Honey, I can't afford Prada! That pair of little sandals is likely the cost of half my monthly living budget including food, utilities, and house payment!

But yes, usually I don't like Prada, because her clothes look like something I could make just as well, for myself, at home, using old 1960s Simplicity patterns.

i have the fish ones and i absolutely love them!!! they are comfortable, fun, and the colors are gorgeous. i can't wait to wear them. i'm in my mid-twenties as well and the thought of me being too old to wear them never even entered my mind. honestly, when i was a teen i wouldn't have been able to afford them, and now in about 5-10 years i probably will be too old to wear something like that, but right now i think is the perfect age to rock those cuties. can't wait for the weather here in nyc to warm up so i could put them on.

I kind of like them, they're childish but in a kind of humorous way. I personally like the starfish ones better but that's because I like the colors

They're both cute but I like the Starfish one a little better. Keep them both!

I wouldn`t wear them, they are not my style. The first ones are really childish, but the 2nd are ok.

Hm. They would be very cute... but there are a few design issues that make them look childish.. at least IMO they do. Maybe if the straps weren't so thick... and the fish had a bit more embellishment.... and maybe use metallics.. I dunno. I think they are cute.. but as they are, they do look childish.

I'd pick the pair you didn't want to keep and return them, if they left a canyon in your wallet. If you feel self-consciously young looking wearing them, then return them! I personally think both pairs are really cool and can't pick a favourite. The starfish is clearly more versatile, but the fish are exponentially more fun I think.

I saw very cute flipflops this summer on a girl walking down the street.. they had a cute little fish detail on them much like these.. but the fish was beaded or something.. and they were more like flipflops than a sandal... too bad i never found those. Anyways.. that's OT... but I like the fish idea... but i'm sure if you tried, you could pull them off.

i saw these in the store yesterday...don't care for them...
but thought you might all like to know that there is a seahorse thong as well that goes along with the seaside theme...LOL...

the colours weren't great...but i thought that it was the most flattering style of sandal in the group...

Unfortunately I didn't see the seahorse ones. I dont think the store had them.

I kept the starfish and exchanged the fish sandals for a more conservative black Prada sandal.

For those interested in wedges. There is also a pair of suede prada wedges that have a fish on the suede wedge.

They're a tiny bit more adult than the ones I originally had. However they're kind of strange looking.
