I see a lot of fashion people in Indonesia, my current country, who are so attached to something called 'brand'. I know, we often feel proud and satisfied when we wear something branded, like Zara, Mango, Topshop, Forever 21, etc. Well, me too. But, do you know? In foreign countries, people usually use those brands as their daily clothes. So, if you sometimes feel down because you can't afford to buy those things, don't be sad! Sometimes, local brands and products are much better. :)
I found this good quote in a local fashion magazine:
"You don't have to be rich to be happy, just like you don't have to be branded to be stylish."
