There's nothing wrong with having a desire to want nice things. It's when we place that as a measure of the value of ourselves that it goes askew.
For the moment I prefer to be a beautiful woman of my age than try desperately to look 30.
The thing is most people are afraid to step out, to take a chance beyond their established identity.
Not caring more about what other people think than what you think. That's freedom.
