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?
