What is the most expensive thing you own – and do you wear it? – Corporatette.com

What is the most expensive piece of clothing you own, apart from your wedding dress – and do you wear it? On the flip side, what is one of the cheapest pieces of clothing you own that you wear all the time? Let’s exclude wedding dresses from the list…

Exclusive accessories and my wedding dress, the most expensive piece of clothing I own is probably a purple Armani jacket, bought on sale as a birthday gift to myself for my 35th. It hasn’t seen as much use as it would have if I’d been in an office, but I’ve definitely worn the jacket on every occasion to carry it.

As for the cheapest pieces of clothing I own when it comes to work clothes, I’ve had too many finds (or more!) under 70% off to remember just one – I’m a huge sale shopper. Some of my most used T-shirts are definitely “under $5” if they were on sale at Old Navy or whatever, and I’ve been wearing them for years. An example: remember the heyday of Groupon? I had a random “pay $20 for a $40 coupon” at Old Navy around 2011. I remember the year because I was pregnant with my first son and sent my mom to run into an Old Navy and just get me black t- shirts before the Groupon expired. It’s moved to my “pajama only” t-shirt pile, but I’m still wearing the damn thing. (That fashion math definitely works on it!)
