The one million Euro dress

Posted Tue, Jan 12, 2010

Winter scarf Who hasn’t spent money on something dumb. Whether it’s that outfit that looked great on the rack (but, in retrospect, not so great on your rack), or the pair of shoes that looks amazing on your feet but you can’t walk in them (no, I haven’t done that at all), everyone has regretted a fashion choice.

But here’s one could possibly be the silliest thing ever. A UK man won two million Euros in the lottery — that’s three million Canadian dollars — and gave half of it to his daughter. The daughter took her share — that’s 1.5 million Canadian dollars — and stitched every single Euro into the dress

Apart from the fact that the dress is, (let’s face it) not the nicest looking dress, what happens when she’s bored of it? Can she take those bills off and take them to the bank? I asked our finance editor, who, after looking at me strangely, said that it would be up to the bank to decide on whether to accept the money. But he did say that retailers would be within their rights not to accept extremely damaged bills. 

It just seems that in a time when we’re only now coming out of a recession and companies are deliberating throwing away clothes the one million euro could have been spent in a much better way.

I’m pretty sure that this is a big joke or a publicity stunt.

What you think of the dress? And if you won the lottery, how would you spend the money?

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.
