"People think we own all these dresses but we borrow them!" Hudson told the mag. "I can’t afford to buy that stuff. There are certain things I splurge on, but it’s very rare, especially when you have two kids and school tuition."
"I’m not a big high-end fashion shopper," she went on to say. "I wish I could but the truth is things are just so expensive. Before Isabel Marant was a million dollars and famous, I used to go to her store in Paris and go crazy, it was so affordable.”
While it's a little hard to imagine that the average American woman would have ever found Isabel Marant "affordable," the French designer is about to launch a budget line for H&M.
Hudson credited her famous mother, Goldie Hawn, with her semi-thrifty sensibilities.
"My mom wasn't a big shopper for us," she said. "I think they wanted to instill that in us even though we grew up in a really privileged and lucky lifestyle."
