Hi everyone,

I've just joined the Warrior Forum today so first off, thanks for having me!! I hope to join more discussions!!!

I'm Penny, an easy-going gal from OZ On Facebook one day, I chanced upon this shopping site with independent designers and thought hey, they look pretty good. (links removed by moderator). So that night itself, I was out with some friends.. drank some wine.... had a chat with my mate and she mentioned that she wouldn't buy a dress, or any fashion item online unless it's branded and familiar to her. I thought it was silly because I've never really been the kind of person into brands cause as long as the material's good, it lasting and it's pretty, I'M SOLD. I don't know if I should be ashamed for wanting "unknown" brands?

Which brings me to my question... When shopping online, would you go for independent fashion designers or familiar reputable fashion brands and why?

I'd really like to know what you think. I'll be happy to listen to any opinions!

Thanks heaps,
Penny

    Hi Penny,

    Good Day from the Land of the Kiwis, to your East

    I have a boxcar hobo fashion sense and shop at Walmart, taking 1 step up from burlap sacks, not owning pants. So independent aka unknown fashion brand all the day.

    I just buy ironic t-shirts online or secure via markets in remote corners of the world, so def not a big box guy.

    I keep it simple. Cheap solid color shirts and cheap jeans. Brands do not mean anything to me. And if someone is going to look down on me for purchasing my clothing from Walmart or thrift stores, then they don't need to be in my life. I don't care what you wear or what car you drive. If you are a nice, humble, and trustworthy person, it is all that matters to me.

    Hi Pennymc. Welcome to The Forum. As a "Brand" idea what about ...

    True, black T-shirts and jeans is my preferred choice, or l tend to adopt Einsteins approach to clothing, and wear the same choice over and over.
