The $210,000 Clutch

Fashion has officially stunned me again, or rather shall I say a price tag. I thought the Dolce & Gabbana $170,000 gown was a shocker (read my post from 9/27) but that was before my eyes fell upon this embossed white-gold Louis Vuitton clutch for $210,000. Sorry, I need to repeat that price tag - $210,000. I understand that the thing, and yes I am going to call it a thing, is white-gold but do we really need to carry around a real gold clutch? I think this clutch would look just as good if it was silver plated. So much for leaving your purse on the table while you dance. I think I would have it cuffed to my wrist, but then again I would never ever walk around with a $210,000 clutch anyway.
