Try This: Budget Friendly Shearling Look w/ Camel Coat

Right before creating this post I saw this tweet. Thousands of consumers take to social media to call out brands for not living up to their expectations. Not surprised at all but this is exactly what my post is about. Well, not about brands living up to their expectations but more so questioning why is buying a Zara frowned upon and Ralph Lauren not so much? Is it because of the quality? Well look at that tweet up there.  The message is that we as consumers should look closely at our purchases and not assume every single piece from even a well trusted brand is great quality. Of course the name Ralph Lauren is attached to the Luxury side of the market so you’d probably never expect anything to fall apart, not true though.

I guess my point is that this was spot on for my look today. Price doesn’t always equal to superior quality, those days are over. Don’t get me wrong a leather jacket for $100 compared to $1000 probably has a real quality difference. I was lucky to complete this textured look with a sherpa zip up from Old Navy (sold out but heres another option). Who knew.. Check out the rest of my look and chime in?
