Apparently, we're a bit towel-obsessed at the moment. Perhaps it's the very un-beachy weather we're having here in NYC that has us dreaming about sunnier, sandier days. While we won't be wearing ours anytime soon, we rather liked these D. Porthault beach versions that we saw on style.com. But the price tag was what really made our jaw drop. Four hundred and fifty dollars?! Of course, this isn't the first time we've come across expensive designer beach towels. We're actually big fans of Hermès' beach towels - who wouldn't be? But one of those bad boys rings in at over five hundred dollars. It's, um, a little out of our price range. And even if we could afford one, we're not sure we would buy it. It seems sacrilegious to get sand on anything Hermès, or anything that costs that much. Period. For us, this is veering into the expensive-designer-clothing-for-babies-that-will-vomit -on-or-at-best-grow-out-of-them-in-two-months debate. So, tell us, would you grab your boogie board and your four hundred and fifty dollar towel for a day of sun and sand? --AMANDA JEAN BOYLE
