I asked Bridget this question, but seeing as even Liquid Independence was interested, I thought it would be fun to pose this question to everyone out there!
I’ll go first, and list my top 3 most expensive wardrobe items because they’re basically all coats.
BURBERRY COTTON TRENCH COAT
$1695 (before taxes)
Purchased in June 2012 and came with two different belts and two different cuffs so you can mix and match.
It was also on sale, believe it or not, as it was originally $1900 or something like that. It was also the last US Size 4 in the whole of Canada.
UPDATE: I sold it for $1100
It’s not that I didn’t still love it, it is that after Little Bun, my shoulders and torso expanded, and I couldn’t fit into it any longer. *SOB*
2nd most expensive:
BURBERRY CASHMERE & WOOL BLACK TRENCH COAT
$1595 (before taxes)
Purchased some time in 2011 before I sold my two blogs, and started this one in 2012!
It was NOT on sale.
(This coat alone cost about the same amount of money as my first car!!)
STILL LOVE IT! I still wear it, and get lots of love and wear out of it. I even wore it so much I replaced the lining.
3rd most expensive:
CANADA GOOSE TRILLIUM JACKET – $650
Purchased in September 2012 after I finally caved in to the reality that is the Canadian winter.
This coat, is worth it though. Absolutely 100% OMG worth it in a Canadian Winter.
Then it goes down to (I think) $678 for my cognac m0851 perfecto leather jacket, $400 for a sweater, $350 for a vintage Cole Haan laptop bag, you know.. still expensive stuff.
Hmm. I should really tally up what everything in my wardrobe costs, out of curiousity.
So I think it’s safe to say I am not conventionally frugal when it comes to clothes, and I am willing to drop good coin on high quality items.
What’s the most money you’ve ever spent on a piece of clothing that is still in your closet?
(P.S. This is meant to be fun. Please don’t slag me in the comments.)
