Writing about style and sometimes being so immersed in the warped world of fashion, you forget how skewed your views on the value of some things has become.

£300 for a pair of sunglasses, £500 for a pair of sandals. £900 on a bag. It all starts to seem quite normal. Then along comes an item that brings you back down to earth and hard reality with a bang.

Case in point these Margiela trousers.

Holy hell. These things are for sale over at LNCC for £540.

You could buy a second hand car for that or have an amazing holiday.

We often justify things on a cost per wear basis. Be let's be honest, someone is going to wear these things 2 or 3 times before they are sick of the visual joke. 

I just don't feel like laughing today...

On a more positive note, it has reminded me to look out my tabi boots for the Autumn...
