Just out of curiosity, I was looking at some clothes online from some popular Manhattan shops, and I was just blown away by some of the prices. I mean, it seems reasonable that there are some people out there who should be able to afford these clothes. But how could there be enough that there's a whole STORE full of these clothes? During a recession, no less. It's mind boggling.
I've highlighted this shirt as particularly baffling, because not only is it $750, it's UGLY. If I wore this shirt, I would look like a pregnant Amish person.
Oh, and this bag costs $21,500. How is that possible? It's a handbag. My bag cost $10 at Target and I was looking for one that was a little cheaper. What is the obsession with nice handbags? (I know way too much about handbags now due to Lauren Weisberger and Sophie Kinsella.)
No matter how much money I make, I will never be able to justify spending that kind of money on clothes and purses.
