World’s Most Expensive T-Shirt

In my eyes, a t-shirt is meant to be a basic or worn if it has something exceptionally amusing or amazing on it. This is neither.  Yet it is the world’s most expensive t-shirt, retailing for about $400,000.  Seems like a bargain right?  (Sorry there was no font for sarcasm.)  Whether you think it’s ridiculously high priced or not, the shirt isn’t just boasting a high price – it’s also boasting how environmentally conscious it is.

The site explains, “This one of a kind luxury product has been made using only renewable energy sources (for example Wind & Solar power) and represents a C02 reduction of 90% compared to traditional t-shirt production. The garment itself is made from 100% organic cotton…..”

Convinced that it’s worth $400,000 yet?  Well don’t forget the diamonds.  The spherical pattern is decorated with 16 hand-set diamonds, each promising exquisite color, clarity, cut, and luster.  That’s 8 white diamonds each over 1ct, and another 8 “enhanced” black diamonds also each over 1ct each.  I don’t know who the target customer really is, but I hope they plan on buying me one too.

The Power of Flowers

Since we are so madly in love with the Etro pants we featured a few days ago but realistically we know splurging on floral printed pants for $696 isn’t always the best option…we thought we’d share of few other favorites we found (printed pants are popping up in every shape and size this season & we’re kind of loving all of them.)

In order of steal:

Forever 21 – $29.80, Yumi Kim – $58, Clover Canyon – $202, Elizabeth & James – $325
