This nylon parka by Jil Sander:

A mere €1,090. I'm not sure how much that is in dollars... but it's certainly a lot!

I'm always surprised with ipad cases made by some important designer... it shocks me to see that some of the cases cost more (a lot more) than the actual ipad!

Those panel shorts.

I don't have any pictures to show and mine isn't a huge $$$$ sticker shock, but the other day I was at a store that generally has discounted items, most of the time for very cheap. And I picked up this horrendous sequin/beaded dress that was ill-fitted and straight from a closet of the golden girl's cast. I figured it would be an 80's dirt cheap discount dress but the sticker price was well over a $100 and it happened to be Alice + Olivia. Sometimes I just wonder how those pieces are ever sold...

I saw that parka and was really shocked. How can they sell this one at that price? You get nearly identical ones for 30 euro.

I also scratch my head at simple cotton shirts for over 500 euro. Or any tee over 150 euro. Materials like cotton, polyester, nylon aren't expensive and any items made from them shouldn't be either.
