First of all I want to get to the bottom of the title I chose for this outfit post. Well, if you take a closer look at the “get the look” paragraph and spot the brands of the garments and accessories worn here, I probably don’t need to explain about the post title any further, right? I mean these clothes are actually just clothes that are probably even made of the same fabrics like clothes of commercial low priced brands. But only the knowledge about what you wear is worth more than what you earn in a month – maybe even two – is without doubt a very special and luxurious feeling!
At this point I also want to make clear that I am not such a superficial girl as it might seems in the previous lines. I can’t deny I love to dress up in luxurious garments especially high priced designer shoes such as these striped pumps from Dolce&Gabbana (which I found on sale by the way!) but alongside this passion there are much more important things in life – namely all those things you can’t buy for all the money in the world! Family, friends, health… and all the special moments and happiness that comes with it. These are the things that really count and the things I would definitely choose for if I had to choose between them and anything I can buy with an amount of money.
Furthermore I am not one of those rich kids that grew up in prosperity (compared to swiss standards) and received everything I wanted as a gift. No no, I learned to save money for material things I desire since I was a small kid. I remember exactly when I was a little girl, I saved all the little pocket money and the money I got at my birthday or christmas during many many months just to afford the playmobil set I wanted so bad for 100+ bucks. My parents learned me quite early that those things you have to work hard for, are those you are the most proud of and those you appreciate the longest. Now that I am older and earn my own money it is still the same. I still save a lot of money, mostly not even for a special reason – just as collateral and besides I allow myself to buy a high-priced items (mainly shoes obviously) from time to time! Nevertheless I mostly still buy them on sale as I it disturbs me to buy shoes for an amount of money of which I know people in third world countries could probably buy food for more than a year from it
In short: What I actually wanted to explain is that I work hard to afford the luxury I allow myself – but beside I am still aware of the fact that this is not only my own earnings! I was lucky enough to be born in a rich country like Switzerland where the poorest people are financially still better situated than the average population of other countries and I am aware and thankful to that.
