Hey we'll never know who's being honest and who isn't so lets not waste energy worrying about it. Let just enjoy talking about fashion.

My purchase? Some Dolce and Gabanna motorcycle boots for £495, last winter. I still love them - phew!
I've bought a few bits here and there around the £300 mark but I don't make a habit of it. Generally accessories as they add to an outfit IMO.

I got a belt in Selfridges last year that was £160 but it is beautiful.
My new rule (to make me feel less guilty) is that I am allowed to buy expensive clothing ONLY from my eBay profits (I buy and sell vintage).

The reason for the guilt? Last year my partner and I started our own business so I can't be as free and easy with money - my eBay is my clothes spending money and I feel that way it doesn't impact on my other business. If I buy expensive clothes -I'm spending our money and it doesn't feel right, especially because my partner spends practically nothing on clothes.

I would love a Chloe bracelet bag, but thats a hell of alot of ebaying and I don't really have a use for smart handbags (so I don't own any) as I don't have the kind of lifestyle that demands I carry one (I work from home, for a start).

But what if our ultra-dull lives are in fact, ultra glamorous?

i'd say those were all pretty good investments...aside from the stella which has unfortunately become as common as a bag from the gap now...if not more so...

I think the most expensive thing that I have bought for myself, things my folks or boyfriend have bought me does not count, is a sweater from a store called AZARA for $300.00.

It is a pink coloured sweater with a big poofy neck that comes off with safety pins attach at the neck through these metal holes. And the sleeves are knit the same way as the neck.

The minute I left the store I threw away the reciept and the tags because I knew if I went home and thought about the purchase I would probably return the sweater.

LOL@the chanel_girl fiasco.

Exactly, softie!!! I mean, that's the reason why I expressed my doubts in the first place.I don't want to be taken for a fool, even if in the virtual world. At least if I'm going to envy someone's wardrobe, I want to know that it's a real wardrobe!!

I don't know what my most expensive purchase is, but I really only spend on accesories (probably all under $1500) and shoes (mostly under $500, some boots were more). I have a limited amount of designer clothes, and the rest of my stuff is very casual stuff, I wear jeans everyday (most of my jeans are between $125 and $250). I am also in the process of selling off some of my bags (I have made my final decision that many of the MJs must go), and am putting that money into the bank until I find something I really love.

Iīve been reading this tread and there is one thing i donīt understand....

Why do you all think Chanel girl is lying? Because she says she owns haute couture? If i had the money couldnīt i owe that? Just asking this because i donīt know how impossible that is.

Besides that, in case it isnīt impossible, i thing anyone whom ever posted in this tread could be lying, no?! This is internet, as someone said....

the most i've ever spend on a single item is on bags. either a dark brown mulberry piccadilly bag or a brown vuitton cherry blossom papillon. they were both around $1000
