Project Runway’s Nina Garcia left a lovely “Note from the 1%” for her Twitter followers on Thursday when she told them about a must-have bag that will any cost them 3 paychecks AT MOST. Because Nina said “this IS the bag” and said it would last you a lifetime, you expect the link to lead you to a vintage Lisa Frank bubblegum duffel bag. Right? Right. But instead, Nina Garcia led her followers to a leather bag that is more overpriced than the leather bag slobbering over it:
Maybe it’s because I don’t carry a purse (shut up), but do you really need to spend three weeks salary on ANY purse? Can’t you just grab a Hefty bag, roll it in glue and glitter, throw your shit in there and call it good? A Hefty bag covered in glitter is a lot hotter than most of the tired bags I’ve seen out there.
Nina’s tweet sort of reminds me of this episode of Beverly Hills Teens where that hot bitch Bianca goes shopping at a new mall she’s never been before. Bianca pulls up to a mall that is so tall it reaches the clouds and she says, “Oh, how cute, one of those new mini malls!”
And right after GOOPY Paltrow read Nina’s tweet, she said out loud, “A FEW weeks salary? As in more than two? I knew there were poor people out there, but I didn’t know they were THAT poor. What a world.” Because of Nina’s tweet, GOOPY is going to donate a few of the Birkins she keeps her recyclables in to the less fortunate. So Nina Garcia’s clueless tweet did some good. See!
