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

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

In terms of the most inexpensive pieces of clothing I own in terms of workwear, I’ve had too many under 70% off finds (or more!) to remember any single one – I’m a huge sale shopper. Some of my most-worn T-shirts are definitely in the “under $5” range if they were on sale at Old Navy or whatever, and I’ve been wearing them for years and 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 mother to run into an Old Navy and just get me black t-shirts before the Groupon expired. She got me several, all of which I wore for years, and I still have one — the shirt has now moved to my “pajama only” t-shirt pile, but I’m still wearing the darn thing. (The fashion math definitely works out on that one!)

Readers, how about you — what is the most expensive piece of clothing you own (that you wear), and what’s the least?
