What Price Luxury?

Faking Good Breeding has a good post about the psychology of pricing and how consumers have been duped into paying higher and higher prices for clothes and handbags. I've definitely been guilty in the past of thinking that expensive = better. Fortunately age has caused me to put things into perspective a bit more. I still think that you do have to pay for quality with certain garments but price alone doesn't guarantee it. I recall that once a good friend of mine bought a trendy D&G skirt (in her size mind you) that ripped along the seams the first time she tried it on. It might as well have been made of paper. Don't even get me started on the grief the SA put her through to return it.
