Gee it's not enough that Rumi Neely is extremely stylish, but she has to own both etoile Isabel Marant knit sweaters. It's people like her that make me so desperate and needy for money to revamp my wardrobe. Then I sound like a greedy monster before my boyfriend, my mother (or some television ad) remind me that I'm actually quite fortunate to have such luxuries and could use the 'wasted' money to save up for something. See that's the thing - fashion is an industry created out of 'wants' and desires, to look good in front of others and to be better or own more than everyone else. It's kind of terrible when you think about it, women spending a tonne of money on designer handbags or shoes when there are people in third world countries dying of starvation. And yet we still love it all the same and it's a market that has been thriving and constantly growing for decades.

So after that little guilt trip thinking about your last big splurge and all the other things you could have done with that money, here's some more pictures of that 'it' sweater we're all lusting over.
