Could use some advice/help on working through an obsession with brand name labels

I've noticed myself becoming obsessed with brand names. I only started to think of it as a problem when a couple weeks ago I finally scored one of my DREAM wardrobe pieces (Frye Melissa Lace-up Boots), and I haven't even worn them. I've been lusting after these boots for years, and now they're being kept pristine in a box under the bed while I google Celine nano handbags and Burberry trenches.

I can't afford luxury brands, so I don't know where this feeling of need has come from. I don't even own a purse - I use an American Apparel backpack that I bought in 2013 - so I can't explain why all of a sudden I feel like I have to have a $2k handbag. I've been married for three years, and my partner has never expressed an interest in designer goods, and I don't have any friends with such items. I really don't know where the desire has come from.

Has anyone else gone through this, and if so, do you have any advice for me? I'm not running up my credit cards or buying anything I can't afford yet, but the fixation is troubling me. I have a closet filled with very serviceable clothes, a lot of Topshop and AllSaints, things which I once thought stretched the very upper limits of my price range. I know that I should just wear them and be happy with them - they cost a lot of money! But it seems like I can't stop thinking about what to strive for next, instead of just relaxing with what I've got.

Thanks very much in advance! And for reading all of this.
