Nicole RichieNicole Richie raised eyebrows recently after she admitted to owning more than 200 pairs of sunglasses. The admission came during an interview with Teen Vogue.

"I view them as fun masks to accessorize your face," she said, adding that many of her purchases were made in order to research her own line of sunglasses.

Yeah, right, Nicole. So you have a thing for sunglasses. OWN IT.

Nicole has more money to spend than most of us, but I would argue that nearly every woman has a weakness for buying some form of clothing or accessories.

What's yours?

My biggest extravagance would probably be dresses. I LOVE DRESSES. I don't have much time to put outfits together, so I rely on a large selection of dresses to quickly get ready and look great.

Lately, I've also built up a little bit of a shoe collection. It's hard not to when you can get them so cheaply from places like Charlotte Russe and Forever 21.

My "collections" may run in the family. When my great grandmother (a popular preacher's wife) died years ago, her children found a surprisingly large number of hats carefully stored away in boxes up in her attic. She also had quite a few pairs of white gloves, which I have now. Her children thought it was so funny and sweet that even on her meager budget, she managed to fund her passion for pretty hats and gloves!

So now it's time for you to come clean ...  

What is your fashion extravagance, and what lengths have you gone to in order to have it?
