What Not to Wear

09 Mar

My husband is in class on Tuesday nights, and I’ve started watching “What Not to Wear” on TLC. Overall, I enjoy the show. I think the hosts do a very good job of being sensitive to the needs of the women they are working with.

But what gets me most is what these people get (or don’t get) with their $5,000 dollars from the show. I accept that they are shopping in New York city, but does that mean they aren’t allowed to shop sales, or go to someplace like Penny’s or Sears, where prices are a little more reasonable?

    my guess is those expensive shops help fund the show so the shops need face time on the show itself.

    they used to go to h&m and old navy–not often but sometimes. my favorite example of what you’re talking about is when a woman spent nearly half of her $5000 on a prada dress. seriously, $2500 on one dress! i could clothe my entire family for 2+ years on that kind of money!
