Chris Abraham Returns!! Part 2 of a Conversation about the Value of Fluff & Red Carpet Events.

Chris Abraham returns for part 2 of a conversation about the relative cost of celebrity-hood as compared to what it costs. Does celebrity justify the expenditure?
The conversation turns from celebrity to actually talking about the context of cost versus perceived value as it applies to everyday life and your typical consumer. The question would be is what’s a reasonable expenditure and what’s unreasonable? Is 800 thread count sheets over the top? Would 400 thread count not work just as well? How about 250 thread count?

At what point do you buy things just “to buy” versus buying something as an investment as in a perfect pair of black , navy or grey pants or trousers that fit well and have them tailored to fit. The point being if you get years of wear (providing you stay in the same size range) from a specific piece of apparel (or accessory) and it becomes a staple that works with a number of tops/shirts and jackets allowing you to bring the cost of perhaps $200 for the initial purchase to the cost per wear– which could be 50 cents or less if you hold a great pair of pants for about 4-5 years if you wear them once a week.

Part of what this conversation evolves as it continues to be about confidence and what you do, what you feel and what you wear. It’s not about the confidence you derive from the clothing you wear, rather that the clothing should just be the icing on the cake of your confident self.
The example of students on scholarship to Ivy League schools often don’t feel quite up to par as those whose families have a history of attendance to Ivy League schools and how to learn that if you *earned* your place, and didn’t just buy your way in– grades being relatively equal.
