Proenza Schouler: Spring 2008 Sale

It’s 4:30AM and I’m trolling around the Net-a-Porter website to see if there’s anything I can afford because my friend in NY just got my el cheapo Margielic t-shirts. Unless an oil sheik papi chulo lands on my lap (or should I say I land on some oil sheik papi chulo’s lap), I really should NOT be spending anything at all ALL right now because the Marc Jacobs BB bag is gonna be available in a few months but hey… just because I’m on a diet it doesn’t mean I can’t look at the menu. Anyhooo.

Proenza Schouler Spring 2008 Sale

I know Proenza Schouler is expen$$$ive but holy Lazaro batman! Check out the retail prices of these two Proenza tops. The sequined tank top used to be $2,250 while the waistcoat was $1,825. Both items are now on sale at 30% and 50% off respectively.

I’m all for high fashion but aren’t the prices totally absurd? Isn’t America going through a recession right now? I remember 9 or 10 years ago, you can get a gorgeous wool coat from Louis Vuitton for $800. Yes! Eight hundred bucks.

Me: Ang mahalia jackson ng proenza peste sila!
(translation: Proenza is so expensive!)
Mike: I know
Me: Check out the vest and look at the original price
Mike: Wow!
Ano yan, hand-made?
(translation: Is that hand-made?)
Mike: Maybe it’s lined with fur
Maybe it’s Made in Italy by Italians
Me: Maybe it’s Made in Italy by Italians and lined in Russian Sable
Mike: with an expensive marketing chuva
Me: What marketing? Does Proenza even have ads?
Mike: Vogue ads
Me: I bet you may cut diyan si Anna Wintour
(translation: I bet you Anna Wintour has a cut on all sales)

Oh well. That’s fashion for you.
