My friend went to the mall with me and her mom dropped us off at the mall with 'just a couple hundred dollars'. She bought a 400 dollar designer dress with the money, then started crying and yelling when her mom wouldn't let her buy the matching 200 dollar shoes. I was like wtf!!
On the other hand, when I went home, I would chill with all my neighbors and friends. it was more normal. Guys went out with you for the way you looked and acted, not just the labels on your clothes. We would go to Payless and put stuff on hold for when we could afford them, and it was never a big deal. Somehow I think that if you don't have money, you are generally happier, because you accept what you have and what you don't have, and that's not an issue when you're hanging out with your friends and shit. You chill with them, go get food, whatever, but it's so much realer where I live than the gated communities where other people live, and go shopping at elite designer boutiques to show off for fun.
