Life List Uniforms: Open a Swiss Bank Account

This post is sponsored by eBay. From the new to the hard to find, when it’s on your mind, it’s on eBay.

Say you want to open a Swiss bank account — number 16 on my Life List. I’ve done some research, and the Swiss government requires you to wear black while carrying at least five passports and a satchel packed with cash.

Right now, I can tell you the license plate numbers of all six cars out front. I know the best place to look for a gun is the cab of the gray truck outside, and at this altitude, I can run flat out for a half mile.

In heels.

    Maggie Bourne has a certain ring to it. Will you implant the account number into your hip (life list #17)?

  • Roxanna Says:

    I like the way you think, lady.

    I too would love a Swiss bank account, but I’m sure they would laugh when my daily balance would be something like $20.
    I would also require a hat of some sort. Either a beret or fedora.

  • Evani Says:

    Love those earring and the bag! Lol and I second the beret idea for sure!

    i got married in switzerland and needed an atm. “swiss bank” had completely escaped my mind. i walked into a giant room, tall like an atrium. everything was white marble. there wasn’t a sound. in the middle there was a small black desk with an impeccably dressed man behind it. honestly, my first thought was, “am i in heaven? did i die”? the room was otherwise empty. he walked over and i’m still dumb, thinking the bank must be on another floor. i inquired about the atm and he gave me a kind smile and said, “dis eez not dat kind off bank”. STILL CONFUSED, i thougjt about it a second and said, “Oh!” my husband was so jealous.

    Oh no, despite being dressed for the part, you might have to take this one off your list- Switzerland no longer allows Americans to have a swiss bank account. Crazy but true. Even Americans who live and work there were forced to close their accounts.

    I have a black tie function on Thursday night and I’m wearing a Kate Spade dress. Those earrings would be absolutely perfect. How quickly can I get them shipped?

  • Karen Says:

    Hilarious and such a creative post. Thanks!

  • Natollie Says:

    I wouldn’t recommend having a Swiss bank account. I have one (being Swiss), but if you live abroad, the fees can be pretty horrendous. Also, people automatically assume you’re some sort of … Romney.
