Prada style for £6.50

Prada's SS11 tropical fruit-y collection is nothing if not fun. I love the banana prints, and the banana earrings that Miuccia wore to take her bow at the end of the show.

Said banana earrings unfortunately cost £140, boo, and probably sold out almost instantly. But fear not, I have found an alternative. I was browsing in Claire's Accessories (shock horror!) for new jewellery for my helix piercing (the one I had in fell out during a lecture and bounced down a load of steps. Needless to say I wasn't going after it in front of a lecture theatre full of Austria students,) and I came across these cute and colourful fruit earrings, and they were only £6.50 for six pairs (obviously I paid in Euros, €8.95 to be exact, which at the current exchange rate is £7.78. Grr crappy exchange rate.)

They had another set with fruit with smiley faces, which were really cute, but I thought I wouldn't want to wear more than one pair of smiley fruit at a time, and maybe smiley fruit is pushing the boundaries of silly just a little too far. As it is, I thought I'd stop at two pairs at once (I have three holes in each of my lobes.)


What do you think? Do I just look ridiculous? Or would you wear fruit earrings. I must admit, they do make me feel really summery!

  1. Aww, those are lovely! I love shopping in Claires still for cute/random earrings and hairthings. Even though I'm about 10 years older than their target audience!

  4. I flipping LOVE Claire's Accessories! I was just in there myself today, buying a pair of sunglasses that had been featured in Grazia, so obviously it's OK. I know the earrings you mean, they have these ones of donuts and ice creams with eyes too, and I want to get them, but am trying to be good at the minute.
    Although, I have just remembered I do have these really cool apple earrings, one of which is an apple core and the other one has a big bite taken out of it... they are amazing.

  8. Piercing snaps! Except my rook piercing kind of grew out. Through my ear. Was pretty gross. Quite fancy getting it re-done though...
