Kim Kardashian's Latest Purchase Shows She Has Too Much Money

72

kim kardashianPerhaps it was retail therapy, or perhaps it was because she loves spending money on "stuff." Kim Kardashian helped contribute to the $116 million profit that was made from the sale of Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry, reportedly dropping $64,900 on three white gold and diamond bangle bracelets. Good for her. She should treat herself for once. But the thing about the bracelets is ... they're kind of heinous.

There just isn't anything special about them -- aside from the fact that they were Liz Taylor's. The white one is okay, but the other two look like they could have been purchased at a Claire's. A waste of 65 grand if you ask me. Then again, I feel that way about most "celebrity purchases."

Now, when I say "celebrity purchases," I'm not talking about "purchases made by celebrities." I mean, yeah, some of those are ridiculous, but you best believe if I had Gwyneth Paltrow's money, I'd be spending it on elixirs, massages, and weekend ashram retreats. I'm talking about the people -- celebs or not -- who spend money on celebrity items. No doubt there were some unbelievable pieces of jewelry at the Elizabeth Taylor sale, but, I think nine times out of 10, people are just buying these things so they can say it belonged to "so-and-so."

Did Kim really need to spend that much money on a set of bangle bracelets? First of all, I'm sure there was much nicer jewelry at the sale (I.E., way too expensive), and second of all, Kim could get a much nicer piece of jewelry for that price elsewhere. That's a lot of cash just to say "These were Liz Taylor's bracelets." I'm just not seeing the logic.

I guess when you've got money like Kimmy, though, you need to spend it on something new. It probably gets boring shopping at the same places over and over and over again. I can't imagine it's easy. I give her credit.

Do you think the bracelets were worth $64,900?

If you hate her so much then STOP TALKING ABOUT HER! At least the money that she spent went to charity. If I had the money I would buy something from my idol too, no matter how tacky. I'm sure she's not the only celebrity that dropped down a pretty penny on things that where Elizabeth's. Why aren't you talking crap about them? Oh, it's because she's a Kardashian. Writing articles that blast celebrities (no matter who they are) is just tacky. Especially when the money, that you think is too much, goes to charity.

Didn't the proceeds go to charity? Maybe Kim Humphries figured she could do something good while picking up a cool souvenir. Liz Taylor is an icon and if I had the kind of money that Kim Humphries has I'd buy something too.

My guess is that Kim is a big fan of Elizabeth Taylor. Her sister were always comparing her to Elizabeth (how she falls in love easily) on the show and that could be why she bought them.

It's her money and she can spend it on whatever she wants. Why do people always care about what others buy? Even in the "normal world" you get people who comment about what others buy because they see the purchases as a waste of money. Who gets to decide? Should  people w/money to spend give all of their money away or take people off the street on shopping sprees simply because hey, they have the money and they owe it to the "little people" to share the wealth? It's annoying. Let it go. The bracelets are lovely and if I HAD $65,000 to spnd on 3 bracelets, I would.

I've seen other pieces of Liz's jewelry I'd rather have had. And I'm starstruck enough to wish I could own a piece of her jewelry.
