| | the most $$$$ piece of clothing
I walked in a Neiman Marcus. No, that's not where I normally, or ever shop. But I just walked in.
Then I saw a nice dress. On that same floor only that dress caught my eye. When I went to take a closer look, I found the entire rack to be equally stunning. Probably 5 dresses I would put on in a heart beat. The brand was something I had never heard of, so I discreetly searched for a price tag before the sales lady approached me, smiled nicely, and told me Kelly Ripa had one of these.
I don't even know what show or movie she was in. Don't watch much TV. But that should have set the alarm off. I continued to search for the tag and she asked me if I was looking for the SIZE. Sure. Finally....$3000. And the perfect size for me, a 36.
Haute Couture is not my vocab. All I saw was a beautiful dress that would fit me perfectly. I started wondering, who buys these things?
So, out of curiosity, what is the most expensive piece of clothing you have ever owned? I will volunteer mine. I grabbed a nice Burberry trench coat once on final sale at the outlet. It was $800. That took lots of teeth grinding and repeated self questioning.
