SATC2 - Make the Clothes Your Own

Okay I know we've been Sex and the City 2 crazed - maybe it will subside slightly after the movie release - no guarantees!  ;o) 

After reading last week that Carrie has 42 outfit changes in the movie, we promptly counted how many we've seen in the trailers and how many we can still expect to see!  (roughly 12 & 30 respectively) 

So I can't tell you how excited we were about the release of the SATC book on May 18th!!  While at first tempted to pre-order on Amazon and pay expedited shipping - I later thought - "Do I really want to see all the clothes BEFORE the movie?  Wouldn't it be better to WAIT one more week until the movie?" 

The answer - the Blonde is waiting, the Brunette couldn't help herself! 

We'll spare you if you have decided to wait - but we've seen a lot of great fashion from the trailers alone.  Using the screenshots, we've come up with some ideas to mimic some of the looks - without breaking the bank.

Since I didn't look at the book and there aren't any full outfit shots online, I had to trust the brunette to describe to me what the shoes and accessories looked like:)  This version is a little more boho than Carrie's, but I seriously think it would look precious!

Dress from Edressme for $155, click's a VERY good knockoff!
The adorable head scarf is from Free People for $54, click here.  How you choose to wear/tie the scarf depends on your own level of bravery:)
Charm necklace from F21 for $8.80, click here.  Obviously, any little charm will work!
Sunglasses also from F21 for $5.80, click here
Shoe from Dillards for $89.99, click here.

Dress by Blaque Label for $68
T-Strap Pumps from Modcloth for $62
Bag by Ecko (currently on sale for $29.99)
Shades by Urban Outfitters for $10
Necklace - Who would do a better knock-off than Patricia Fields herself?  for $56
(sorry ladies, this item is out of stock - gee, wonder why?  maybe in a few weeks...)
Bracelet by Aqua for $30
You can get a floppy black hat anywhere...

Speaking of wanting to make clothes your own, have you seen how amazing the girls looked rockin' the red carpet at NYC and London premieres?!  Yowza!!

Love the neon colors on SJP (how did she get the dress to do that?!) and Kristen Davis.  Cyntha Nixon and Kim Cattrall look sexy also!

A couple of the girls at the after-party in NYC!

And the girls looked just as amazing at the London premiere!  Love SJP's black Alexander McQueen Dress and Kristen looks amazing in gold!

And yes, there was a HAT...

So excited to see the movie! 

The brunette is going tonight in Fayetteville and the blonde is going tomorrow night in Dallas!

Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend!
