I have written articles that are similar to this one and actually, I have come up with more tips for you, the luxury brand consumer. These steps will help you purchase items that are way out of our price range, in a clever manner. Some of the steps will actually help you out in the real world. Some of them will bring some realisations over you. All in all, I feel that you will benefit from going through this guide.
I know that it is hard to resist the urge to purchase a high-fashion product as soon as it is launched. One of the ways that you can save a lot of money is that if you wait for your “must have” pieces to go on sale. And by ‘sale’ I mean ‘discount’. I know that it is rare that a classic piece from a designer is discounted, if you wait for some time, you will actually find a lot of seasonal items with a great vibe going on discount, at least annually. You will be able to find these designer items in malls. If you are on the posher side of the city, you will find high fashion brands that have retail stores. You will be able to get some discounts from these places. I have also seen high fashion products go on discount, on websites. I know that it is hard to trust the website, that is why you should purchase from trusted ones. If you don’t like it, you can just return it for a full refund.
Fashion keeps evolving; fashion keeps changing. It would be best if you did not get on the bandwagon every single time a fashion or a trend changes. You should be a trendsetter. I suggest you stay away from fast-changing trends, because these are the trends that will render you broke if you try and keep up with it. If you can keep up with changing trends with brands like H&M and Zara, I feel that it is okay because they are affordable brands. If brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Chanel and Dior change the trends all the time, it can be impossible to keep up with it.
You should know that it is not a competition. Just because a friend of yours purchased a pair of shoes worth thousands of dollars, does not mean you have to as well. You need to make purchases based on your financial situation and your preferences. Plunging yourself into debt is certainly moronic if you are just trying to flex on some people whose opinions you should not even care about. Real friends are supposed to make each other feel better, not be in competition with one another.
It is an option to rent designer shoes, as long as you can take care of it.
