Is This A Joke?

I was perusing Net-A-Porter this morning for a dress for my event next week when I came across this Balmain t-shirt.

I laughed thinking- ok, this looks like something you might find in a trash bin or a rag you MAYBE could wash your car with. I chuckled to myself about the ridiculousness of the fashion industry sometimes, and the trends they try to inflict on us no matter how bizarre.

AND THEN I SAW THE PRICE.

How can anyone in their right mind find it even remotely reasonable to charge $1,600 for this?!?!?!!? I am shocked. SHOCKED. And a bit insulted that designers think we, as consumers, are this stupid! I don’t care how filthy rich you are, you cannot justify spending that much on a cotton t-shirt with holes it it because it has a Balmain label sewn in it!

I just had to share, as I think this is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. Have a great weekend!
