Tag: Fashion disaster, am I?

I was tagged for this list on Facebook but I'm completing it here because it makes for a fun post. Despite now owning anything from any of the 'must-have' brands, I don't feel like a fashion disaster. As in, I am a fashion disaster in many ways (another post, another time), but not because I don't do brands. I do own a Dior perfume (J'adore, luuuurve it) but that was a gift from Partner and not something I purchased. Strangely, Partner buys me 'better' stuff -- if you believe that anything branded is better in quality than non-branded stuff -- than I buy for myself. The reasons for this are
(a) I get supremely self-conscious about money I'd spend on a branded item; it's my middle-class background that says any (super)expensive purchase for self is not only unnecessary ("Don't be a show off!"), it's also selfish ("You should save" or "You could spend that on grocery."); and (b) Partner has better taste than me (!) whether its in jewellery or clothes. Unfortunately for poor Partner, it means I drag him for most/every shopping trip. :))

Here goes the tag -- I'd have loved to tag some other bloggers, but don't know who's reading anymore! -- if you haven't done this before and don't mind -- tag-along. Oh yes, I am modifying the list a bit to fit in certain important changes. Like the fact that you might own some stuff but they don't fit anymore!Also since this list seemed aimed more at Indian women, I've also changed/added some stuff to be more world-friendly. :)

How many of these fashion items do you have? A website (*they are not paying me to promote them) has compiled a list of must-have fashion items for men and women .

(1) Copy the list on your blog. (2) Bold those items that you have, italicize the ones you don't fit into anymore!!! (3) If you have an alternate or BETTER brand, write it next to the brands given in red. (4) Tag your friends to see how they're going. Tag me as well so I can see your responses !
