A tier that fits
shopping/browsing the other day, i sought out a particular label and found it on a floor i don't normally visit. the clothing was priced about $100-$200 (for starters) higher than some brands on a ... *ahem* lower level, but there were other designers located on this floor with much much higher price tags. i'm not sure what the criteria is for stores to put certain designers on certain floors. i am also realizing that i can't just let stores decide for me where i should shop - if they group a majority of appealing labels (or price tags) together, and remove others that i would be interested in, i will seek them out.
are you aware of having a "level"? how do you identify it?
