The (Crazy) True Cost Of Living Like The Olsen Twins

If there's anything the Olsen twins do well, it's living la vida cash flow. With a stable of successful brands under their teeny-tiny belts and a childhood fortune to fall back on, there's really nothing that's out of reach for fashion's most diminutive dynamic duo.

Just in time for their 30th birthday, we decided to take a quick look at just how much it really costs to live like an Olsen twin — the clothes, the cars, the chairs, oh my! While we all know the twins' biggest asset is how much they don't reveal about their lives (exhibit A), there's just enough of a social media crumb trail to piece together the true cost of living like an Olsen twin.

Sisters who choose swatches together make millions together, right?

A similar perch — the Mies van der Rohe Barcelona chair — from which to make executive decisions can be yours for a cool $6,850.

MK & A have a penchant for posting up with high-end design dealers. Seen here with John Wyeth, whose Manhattan emporium stocks the $20,000 lamps and $16,000 chairs that casually flood The Row's storefronts, the twins' connections most likely extend to outfitting their impressive real estate purchases as well.

Ashley's $7M apartment could easily double as the headquarters for the sisters' stylish brand, The Row, or host collection previews for Elizabeth and James.

Look familiar? A preview for Elizabeth and James at the Christine Gachot-redesigned The Smyth hotel. (Gachot worked with decorator Paul Fortune on Marc Jacobs' NYC residence, so we're guessing her hourly rate is steep, to say the least.)

The starting price bid for a similar style of daybed at Todd Merrill auction house is $4,000.

Mary-Kate's 8,000-square-foot Upper East Side residence, which she bought with now husband Olivier Sarkozy for a cool $13.5M, takes its design cues from a markedly less pluralistic epoch.

That sense of opulence is echoed in The Row's recently opened nearby outpost, where a Carlo Bugatti chair (throne?) offsets less ornate pieces. A similar style is up for grabs on 1stDibs for nearly $30,000.

But don't let the price tags fool you. MK & A are still human (-ish) — and still have homes in L.A. Plus, classes at Katonah Yoga start at just $16.

A cleanse from Olsen fave Pressed Juicery will set you back just under $200.

But the freedom to post shitty inspirational quotes to Instagram and really, really mean it? Priceless.
