Just plain folks

Vanity Fair estimated the cost of Cindy McCain's outfit at the convention the other night. Final estimate: somewhere in the neighborhood of $300,000
Oscar de la Renta dress: $3,000
Chanel J12 White Ceramic Watch: $4,500
Three-carat diamond earrings: $280,000
Four-strand pearl necklace: $11,000–$25,000
Shoes, designer unknown: $600
Total: Between $299,100 and $313,100

Of course looking at the dress I'm pretty sure they forgot to account for the cost of the time machine they used to bring it back from the future when the "Banana style" swept the nation.

I'm slightly skeptical that those earrings actually cost that much (but what the hell do I know about what the obscenely rich spend their money on) but either way she was walking around in couple years worth of my salary. Yep, just plain folks.

I really impressed with the way you are thinking about Cindy McCain's outfit.
