Can someone explain this to me??
This is a trend that just did not exist when I was a teen. (like late 80s)
More and more I'm seeing really overpriced stuff on the net and in retail in general. It seems more mainstream.
Primp (hoodies can be around 200)
Ed Hardy (200 dollar t shirts)
Raw seven (hoodies for 400 bucks??)
Juicy (90+ dollar hoodies)
Stuff of that nature. There's this weird trend where "designers" take casual wear and somehow elevate it to the level of luxury, even though its made out of the same stuff as everything else.
So how dumb are people that they're paying these kinds of prices??
And the same goes for jewelry. Target sells a plastic cameo necklace for 50 bucks. Yes, its a great design, but hell no am I paying 50 bucks for plastic!
I understand that there's the element of "paying for the design" and thats fine. But there's a limit!
