You have GOT to be kidding me!


Here's the latest piece of proof that the fashion industry is just having us all on.
Pictured to the left is the Tribute Patchwork Bag from Louis Vuitton. It is made from 15 cut up LV bags, and retails for somewhere between $42,000 and $45,000. Not kidding. At all. Not funny. At all.

This is, by far, the ugliest piece of "fashion" that I have ever seen. And I watch Project Runway.

It's not only ugly on a visual level, but in my eyes, on a moral level. That kind of money could probably feed a small family for a year, and some rich "person" is going to carry it ONCE, and then put it into the closet, next to the hundreds of other purses they never use. Also, it just serves to perpetuate the fashion industry's hold on what they can get away with. This bag says they can get away with anything, and sell anything, and that some poor (rich) deluded sucker will pay them through the nose to insult our collective common sense.
I'm not against fashion, just against the people who are so stupid that they not only fall for a bad, cruel joke that is getting played on them, but they pay anything they are told to, to have that joke played on them.
