Do Not Support Fug

We have allowed Prada to get away with selling overpriced nylon bags for years (and years and years and years) but we absolutely CANNOT allow them to sell overpriced plexi shoes and bags. Please do not support the fug.

$1295 for this?!?!? Seriously. Stop it.

You know when you're so frustrated/angry, you actually start laughing? I'm doing that right now thanks to these $990 sandals:


And these $850 clogs:

And finally, who in their right mind would pay $980 for these?!?!?!? If you raised your hand, please do not run away. I just want to sit down and understand where you are coming from. Help me help you.


Again, please do not allow Prada to charge obscene amounts of money for crap material and design by spending your hard earned money on any of the above items. If you're going to spend money on plexi shoes, do it right and get these:

$51.99 on Amazon and they even come with a tip jar compartment.

Serious. The shoes alone are hideous but when you take into account the asking price...KILL ME.

hey! I kinda like this prada collection, but certainly not at this crazy ass price tag!!!
Chanel made a lot of plastic items too, like the camelia sandals, that were really expensive too! c'mon don't be so tuff on Prada! :-)

I was just thinking the same when this morning I saw that "bag". Wasn't Furla that 4 years ago made the same thing but also with a sort of cotton bag inside?
Not even original...

LMAO!! i want a pair of tip jar shoes!! so hilarious!

Purse Addict said...

LOL, hi BCBG! I agree, Chanel (and just abt every designer out there) is also guilty of charging way too much for cheap material and bad design. To be fair, there are other S/S 2010 Prada items that I like but these are not my favorites :P

Hahaha, FashionAve, good to know posting abt ugly items is also appreciated :)

Jade - I'm not sure abt Furla but Saks gives out basically the same bag minus the Prada logo to their employees...I'm sure it doesn't cost $1200 and they do it only to make sure no one steals the goods while at work.

LOL..Linh, those shoes are getting a lot of attention. I think Amazon owes me money since I'm helping them increase their revenue in the shoes for strippers section.

You are too funny! I won't even buy the $50 one from amazon, but point taken. although I think my daughter will wear those...they're like Cinderella's glass slippers, only plexi!!!lol

Purse Addict said...

Hahah..SoCa - how was your NYC trip??

Junee - wait which ones would Mads wear?!?!? LOL, I hope not the tip jar one...

MadsaboutU said...

Oh she would so wear anything she can get her little feet into! the only ones she would not wear so far are my big booties because she has a hard time getting into those. She's not one who would prefer comfort over style. lol

I'm not going to lie. I wore clear heals to prom... but that was in the late 90's... and a HUGE mistake. I'm sorry to see them come back.
