Uggs. Never been into them.

I used to love OPI, but I’m kind of over nail polish in general.

flip flops. i don’t understand how people can wear them all day every day. i’ll wear them if i have to step outside real quick or to the beach or whatever, but they’re not my primary choice of footwear. i find them uncomfortable. 

any clothing/accessories by a fancy, expensive designer.

Definitely StarBucks… I’m spoiled though Toronto has so many fantastic independant coffee shops. And Coach. It just seems like their quality isn’t what iy used to be.

I’m not a sucker for…

-designer handbags

-perfume (I’ve had one single bottle for AGES)

-Sephora

-Kindles/Nooks (still gotta get my hands on the paper book!)

-Uggs (the salt stains in the winter…ugh!)

-Stillettos (where have all the wedge heals gone? thank goodness for dressy boots!)

-designer jeans (my jeans take too much abuse to be worth more than $40/pair)

i actually had to Google “designer purses” cause I could not for the life of me remember the name but Vera Bradley purses. They are UGLY AS SIN, and in my mind they look like diaper bags. lol

UGGS-ugly and too many women wear them with shorts, or something that defeats the purpose of SNOW boots.

Starbucks(why pay that much after waiting in line for 20 minutes??)

Not a brand, but hummus. So trendy yet tastes like feet

Designer make up. Honestly, Maybelline/Avon/Revlon does the same thing for a Fraction of the price. Its unreal

not a fan of banana republic, jcrew and armani exchange. i also can’t stand steve madden, their shoes are so poorly made. 

haha i wasn’t aware that people were still wearing UGGs these days. when i lived in michigan i would wear them in the winter, and as comfy as they were, the salt stains were hideous and they got so worn out i had to throw them out after 2 winters.

MarriedToMyWork:  I’m so with you on your fragrance ‘hates,’ especially Caron. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, from that house has ever worked for me and I seriously do not get all the praise heaped upon them. It’s so tempting to blame reformulation, but I have some samples of Tabac Blond and Farnesiana from the pre-IFRA glory days and they are definitely not all that. As a matter of fact, they’re awful IMHO.

A brand with many loyal followers that makes me go ‘WTF’ is Lululemon. OK, I get it. Their yoga pants are amazing…except I can’t figure out what’s so amazing about them. Paying more for quality is usually my rule but to me, the quality doesn’t justify the prices they charge. So I guess I’ll keep on wearing my Old Navy workout gear…it’s good enough to sweat in.

Lululemon! Not worth supporting their asshole CEO (or the price)

Coach/Michael Kors 

Abercrombie & Fitch / Gap / Guess / Express / Free People 

Dooney and Burke – the 80s/90s bags were great, I have an awesome vintage one but the new stupid prints are just out of control.

Tory Burch

I don’t understand the Kate Spade love. It’s replaced Coach as the ultimate obsessed for suburban women and 13-year-old mallrats.

At least Coach was well made, but every article of clothing I’ve bought from Kate Spade has been subpar, and their leather goods are also lacking in quality for the price. I’ve learned my lesson to stay away, though I have jewellery and flats from there that I’m pleased with.

American Apparel: I really appreciate how they make all their clothing and fabrics in the US for fair wages, (at least, they used to) but… Their advertising is so exploitive of women that I’ve boycotted it totally.
