Dont forget to send an invite 😉
Almost £3k for a beautiful outfit to a wedding including shoes, watch, jewellery, coat and matching bag.
I walked out on the guy I was dating under sordid circumstances four days before the wedding and couldn't face going knowing that he would be attending & sure to approach me trying to get me to take him back.

Never wore the outfit.
Although I don't regret buying it.
The next year an honour abuse survivor got married wearing it and looked much better than I ever would have.

I thought to buy a western coat for £300 when I walked around a middle age festival, but I didn't do. The most expensive item I bought were a pairs of sneakers for approximately £70 and the same sum of money for winter boots.
I have spent quite a bit on things but have no regrets.

A couple of things:
Dyson Airwrap (2 years ago) -> £400
MacBook Air (6-7 years ago?) -> £1200
Some of my clothes/shoes range between the price of £90 - £200 but have had them for a couple of years and counting.
I spent money on fashionable clothes, especially jeans and leather jackets.

I still have my prom suit/outfit... I wore it once, way back in 2011, and never touched it ever since. I probably couldn't fit in it now if I even wanted to wear it...
Probably paid too much for it as well, but hey, you only live once.

As for really expensive fashion items... I don't bother, because I know they are too expensive for what they are.
Lovely new trouser suit 4 months ago and still havnt worn it
Spend $100 on nail paints a month ago
I spend $40 on shoes yesterday :u:
