Daylight Robbery: Moschino heart brooch

Moschino-heart-brooch

How much do you think this is worth? Go on, have a guess. To help you, it's a brooch, it's 3.9" high, it's made of cloth, and even although The Fashion Police aren't exactly skilled with the old needle and thread, we reckon we could probably run one up for you if we had the right fabric.

So, what do you think? Couple of quid? Maybe £10/£20 if you're lucky?

Nah, it's £105. Yes, one hundred and five of our British pounds, or around $158. And here's why:

Moschino-label

 It's all about the label, isn't it? If only we'd gone into fashion design instead of joining the Police Academy that time. We could've been robbers rather than cops…

    And Moschino is not even a brand I’d pay for.

    Okay. That is RIDICULOUS. Bet people will buy it, though.

    I think I did things like those when I was… hm, 10?
    Seriously, what went through the designer’s head? “All fashionable women are just dying to have an acessorie that looks as if it was hand made by their infant!”
    Lovely. What’s next, 158 pounds for a paper cutout crown saying “Mommy”?

    That is absurd. What kind of idiot would pay for that in this economy, or any economy for that matter?

    You can’t even see the brand from the front!!!
    I wouldn’t pay 50cents for that. And thats 50 NZ cents, which is worth next to nothing… 🙂

    As a professional seamstress, I estimate the value of the time spent making one of those to be… $5. However, it doesn’t look impressive enough to be worth making.
