400 Euro on clothes/Shoes each month

1 pair of Designer Shoes Each month = 300-400 Euro

1 Designer Sunglasses each season = 250-300 Euro

4 Designer Bags a year = 1200-2800 Euro

Last year was the first year in my life I ever gave a damn about clothes...I spent about $3800-4000. (2 suits, some shirts, some jeans/pants, 2 sweaters, some tees)

I average $1000 a month. I don't buy for seasons...a lot of my clothes can be worn year round. If I see something I like, I buy it (which is a really bad habit. ) And I try not to buy trendy items unless they're reasonable in cost.

Hey, that`s my Shopping-Philosophy too! If something is cool it must be bought - and an occasion to wear it will find itself

And I buy clothes that can be worn all year because we have the same shabby weather all year (It totally pisses me off that Fashion Trends are highy influenced by Hollywood Stars who live in a warm climate - while my climate would leave me like 10 nights PER YEAR to wear f.e. Strappy Sandals...)

PS: You`re doing good with not spending much on trendy items - I so HATE my Chanel Sunglasses that I bought last season now ...and I only wore it once...

Same here. But I think I spent less on more clothes.

I nearly never buy clothes, but when I do it is usually secondhand, and I spend maybe $20-$30 per shopping trip.

I buy fabric and patterns sometimes.

On average, it probably comes out to about $20/month, though some months I buy nothing whatsoever, then another month I might have a $70 spree at the fabric shop.

I haven't bought a pair of shoes in almost 4 years, though I was given a pair of 20-eyelet Doc Martens for Christmas last year, and those are around $130.

I bought one new tee-shirt this past year, for $10 at Target...it was Oscar the Grouch, and I just plain couldn't resist!

Well in the past I was a fashion wreck...i wore these tight phat farm jeans (literally tight, not tight in the slang term) and horrible Ecko Hawaiian shirts with motorcycles on them.
