Mrs Righton’s back in London
Keira Knightley was out in London last night after getting married to James Righton in France and then honeymooning in Corsica. They were away for about a week. Back at home now, she hit up the Groucho Club with some friends on her own wearing the same leather jacket she had on over dungarees. There’s a wardrobe investment, right? A leather jacket you love is always a good investment. Because you’ll wear it all the time. Which means you can easily get the cost-per-wear (I talk about this a lot -- my “CPW”) down to almost nothing.
Keira’s is Balenciaga. It retails for $3000 if you count the tax. Here’s how I would try to justify it beyond my usual rationalisations, like we don’t own a home and we don’t have kids so we don’t have to put away for our child’s education, and, oh yeah, the reality of my credit card not going that high:
If I bought this jacket, I’d wear it at least 15 times a month for at least 5 months of the year for at least 3 years. That brings the CPW down to $13...unless I see another jacket I like next year, although of course, when you’re making purchases like this, you always promise you’ll never love another jacket as much as you love this one.
