Also Derek was generous enough to say that the topic could be anything, so I wondered whether to do my usual great prices/discount post or to do one of my list posts. Then I thought to myself I have not done one of those ‘most expensive‘ posts for a while (which basically tells us that a lot of people in the world have more money than they know what to do with) so maybe I should do one of those.
Now if you tell me that an expensive painting is a great investment and that my money would double in a few years, sure I’ll think about it, but a lot of paintings are valued insanely high: the Mona Lisa for instance, is estimated to be worth some $670 million!
But that is only an estimate if it were sold.
The highest price fetched by a painting is $149.7 million (that is an estimate of what the price would be today)!
The mind boggles!
If I had that kind of money would I spend it on what appears to be a birds’ nest? Well that was a rhetorical question.
The most expensive shoes now cost a staggering $2 million!
I know that every self respecting fashionista wants to be well shoed, but 2 mil, even if they are one-of-a-kind 4½-inch stiletto sandals studded with 565 platinum-set Kwiat diamonds (which include 55 carats of clear diamonds and one big 5-carat stone) designed by Stuart Weitzman?
Wish I had the money though!
Not Your Ordinary Bag
The other fashionista thing is the bag right?
Well plonk down a cool million for this bag made from platinum and studded with only 2000 diamonds.
Wouldn’t mind having it, but where would I go with it?!
Don’t Hold This Wine In A Paper Bag
That Chateau Lafite is the Rolls Royce of wines is a given; but to pay $160,000 for a bottle of 1787 wine?
You had better save it for a really special date; and who knows if it is even drinkable! I mean just look at the bottle.
A good pair of jeans can almost be like a good friend, but would you pay $85,000 for a pair?
Well a pair of jeans by Levi’s studded with gold, diamonds and rubies are worth that much! But again, where would I wear them?!
Vintage Or Dirty?
Now one source for good value for money graphic tees is here, which I recommend, but would I pay 13,000 bucks for a pre-owned T shirt?
(Did you notice it does not look very clean?)
In a word No!
You know what they say, money is the root of all evil today, well I would not mind a little of the evil 😉
What do you say?
