wants to look good and save money in a long way, designer things are the best option. You do not need to stuck piles of shoes and dresses. It is enough to have a few and wear them continually mixing with different details.
How Big is your Wallet?
You do not need pile up goodies from the Internet or department stories.
Think what is most important for you? Do you need the sturdy backpack or leather shoes, which would last for you at least ten years? Of course, if you have one pair of shoes, it can be complicated. Few pairs of shoes can serve many years ahead, especially if you would take care of them.
Some people can afford to buy Canadian Goose jackets; some people can be content with Calvin Klein or Michael Cors jackets.
Fortunately, there are department stores or websites, where you can find designer items at the meager price. You do not need to brag about from where it came. All clothes, accessories or shoes are brand new. If you do not mind to have designer things from previous collections, you can save at least 70 percent and more.
If you have gadgets from famous and trustworthy brands, such as Apple or Samsung, they will serve longer compare with other items, which break down fast enough. They do not appeal from the visual point too.
It Is Your Choice
Nobody will condemn you if you do not dress well and you do not know who Bruno Magli is. I know many professors who do not care how do they look. They are genuinely in their books searching for answers.
Old saying: people meet you looking at your clothes, and they make conclusions about you after your speech. However, I guess plenty of scientists have friends or wives which guide them through unnecessary choices( as they think) of picking right clothes or other things.
However, I think that these people who prefer quality over quantity must choose designer items. Designer products last longer, look better and help lighten up self-esteem.
It is your choice what to do with your appearance. The society has norms, but always rebels will do some things differently. It is okay because the progress happens mostly in this way. Some people like to collect expensive items, some of them use it as the investment for the future.
Individuals who like expensive things feel the pleasure and see the real profit from having few but functional items. You can save money in the long run because costly items last longer and look better compared with fake or made using questionable fabrics or materials.
What do you think about usage of expensive things? Is it a waste of time and money or the opposite way?
