Sometimes we wonder if the recession is winding down when someone bids $42,500 for a one week internship at the offices of Vogue Magazine. A lucky bidder bid exactly that amount to become Anna Wintour's new "Emily." The internship also does include a fashion show attendance, a $1,000 gift certificate to Christian Louboutin, a PS1 bag from Proenza Schouler, and a Duffel bag from Alexander Wang. But among those perks we are sure there will be lots of coffee runs to make, and possibly a run to the Hermes boutique on Madison Avenue to pick up a few scarves (assuming a taxicab does not hit the new "Emily.") The money from this bid is going to a good cause, namely, the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.
But what else can a depraved mind do with $42,500, which by the way is equivalent to the tuition for a year at NYU? Here are
+ One Hermes Birkin 30 Matte Fauve bag (worth $41,750 on ebay)
+ Two nights in the Royal Suite of the Burj-al-Arab hotel in Dubai (worth $18,000 a night) with some leftover cash for high-end shopping.
+ Three Cartier Roadster large model wristwatches (valued at $12,450 a piece.) with some leftover cash for any miscellaneous expenses.
What ever the case, spend (or save) the money wisely. ^_^
