Did you catch Ceelo’s watch on The Voice last night? All gold, yellow diamond-crusted face, gigantic and uuuugly! Must weigh a ton and cost at least a VP’s year’s salary.
Excessive is an understatement.
Dolce & Gabbana released a line of limited edition styles with 18 karat hold accents. Subsequently these frames are $595.
I don’t know about you, but I’d rather pay $395 for gold plate wrapped in plastic. ($195 is more like it, but that’s another issue).
So even though these Dolces are elegant, my vote is excessive.
These glasses bring up another issue for me as well. I haven’t seen anything new or interesting in the sunglasses market. I’m bored of my favorite (wait, second favorite) accessory! I guess that’s why there is a need and consumption for real gold accents.
On the bright side, I can wear my current collection and save about $700 a year. :)Tweet this!
