99 % of the people around you won't give a crap if you wear a rolex with a 5 dollar tee. They won't notice. Same with fragrances, whether an expensive niche or cheap designer. If you have to give too much of a thought for these questions you should work on your self confidence. Makes life much easier.
Think of it this way: if they've noticed it and are curious enough to ask about it, they are probably already assuming it's some sort of designer clothing. And if there's already a good chance that they're assuming it's designer, why be bothered to admit it?So I do feel a bit embarrassed if someone asks me what I'm wearing and I don't want to admit it's a designer.
Aah, you must have bought the Chanel. I like that one. I'll call it "Baby Antaeus"!
I just love all the comments here. The honesty is refreshing.
I appreciate the reality fashion show, and want to see more and smell more. Please! Be part of the coolness for those of us in the audience. Wear your great fashions, cheap or expensive! Look awesome! Smell awesome! 🌹
Anybody who is worried that people are judging you, please assume positively, for those of us who are! 🤩
When you look cool or smell great, or even better, both, it makes my life better! Please! Interrupt the dreariness of the parking garage and 5000 more lines of code. Your amazing perfume, your fancy ride, and your hair just perfect - that is what I'll remember. Along with your opening the door for me! 😇
Some of my best memories are from Paris, because everyday French people, including visitors and immigrants from the Francophone countries, get the idea that they can be part of the beauty of the world with so little effort or money. It's an attitude.
I may not be the one to pull it off, but if I can spread it by admitting my appreciation, maybe others who can, will do. Make my day!
This. I've been asked what I was wearing and I replied "Orto Parisi Cuoium" and "Zoologist Hummingbird" and nobody knows the brands or how much (or little) they cost. I carry Coach handbags and if you know them, they have a little tag on a chain with the name embossed, but only other Coach fans ever comment on them. I think most people are only interested in their own interests. If I ask someone what kind of car they drive and they say "Ferrari" all I really know is that it's expensive, but whether it costs 100K or 500k I don't know and don't care.The only saving grace is that the average person doesn't really know a lot of brands that are common to us
There are a few people uncomfortable sharing that they're wearing a cheap fragrance. Or if they're wearing a clone, they might try to say they're wearing the original.
For me, it's kind of the opposite. I don't really enjoy telling people that I'm wearing an expensive fragrance. I may just be wearing a sample or decant. Or a tester of a Creed I got for $90 several years ago. But if I say I'm wearing a niche frag, people may either get the impression I'm upper class or that I'm trying to floss.
For similar reasons I mentioned in the "Why I prefer unbranded clothes" topic on the mens fashion forum of this site. I prefer to be understated, and not let designer clothing be the main focus of my aesthetic. It's probably a similar reason why I wouldn't wear a Rolex or a pair of Yeezys even if I got them for free.
Granted this is a really trivial topic, and I'm rarely asked what I'm wearing anyway.
