Gwynnie and the $90 Tee
Everyone loves to hate on Gwyneth Paltrow, and I for one don’t get it. She’s gorgeous, cultured, intelligent and married to one of the biggest rockstars on the planet.
However, it is her website GOOP.com that has caused her to take some heat for what many call a holier-than-thou approach to lifestyle.It offers her favourite recipes, activities, books and a general philosophy on life that I personally can get down with.
Others it seems, not so much.
A recent re-vamp of the site has lead her (or her team rather) to expand to something called the Goop Collection. Every week Gwyneth will be collaborating with a different design house to bring you clothing, household items and beauty products and then selling them on her site. The first item up for grabs is a $90 dollar plain white tee made in one size fits all. Trying to build a case for Gwynnie, I went to the product details… it MUST be made of silk right? Nope, just modal (read: rayon), and that one size fits all? Actually just sizes 0-8.
So the question, I suppose is…would you buy it?
