I tried on a $1100 jacket today.
This beautiful charcoal and deep purple creation was crafted by the hands of a thousand Italians using the most soft and supple materials, ever.
So I try it on. Honest to God, it was actually made for me. If you flipped the little tag it would have said ‘Specifically made for Simonne’.
But before, I could flip the little tag, I look down the sleeve and see the price tag hanging out. And dear God it read $1100. My eyes nearly bugged out of my head and I was immediately too afraid to move. I was pretty certain if I made any sudden movements, the jacket would have spontaneously combusted.
So I carefully shrug out it, hang it up, and back away slowly, never to return to that jacket again.
