Have you ever seen clothes or shoes that you really wanted, but then you saw the price and seeing it hurt to much that it feels like a kick in?

... the vagina? I am having that feeling right now and thinking to myself "Whhhhyyy you so expensive? ;A;

  • Yeah but you have to think of it in cost-per-wear terms.

    If you spend $1000 on a classic leather jacket and you wear it 500 times, that's $2 per wear -- which, considering both kinds of "durability" (physical and style-wise), is probably cheaper in the long run than something from the mall. Not to mention substantially more fab.
    If yr on a limited budget, then, obviously you'll have to pick and choose these kinds of items very carefully, but, you really can't go wrong investing in some TRULY classic styles.
    * Classic black pumps
    * Knee high boots
    * A nice black leather jacket
    These items are worth splurging on. In cost-per-wear terms, you'll find that they might become some of the cheapest items in yr whole wardrobe, I swears to ya.

    Also -- for everything except shoes -- **IF** yr tastes are not too "trendy", you should be able to re-sell sufficiently upscale clothing at prices very close to what you initially paid for it.
    Just as an example, I have way, way too many Hervé dresses. But, I can consistently sell them for within $50-100 of what I originally paid for them -- after wearing them several times. So, that's less than $10 per wear.

    So... yeah. As long as you can rein it in, to the point where you can afford the credit-card bills -- and as long as yr tastes don't run too "trendy", toward clothes that will immediately lose almost all their resale value (I'm lookin' at you, Balmain) -- the more expensive stuff might actually be less expensive, in the long run.

  • When I see that, I immediately despise the item, and render it worthless... I feel completely disgusted by whoever buys it, and for the company that sells it, because they're trying to trick me and assuming that I don't have the judgment to see that it's not worth that. They're taking me for a fool. Shame on them. I want to be respected as a customer, and not be treated like a bag of money

  • I saw a phone I really wanted. Then I saw the price-tag. I could afford it, but I didn't buy it.

    I have self-worth problems.

  • Not with clothes, but once I saw the price on a 16 GB RAM stick and I was like:
    "WHY MUST YOU HURT ME IN THIS WAY?"
    Also, with people who have interesting sex lives. Or sex lives at all.
    But that was more like envy, not pain.
