Savvy Shopping or $2037 of Thakoon Trash

Last week Saks in Beverly Hills had a sale with prices as much as 70% off.
Do you ever wonder what their markup must be if they can discount
by 70% and still make a profit?

Do you ever wonder if their Open To Buy includes the directive to find
the ugliest clothes available if they are designed by the hip designer du jour?

Take this outfit for example. Even on sale for the low amount of $984 for the
dress, and $1053 for the jacket....and don't even get me started on the shoes...
I'd invest in Ford stock before investing $2037 in this outfit. And you know how I
feel about Ford.

Love your shoes… they are just fabulous.

Yeah, I don't get a lot of what passes for "fashion" these days. I've been thinking I must be just an old fuddy-duddy, but glad to know I'm not alone.

I guess that my point is that any one of the items is probably OK in a different grouping. But together, they are hideous. And $2000 for hideous...that's without another $500 or so for the shoes...is seriously insane.

Hi Nancy! This is indeed about the ugliest thing I've seen. A travesty of fashion. Isn't this one of Michelle Obama's favorite designers?

Enjoyed meeting you so much. You're gorgeous. The sites are great, saw a ring I love...The peacock!
