This little McQueen minaudiere is seriously amazing!
(Image WWD.  Nice nails, too!)

I absolutely LOVE the bird brass knuckles.  Someone in Etsy-world, please create bird brass knuckles for me.  

That said, this weekend our refrigerator crapped out and we had to buy a new one.  We certainly didn't buy the most expensive one, but we ended up with something that looks like this: 

The total cost for this fridge was definitely a lot less than the minaudiere.  In fact, it was cheaper than any of these new arrivals at Bergdorf:
(Alexander McQueen, YSL, Miu Miu)

(Givenchy, Valentino, Louboutin.  Okay, the Givenchy printed tote is slightly cheaper than the fridge, but it deserves inclusion due to its kick-ass-ness)

As a former accessories designer, I understand what makes bags so expensive.  Unlike many modern things, handbags are still largely made by hand.  Even that $59.99 Jessica Simpson purse you picked up at Macy's was probably stitched together by a (young) skilled craftsman (in China).

That said, I just wonder if you asked one of the indigenous uncontacted gas-beings of Jupiter, what costs more, this steel robot that creates cold air and ice cubes, or that small sack, what s/he/it would say.  Maybe the sack, who knows?  Maybe art does trump function.

Seriously internets, bird brass knuckles.  NOW. 

Have a great week everyone!
