Wrong again.

There is a 10 to 20 year gap in age we are talking about. None of these gold kids would have seen me in school. Second, I think your view of what the hippie generation was and what they became are very scewed.

yeah, my gf grew up around san deigo and LA, she has to have the latest $400 coach purse... why when a walmart one serves the same purpose? i'm slowing getting her to realize that is just money wasted for a name brand

its nice to have good things once in a while. if shes shopping and going out every week then she would fall under the gold collar category.

i might buy or splurge on one big thing a month but am usually in jeans and old navy shirts. in fact, most of my closet is from old navy. cant beat the 2 for $20 t-shirts. same manufacturer ar abercrombie and gap i think.

i don't have anything where i had to have the "name" brand. i bought it becuase it served a purpose or was practical. a target purse will hold "girl items" as well as a LV or coach purse will, and that leaves her anywhere from $300 - $1200 do cook me dinner with

i would say it is more practical than a difference for a purse of 900% with all of the same features, maybe even more for the cheaper one...

if i could get a bell helmet for $30 that had the same protection, ventilation, and weight as a shoei rf1000 that was $500, i'd go for the $30 helmet
