Chanel Shell Purse Costs $48,000: Worth It or Waste?

We love purses just as much as the next gal, and who doesn't love finding a gorgeous seashell on the beach? But combining the two apparently costs $48,000. Why? Because it's from Chanel, of course!
The Chanel Shell Minaudieres clutch is a giant molded seashell that was featured on the Chanel Spring 2012 runway, Purseblog.com reports. Now, you don't expect a Chanel purse to be cheap, but $48,000 for a totally impractical, bizarre-looking purse seems excessive -- even for the one percent.
But it might make you feel better to hear that the purse is covered in real freshwater pearls, which helps explain the expense. A little steep for your budget? This plain pearlescent resin version goes for a relatively cheap $33,000. Are you saving your pennies yet?
