Shoes on Sale
Picked up some shoes over the weekend on maximum sale! If you know me by now, you know that I'm a bargain hunter. So when I came across a lonely pair of the Maison Martin Margiela x H&M white sneakers I tried them on and they fit (they said size 5 and I came to realize it was men's sizing AKA they fit my size 6 1/2 feet perfectly!). Now, I still saw the $130 price tag but I still went up to ask if that was the price or if they had been reduced and sweet baby jesus, they were $30!
I pretended not to be so shocked but inside my heart was singing and I took out my credit card asap and bought those bad boys with me! Saving $100 felt so good - as if I had won the lotto, and on a Margiela x H&M piece nonetheless. But where do we stand with designer collections being sold at retailers such as H&M? Is there less value in these items because they are not $15K+? Or do the customers who buy these capsule pieces not understand the designer and their aim? I can sit here and say that I admire people who follow and are die hard for their designers and their mission statement behind their collections. My only question is: why bash the collections sold at H&M (Target, too) when the designers agreed to do this and share a more cost-friendly version of their art? Or is this a matter of who should have access to these things?
Just mind ramble, but my stance goes: I buy what I like and it's better if it's on sale.
Also bought sweet velvet skull loafers from Zara for $20 (from their $50 price tag) - they're perfect.
