In the spring of 2003, Miuccia Prada send out some sandals. They were flat silk, and encrusted with plastic pieces cut like jewels. And to say they were a hit would be an understatement - because, within months, they were everywhere. You can still find the sandals at various places - thrift stores in LA, outlets in Milan, fashion closets in Manhattan - but when you wear them, everybody always goes, "Ooh, those Prada sandals." Except with ours, we started to look down and go, "Ew, those Prada sandals." So we grabbed some black nail polish and did a quick paint job. Now they look like a completely different pair of shoes, but a few swipes of nail polish remover with a cotton ball, and they're back to Miuccia's original vision. We're sick of getting pedicures for ourselves, but giving them to our designer shoes was a sort of hysterical experience.
