The Horror: Highway Robbery

Guess how much this peach dress is? You can pre-order it now at Nordstrom for $695. $695! This looks like one of Victoria's Secret's terry cloth cover-ups. It's not even made of silk; it's polyester! The cut is beachy and loose; it by no means involves the sharp tailoring I like in designer clothing. The label is St. John, but that wouldn't get me to think about forking over more than $50 for this dress either. If I were to spend nearly $700 on a dress (hahahaha!), Alexander McQueen has a finely tailored wool dress on sale for $674. This feels like nothing more than practicing Chanel's maxim that rich people will buy things because they are expensive.

Is it just me, or is NOTHING made out of silk anymore?

Going to Victoria's Secret means nothing but polyester.

I would find hemp or bamboo a much more acceptable alternative to poly.

Now, excuse me while I unstick my nose out of the air.
