Yep, that sweater right there that Gwyneth herself is modelling. The blue one with the hearts and the elbow patches. It will be $500, please. Or, well, actually $515. But it’s part of the GOOP Collection, all right? You’re paying for 100% cashmere and impeccable taste. For all that, she’s practically giving it away at $515.
But if the $515 is too much for you poor folk, she’s got another sweater, and this one is only $485, because Gwyneth understands that times are tough:
And see, you still get the cashmere, you still get the elbow patches, and you still get the comfort of knowing that Gwyneth Paltrow took the time to design a sweater for you, the working class.
But hey, is she serious with this? Because I really need to know if she’s serious with this. $500 for one single sweater, is that something that people actually pay for? And of course I realize that cashmere costs more than your regular old wool or whatever, but honestly? My entire outfit cost about $25, and that’s including my awesome shoes that I’ve worn pretty much every day this summer (they’re made from vegetables!). The most expensive item in my whole closet cost about $250, but it’s a coat I got this past spring for about 80% off. And I can’t be completely sure, but I’m pretty sure that my shopping habits are closer to average than Gwyneth’s idea of “hey, come spend hundreds of your dollars on my stupid sweater.” Right?
