in Pink Leather
(not the blue croc w/diamonds
model described in the ad)

However, there's always an exception to the rule -- and today, while doing research for an article, I stumbled upon the following and just had to share this. Not as criticism - it goes past that. Really.
This is just laughable: an online ad for a special deal (that's right, it's a bargain) on a Hermes bag, made of crocodile dyed blue and lots of little diamonds -- the "Queen of all Handbags," the reader is informed.
It's being sold for Two Hundred Eighty Thousand and No/100 Dollars ($280,000.00). I have written this sum in the way that we always did in our legal documentation back in my lawyer days just to make it clear that I really do mean 280,000 smackeroos.
Check out the ad here for the "Hermes Birkin Handbag 35cm Blue Sahphire Diamond Porosous Crocodile," which is available for shipping the next business day after purchase!!!
Example of Excess. Sure.
Good laugh, too. The next time I'm debating with myself whether or not to spend cash on a purse (because I am a sucker for purses and shoes), I may still be questioning the price. One thing's for sure, though: $280,000 is definitely too much for a purse.
What kind of person thinks this is acceptable? I really really wonder about that. Betcha Hermes doesn't ask too many questions, though. Hee Hee.
I'm still laughing.
