LV, Chanel, and Gucci bags CAN look good on certain women, but it is very, very rare when it happens. Those bags look exceptionally ugly when it doesn't suit the woman from inside out, not mentioning that they are actually not that good quality compare to their price, and compared to what is available is the market.
Taste and class cannot be pretended nor elevated with expensive things; however, taste and class can easily be hidden too with clothes. I have also seen friends who truly have taste and class hide themselves with "neutral clothes" because they are subconsciously afraid of falling in love, or they are afraid of their own femininity or masculinity. I myself have gone through a long period of hiding myself because I didn't know how to handle the feeling of attraction.
I think to be able to know what suits yourself and what good quality means is a valuable tool to collectively stop the sickening consumerism. Not being fooled by big brands which dropped their quality because of their greed in making more money, is the way to save money and energy to support things which suit you and therefore benefit you.
When one wears something which speaks the essence of the very person, he or she becomes an artwork and stands out on the street without doing anything. That is the magic of wearing.
