Label This, Label That

"Never use the word “cheap”. Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-shirt and jeans — it’s up to you."
— Karl Lagerfeld

I like this quote. I like wearing jeans and a t-shirt. You don't have to be dripping in designer labels to feel and look good. Neither do you have to be a glamorous clothes horse every day to make a statement (as much as I love a bit of bling, bling). Sometimes simple is best. That is my opinion, anyway. Agree or disagree?
Of course, saying that, there is room for some designer chewing gum!

I agree though it's odd he should say that as he makes fab but expensive stuff.

I really strongly totally agree! :)
I don't have the money for designer labels (unless they're super cheap!) but I can look hot in a topshop tee and jeans! :)

I couldn't agree more! I like to pair some signature pieces in my closet with really chic and smart pieces that I get off thrift shops. fashion should not have any limits.

I think more than brand and labels - it's all about the fit and the style!

You gotta know what works for you, only then can you truly rock it!
