    Perhaps you did not carefully read what Payal wrote in the post. She’s not implying that $419 for a pair of shoes is cheap; she’s merely informing readers that the shoes are on sale. Payal even went on to say that she herself would only be admiring the shoes, not buying them. So to claim that she “lamely” listed the price of the shoes is ridiculous on your part.

    Secondly, you don’t necessarily have to be a millionaire to afford designer wear. I’m a college student, so most of my income goes towards buying textbooks and paying rent, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have an interest in designer items. While I can’t justify spending $400 on a pair of shoes, every once in a while, I do buy a well-made (and slightly pricier) item that I know will last for a while.

    You have to remember that this is a fashion blog about Indian celebrities, most of whom wear designer clothing. Many of the people who follow this blog are pretty knowledgeable about fashion, and perhaps do own the clothes and accessories featured here. In addition, both Payal and Priyanka have regularly offered more affordable alternatives for readers who wish to take inspiration from these celebrities, without paying designer prices.

    To imply that all the readers of this site are leading “virtual” lives is quite frankly, pretty condescending.

    Anyways, I love Louboutins, but to me, those sandals are definitely not worth the price tag :)

    I completely agree with you Zara…there is so much I’ve picked up from this blog about fashion…from how to wear it to how to be more conscious of not doing some things…Payal and Priyanka have done a great job with this blog…Also, I do believe that there is no harm in appreciating sth even if you can’t afford…maybe you can’t buy it now but you may be able to at a later point in life…at least ur cultivating gd taste…unlike a lot of pple who have the money, but don’t lack the sense to make educated choices on how to style themselves…
    and yes, the Loubooutins are ok…I prefer their pumps…I would pay $400 for a pair of Louboutin pumps if I save up for it…inspite of the fact that I earn an average salary :-)

    oh boy here comes the finger wagging uncle. Seriously Bob don’t you think it is a bit pointless to lecture us VAPID women who splurge and waste money on louboutins or designer wear….especially on a fashion blog?

    Can you not see we gave up the battle between reason and designer stuff way back when?? We are now on the dark side and we love it…so be happy for us.
    Again its not like we stopped being good human beings….we do continue to dole out soup at soup kitchens but we just do it in Prada.

    Its like how you buy the WII, the windows Xbox, Ninentendo DS, Sony Playstation….those shiny objects cost a quite a bit of money and it continues with the new editions of the game dvds.

    And Louboutins for $400 is a steal brotha…for shizzle!

    Peace brotha…let us all live in harmony, some of us more fashionably.

    @ Zara – you rock gal…!!

    I love Chris Loub but these sandals sure aren’t as yummy so as to guarantee the accompanying price tag!!

    Agreed, i learnt quite a bit about changing it up from this blog… just the other day i paired my plan LBD with a huge red necklace and it was hit!! Thanks guys…

    @Bob – this blog merely comments on what people/celebrities wear… there have been posts about million dollar sherwanis as well as forever 21 $15 worth dresses.

    @ bob – And? They’re not forcing you to buy anything. This is a FASHION blog, and most of the stuff featured on here are high-end stuff…If you can’t afford it, you can’t afford it!

    I know I can’t afford more than half of the stuff featured on here, but I still like to drool over them and look at the celebrities. Another thing, I’ve learned alot of fashion tips from here..so kudos P&P! :)

    Lol @ Divya! Well said :D

    My point of view seems to be changing, or I am trying to understand from different perspectives. The pros of having this website are mentioned above, and I understand it’s a site where we indulge or entertain ourselves, but I think it’s also important to acknowledge or be reminded that we are making more people fashion conscious, thus contributing to the importance of look (vanity). The rapid increasing numbers of designers and varieties they come up with that we lust, clothes stores that we seek to get alternative versions, the desire to update our wardrobe more often than we need to, and the factories that produce fabrics; these are damaging our environment. I know the choice is yours; I just felt obliged to mention.

    @Nepali – When was looks NOT important?? Its not a brand new concept we are trying to roll out in to this world through this blog? Time and again, day through day, we see and learn that looks are important. No matter where we are in our lives, whats wrong in taking care of oneself and looking presentable?
    As a woman i blame “changing up the wardrobe often” syndrome on my harmones. But there are so many ideas i can steal from this blog that lets me reuse my old clothes and make it refreshing.
    And for the pocket – my most expensive clothing item costs $200

    @Divya: Ha ha! Excellent metaphor! My male friends often lament about their girlfriends’ obsession with clothing, but they will drop $500 on techie stuff without batting an eye. I find it sexist that men still seem to think that women are vain creatures whose lives revolve around shopping, when they themselves spend so much money on items that, if anything, are less of a necessity. I mean, after all, you do need clothes. You don’t really need the latest iPhone ;)

    @Nepali: Have you ever realized that the livelihood of many people depend on our so-called “importance of look”? These designers create for a living, and textile factories provide countless jobs, especially for women in developing countries. Factory working conditions are thankfully improving, along with more regulations to reduce carbon output. The environment is in a troubling condition for a variety of reasons, and has been this way since the Industrial Revolution of the 1800s. Making people more fashion conscious is simply not a contributing factor to the state of the global environment. People will always need clothes.

    @charan: Totally agree with you. Vanity is a trait that exists in everyone. I don’t see how one blog can contribute to the detriment of humanity when human civilizations have been vain for hundreds of thousands of years. If anything, ancient civilizations were more extravagant.

    Yes, I agree charan, but I wasn’t referring to how you chose to read, or maybe it’s my lack of proper expression. I was thinking of people whose minds are not tainted by fashion like mine when I was writing those lines. Anyway, I am glad to know the site has all positive effects on you.

  18. Nepali at | | Reply

    zara, yes, people need clothes and jobs, and there is a difference between need and want (desire). I am talking about environment, and pointing this out because fashion may not think it’s affecting now because it doesn’t seem obvious like plastic production. Excessive productions of clothes. There are so many clothes made that store can’t sell and have sale signs quite often, and fabrics being produced in the factory, mainly in China, which are cheaper in price. I don’t know how it is improving there, which is affecting the rest of the world. I said what I felt even if I fail to make sense to you at all, and yeah, I shall rest my case, you can keep going. :D

    Nepali, I completely agree with your last comment. There is a definite lack of concern in the textile industry regarding overproduction, and because synthetic clothes aren’t biodegradable, they sit in landfills forever. This is a problem that tends to be overlooked, because, like you mentioned, there is an overwhelming focus on plastics as the bane of human production. Ideally, these large textile factories need to be decompartmentalized in such a way to prevent overproduction of goods.

    Anyways, I think our conversation, while enjoyable, is probably not suited for this blog! :D

    @Nepali and @Bob – This reminds of the movie Devil wears Prada
    “you think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select out, oh I don’t know, that lumpy blue sweater, for instance, because you’re trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don’t know is that that sweater is not just blue, it’s not turquoise, it’s not lapis, it’s actually cerulean. You’re also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar De La Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves St Laurent, wasn’t it, who showed cerulean military jackets? I think we need a jacket here. And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of 8 different designers. Then it filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic casual corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and so it’s sort of comical how you think that you’ve made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you’re wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room. From a pile of stuff.

    charan, if you had read my other posts in this website from the beginning then you will realise that I am aware of what you mean. I think I am a lot easier on the posts nowadays; maybe I am becoming familiar with the people featured here, and feel sorry, or I am trying to understand from different perspectives, which I know isn’t the right place, but still I just wanted to mention so they stay at the back of our heads. I understand your point of view and that wasn’t what I referred to, but anyway, I now have officially rested this case. I lost. :)

  22. charan at | | Reply

    @Nepali – Its just a discussion. No one is winning or losing. I love these conversations :)
    I wish i could understand your perspective in a better way.
