We wouldn't call ourselves label whores, per se, but we're hardly immune to their appeal. To wit: compliment our boots, and we'll be the first to tell you they're a 90%-off Céline score. But, one place we don't get too fancy is in the grocery store. Springing for the Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Trader Giotto's is about as upscale as our food purchases get, and that still costs less than most closet bargains.

You know, for when you care to slurp the very best.
Because King Arthur is so pedestrian, darling.
Tiffany & Co. Yogurt
A Tiffany & Co. ring is forever. A Tiffany & Co. yogurt is approximately two minutes. Please, don't propose with the latter.

We're totally willing to drink gold flakes, if they contain caffeine.

Are we Olivia Palermo yet? *Slurp*
Chanel Baby Formula
We don't recommend, unless you want you child dispensing catty bon mots like Karl.
