Don't be a walking-talking billboard

I love this new tweed  panelled jacket I got from Debenhams. I love the structure and that it's not completely black. The colours in the jacket match my skirt nicely. I matched my shoes to my top, and added dark gray beaded jewelry to set off the black of the jacket.
While taking these photos, this lady came up to me and asked me if I'm a model. After explaining that I'm not and this is for my blog, we got to talking and had a really nice discussion about Bahrain, Arab beauty and how too many young girls in this region are brand victims. She had a really funny way of putting it- "These girls buy a bag just because it has a Christian Dior 'D' on it. They don't even see that the design of the bag is boring and looks like it's from years ago." I couldn't agree more. Buy clothes that are you. That reflect your personality, style, and most importantly, that are comfortable and practical for you. Don't be a walking-talking billboard for designer logos.
