The Olsen Twin’s $39,000 Backpack Is Sold Out


I don't judge how people spend their money as I’ve often spend money on ridiculous things such as overpriced craft fair tickets at the US Ambassador’s house just so I can say that I’ve used their bathroom. But what type of people would buy the Olsen Twin’s $39,000 handbag and so much that it is sold out during time of recession?! As WWD reports:

Ashley Olsen said the label was rushing to keep up with demand for its much-publicized alligator backpack, which comes with an eye-watering $39,000 price tag. “It was the first thing that sold off the shelf,” she said, noting that extreme luxury tends to perform well during uncertain economic times. 


$39,000 for some creature hanging around since the dinosaur times that even the ice age couldn’t get rid of? At least spend $39,000 on a Hermes limited trick, or on something totally exotic like a bag made of baby albino dolphin skinned under a lunar eclipse by a Rastafarian.

And if you really want a bag designed by MK and Ashley you could have gotten one for $20 when they had their line at Zellers, damn that inflation’s a bitch. Below are some pictures of the Olsen's luxury bag line via Refinery 29.

    I really marvel at your razor sharp wit and for taking a dig at things in such a humorous way that the people being dissed can't really get too upset about it.

  4. I can't help but be disgusted by that amount people will spend. Gosh, it's must be nice to be in the top 1%. I think that's why people are going crazy towards Wall Street.

  5. I do like their bags, but the prices are definitely insane. I wonder how many they produced.

  6. So expensive. It'd be generous to donate the money to the poor.

  7. LOL That's crazy! They're pretty, but not worth that exorbitant amount. Buy a nice fake one and call it a day. Hermes/Birkin will ALWAYS definitely stand out. I don't see anyone saying, "Oh, that's an Olsen bag you're carrying!" HAHAHA

  15. I could find several ways to spend $39,000 and buying an Olsen Twin backpack isn't high on the list.

  16. Hahahahaha I love your comebacks.

    This bag is totally ridiculous! That's like a year of college in the States--at a private school. I don't even think my parents spent that on a car, maybe even two...

    Stinkin' rich people.

  19. LOL, Jo's right, you're very funny. =)

    Using the Ambassador's bathroom is cool. That was a much better investment than a $39k
    bag BY THE OLSEN TWINS!!! I'd rather have the gator. There are lots of things I would rather
    spend that money on...like a blogger party at your house! =)

  21. I find the bags quite pretty, but a price tag of 39,000 dollar is madness!

  26. $39,000. Wow. Clearly I'm not the Olsens' target demographic lol.

    ReplyDelete
  27. well, bags are nice, but even if i would have that money i wouldn't buy it because it was used alligator on it :/

    ReplyDelete
  28. The bags are just bags.... And they are from the Olsens, I mean... A Birkin is a Birkin. I think people just likes to spend money in extravagant stuff maybe to feel better with themselves. I don't know...
