NoLita Recession Watch: Let Them Eat Caviar

Tonight the Mister and I showed some friends from out of town the sights in Little Italy. When I saw the following (which hails from Mott Street) I stopped dead in my tracks.

My god, WHO would buy— much less be seen in public— such a thing? Only a certifiable asshole would carry a handbag like this.

No one in our party saw fit to disagree with the aforementioned observation. Then I noticed another item of interest in same said window.

I guess there aren’t as many assholes in New York City as there used to be.

Who says the recession is necessarily a bad thing?

  2. Most of what the rich and famous find fashionable, I find vomitous. That is a good example.

Tell me what you're thinking...
