Hot Rods & Roses at Prada


I shot these pictures a couple of days ago at my old Prada standby—the SoHo store at Broadway and Prince Streets. I really loved the hot rod print on the shorts—so 50s, so fun!—and the rose and crystal cuff is beyond.




I was also loving the fire engine red tote even though it is so very large and open. It’s hard for me to turn down patent leather.



Isn’t this blouse divine? I never get tired of eyelet, in all its many forms!


Your intrepid photographer in the reflection, as well as her sweet daughter who will start kindergarten in September!




She loves these purple-tinted sunglasses and gets smiles wherever she goes when she wears them. People also tell her she looks like Elton John, which makes me laugh every time.

Your daughter is so darn cute! Love that big smile.

If I had unlimited funds, I would make that blue patent Prada bag mine...but I don't so I will just admire it on your blog.

Have a great Monday!
xo, Adrienne

So many yummies--especially that eyelet blouse. That I might honestly stalk to see if it goes on sale. And the tote! Brilliant.

Window shopping Prada is all that I can afford so thank you for taking me along for the ride!

That's one cute little assistant you've got there!

I see you have a true fashionista with you, ahhhhhhhh love, love her and her purple glasses.
I have been after alternative prints, away from the typical flowers, stripes, etc. And here comes Prada with what I have in my head, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

It's a treat to get a glimpse of your daughter. And I love your REAL window shopping posts. I would wear those shorts in a heart-beat, although with a brighter top.

Hi Adrienne, I love that blue bag too. I didn't have the heart to go inside to ask how much, but I'm thinking at least $1,000. Ouch! XO, Jill

Hi Catherine, isn't that eyelet divine? It is so delicate and beautiful. If I get any leads on it being on sale I will let you know pronto! XO, Jill

Hi Pam, I think I may have loved that rose and crystal cuff most of all. So gorgeous! XO, Jill

Hi Hostess, I am so going to miss taking my cute assistant on these weekday jaunts to photograph windows. This particular corner of NYC is a zoo on the weekends. And oh, I can't afford Prada either but I like to look anyway! XO, Jill

Hi Sacramento, I love my girl in those purple glasses too, they are hand-me-downs from a friend and she loved them right away!

And I can SO see you in these kinds of alternative prints. Wouldn't it be interesting to find out who makes these for Prada? XO, Jill

jill815 said...

Hi Terri, I agree, those hot rod shorts would be so fun to wear but definitely with a brighter top than the one in the window. XO, Jill

There's a reason why I love Prada, so fresh and original yet wearable- I love these outfits and that tote.

And wha? Your baby girl is going to kindergarten? Soon it'll be college! I love her purple shades!

Bella my dear, I can SO see you in the hot rod shorts, and I know you'd punch it up a lot more than the way it was styled in the window! XO, Jill
