Name brand or not-so-much?

Do you only purchase name brand handbags and clothes, etc. (such as Coach or Miss Me jeans)? What is your reasoning weather you do or you don't?

  • I just buy what I like, and sometimes that's name brand stuff and sometimes it's not. I hardly spend anything on clothes anymore though. I used to have so many clothes I could go over a month without wearing the same outfit twice, and now I only buy clothes when I really need something new or if we have an event to go to and I'm more about comfort now since I play with a toddler most of the day--hopefully stylish comfort more often than not though. ;-) I rarely go out in 'comfy' clothes unless we go to the rec center to work out or something. So, anyway I care more about what I think of the style (if it suits me) and how well it fits than where I bought it or what the label says, but I do buy some major brand names sometimes.

  • Not so much. I don't care about the names on the items, I buy what I like and thankfully that's not based on someone's name.

  • Not so much. I would rather that money go toward a college fund, debt, or charity. The label is not an even exchange for me.

  • If I find it in a second hand store maybe. Otherwise, not so much.

  • No name brands for me. I'd rather have 3 pairs of jeans than one.

  • I buy my clothes at Target when they are on clearance. I don't carry a purse and would never spend more than like $20 on one if I did.
