There is something awfully wrong when a $38,000 handbag that probably cost pennies to make is seen as a discretionary expense.
That is more than what millions upon millions of Americans make in a YEAR.
And the bag in question?
The item at the center of the Winfrey dispute was reportedly a Tom Ford Jennifer bag — named for Jennifer Aniston, a fan of the American designer. The version on sale at Zurich’s Trois Pommes was one of the higher-end models, priced at 35,000 Swiss francs ($38,000).
You can buy a cheapie version at Neiman Marcus for a bit under $3,000.
