Prada Platforms & Stripes

Prada for Spring 2011 makes for great window shopping. I love the stripes and I especially adore the platforms! I know I could walk in these shoes! I took these pictures last Sunday on a cool windy day in front of the Prada SoHo store at Broadway and Prince Street in Manhattan.

These striped dresses are much lovelier in person than in magazines and the silver platforms are divine.

These are silver all the way around, on a slightly sculpted platform. The salesman told me they are selling very well and that they cost $895. Ouch.



With the white fur stole and the sequined Mary Janes, this look has a flapper-quality to it which I love.

We're going disco dancing tonight, baby!

Prada accessories for Spring 2011 and me, snapping their picture.

Thanks for the comment on my blog! These pictures are cool! I usually walk by those amazing stores in NYC and dream of the day I can actually buy something in there myself! True about Gaga, they said imitation is the highest form of flattery but I'm with Pink when she says, "No, it's just annoying"! LOL

I'm a huge fan of Mary Janes...and I'm seeing subtle flapper clues every where it seems.

Hi Pam, I'm with you, I love Prada (some of it, anyway), but it's way out of my budget. I wonder if you were successful in finding any vintage Prada?

Hi Sacramento, I love stripes too. I will be wearing them a lot now that it is finally spring. If you ever stroll on Fifth Avenue again, please let me know. We could meet for a glass of champagne!

Hi Erica, thanks for stopping by! I used to just stroll past these stores. Now I often stop in for a closer look at everything. It's so fun and the salespeople are usually so nice, especially at Prada.

Hi Terri, I love flapper references too. It goes well with my admiration for F. Scott Fitzgerald. Those Prada shoes with that stole were especially divine.
