How Fast Could You Spend $2,000 At French Connection?

First of all, did you even know that French Connection still exists? Second of all, according to the Huffington Post, Angelie Jolie managed to drop $2,000 at an FC in London in just 15 minutes.

Now, it’s not that surprising that richie-rich Jolie dropped $2,000 anywhere — in fact, when I read the HuffPo headline, which reads: “Angelina Jolie Spends $2,000 In 15 Minute Shopping Spree,” I thought….well, sure. She probably just went and bought two pairs of pants at Gucci.

But at a store where the price point hovers somewhere around, let’s say, $75, spending $2,000 in 15 minutes is not quite as easy. That takes skills, sister, and we applaud Jolie for hers.

What about you? How long do you think it would take you to pick out $2,000 worth of apparel from French Connection, or a store like it, and let’s just assume for argument’s sake that it wouldn’t make you vomit to spend $2,000 at once on clothes in the first place?

    Oh yeah. I could totally drop 2K in 15 minutes at JCrew. And I wouldn’t feel the least bit sick. In fact I’d feel as though I’d just accomplished something great. Italian cashmere…..mmmmmm…….

    I think of that store as being rather expensive I just checked their website, and their dresses range from $200-$450, so I don’t think its would be that hard to spend there.

    I think it would take me a lot longer at French Connection, but if it were at, say, Express or JCrew or Abercrombie, then yes, fifteen minutes sounds about right. You just do one of those: “I’ll take THAT wall, and THAT rack over there,” things.f

    French Connection is extremely popular in Europe–there are about a dozen in London, alone. And, as sara mentioned, their pricing isn’t exactly cheap. $75 is maybe the price for…a scarf? $2000 could be spent on as few as three garments. Ooooh, what skill, she bought a few dresses in fifteen minutes. This article is a bit unnecessary.
