Why I don’t own expensive stuff

My colleagues were discussing something when one of them picked up my sunglasses and asked what brand it is. I said it’s from an online site and it’s not expensive. He looked at me weirdly. See, I know that they like branded stuff so maybe I replied “too” defensively. 😀

He said that it looks good but why was I wearing cheap glasses?


 Well, here’s my reply:

I don’t own expensive stuff because I end up either sitting on them or B would play with it and eventually either one of us loses it. If I only have cheap accessories, then it won’t be too hard when I lose or break it. Right?

Is it just me or does this make sense to you?

    Same goes for me. I buy my shades from Splash, and only when there’s a sale. For me, anything higher than 20 riyals is pricey for a pair of shades.
