Kim Kardashian Drops 100k on Purses

Kim KardashianSpotted: a voluptuous E! star and her mother trotting through the streets of Paris in an attempt to out-do S and B’s shopping spree on this week’s Gossip Girl premiere. That’s right, Kim Kardashian is rollin’ in it, and she wants everyone to know.

Kim and her mother, Kris Jenner, stopped by the fashion capital’s Hermes boutique and ran up a tab of over $100,000. It would seem that the Kardashian family isn’t having any trouble keeping up.

And the former Reggie Bush flame was buying just any designer bags. Nope. All that dough and the mother-daughter duo stacked up only 7 bags. How? Kim and Kris walked out with a slew of the sacred “Birkin” bags, retailing for $10,000 a piece. (That’s enough to buy 9 or 10 of Marc Jacobs’ latest bags, for those of you who can’t do fashion math.) Even Sex and The City’s hotshot Samantha Jones couldn’t get her hands on a single Birkin without shamelessly dropping names (and a few little lies) – after all, “It’s not a bag, it’s a fucking Birkin!”

But it still doesn’t add up. How did they cross $100,000 finish line? Leave it to Kim’s crowning glory – an extremely rare, crocodile-skin Birkin with a hefty price tag: $30,000. For that kind of cash, you’d think the bag would come with its own matching pet crocodile. But, I guess it’s no problem when your claim to fame (and fortune) is being a part of one of L.A.’s wealthiest families. Oh, there’s, like, a recession? What’s that?

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
