Well thanks to Balmain, I look like a bargain hunter! Their olive green t-shirt is retailing for $1,625 on Net-A-Porter. Lets see what that equates to in NYC terms:
-1 months rent
-1.5 years of monthly unlimited metro cards
-60 Sunday brunches at Mercadito
-3 nights of bottle service in a club
Although I tend to cringe when shopping with my Mom and she dashes for the sale rack (ugh!), I definitely see no reason to spend THAT much on a ratty T.
What's the most you've spent on a layering basic?
