If you’re reading this and think you’re just four or five seconds from buyin’, be prepared for a hit to your wallet.

“There is one frame available in six variations — the silver, pink, blue, green and red styles will retail for $840, while a deluxe 24-karat gold-plated version will sell for $1,950,” WWD noted.
