I have spent more on a book that I collect than I have on clothing however my original wedding dress 50 years ago was probably the most I spent! When I think back, it was ridiculous to wear something once, though I did get it slightly altered and wore it once more after.
Apart from that possibly about $185 on one outfit and even more than that on a pair of shoes.
Clothing was a Trent Nathan summer outfit that I bought for one New Years Eve and ended up not wearing it and it sat in my cupboard for years, unworn!
Nowadays, working in an op shop, there is little that I buy in an ordinary shop as I get first pick at all.
I have had some fabulous items of clothing worth HUGE amounts of money,but they have been gifts! My wedding dress which was designed by me, was created in return for a lot of signage which I did for the bridal Gown company!I still have this gown and it is perfectly wearable and a very classic style which will never date!It would have cost about $500 back in 1983 which was a great deal of money.
I have spent lots of money on shoes,as I believe in the best quality leather shoes which are made for MY feet,due to having severe arthritic ailments!
If it all comes down to what I LIKE to spend my spare cash on,it has to be books or Art Glass,or other art work.I haven't spent large amounts of money on clothing at all for at least 20 years.I get the the best bargains when I shop.Always!
As far as clothing goes, I spend very little, mostly buying sale items. Shoes however are a different matter as I have custom made orthotics hich cost an arm and a leg and even if I don't purchase custom made, as the shoes are always leather and the orthotic has to fit the shoe, I usually buy 2 or 3 pairs at a time as they last for years but often difficult to find something suitable.
probably a long dark coloured check skirt, in black, orange & warm lime green.back in the late 80's. I saw it on special for $100 from $200, thought about it for 1 week, then went back & bought it, & asked my husband to give it to me for my birthday, which of case he did. I didn't know at the time it was a designer label, until a NZ male friend asked me at a party if it was made by 'so & so'. I had to look at the table on the back of the skirt to find out. (Yes it was made by who ever he thought it was!)
