Label Whores

label whore

A label whore is someone who only wears brand name clothes, with the name of the brand usually placed somewhere for all to see. A walking advertisement for a clothing store or brand.
(definition from Urban Dictionary)
So I was watching a reality show the other night and one of the women featured went on and on about how she loves all these different high end brands in a really obnoxious way. It was as if since the items were these big name designers they were then fashionable. NAMES DO NOT EQUATE STYLE! It's unfortunate that some people think that way; money sometimes caters to delusion.

Lordy, I had to get that off of my chest! I just never understood the reasoning.

Girl, I know exactly what you mean. Okay okay I'm guilty for the fact that I love my brand names, but never would I snub out stuff that I could by @ h&m or zara but looked identical to something on the runway of Milan! and I like discreet labeling and not too in your face logo-a-hoe-hoe. . .if you know what I mean. . .hahah
