Of course, I do also get the occasional skeptical/snide comment but I don't give a shit. I go to a pretty small school so basically everyone knows me and they pretty much know what to expect to a certain degree, I guess.
There were some older topics before about how it sometimes gets awkward when people ask you where
you get your clothes from and who makes them and you sort of have to make that judgment call about explaining how, well actually, this is made by ____ designer...no you've probably never heard of him/her/it....where did I buy it..? Uhh...well there's this boutique in NYC/LA/Japan, or even better...you know, the internet...
Yeah that shit can get messy, Chrono taught me that discretion or playing dumb is usually the best answer.
When people ask about something i am wearing, i almost always just tell them i got it online. Its pretty much always true, and i dont really want to explain much further. There aren't many people around here that would be aware of the brands im wearing anyway, except maybe when i occasionally wear my old nudies.
I probably get compliments on my glasses and necklaces more than anything else. But i also get compliments about my style or outfit in general, moreso than individual items.
A few weekends ago when i was out a couple girls touched/inspected everything i was wearing, even my plain white spring courts.
