Spotting Kim K: Parties at The Pool

Making her way up the east coast, Kim Kardashian posed for photographs as she attended a party at The Pool at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City on Saturday (May 23).

The E! reality starlet was accompanied to the shindig by gal pal Brittny Gastineau, making the trip to New Jersey after a weeklong stay in Miami, Florida for the opening of her new Dash boutique.

Pick of the Week: Stella McCartney "Diamante platform "sandal

I totally fell in love with this pair of diamante platform sandals. They remind me of fairy shoes; they have a very delicate feel to them. I love the mix of wood and rhinestones. It adds a very etheral look to these absolutely stunning shoes.

Designer Handbag of the Week: Hermes Diamond Crocodile Birkin

The Hermes Diamond Crocodile Birkin put 14 carats of pave diamonds on the signature Birkin lock and clasp would send me into a continuous groveling state. Doyle New York auctioned off a Hermes Diamond Croc Birkin which sold for $64,800. That price is reasonable, compared to a ‘$140,000 one-of-a-kind pink crocodile Birkin bag with diamond hardware that was sold in one day’ when the Hermes Palm Beach Store opened in February 2007 {via Palm Beach Daily News}. While a Croc Birkin is one my dream list, the diamond encrusted croc Birkin seems a bit far fetched for me, but is still a masterpiece and the pinnacle of all handbags.

found another artical:

In the race for Forbes’ Most Extravagant Handbags, it comes to be no surprise that Hermes takes the cake. The Hermes Birkin in Croc Porosus Lisse is no boring ‘ole standard issue 35cm Birkin, but made on special order only. The limited bag is set with over 10 carats of shiny diamonds, and with a price tag of nearly $150,000.
