For some, the country's economic dire straits mean job loss, financial cutbacks, and tough choices. Mary-Kate Olsen, however, believes that "the recession" is a hip new chain store akin to Fred Segal.
Page Six has the scoop:
A Page Six spy, who recently shared an elevator at Barneys with the diminutive actress, reports Olsen was excited about all the discounted merchandise for the taking. "It's really sad - the recession is everywhere. But at least they are having good sales," said Olsen, who pointed to her hat. "That's where I got this! The recession!"
While we congratulate the empathetic Olsen on finding a silver lining, we're appalled that she still hasn't discovered the hottest boutique in town, Madoff. The expense may be steep there, but if the actress forks over as much as she can, we have a feeling that the payoff will be priceless.
