Ever heard of Ted Lapidus? Me neither. He's the French designer who custom made John Lennon's white suit for the Abbey Road album cover. The suit, along with other Beatles memorabilia, hit the auction block at the Braswell Galleries annual New Year's Day auction. An anonymous online bidder took the suit home, so to speak, for a mere $46,000.
Got me thinking about my most expensive clothing purchase. Certainly wasn't my wedding dress (I wore an off-the-rack number to our extremely low key affair). It might be my winter coat, retail price. But I got it end of season with major discounts and coupons. So, it has to be the Betsey Johnson designer dress I bought on a whim while on vacation many, many moons ago. What a splurge...but nowhere near $46,000, that's for sure!!
