In the event that you win the lottery or stumble upon an excessive fortune, after paying off your student loans (ugh), buying a home for your parents (aw), and donating to charity, may we suggest that you dip into Nasty Gal's crazy vintage goldmine? At the very least, pretend shop and place one of these outrageous items in your shopping cart to feel what it's really like to be alive.
We did some exploring on the e-tailer's retro hub and found a handful of rare, do-you-even-need-these-really designer items, with excessive price tags to match. Finds include this Chanel ski helmet ($1,645), this Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama leather key holder ($525), these Chanel ski googles ($950), and this Chanel denim apron ($650).
Just a little aspirational holiday shopping on this fine Friday.
