SheFinds Poll: Readers Like to Show Off Their Labels

July 23, 2007 by SheFindsTara

Congratulations! Of all the SheFinds readers, 14 percent of you are really honest and admit to being “label whores.” For that 9 percent who is unsure what the heck it means to be a label whore, here’s a quick definition:

Label whore [noun, slang] is someone who only wears brand name clothes, with the name of the brand usually placed somewhere for all to see.”

Nearly 50 percent of you said it’s OK to be a label whore on occasion, and we second that opinion. Why not show off that Louis? I mean, it did cost you several hundreds of dollars, right? Or those fab Dior horsebit shades? We can’t resist.

Although, on the other hand, among a variety of other faux pas (like going braless), we don’t think it’s a good idea to wear label on top of label like walking advertisement gone dizzyingly awry. Statement pieces that say designer without the need for a big icon are sophisticated ways to show your pride without looking like you dressed yourself on Canal Street (the must-see NYC shopping spot for knock-offs and other cheap imitations brought straight to you from a sweatshop in China).

If you want to done luxury items that will scream designer without causing label overload, check out our guides to The Latest in Luxury and The Original and the Spin-off. And, if you just want to have fun, see if you can spot the designer find in our Taste Tests.
