shoes- yes on sneakers, pero for others like espadrilles and flats- no. as long as they're comfortable to wear.

bags- sometimes but never high end  ;D (hindi ko afford), I like Charles and Keith and H&M lang and for leather bags I have it custom made sa neighbor namin (who is really good) ako lang bumibili mismo ng leather  :D

make-up- a big YES  ;D ;D ;D

clothes- no, I'll wear any brand basta kasya sa akin 8)

Branded dahil sa quality para sa:
-appliances sa bahay.
-ibang gamit pa sa bahay like cabinet etc.
-ibang gamit ni baby ex. Feeding bottles, creams, lotions, baby soap nag try ako ng lotion na mura or drugstore brand namula skin at nagkarashes/dry ang skin ng anak ko kaya balik cetaphil, mustela and aveeno ako.

Lately parang I wanna say yes na to all; clothes, shoes, bags, make up, laki din kasi talaga ng difference sa quality, tho ang issue is kung afford ko haha!

real talk lang...

i think we all are (brand-conscious)  ;D .  we seem to judge each other by the  clothes, purse, shoes,  jewelry, accessories we wear, hahahahaha.  i know it's bad but we all do it anyway.   it's just sad that we are reduced to this,  where our value as a person equates to the price tag of our things. 
and yet, there's also nothing wrong naman for having nice stuff if that's what gives us joy.  oh such conflicting thoughts we have.
and i am guilty of owning designer label items myself, so sue me  ;) .


(and this post is NOT for those who don't judge, who don't like  designer labels,  so don't reply with a rebuttal if you are not as superficial as some of us,  hahahahahaha, GV lang)

^Meron din naman kasing reverse discrimination. Those who look down on people who prefers branded products. My former friend is like that, judgmental of the people who likes to dress nice and likes taking care of themselves or buy stuff that she can't afford...LOL! Sabi ko, eh hindi lahat ng tao keri ang lumabas ng parang laging bagong gising or bitin ang pantalon. Sa kanya sabi ko pwede pero yung iba hindi. Hindi naman yata sa kanya inuutang ang pangbili.

When it comes to electronics, mas prefer ko talaga ang medyo high end. I will save for it rather than settle for something else.

Guilty of being branded. I love designer fashion although my love for it has a caveat -- i tend to favor things that are muted or don't say the brand/designer name...although of course a lot of luxury goods have IT status or are so iconic, that even without a brand/logo on it, you know it's designer.

I go to my closet and admire my things sometimes.. i would take my bags out of their boxes just to smell and feel the leather, or i'll rub my face on my silks and cashmere scarves. This makes me somewhat feel better (a little boost) when i'm having a bad day. I'm always on ThePurseForum just to chat with other luxe-aholics about our latest addictions, what's coming soon and the waiting game for the items we want.

I won't be sorry for my guilty pleasure. I don't judge others for their choices and I don't think anyone has a right to judge my choices either. Good vibes only, as pointed out above!

If it's not for you, then it's not. Live and let live =)

May isang bag lang talaga na pangarap ko yung Chanel Classic Flap. Kaso di ko pa kayang sikmuraing bilhin. Lol. Dami pang mas important. Siguro pag nabili na namin lahat ng essentials like bahay and kotse, I would buy, for now I veer away from looking at it. Actually kaya naman, yun lang ayaw ko namang mag-give in sa temptation dahil dami pang mas importante than a bag that costs almost like pwede nang pambubong ng bahay namin or pangdown ng condo. Sa sapatos, di rin ako mahilig sa designer pero yung mga midrange like Nike mga ganun. Damit I buy nga sa Ukay ukay or even tiange. Pansin ko lang, pagdating sa toddler ko, I would prefer to buy her clothes sa may Zara, Old Navy, Carters or the likes, though meron naman siyang mangilan ilang clothes na di gaano kamahal. Pero pagdating sa shoes niya, laging branded. Yung husband ko ang high end ang stuff. Sobrang mahal nga gamit niya. I don?t mind naman, pera naman niya ginagadtos niya and in fact siya pa nagpipilit na bilhan ako ng LV or Chanel. Ako lang ang may ayaw. Perfumes naming dalawa are all designers. Our gadgets- Apple lahat. Ayaw niya ng ibang brand.

I do this with my leather jackets. It never fails to make me feel better!

bags - hanggang coach, [textspeak!] and MK lang ang budget ko, i would love to experience buying from lv, givenchy and gucci, yes experience number 1 reason. i dont buy bags na na faux leather lang kasi mas sayang pera.
shoes - cheap ones, but I also like Adidas since minsan ko lang naman gamitin so it will last, pero office shoes mumurahin lang gusto ko kasi lagi nagpapalit
skincare/makeup - midrange lang but i usualy buy kung saan mura, ex korean brands syempre sa korea ako nabili or nagpapabli
gadgets/appliance - branded coz i usually buy unless masira so i need something that im sure i will get my money's worth, yung pangmatagalan
clothes - cheap ones kasi there are a lot of cheap options na same lang din [textspeak!], nasa pagdadala lang naman lagi yun

Bags - I don't buy the high end ones. Okay na ko sa mid-range lang (Kate Spade, Coach, MK). Though depende pa din sa price. I won't buy bags which are higher than 7k. Even sa Wallet, i have Kate Spade and MK, pero less than 4k lang.

Clothes - I prefer yung mga may brand because of the quality. Kitang kita mo kase yung quality ng fabric. And pansin ko, yun mga blouse/dress na binebenta sa tiangge, kung hindi mainit yung tela, manipis naman. I invest on clothes kase yun ang unang makikita ng tao.

Bra - Wacoal loyalist here! Matibay talaga and it will last for years

Shoes - kung ballet flats lang, kahit Marikina shoes lang okay na sakin. Sa office ko lang naman sinusuot. I spend on sneakers and rubber shoes because i am commuting at kailangan comfy and durable ang shoes.

try ko nga yang wacoal, tagal ko na rin kasi naghahanap ng ok na bra, latest i've tried is uniqlo, ok sana kaso after 2-3 months ganun din nawawala rin agad yung shape niya.

Wacoal din ako for years now. Aside from the high quality, great fit din kasi sa akin.

Tuwing bibili ako, laging nagcocomment yung mga bagger/cashier na, ang mahal talaga ng wacoal! Parang gusto ko i-explain minsan sa kanila why I buy wacoal, pero baka mahabang usapan pa yun, so ngiti na lang ako, haha.

^^sa landmark ako usually bumibili. I suggest you to ask the saleslady to take your measurements first. Tapos sila na din magsasabi sayo kung anung design available yung size mo. I always have them take my measurements everytime i buy.

Bags- Hand-me-downs ng sisters-in-law ko or may inireregalo (mostly sila rin). First time ko makaranas ng Coach at Fossil na bag dahil sa kanila. Ginawa ko lang school bag na madungis nung college-- gulat ako medyo pricey rin pala hehe.

Wallets- Naadik ako sa Cath Kidston dahil sa floral floral na style  ;D 

Clothing- Same as above, buti ka-size ko na both ng SIL ko kaso mostly office wear. WAHM ako so di ko kelangan, kaya parang over the top pag lumalabas ako casually. Thankful syempre kasi di ko na kailangang bumili.

My baby girl's clothing- Luckily for me may mga kumare akong maraming branded wear na outgrown ng inaanak ko  <3 pero may habit rin akong mamili ng US brands (Carter's, Old Navy, GAP) pag may SIL na pupunta sa US. Again, thankful sa inlaws lol.

Shoes- Unfortunately, hindi ko ka-size ang mga SIL! In between nila ako huhu. Kaya ang doll shoes ko SM Dept Store brands (but hey, comfy!) Ang pangharibas Skechers. Since 2014 pa lol buhay pa rin.

Makeup- Ito ang isa sa ginagastusan ko talaga. Di pwedeng hindi MAC kasi dun lang ako nahiyang ;) sayang di ok sakin ang Korean skincare :(

Bras- Breastfeeding pa rin so I can't buy yung mga nice branded underwired bras (but I wanttt). Pinakamahal ko na siguro yung Medela bustier para pag nagpa-pump ako ng milk. Other than that, mga murang bandeau from Bench lang or So-En :D

Gadgets- I have to admit, Apple fantard ako. iPhone, iPad, Macbook and iMac meron ako. I bought a spare phone na Samsung mid-lvl. Pang Pokemon Go tracker ko dati  :P. Di nga lang ako bumili ng iPX (I usually go for the nxt release para mas stable). Wait ako sa WWDC :P sa Japan ako bumibili every 2 yrs or so para cheaper (and may regional warranty).

I love bags, dresses, shirts and watches.  I invest on branded bags like YSL, hermes, gucci kasi i know quality is good.  I find that Hermes and salvatorre shirts look nice too kahit for work.  Watches of course dahil sa quality.
