It’s rare that I see Kim Kardashian, she of the six-figure Hermes shopping sprees and head-to-toe designer looks, carrying a bag or wearing a pair of shoes that I can’t identify immediately. Love her or hate her, Kim’s look is one that requires the latest and greatest of everything, and because she’s photographed so incessantly, it seems as though designers are more than happy to stock her closet with flashy, expensive things that they hope to see talked about as a result of her patronage.
I’m not sure if that’s how Kim ended up carrying the $78 faux leather Olivia + Joy Tycoon Flap Bag or if she saw it in a store and bought it herself like a normal person, but if I were a betting woman, I’d bet it’s the former. Either way, it’s kind of baffling to see a star who’s known for her excessive wardrobe carrying something so inexpensive and accessible. Do you like it when stars mix up their price points, or would you prefer if they stuck to fantasy items so that we can all lust after their collections?
