I'm a bit skater punk (had pink hair for a while), a bit 80's (studio 54 era bit) and a bit preppy couture. I love designer clothes, some vintage stuff and also skate labels. Eclectic eh?

I guess you'd call me a really preppy girl...but I'm not, really. Clotheswise I guess I am, but not in attitude.

I have to say that I agree with Jules. I'm very ecletic. I love rainbow stuff, like Meg, and I guess sometimes I go a little "goth". Black is the main colour in my closet. I swear by tank tops! I love them, plus it's hot here in TX.

I also love hats. I have a great collection of hats. I think I mostly am known for my make up. I always have tannish-gold lids and black eyeliner.

I used to dress like a boy with baggy jeans etc etc etc and then I lost weight (LOTS of weight) went down about 5 trouser sizes, went from a 12 DD to a 10 C (thats a bit depressing, I miss my boobs :( ) and became hippy-fied lol.
In winter I wear multiple skirts over pants and a scarf thats longer than me. I spike my hair up at the back, but it seems everyone's doing that thses days so I'm a-thinking I'll get it ALL cut off.
My gf wants to dye it blonde...seems a bit drastic...

But I shop at Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch, American Eagle, Forevor 21 (less often though), Aeropostale, Old Navy...blah blah blah... And while in Europe I discovered Zara, which we need to get here. :) Sometimes those stores make it hard though, because I don't wear clothes with brand names on them.

Pac Sun had some good clothes last year's summer seasons, but now their clothes are shit because so are the fashions this year. I'm really disappointed with this year's fashions, with the low-riders showing your gstring and the white spaghetti straps with the half shirt covering it. Boring.

its not about the extra money designer clothes cost that makes me not wear them all the time its the fact i want to keep them nice, regular high street shops make some nice clothes too and i just buy what i like the look of, my real bad weakness though is shoes-far more than any other item of clothing.

though i'd have to say i have a secret obsession with pumas. okay not so secret.

i just got a pair of trionfo low pumas, which is unusual for me because usually i don't get pumas that i have to tie (ie slip-ins or backless)... but they were black pig suede (comfortable!), had the speed cat logo on the inner side, and the seal to the deal: the ferrari badge on the outer side. *ughhh* talk about amazing shoes.

I'm a big American Eagle/Hollister/Gap shopper for clothes. In the winter I also LOOOVE Ralph Lauren and Lacoste sweaters. As for shoes, I have a sick obsession, and I usually end up going to Nordstroms or Saks or whatnot and buying expensive designer brands (I just bought a pair of Coach sneakers...they're way adorable).

And as for like...non "chain" stores, Anthropologie is freaking amazing.

Fashion maybe, but style is universal.

And on the topic of designer clothes, if I was rich, I would probably wear almost entirely designer for the following reasons:

1. Why not.
2. Comfort - Designer clothes (unless they're overly pretentious) almost always fit better and are more comfortable. ESPECIALLY shoes. While not designer, I try and buy the most expensive trainers I can afford, as otherwise I get excruitiating shin splints.

The trainers designed for serious athletic use have a very short lifetime, much like Formula One car parts. They are extremely good for a short period of time, before they fall apart.

Most high cost cross trainers are pretty solid in my experience.

Of course it also depends on the road surface that you're running on. The roads near my house are not good for shoes. I tried wearing martial arts shoes for running when I left my trainers at university, and ended up getting point bruises along the bottom of my feet.

1. Why not.

Equally anyone who wears ONLY designer clothes sucks worse because they're an attention whore with not a trace of individuality. Who wants us all to look the same?

This is why I choose to wear a lot of concert T-shirts. For me it serves so many purposes. Like I got a DB10 T-shirt at the testimonial last night, because I was there. I love it, not because it looks excellent or because it feels excellent but because I WAS THERE. And wearing it reminds me of that and gives me that buzz again. Same with concert T-shirts, they remind you of an experience.

The only people apart from me who would be wearing these sorts of T-shirts are a) people who went to the concert too or b) people who bought it from ebay or something (that's the saddest thing anyone can do. It's worthless unless you were there). Even altogether that's a slightly narrower band than everyone, which is the class of people likely to be wearing designer clothes. So I get around the "looking like everyone else" and "no individuality" points.

It's also expressing my personality through my music tastes and hobbies. I think clothes, like your hairstyle, should reflect YOU, as a person, and what you're about. Designer clothes only reflect that you have money, which isn't really a defining characteristic. We've lost the art of expressing ourselves.

2. Comfort - Designer clothes (unless they're overly pretentious) almost always fit better and are more comfortable.

Not true. I have lots of non-designer clothes that fit better and are far more comfortable than when I tried on designer options. I always check out designer options when I shop and I'm always disappointed. Sizing-wise they're designed as if everyone has the same basic body shape, which is a myth.

However assuming you can get past the fit issue, I'll grant you that often the materials used are better (well they should be!) and therefore feel better. And there's the pleasure you get out of wearing snazzy clothes that makes you relaxed and more comfortable anyway.

To me, however, my individuality and expressing myself is most important.

Hairstyles are quite dependent on how much you have to spend on them. The more money you spend, and the more often, the better it generally looks. Hair cut by a decent stylist looks SO much better than a cheap 5 quid chop. Ask any girl.

Oh I wouldn't disagree with that, but the fact is you have an input into what they do to your hair, regardless. I've got no problem with spending money on things, that's not my gripe with designer clothes. Designer CUSTOM-made clothes are perfectly fine as they're one of a kind. But unless you've got six figures to blow on your wardrobe, you're not going to be able to afford that.

For the record I cut my own hair sometimes. Previously I've wanted it cut roughly and to be fair, even if you ask a stylist to do your hair a certain way, they're still a professional and won't give you what would conventionally be thought of as a "bad" haircut. Except I wanted that. So I did it myself! :p Also if I want to shave it there's no point paying someone to clip it as I have hair clippers and can do that myself. That was my last haircut, the nice and easy "all off". I'm now growing it back out, but it's probably due a trim soon as it's getting into "styling" length.

I can't help the fact that you're odd shaped. God did you a disservice there.

I'm aware of that. I wasn't blaming you, pointing out the fallacy in your argument. Some clothes makers accept that some people are odd-shaped.

I like to wear whatever I feel like wearing. I'm not much to follow the trends because sometimes they go towards something that looks ugly. I like wearing jeans quite often. But then there are times that I like to wear a skirt. The skirts usually look 50s. I love the 50s. And Audrey Hepburn. And then sometimes after watching a movie I like, I'll improvise and add a touch of my favourite character to an outfit or something.

As for designer vs ... non-designer. It all depends on whether or not it's good quality. I prefer to buy something slightly more expensive that looks good on me and will last long as opposed to something from some cheap store that will tear after wearing it twice.

Overall I find fashion quite fun. I used to be not much into it at all. And so I looked quite bad all the time. But now I like to always look presentable. Even if it's just a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.

Female nakedness, yes Cliff, but generally women I speak to have suggested male total nudity isn't really that attractive to them. Unless a woman's got droopy meat curtains, female genitals are less conspicuous, whereas a man walking around in the nude will be "flapping" about a lot.

Generally I've heard that a man in clothes, or half-naked, is preferable to in the buff.

I dont really have a style. I don't really like to classify myself as any style, bcuz i dont dress JUST to me in a style, i just dress in what i feel comfortable in. I'm a tom-Boy so i'm not all that girly.

the only stores I shop at are: Hot Topic and Aeropostal. Two very opposite stores, yeah i know its kind of odd.

Aeropostal's the only store i like thta sells "presentable" clothes. They have good deals on their sales, and their clothes aren't overly made with their designs or too flashy... and its the only store i could shop at for school clothes. $)


Hot Topic (imo) is going toooooo Emo with their clothes these days. It's kind of pissing me off. I'll only buy tank tops from them these days.
