The Ricky

And this isn't the one that was married to Lucy. This is the one by Ralph Lauren.

A few years ago I asked how much it was and when the salesperson told me, I momentarily blacked out. I don't think I've regained consciousness yet.

And while we're on the topic of Ralph Lauren. It is NOT pronounced Lorrrren, with the accent on the last part of the name. It is pronounced Lauren. Like a woman's first name.

Thought you'd want to know.


  1. But... But... It's such a good deal! I mean, it's like HALF what the comparable Hermes bag is. What's the problem? And I know a couple of places here in Houston where you can get a Ralph Lauren, a Burberry, an Hermes and two Coach bags for under five hundred bucks. Of course, that's cash only, no returns and no guarantees. And you have to be willing to make your selection from the back of a 1989 Dodge van. But a deal's a deal - right?

  2. I think I will have to go with the smaller bag. Wow. It is pretty though.

    Having to click to find out the price was brilliant -- if you had told us during the actual blog, we wouldn't have had the suspense before we fell off our chairs.

    Isn't this kind of obscene when people are starving and dying in Iraq? Or is there no reason to relate these kinds of things (which I seem to do frequently) Oh well, I guess at least it gives the alligators jobs.

    Ooh, that's pretty!

  6. pomnot, yes it's obscene. That's why it costs so much.

    surcie, yeahhhhhhhhhhh.

  7. I work at a university where many of the students' families are wealthy. One young lady posted an item on the electronic "For Sale" board. She was advertising a pair of jeans that would cost a mere $800. She didn't like the design and so they must go! Laughter quickly turned to disgust. I can think of 800 better ways to spend $800.
