It is not often I call out overpriced items but really, when I see something like this, I can't keep it to myself.
I have been a fan of Anthropologie for a while. The kind of fan that browses through the website and/or store and finds inspiration for my actual shopping trips where I find similar stuff that is not so wildly overpriced. But today I happened upon an item that just took the fricking cake.
This 10x15.5 cotton purse is $428. The main fabric is cotton, and the lining is cotton - no satin or silk here. The closure is magnetic, no sparkly button or semiprecious bit to add some flair. $428. With taxes, you're paying almost FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS for barely a yard of cotton.
It says Italy - don't know if that means it's made in Italy or the cotton is Italian, but either way, give me a break here. To charge this amount of money for a rather homely little clutch is pure robbery.
I am so tempted to go get some fabric and make something similar except this purse is too damn ugly to even try to replicate. It's not worth my time and about $8 worth of materials, and it's definitely not worth paying $428!!!
I know it's Anthropologie and all, but this is ridiculous.
