Some ‘Fashion’ Designer is Selling a $1,300 ‘Taco Purse’

Taquera zip round taco shaped clutch [LOL]
Some people just want to see the world burn –and annoy the hell out of this blogger.

Take Italian designer Charlotte Olympia, which is peddling a $1,300 taco purse, a taco-shaped thing “embellished with Swarovski crystals and embroidered silk organza.”

I don’t know you, but $1,300 amounts to about $20,000 Mexican pesos (per today’s exchange rate,) which would be good enough to get you approximately 800 of these.

YES, eight-hundred!

Won't you rather have 800 of these?

A no brainer, my friends.

Oh, and don’t get me started on the burrito bag, please.

  1. I don’t know where you’re buying your tacos, but in a standard puesto around Queretaro (or Mexico), a taco goes for about 7 or 8 pesos, so, 50 cents. Tacos de canasta run 3 or 4 for 10 pesos….so, what I’m sayin’ is that $1300 would get you 2500, 2600 regular tacos, or 8000 tacos de canasta. Proving your point.
