...and donate $55,000 to charity, the IRS gets suspicious.  Even if it's all clothes, and even if you raise "impulse shopping" as your defense:

Petitioner describes herself as an “impulsive buyer” whose annual expenditures for clothing and shoes might be deemed by some to be rather extravagant.  Furthermore, it appears that her wardrobe is constantly changing.

Petitioner gets points in my mind for having the gall to try this.
