HAUTE $1100 POTATO SACK COUTURE.


When my mom came home from vacation with a little surprise for me, I never would of guessed it would be this, to say the least. To make a long story short, her friend bought this lovely Oscar de la Renta number a few days beforehand, only realizing she hated it and vowed to dispose of it immediately. My mom, being the good mom she is, brought it back home for me, where I happily put it in the 'casual & exercise' section of my closet. Case closed. However, after a little more research, I not only found out this baby was $1100, but it was made of the same cloth of potato sacks. *facepalm* You could imagine my dismay as I was planning on jogging in it this morning. My little story begs this question - why would anyone want to buy something like this .... for THAT price? I reiterate, it's a lovely top, but REALLY? And now I ask you, faithful readers, if you were to buy something that costs $1100, what would it be?

I would never pay anywhere near $1,000 for a shirt, no matter who made it. Lol. That's awesome you got it for free! :)

My bf just got an Oscar De La Renta sweater from Macy's for only $9!! I'm tempted to buy myself one in a different color. Now that's a price I don't mind paying. Haha.

Hope you're having a fab week! xo

Hi there-wow, you scored well to get this as a gift, but it certainly is a lot of money to pay otherwise!

Juliet said...

Almost all the bags I plan to get cost +1000€, I wouldn't have bought the shirt for the price, but some people just have enough of money to do so.

if i were to buy something that cost $1100 right it would a one way plane ticket to italy and a beach front room

or perhaps some louboutin

If I had that kinda money it'd so be spent on travelling. Or candy.

ak said...

oh wow thats amazing. its insane to spend that on a top..i like spending my money on bags..classic bags of course. i will never tire of my balenciaga. i think its important to spend money on great staples that are sure to last you.

Haha! I love the fact that it was constructed from potato sacks...that's a first!

I don't think I'd be able to spend $1100 on anything without feeling guilty; but I really want a pair of Golden Goose Boots. They're about $1100 and I'm in love with them!

Cute hat, by the way!! :)

gleenn said...

yeah, i go with jennifer. i would never pay for anything like that for such a price. even for a pair of shoes that i really fancy? they're worth like a fortune. after i checked the price, their beauty just immediately vanished.

Andie said...

cute shirt, but if i were planning on dropping a grand on a top it would probably have to be a tad more intricate. makes for a great story, though..

Glowing Doll said...

I'm not sure but it would definitely be from Luisaviaroma.

Faridah said...

It always surprises me why people spend so much money on items that don't seem the value. I would however consider spending that much on the Alexa Mulberry bag. Oh I dream for that bag! Lucky you for scoring the shirt for freeee ;-)
