Poor, Poor Rich People

Over at The Washington Post, Barbara Ehrenreich feels terrible, just terrible about the problems of the super-rich, who can't dress the way they want to. She describes a New Yorker profile of Daphne Guinness

... who is apparently best known for wearing clothes, which she draws from a wardrobe of 2,500 garments, 450 pairs of shoes and 200 handbags. On the day she was interviewed, she wore ... "a pave diamond brooch," silver sheaths on two of her fingers and "custom-made sparkly silver Mary Janes, with a three inch platform under the toe" -- not the heel, the toe. Well, to each her own, but she might as well walk around Manhattan wearing a sign saying "My husband stole your pension."
