WAIT, THERE'S A RECESSION? Kim Kardashian Spends $100,000 On Hermes 'Birkin' Purses!

Posted Thu, September 16, 2010 9:59am EDT

Are you totally jealous or totally outraged at Kim K’s crazy shopping spree?

What on earth were Kim Kardashian, 29, and her mother Kris Jenner, 54, thinking?  The mother-daughter pair spent $100,000 Sept. 15 at the high-end Hermes boutique in Paris picking up SEVEN “Birkin” bags!

Sources say that the duo picked up 6 purses priced in the $10,000 range AND that Kim splurged one special crocodile-skin tote valued at $30,000!

Wow — I can’t even … Part of me says that this spending spree — which probably took place in a matter of minutes — was completely absurd, but I also have to admit that I’m completely jealous. After all, what girl doesn’t want a “Birkin” bag? But Kim had to have 7 — that’s INSANE!

I’ve got to say – I think these handbags are absolutely beautiful and I wish I had one. Kim Kardashian is a millionairess and I suppose if I had that much money and really loved a handbag, I’d do the same thing. BUT..I would donate some money to charity before buying myself one of these. C’mon..100k could do a lot for a lot of people who are less fortunate! I’m buying a replica Herme’s bag for $300 instead yo.

Don’t be jealous – feel bad for her. She actually has to BUY from Hermes. If she was the big star she thinks she is, Hermes would give them to her FREE for the publicity!

You think Madonna pays for everything she wears? No. Many key pieces are given to the top celebs (men included). Cheaper to give away stuff than to advertise – especially when you consider the designer/manufacturer only looses the COST PRICE of the item, not the retail price.

Poor Kim, this proves you can be rich and famous and STILL BE A LOSER!!!!

Actually, Hermes doesn’t give ANYONE anything, no matter who you are. I dont know if you heard, but a while back OPRAH was trying to shop at the same boutique but she was denied entrance. If they wont even let Oprah in to shop on her own, then gifting is not in their vocabulary.

If you’re going to spend that kind of money on a handbag…it ought to be remotely attractive. I’ll bet the designer of this bag is laughing all the way to the bank. How many purses have you seen that look just like this at Target? What makes this one so special? Oh well, can’t blame the designer if there’s an idiot out there that’ll fork over the cash!

That’s what rich people do. They only care about themselves.

What’s there to be jealous of? Birkin bags are ugly. I’d rather pay for a knockoff on Canal Street than waste $100,000 on an ugly bag that will go out of style in five minutes.

Why be mad at her? Why not be mad at a designer that is so narcissistic they think their design is actually worth $10,000. Let alone $30,000. No purse is worth that much money. I don’t care whose name is on it!! Put blame where it belongs! If we didn’t put so much emphasis on labels these purses would be at Belk for $50!

Disgusting, I wonder how many children are dying right now that could be fed with $100,000 dollars..I don’t see the wrong in buying one or two bags, yes, it’s they’re money but buying $100,000 worth of them is ridiculous…I am not jelous or looking for a handout but I do wonder how much they give to charity..

Who cares! Its her money! If you had that much money, you wouldnt care what other people thought of your spending habits either!! Are you people looking for a hand out?
