Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's high fashion line, The Row, has created 12 limited-edition black patent crocodile leather backpacks (covered with prescription pills) that are going for the crazy, over-the-top price of $55,000 APIECE! At this moment, I'm guessing that like me, you're rubbing your eyes in disbelief...

The sister duo has teamed up with artist Damien Hirst on this fashion/art project, according to Refinery29. You can check out a video of all 12 bags (and no, at that price they are even not diamond encrusted).

Those little bitches need to be drop kicked in the **** just for the fact that they are both to rich for doing nothing in their lives. As far as I'm concerned you can lock those two little bitches away for the rest of their lives and nobody would miss them.

And they always have the same weird look on their faces, the same parted down the middle, flat,  boring hair.  Nobody thinks their sexy, so stop with the close, face to face photos, with the wide eyed,  deer in the headlights look.  How can they be fashson designers, have you seen the clothes they wear?  Wow.

why wouldn't they use their ill-gotten riches for something good in the world besides an obnoxious handbag.!!!  Some people are just so shallow and egocentric.. They were ugly twins as little girls and have gotten even uglier with their greedy, snobbish personalities. Too bad people like that have to exist in our world.

    The 20 best ankle boots for fall

    We’re just going to say it: Ankle boots might be are our favorite type of boots. They’re tough like classic motos when paired with skinny jeans or leather pants.

Never mind that booties take up way less room in your closet too. Wait. Do you know what that means?

    20 fashion moments every kid of the ’90s will remember rocking their world

    Even though the ’90s and early aughts seem rather far off now that those of us who grew up then have graduated to full-on careers, families, and investment bags, I’m here to let you know: get millennials started talking about the style moments and must-buys that peppered their history and you can’t shut them up. When we had the chance to play around with some of Coach’s new fall bags, it managed to bring up a group-wide memory of living for the brand’s wristlets, circa freshman year of college.

    How to look good in a selfie

    We’re living in the age of the selfie. This year, the word was officially added to the dictionary (we even got variations, like “belfie”—we’ll let you Google that one); the entire Obama family got in on the act; and a major TV network added a show called Selfie to its fall lineup. Oh, and you didn’t even have to watch this year’s Oscars to know that the biggest winner of all was not a film, but in fact the selfie. So it’s about time you learn how to take a really, really good one.
