7 year old Piper Palin has a Louis Vuitton bag and I don't. And that just makes me want to throw up. I don't like to give a 7 year old a hard time and I don't even like Louis Vuitton bags that much, but where's the intervention here!?
Little Piper was spotted earlier this week carrying a Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Montorgueil PM , which goes for $790. Notice the jumbo McD's. Maybe the Palin family is justifying their apparel purchases by cutting back their food budget.
It's my understanding that the Palin family has been on a few shopping sprees and I'm not going to criticize Sarah Palin's wardrobe (hey, she has to keep up with Cindy McCain right?) But I think a Louis Vuitton for a 7 year old is a little much. I don't think Joe Six-Pack would buy a $790 bag for his daughter, but maybe Palin and I just disagree on our definition of middle class.
(In case you missed earlier headlines this week, according to Politico.com, The Republican National Committee has spent more than $150,000 to clothe and accessorize the Palin family. Since early September, the family has racked up bills from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York for a combined $49,425.74. Records also document a couple of big-time shopping trips to Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, including one $75,062.63 spree).
Hm. I would like the address and a Google map please of the Goodwill where these clothes will be donated. I'll snab the LV for myself and sell off the rest on Ebay.
