I always wonder why most customers buy so much stuff with low cost even if they have money. I think that buying things fast at low cost is a great situation. When you are young and able to find out your style then, I understand the purpose of buying low-priced attires. But why this express fashion is so popular even with the grown-up customer?
Most people really do not care about the worth and how long it will last, because you can buy another cheapproduct next year. People these days aren’t easily fulfilled. When they buy something…two months later they want another new model. So buying stuffs cheap makes it easier for people to say: ” I can just buy a new one because it was only $….!
Just because we have many options, it doesn’t mean we have to take them all. We live in the age where you can buy whatever thing at any price. That’s why this is all baffling! We need to know why that $60 coat is $60. You, as a customer should examine this or you can buy and see what happens. Whatever you do, look back and see if you could have done enhanced. People use shopping as a pass through filter, and retailers take benefit of that.
So how do we educated fashion consumers? Who educates fashion consumers? Definitely not companies who depend on revenue and more and more sales. What/who/how then? The greater part of people seems not to even worry about the environment and the costs to over-production and over-consumption. So why would they care about durability of a coat if they don’t care about the very atmosphere they breathe?
It is indeed a social problem. Look at how the world is today. Everything has to go quick; no one wants to wait for something. And in the fashion world, trends change often. There is a certain stress to always look good and to always be the latest trends. Brands provide that. They know that always people will buy their “cheaper” stuffs because it’s trendy.

Ladies, when it comes to stylish, sexy footwear for summer, you’ve got a lot of choices. And as the great and glam Carrie Bradshaw of ‘Sex and the City’ once said, “We’re talking about a woman’s right to shoes.”
There’s no excuse to be stuck wearing yesterday’s clunky disasters. It’s time to clean out the closet and go shopping. And if you think you’re boxed in with only selections of boring flats and wedges, think again.
Footwear for summer 2012 is sizzling hot. Look for shoe/sandal trends that pop in bright colors, like vivid yellows and oranges, hot pink, electric blue, etc. Nine West is offering up the ‘Krysten’ in their own yummy shades of Turquoise or Flamingo on a criss-cross platform with buckle closure, as featured in OK! magazine.
Or slip into a pair of sky high platforms if you dare. Jessica Simpson has never met a platform sole she didn’t like, and this season she’s designed a bunch of them, including the ‘Barbara,’ a sexy platform cage sandal that features a strappy stiletto design.
The ‘Cordelia’ Espadrille Wedge by Bandolino is adorably suede with a layered flower detail at the toe, braided espadrille heel, and a slingback strap. A smart choice that spells comfort and style, 24/7.
Maybe shining shoes are more your style. Gold or silver are classics that are on trend for summer 2012. It’s metallic mania, if you will. ‘Ariel’ from BCBGeneration is the perfect pump for a glamorous night out on the town. It’s a peep toe pump in a shiny gold, metallic leather upper.
Pastel-colored footwear is also very appealing for the summer. Try on any style in aqua, light yellow, or pale green. Nude is extra hot at the moment, too. Just look at the Royals’ Kate Middleton in nude shoes again and again. Coach has a sophisticated pair in wheat, called the ‘Sue Heel.’ It features a rounded toe in nude leather with a straight, stacked heel.
Coach also offers up the ‘Gwynn Wedge,’with a nautical blue striped canvas and leather strap on a 4 1/2″ wedge heel. Stripes are the hottest accessory going at the moment, and these classic sandals have a modern edge that looks so right this summer.
If you’ve been wishing for the braided sandal to return, then summer 2012 is your time. Braiding on footwear is quite elegant, especially when the details are so intricate. You could never go wrong selecting the ‘Tahira Black Braid’ by Naturalizer. This is a lovely casual sandal thong in a 1 1/4″ heel. The braiding in black, twists and loops, and fastens with a heel sling strap and buckle.
Summer footwear doesn’t have to be dull or look typical. Look around, and you will see runway trends that maybe you thought you could never wear, like sexy transparent shoes, laced up sandals, metallic toes, sandals loaded with buckles, rivets, and the return of always chic, pointed toe shoes.
Remember: Fashion doesn’t end at the hem of your dress or pants. Your covered feet complete the look. And when your summer footwear is right on trend, so are you.
