118 Luxuries Only Socialites, Like Kim Kardashian Can Afford

 - Sep 29, 2008
Socialites like Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian seem to live increasingly luxurious lifestyles. As the saying goes, "The rich get richer, and the poor only get poorer". It rings so true at a time when ordinary people face difficult times ahead, with much of the world’s financial institutions in turmoil. And yet, there are those, like Kim Kardashian, who can afford the most outrageously expensive goods.

Here are 120 of those costly items that are either made from precious metals and gemstones or just plain hard to get like limited edition goods. Sometimes these luxuries are expensive because of their sheer opulence, like massive homes and estates and uniqueness. All of them aren’t necessary for basic living, but it is amazing these luxury items exist in the first place and secondly, that there is actually a demand for them.

A huge proportion of these opulent goods depend on big spenders, so its no wonder families like the Kardashians, Hiltons and Trumps are praised by luxury retailers.
