Then: Spending more than $35 for a dress was a sin. I don't know what Shawn's limit for clothes because he never bought any.
Now: I have no problem spending $70 on a clothing item I really want. Shawn's still cheap - he'll only buy jeans on black friday.
Then: I will never, ever, not in a million years, ever want to own Prada shoes.
Now: O mah gawd! I love these shoes! $600 is a bit steep...but someday I'll own you my pretties.
Then: $150 suit from Men's Warehouse and suit separates found at the Goodwill Store
Now: Custom tailored suits from Louis Bespoke
