These Christian Louboutin platform heels are embroidered to look like a motherboard–isn’t that clever and quirky and fun?–and they can be yours for a mere $1695, which happens to be the same price as a brand new MacBook Pro. I know, I know, it seems like an astronomical sum, but it’s actually not that bad considering that you can use these Louboutins to watch movies, work remotely from anywhere in the world, complete ambitious graphic design projects, download music, and Skype with your friends. Oh. Wait a second. I just re-read the description and it turns out these shoes can’t do any of that. They look like a computer, and cost as much as a computer, but they’re just shoes. Now I’m confused. And kind of sad. [Racked]

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the most expensive nail polish in the world: Azature’s Black Diamond. The shimmery black formula contains 267 carats of crushed diamonds, and–yep, you read the headline correctly–one bottle will cost you $250,000. The other day I spent $12 on a bottle of nail polish and felt a little guilty and self-indulgent, so I don’t even know how to fully comprehend the fact that this exists, and that (presumably) someone is going to buy it. I mean, can you imagine? Every time you chipped your manicure on your keyboard, you’d be losing, like, a thousand dollars. Stressful. Apparently Azature is deigning to sell a department store version for $25, but I think I’ll just DIY my own by shredding up some dollar bills, mixing them into a bottle of Wet N’ Wild, and then crying myself to sleep.

10 Pairs Of Really Ugly, Super Expensive Designer Pants

As wise poet and personal role model LuAnn deLesseps once crowed — actually she autotuned it — “money can’t buy you class.” Money also can’t buy you style, as evidenced by the wide array of horribly ugly pants on offer by high end designers these days. Do you have $600 and no abiding sense of taste and the desire to look like a meth-addict out for her first post-prison cig break? We’ve got some really wowzer designer trousers just for you. Check them out in our gallery of wildly overpriced ugly pants.

What could be said about Anthropologie’s Rickshaw (yes, a real thing) that Anthropologie couldn’t say better? Just listen to their whimsical description of the $2,200 culturally questionable bikemobile:

While on a trip to India work project to find new objects to culturally appropriate some of our team got tired of walking among the poors flagged down a rickshaw for a spur-of-the-moment tour of the markets where we find cheap goods and sell them at offensively ridiculous prices the town. Inspired by the opportunity to make money ride and feeling a bit light-headed from not eating whimsical, we decided to design our own set of wheels, with some very special touches like a collapsible kantha-fabric canopy, handlebar streamers, a bell for brrring-bringing on the bike path and even a headlight that illuminates when the pedals are cranked (warning: does not come with ethnically ambiguous driver). An instant conversation starter on the road or on display, we’ll bet  your neighbors and friends will find this all a bit troubling you’re whisked away on the adventure of a lifetime once you hop on — or into — our crazy expensive and completely inappropriate quixotic carriage. No two are exactly alike.

And good news! You can order up to 15 of them at a time! [Anthropologie]
