Mother sends invoice for $548 after toddler's designer shoes were damaged on playdate.

Mother Sarah Louise Bryan, 28, has invoiced the parents of her daughter’s friend because the child’s $548 Italian designer booties were damaged on a playdate.

The Daily Mail reports that when Bryan’s three-year-old daughter Isabella arrived home from her friend’s house, she discovered the shoes were scuffed and was outraged to find they had been drawn on with permanent marker.

In anger, Bryan, who lives in the UK, emailed her daughter’s friend’s parents:

So Isabella has just come home from her playdate with your child and I am disgusted to see her new Italian leather shoes are all scuffed and have a Sharpie mark on them.

Below is the bill for these replacing because they can not be fixed these are fine Italian leather! As a designer I do not want my child to look anything less than pristine.

Bill for a replacement pair of Italian fur booties £325 (AU$548) to be paid by 01/02/2017 before I take this higher. Thank you. Sarah.

It is not yet known if Bryan has received a reply.

Bryan is a fashion designer, model and aspiring actress. She is hoping that her daughter will follow in her footsteps and regularly posts images of her on Instagram in designer apparel.

“Bella is already so image conscious that she knows how to accessorise and is very colour coordinated,” Bryan told the publication.

“It’s fine for other parents to dress their kids in cheap Primark gear, but I think Bella to want to be more than that and I’m happy to spend money to make her look good and feel special.”

Bryan is well-known for her unconventional fashion designs such as a dress made entirely of Skittles lollies and an outfit made of pubic hair (yes, really.) In December, Bryan also revealed a dress that she made out of dead fish.

Here’s hoping the families sort out this little shoe snafu peacefully.
