Nina Garcia May Be A Little Out Of Touch With The Average American

Nina Garcia holds a fashion director gig at Marie Claire, a longtime spot on Project Runway‘s judging panel, owns a number of vintage Salvatore Ferragamo bags, and is a J.C. Penney stock price booster. As such, she’s probably swimming in money and buying things we can only dream about. She’s also quite far removed from the average American woman, as evidenced by a recent tweet.

The link goes to a page of pricey Birkins that range between $8,900 to $74,500. The average American salary is around $26,000. So no, being able to buy these bags will probably take just a bit more than “a few weeks’ salary”.
