WTF!!!

OK, just go with me here...I'm gonna rant, but it is totally justified...You know I was in Vail last week, right? Well, I saw this just awful girl b*tching about how there was to much snow so she didn't want to ski (whatever, *rolling eyes*). Yes, she was a dreadful person, but she was wearing the coolest ski jacket I had ever seen. So the bro and I stalked her until we could see the logo on the coat. It was an R looking K, what logo is that? Then I started seeing various colors of this fabu coat all over the mountain. Turns out it's the collection from cutie patootie euro skier Lasse Kjus, hence the name Kjus (pronounced ch-jus). I go online...brace yourselves...how much...any guesses? I'm tellin' you, brace yourselves..........$899.00!!! WTF, that is crazy money for a ski jacket, just crazy! Even if I had it, I couldn't bring myself to spend it on a ski jacket, I'm not crazy! I did go to the ritzy ditzy ski shop and try it on (in case any of you are wondering, I fit the 6). So now I am just p*ssed and ranting:( I want this coat, I even checked ebay...no go. Alas, no $899.00 ski jacket for the Warden, boo hiss! So change my mind...tell me why this coat sucks so I don't want it any more...

  1. Holy Crap! That's an expensive jacket. .. ok.. that jacket sucks eggs because that snotty idiot girl was wearing one and you don't want to wear something that snotty idiots wear.
    Does that work?

  3. If I spent that kind of money on a ski jacket, it better snow like it has never snowed before, and I had better get to ski 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for like the next 15 years.

  4. OKay for that money it better be heating you, feeding you, and I say doing the skiing too.

    Seriously who wants to be a fashion plate....no, no yu don't stop that, I see that look in your eyes....you don't want the coat, seriously.

    I've done my best!

  5. So this girl who hates the snow and doesn't ski is wearing a $900 ski jacket?
    You should just steal hers! It would be totally justified. In fact, I'm sure Lasse Kjus would insist that you took it and used it for what it is intended!

  6. You totally crack me up.. You stalked her to see the logo.. I would have loved to be a fly in the wall watching that.. Amazing that the best things are always ridiculously priced!

  7. That is a great coat. Rsally nice looking!! I see why you drool and are pissed at the price.

    Ya know, if I lived in Vail and was on the slopes all the time (like nearly daily) I would consider it. However, most of us do not ski multiple times a week.

    Maybe someone online will put them on clearance at the end of the season. Worth checking out!

  8. That is freaking crazy....I would have to wear it every freaking day of the year to justify spending that much money on a coat. Yowza!

  9. Girl, reason with yourself! You could buy a complete ski outfit elsewhere, and still have money leftover for Starbucks when you're off the slopes. Trust me, she probably has no other money and lives in a trailer.

    There.

  10. Yeah, that's crazy!
    I wouldn't dream of spending that much of a jacket!

  11. I am not even close to being in a league that can afford that jacket. But have to say that I do love it and can completely understand why you would covet it so!

    ReplyDelete
  12. That is outrageous! You have babies to feed! Summer clothes to buy! You cannot spend $900 on a ski jacket. Do you ski, like, everyday?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Every time you would wear that you would channel the not nice girl (no cussing in Lent is killer) and that would make you despise it. You don't want HER jacket.

  14. That is EXACTLY why you cannot people watch in Vail . . . everything they have on could be sold one item at a time (USED, no less) and pay my mortgage for 6 months. Did she have the requisite Vail footwear on? You know, the animal-skin, fur lined, can't-possibly-step-in-the-snow-with-them-on boots? And, you chose a great week to come out here - I cannot believe how much snow is being dumped on the mountains right now!

  15. too funny about the stalking!!

    you don't want it because summer is right around the corner and you have new summer clothes to buy!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Maybe if you wear a 899.00 jacket it turns you into a B**CH !!
    I have to admit it is a great looking jacket.

  17. I'm in the land of expensive winter coats... Mine was marked 550$ but got it off season. ;)

  18. I've driven cars that cost less than that jacket. YIKES!

    ReplyDelete
  19. You don't need that jacket because....children are starving in Africa.

    ReplyDelete
  20. It sucks because that is what my very first car cost. It wasn't pretty but it worked. Too much for a ski jacket, NW!

  21. Schedule yourself a return trip in late June and early July and go to Pepi Sports (in Vail village) on their 60%+ off sale. I have used that formula to get myself the most cutie patootie ski jacket that is tooooooo diiiiiieee fooooorrr! And it is even more fun if you can really ski. No one expects a girl in a cutie patootie jacket to actually ski.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hmmmm. It sucks because it highlights the elbows. There are much better upper-body parts to be highlighted.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Is there a gold plated zipper on it??? WTH!!???

    You could probably pay for an entire sky trip for that price!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sheesh!
    I would say that it is a sucky jacket simply because it was worn by annoying bitchy girl and who wants to wear the same thing as annoying bitchy girl? Not me!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm the one that goes to cold places and bring a light cardigan. I've never been skiing, so I would have NO clue what to wear. But $900 on a jacket? What the fudge?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Jackets like that are only for people who want to LOOK like they ski--not for the real skiers. Real skiers who would rather spend it on a lift ticket, a trip to the mountains upon the arrival of a last minute helping of new powder, or on lessons for their little ones so they can be as kickin' as mom is on the slopes. This jacket is a showpiece. This jacket is a wannabe that simply is a wanna NOT. Does that help?

  27. That is A LOT of money. Especially when you convert it to rupiahs....8,273,958.83. Thats approximately 4 months wages for my driver here.

  28. Its awful, just awful!!! You will look much better in a bikini, honey. Wait for summer...*smile*

    ReplyDelete
  29. WTF is right! How in the world do people spend that much on a ski jacket? I mean really how often are you going use it? I am heading to the slopes this weekend so I will be on the look out for this ski jacket!

    ReplyDelete
  30. you don't want it because you could get way cute clothes, for the cost of one of those jackets...which, would be way more practical...seeing as ski season is only a few months out of the year...
    go buy yourself a new wardrobe...or a really nice purse...or...for that kind of money...go on a vacation, by yourself, to a spa!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. That is a ridiculous amount for any coat...skiing or other...it is cute though :)

    I have a new feature I am starting over at the nest, please come check it out!

  32. Holy shit! It'd have to have solid gold zippers before it'd be worth that kind of money.

    But it is a sweet looking jacket.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I've seen your name around a few places and figured it was time I paid a visit.

    Ok, that jacket sucks the big biscuit because think of how little sticky, spew-y faces and fingers could really wreck it.

    You should have taken a pic of yourself wearing it and then you could at least pretend to yourself that you bought it.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Does it come with a lifetime guarantee b/c holy crap! That's insane.

    900 bucks could buy so many groceries for your sweet little babies. (Hey, guilt trips ALWAYS work on me...I'm tryin' here.)

  35. The Lasse Kjus Formula Jacket is a great jacket. Technically it's the best jacket I've ever had. This jacket keeps you really warm, is lightweight and stretchable. I think that even when I'm lost in the snowy mountains I really will survive with this jacket and in that case I find that it's worth it to pay that stupid high price.
    But there is still hope for all the girls who want to have this great and good looking jacket but don't want to spend that much money: Search the internet and buy it for a sale price.
    I've found this jacket on the internet for a sale price of $390 (in summertime). Ok that's still a lot of money but when you are the hole season in the snow like me it's really worth it. Even when you are a fanatic skier for 1 or 2 weeks a year I should buy this jacket (for a sale price).
    Anyway, what kind of jacket you want to wear in the snow don't forget the most important thing: HAVE FUN!!!
