My sister-in-law, who's just returned from a fab weekend in Venice, Italy, sent me the following email:
"I'm just looking at Athenian shoes on your blog - compared to Venice, an absolute bargain!"
Attached to the email was the following photo:
In case you can't read the price tags, the shoes are 785 € and the bag is 1,420 €. That's 1,067 USD for the shoes and 1,930 USD for the bag. Maybe the shiny things on the bag are precious stones. The shop was closed at the time, so she couldn't go in and ask.
I must say, I don't care much for bags, but I do love shoes and will pay good money for the right pair. Even so, I think I'd have nightmares if I walked around with 785 € worth of leather between my feet and the ground. Eeek.
