Emily’s annual outgoings and income revealed

Rent  $33,127
Utilities  $2,372 
Shopping  $76,795
Transport (taxis)  $2,947

Emily’s most expensive habit is no doubt her wardrobe. Based on the high price tags of the glamorous clothes viewers have seen the fashionista flaunting around in, she’s estimated to have spent a whopping $76,795 on clothes and accessories every year. 

From Prada to Valentino, to Christian Louboutin, and Balmain, the marketing strategist has a countless number of designer clothing in her closet, but her most expensive is the Vassilis Zoulias yellow jacket she is seen wearing in the fourth episode of season two – which comes at an eye-watering $53,987.

And if you thought she’d cut down on her other spending to save for all those designer clothes, think again. 

Emily splurges on her apartment too – which is no surprise considering it’s located near the Pantheon, which is one of Paris’s major attractions. 

She pays $33,127 annually for rent, which leaves her with just $13,853 leftover for the rest of the year to cover her other expenses. 

Utilities are yet another expense, and Emily spends a total of $2,372 a year – which means there isn’t much leftover for spending money – but the American expat doesn’t cut back there.

Since Paris is known for its fine dining, we can’t blame Emily for indulging in a croissant or two every now and then, but it proves that the cappuccinos and pastries add up as she spends around $228 in coffee alone and $3,239 a year in food – making it her third most expensive habit. 

Her nightlife is another costly hobby that sees her sipping on cocktails and spending an estimated $1,295 a year. 

And since the marketing executive got lost using the Metro, she now relies upon taxis to get her to and from her favorite spots in the city – costing her around $2,947 a year. 

In total, the fashionista spends $120,006 a year to maintain her lavish lifestyle – which is a whopping $73,025 over her annual income. 

Although fans may be dying to live like the fashionista, the heart-wrenching reality is that the show offers a glimpse at the unattainable lifestyle she lives – that is unless you’re a millionaire. 

And while the pricey total may leave jaws dropped, a spokesperson for New Casinos says it comes with a light reminder: ‘When it comes to our favorite fiction TV shows, we sometimes have to remind ourselves that it isn’t a reality.

‘Emily in Paris is a show in which extravagance is at the core but it’s interesting to see just how unrealistic the luxurious living of Emily is. 

‘The findings are a friendly reminder that her lifestyle isn’t exactly one to admire, given that her salary doesn’t cover half of her spending.’

In September, Netflix unveiled the much anticipated teaser for season three of the hit TV show that will surely hit the top 10 TV shows when it’s released in just two weeks and will follow Emily around Paris while she makes life-changing decisions about both her love life and her career. 

In the past, Victoria Petersen, an American woman lifted the lid on what it was like to live in Paris

After settling into her new lifestyle in the city of love, Victoria began documenting her daily activities on her blog, called French Girl Daily, and posting photos to her Instagram account – where it quickly took off. 

Now, with nearly 250,000 followers, the blog is described as a ‘digital destination for women who love French style, beauty, and culture.’

Through the blog, Victoria shows off common French fashion trends and shares beauty tips and makeup hacks that she’s learned from living in Paris. 

But to see Paris through the eyes of a marketing executive stuck in a love triangle, you’ll have to tune into to Netflix in just two weeks.
