4 Reasons Designer Clothes Are So Overrated

Don't get me wrong, I love all types of designer things. From bags and accessories to shoes and clothing, they're all beautiful. But for a casual gal like me, these are not necessary things.

4 Reasons Designer Clothes Are So Overrated

There are several luxury designers around the world. These are the ones I see the most on a daily basis. If you're anything like me, you will understand where I'm coming from when looking at all the prices and designs.

Michael Kors

Michael Kors will always be a fad. Of course, I've given in and purchased one before. Why I would ever buy a bag that expensive? That's 300 dollars down the drain. I could've bought a knock-off Michael Kors bag in New York City. Better yet, I could've gone to TJ Maxx and bought an even better one for $10. Sure I would look "rich" walking down the street with an expensive designer bag, but why not get a cheaper one that will serve the same purpose.

Gucci

Recently, designer shoes have been put in the spotlight. There are many songs that depict shoes as a luxury. There is even a song titled "Gucci Flip Flops". Seriously, who needs designer flip flops? I wear flip flops to the beach in the summer, and they are bound to get worn out. There is no reason to buy $210 on those when you can easily go to Old Navy and buy five pairs for five dollars! Yet, you will spot many people wearing their Gucci flip flops on Instagram. (Weird flex, but ok)

Louis Vuitton

Designer belts are trendy and all, but they are way out of an average person's price range. Louis Vuitton belts range anywhere between $300 to over $1,000. That is insane. I am completely fine ordering my belt off amazon or going to my closest Forever21 for $15. A belt is a belt, it was just made to hold your pants up!

Off-White

Trends. Trends. Trends. Everyone loves being trendy. I just discovered the brand Off-White recently when I saw several girls on Instagram posting pictures in their new belts. I thought it was caution tape wrapped around their waste. The average price for one of their belts is a little over $200. Even though this brand seems to be up and coming, I don't see what the hype is all about.

Versace

Another brand that is featured in a popular song is Versace. This high-class brand has always been popular. I was in New York City a few years back when I walked into their store, I felt the employee's eyes following me. It's expensive stuff, they have to keep an eye out, and I don't blame them! On their site, the cheapest women's top I found was $665. I'm not sure about you but I'm pretty sure I don't have that type of money for a t-shirt.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

As a first-year college student, I've been doing a lot of meeting and introducing myself to people, often with the classic format of "name, hometown, major".

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.

If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

6 Ways To Handle The Stress Of Earning Your Degree From Your Childhood Bedroom

Oh so this was the room where I snuck cookies upstairs past my bedtime and stole R-Rated movies to watch when my parents were asleep and now I'm expected to earn my degree in this very same room?

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.

Taylor Swift is famous for her Easter eggs on social media that hint at what is coming next for her. Over the past few days, fans noticed a change in Swift's hair when she was accepting her win as Apple's songwriter of the year that was reminiscent of the "Red" era. Of course, this has caused widespread speculation that Swift has begun to re-record her masters.
