The first thing I noticed in Capri (aside from the ocean and the mountains of course) was the sandals hanging outside of every shop. They were all absurdly embellished, shiny and bright.. but somehow simultaneously chic. The originator of this look is the shoe shop in the center of Capri called Canfora which was founded in 1946. Everyone from Sofia Loren to Jackie O has worn these sparklers. Unfortunately for me they are around 250 euro.. which with today’s conversion rate is a pair of Prada’s.. so I just couldn’t bring myself to buy them. Of course I know regret that decision.
