There's no denying that September issue season is an exciting time. Magazine staffers spend months putting them together, and there's always a palpable thrill in the air when they start showing up on newsstands. Even if we're not totally
crazy about the chosen covers
, the books are chock full on enviable fashion that feed our back-to-school desires
. But, have you ever really thought about where all those duds come from? From the one-of-a-kind couture, to the rag & bone denim and Vince sweaters touted as "affordable pieces," there's rarely a feature in a September issue that doesn't come with an oversized price sticker.
Just for kicks, the Huffington Post examined eight different 'zines and tallied up every single piece of clothing — and, the results will seriously shock you. If you shopped the entire Harper's Bazaar, this month's priciest book, you would spend almost $440,000
. Even if you stocked up on all of Cosmo
's duds, which keeps its prices comparatively low, it'll still cost you over $15,000. Up for even more shocks? The average price in this month's Vogue
rings up for a whopping $4,375. Looks like we'll be sticking with our meager list of 30 dream tickets
, for now. (HuffPostStyle
