My 4 1/2″-long Cleopatra earrings — worn by Kim Cattrall’s character Samantha in Sex and the City 2 — are in the Thursday Styles section of the New York Times today! If you get the paper version of the newspaper, go to Stephanie Rosenbloom’s Scavenger column on page E3. If you’re online only, click here.
If you’re overwhelmed by those two options, you can skip the hassle and read the two most important sentences ever written right here:
“For example, at $7,250 Samantha’s big gold Wendy Brandes earrings, called ‘Cleopatra,’ cost more than a trip to Cairo. But Ms. Brandes also sells the earrings in silver for $450 — by no means cheap, but less than a ticket on Egyptair.”
I just checked the Egyptair website and it’s true: a restricted economy round-trip ticket for one person from New York’s JFK airport to Cairo, leaving May 30 and returning June 5, is $1452.61. But think of all the additional money you’d have to spend on a companion ticket, hotels, dining, Nile cruises and souvenir t-shirts for your extended family that say, “My mummy went to Egypt and all I got was this lousy t-shirt.” That would surely put you over $7,250. Just stay at home and save money by getting my gold and diamond earrings instead.
And, of course, none of my designs are cheap, darlings. We elegant people don’t say the word “cheap“!
