How much are you willing to pay for a gown or suit?
What is the most you would be willing to pay for a fancy gown or tailored suit? Where would you wear it to?
I guess it depends on where I'm going. I'm very frugal, though and can find low-cost versions of anything. I'm going to a networking event tomorrow in a $13 dress (that looks like a $50 one I saw in a window one day). It's not a gown, though. I would say, for a gown, maybe $50-75.
A SUIT, however, especially a tailored one - I think that would at least cost a few hundred. I'm not sure you can really get away with a cheaper version of that.
I think it's nice to own one perfect suit. You will wear it to weddings, funerals, and job interviews if nowhere else. But one can get away without a suit. In our Texas cities, no one wears a suit every day to work except lawyers or politicians. The blue blazer is the true staple to a man's wardrobe. In a more practical sense, I didn't scrimp and bought a very expensive blue blazer, which can be correctly worn with a tie and gray worsted wool dress pants in place of a suit. It can also be worn casually with a t-shirt and jeans. The matching coat and pants of a suit looks a little stuffy; while with the blazer, you can add a different-colored waistcoat and different-colored pants that will look much better and less formal (while still being dressy).
A tailored suit correctly made of worsted wool and lined in silk should typically cost anywhere between $500 and $1,200.
It depends on where I'm going but I have spent over $600 for a full length gown. I would wear it to a fundraiser or dinner for networking. If I'm trying to make a good first impression on something I'm trying to sell, like my work or meet people that can propel me forward, I have deep pockets because I consider that an investment in my career.

My dog Molly was rushed to Emergency Vet this AM. She suffered a stroke, but her prognosis is good, I am going to spend whatever it takes as long as she has a chance at a good quality of life.

About how much does health care (insurance, out of pocket expenses, prescriptions, fees, taxes, etc.) cost you each month? Is it worth it? How much more would you pay?

Just wondering how much you would be willing to pay for your child's art classes - and say the cost included supplies. What reasons might you be willing to pay more? Also, for the amount you say you are willing to pay, how long do you expect each class to be and how many classes? Please be...
