Friday Playlist: Hanging Out With the Bling Ring

A soundtrack for when you want to know how it feels to shop from someone else’s life.

What the real-life Bling Ring, a thieving crew of celebrity-obsessed kids from L.A., did was wrong. We can probably all agree that breaking into famous people’s houses to steal shoes, clothes, bags, jewelry, and whatever else happens to be lying around is NOT COOL. It’s not like you want to rob—or want anyone else to rob—Paris Hilton’s or Lindsay Lohan’s houses. Right? But still, you kinda have to admit: There’s something a little thrilling about watching the Bling Ring’s movie counterparts do it.

Next time a teeeeny part of you wants to know what it would be like to be “a part of the lifestyle,” listen to this playlist!
