Fashion Faux Pas

From Today's Fall Fashion Preview in the New York Times:

This outfit is the hot new thing and consists of a Lanvin zip-up silk blouse, $1,090, and Alexander Wang wide-leg herringbone pants, $585, both at Barneys New York. Karen Walker leather belt, $132 at Mick Margo; LaCrasia leather gloves, $200; Patricia Von Musulin hand-carved ebony ring, $825 at Takashimaya; Kelly Christy felt fedora, $300 to order from; ChloƩ leather satchel, $2,595 at ChloƩ.

For a grand total of $5,727.

Because I'm worth it.

Or, NOT!

I love fashion. And I believe in wearing what makes you feel good. But $5,727 for an outfit? Really?

Because that would make me feel down-right ugly.

    I read a story once about a woman who bought a Vera Wang dress. Whenever she felt glum, she'd throw on her Vera Wang and parade around the house, do chores, slum on the couch - it was her special dress that made her feel good.

    Let's both run out and get Vera Wangs! (Although, I may have to pass on the $1k purse and wait until the next paycheck *cough*)

    If wearing a fedora ever makes you feel good, we need to talk.
