Say if someone is carrying an LV, and wearing Banana Republic. Do you think it looks out of whack somehow? I own a couple of serious bags (LV mainly) and since finding TPF have been looking to expand my collection. Here's the thing though: I can't afford to wear that kind of clothing. I can do a couple bags a year, but I don't buy all my clothes at Saks. I buy them at BR, J. Crew, Ann Taylor, Club Monaco. Sure there is some mid-level stuff in there like BCBG and Theory and Laundry, and I buy high-end (COH, R&R) jeans and most of my shoes are at least mid-range (Stuart Weitzman, Michael Kors, Charles David etc) but basically I am a mass market shopper when it comes to clothing. So does this mean I should stick down in the mid range with bags as well? Do you think it looks silly to see a Balenciaga or Fendi on the arm of someone wearing quality, but not couture, clothing? Serious opinions appreciated.
