Ready To Give Up On Life? What These Celebs Are Paying $800 For Will Certainly Help

On today’s episode of Everything is Terrible and Money’s the Worst, we present to you yet another celebrity atrocity.

When it comes to melting Amex cards, few do it better than the celebs we all love to resent with every fiber of our being. While we’re over here pinching pennies so that we don’t have to start eating cat food, they’re out living painfully lavish lives just ’cause.

Before we get into the thing that’s going to make you throw any hope you had left to the wind, let’s think for a moment about what someone could buy with, say, $800.

1. A new set of Goodyear tires with money to spare.

2. About 20 killer pairs of shoes from JustFab.com.

3. Roughly 645 boxes of dry pasta, because pasta will never leave you.

4. A 6.5-year subscription to Spotify.

5. A round-trip ticket from New York City to London.

6. A 2-year supply of paper towels.

7. An all-inclusive, 3-night getaway in the Bahamas.

But celebrities are over here like, “Forget all that. I need drop exorbitant amounts of money on something I could easily grab at Target.” Ladies and gentlemen, meet the infamous $800 sweatshirts by VÊTEMENTS.

Not everything produced by the brand, which is directed by Demna Gvasalia, is a complete and utter waste. In fact, the design house’s offbeat take on high fashion typically yields beautiful results. Even I must admit that this hoodie looked pretty fierce when it hit the runway.

But fierce enough for me to give up my half of the rent this month? Absolutely not. I think it’s safe to say, however, that these stars don’t see things the way I do. What’s up, Kanye?

Riri is apparently putting in the work it takes to wrap herself in $800 poly blend.

And if you ask Selena Gomez, there’s nothing better than turning a trip to the airport into a gross display of wealth!

Italian style darling Chiara Ferragni spits in the face of accessible fashion, because why relate to the millions of people who follow your blog, anyway?

Later that day, Kylie Jenner cried golden tears into her $30 açaí bowl on national television, because her struggle is “literally so real.”

Oh, and guess what. Both of these sweatshirts are completely sold out. Let that sink in.

Am I bitter? Absolutely! Do I wish that I was in a financial position that made spending $800 on leisure clothes seem like a good idea? Yup. Sadly for me (and basically everyone else), that’s probably not in the cards. If you need me, I’ll be in the throes of an existential crisis or something.
