It’s OK to wear brand names and designer labels because they are tools of the trade, but you have to go about it in a smart fashion. Don’t use your money on expensive materialistic things. If a guy wants to spend his money on those items for you then that’s perfect, but still rules apply. If he uses his credit card (plastic) to purchase it, wisely choose something that you really like because you are allowed to keep it. However, if he uses cash (paper) then find the most expensive items in the store because the wise thing to do is to return those items. It’s funny when guys ask me if I want to try on the items that they are about to purchase for me, my answer is usually “No, I already know my size.” I don’t waste my time trying on clothes because I know that I’m going to return it, to get the cash and deposit it in my investment account. I encourage you to do the same, just make sure to get the receipt. As soon as you get the cash back invest it in mutual funds or bonds. At the end of the day purses and shoes may make you feel good temporarily but you’ll feel even better knowing that your money is growing and soon your future will be secured.
