Chat Noir Socks - $7.50, Skates.com
Absolutely Fabulous is one of my favorite shows of all time, so I was jumping up and down with excitement at the news that the British sitcom was coming back for three new episodes to mark the 20th anniversary of the show, which ran sporadically from 1992 - 2005.
The first new episode aired on Christmas, the second on New Year's Day, and the third is scheduled to coincide with the 2012 London Olympics, with an upcoming movie also planned. Since I don't live in the UK, I wasn't sure when I'd have access to watch, but thanks to the magic of the internet, I was relieved find them and see that the show is still as good as ever. The first episode has already been taken down, but episode two is still online (US / UK), and interestingly enough, provided the inspiration behind this post.
During the episode, I caught a glimpse of Edina's assistant Bubble, played by the hilarious Jane Horrocks, unexpectedly rocking a pair of Chat Noir socks. AbFab fan or not, so many of you were enthused about the Black Milk Le Chat Noir swimsuit I posted about over the summer (sadly, long sold out), I thought you'd probably appreciate the find as much as I did. At $7.50, they're a relatively inexpensive fashion splurge, but now comes the task of figuring out what to wear them with!
Update: One of my readers just let me know that the new episodes of AbFab will be airing on BBC America and Logo this Sunday at 10pm! (Thanks, Joi!)
