The Bubble wears Prada…

The Bubble wears Prada…

Prada_gemma_2 For so long a time, these were a lust object of mine and as soon as I started seeing these Prada ads, the fashion cogs had already started calculating how I could get my mitts on them. 

Well, Prada at Harrods made my day when they said they had a few pairs left (apparently, they’re sold out elsewhere….who are all these fabulous Prada knee high wearing people and where can I see them????)

My verdict? They are the most perfect texture for summer – a very very thin silk knit which feels lovely against your legs.  They are SOOOPER long hence why all the slouchy bunching as seen on the catwalks.  At £55, they’re hardly a cheap thrill but I think these will take you through the summer and winter (could wear them over tights!) – knee highs don’t seem to be disappearing anytime soon! 

The lovely Fashionologie very kindly featured my dodgy attempts at trying to work them into an outfit.  However, I think this will take a bit of trial and error as illustrated here.

    I think you pull those tights off well (and I don’t think many could!) Congrats on starting the blog, I stumbled upon it via Fashionologie. I love the colors and the site design is cute. I look forward to reading more!

    Hi there, I’m new to your site and wanted to tell you you’re doing a great job…I love it! A great guilty pleasure for those of us who should really be paying the rent rather than eyeing luxuries 😉
    If it’s at all possible, I would love to have you purchase a pair of the Prada socks (grey ribbed) and post them to me here in the US. Everywhere I’ve looked here they’re sold out, much to my chagrin! Think you might be able to snag a pair?

    Love your site! I’m posting this rather late but if you come across any more, I’d also love if you could post me a pair…
    Here’s a question though, how do they stay up? Is there rubber ribbing around the top?
