(Newser) – Katie Holmes is indulging in some hardcore retail therapy following her split from Tom Cruise—and the "closet's worth" of new clothes she has reportedly purchased includes $14,200 worth of lingerie, Australia's News Network reports by way of the National Enquirer. "She also bought 15 pairs of pricey Christian Louboutin shoes and went on a tear at Barneys New York department store, buying a closet's worth of clingy cocktail dresses and power suits to wear to auditions and meetings," says a source, adding that Holmes also hired a $9,500-per-month personal trainer.

Earlier this week, Holmes moved her stuff out of the Beverly Hills home she and Cruise once shared, Radar reports. Tom is keeping that mansion, while Katie gets the one in Montecito. Things are apparently amicable enough between the former couple: Sources say they're planning to take Suri to her first day of school together.

No girl in serious retail therapy buys only Christian Louboutin shoes. She's warming up for Fendi, Casadei, Skovgaard, YSL, D&G, etc. shoes. Katie will need an entire bedroom to house her new shoe collection. She's definitely moving on & stimulating the New York economy.
