Fashionista.com asks How Much Money Are You Wearing Today? It’s interesting to see the various total outfit costs posted in the comments.
Of course, as I’ve said before, it’s not the initial cost of an item that matters to me but its cost per wear over time. Even so, I thought I’d try and add up the cost of what I’m wearing today. I’m wearing a fairly new pair of pants, purchased for around $6-$8 at T.J. Maxx. My shoes were bought at Target last year for somewhere between $10 and $20 and my bra is brand-new, $13 (marked down from $45) from Vicki’s. However, I bought my shirt and underwear so long ago (2 years and approximately 6 years, respectively) that I can’t even remember what they cost.
And the scary thing is, I have even older socks and underwear in my drawers, and that’s after a serious purging effort. That’s why I named my blog “The Wardrobe Miser.”
