Are those Louboutin’s that left your cell phone bill still due two months later so that you can look sexy at the upcoming party. “Packaging” your image ladies and gentlemen is not the business. If you ain’t got it, let it be! Okay, if you happen to have the money and means to do so, I don’t knock your hustle, Gucci, Fendi, Michael Kors and all those other things I cannot afford unless I consciously save towards it. Please do your thing, but even then, within limits. Humans, please if you owe Tmobile or AT&T go ahead and pay them. I am sure we all have different views on this one, but if you have a car in your driveway that needs fixing, but instead you paid for a trip to Vegas and three new brand name outfits to wear while out there and upon your return you are riding the bus… then your priorities may be out of whack.
If you are at a place in your life where Family-dollar is where you need to purchase home goods, Walmart is where you need to purchase your clothes and maybe wait on a hand me down for a dope pair of shoes, there is NO SHAME. If at a place in your life where you are at Forever21, H&M and Steve Madden status, there is NO SHAME. Do we all have that one thing we indulge in, just a little bit too much? Absolutely! Now, once you have concluded what that one thing is (for some of you it’s bundles, for some it’s clothes, for some it’s Victoria Secret bras) prioritize the spending of these items into your budget. Whoever said one cannot look fly in Aldo boots and a basic tee from Walmart? Basically, it should be within reasonable limits that make sense for where you are in life. You may decide for this $1,250 Yeezy destroyed wool sweater, hey, no partying for a couple of weekends or no eating out. But if it means holding off on rent, helping family out, buying your books for class then my fellow human have a sit and think about it, it looks really silly. Your outfit or Brazilian hair will not conceal the ridiculousness. Most of us have heard the saying: “To many of us buy things they don’t need with money they don’t have to impress people they don’t even like”. I know some reading will say, but I do it for myself… well if you do, please know this is great, that is how it should be. It is important to feel good about one-self, BUT you still need boundaries. Did you know your spirit, your overall being does not care about the shoes on your feet. I think it would rather know you are clean…plus you can’t take these things to the grave with you anyway!
