    Yes and No.. not sure I could see myself sporting logo T.. but give me a denim jacket w patches or a designer belt with a obnoxiously large logo any day 🙂

    It reminds me of the adult version of Hollister or Abercrombie shirts. I think logos are tacky. I also think the idea of the company basically getting paid (huge amounts) to advertise their clothes is lame, although a smart move on their part haha.

      I agree with you 1000%, Caitlynn! Oh God – Abercrombie. We used to go crazy over that stuff as teens….

    I hate HATE the logo-insanity especially with purses. Also starting to hate it on shoes. UGH. I purposely avoid any styles with logos imprinted. If there’s a fob or tag that can be removed, I’ll go for those styles.
    I’m planning on posting a book review yet, but have you heard of the book “Deluxe: How Luxury Lost its Luster”? It talks a bit about logos and people’s obsession with the perception of quality:
    https://www.amazon.ca/Deluxe-How-Luxury-Lost-Luster/dp/0143113704
    It’s a bit dated now since it was released in 2007, but it goes a bit into historical aspects of luxury brands.
    I buy things for their intrinsic value and quality, NOT for the walking billboard that I’m paying to have the privilege of being. #endrant
    I guess now it’s the hipster douchebags being ironical? 😉 😛

      Stashy – “Deluxe” is one of my favourite books ever. I’ve read it so many times, it’s severely dog-eared. I was so let down to learn that the same factories that make knock-offs and really cheap bags are the same ones that make high-end bags. Sigh. It’s difficult to know what to spend your money on these days! I was really loving the return to subtle luxury and I don’t think I can bring myself to go back to the whole tacky logo trend. No thanks.

      As always, thanks for reading!

        Oh Dom, I’m so glad to hear you love that book! I was worried I’d offend. I know there’s so much brand worshiping these days, they’re blinded by the advertising. Yes, I was gutted to hear about luxury brands decreasing their quality in favour of profits and trying to conceal the country of origin of their products. I wish someone would write a follow up to that book!
        That book has made me want a Birkin now though lol. At least THOSE are still made by hand!

          Oh God! Not at all! I may be obsessed with designer goods, but I do my research before buying! If I feel it’s worth it, I’ll spend. If not, no thanks. OMG!!! I was soooo going to say the same thing about Birkins! They are the only luxury handmade bags out there made with truly high quality materials like palladium and crazy skins like albino crocodiles (kinda sad). Are they worth $10K+? I don’t know about that. Are they worth $2K? Hell to the yes!!!

      Oh wow! Thank you! Alas, I no longer meet the criteria. Much appreciated though. Take care!

    One word. Blech! I can’t stand it! Its so ostentatious and obnoxious IMO. And I can’t agree more re Moschino and that Barbie BS. I love Barbie. I even did a blog post about her. But that line was a wrinkle in time that I’d love to forget about. That being said, Chanel’s CC’s are ALWAYS ok in moderation. I fall over for that hair clip above! Great article! xoxo

    Great post! I will take part in the trend but on a subtle scale; such as the Gucci belt. I’m not into the flashy looks like the Moschino’s Barbie line.

    My favourites are the Moschino belt (love how she styled it!), the Gucci belt and the Kenzo sweater. And they can always offer me that Birkin of course!

    Omg Love love love your blog!

    I love the Moschino belt outfit. With all these comebacks in fashion part of me wishes I had held on to some of the stuff I had back in High School.

      I know, right? I kept a seemingly ridiculous bell-bottomed jumpsuit from Le Chateau that I bought in Gr. 12 and so happy I kept it. looks totally chic now!

      Thank you, my dear! I had fun writing it! Logos are good and bad. Some are ok – well, tolerable. Others are not. You ever see that pic of the guy who wrapped his entire cheap, run-down car in Louis Vuitton print skin? #smh
