Is Olympia Le-Tan's Pill Purse 'Humorous' Or Totally Inappropriate?

Sorry to be a Debbie Downer, but with America’s prescription pill epidemic on the rise — do we really have the stomach for fashion that idolizes it’s use? Olympia Le-Tan, who we normally LOVE for her book-themed clutches, just released this Pill Box Eveprofen twill mini shoulder bag ($450), which is “humorous,” according to it’s Net-A-Porter description (it is also sold-out, which is an entirely separate issue). With an estimated 7 million prescription pill abusers in the U.S. (many of them high-schoolers), Olympia’s tongue-in-cheek clutch, which claims to contain “77 tablets” and “cures any kind of pain,” crosses the line to me. What do you think?
