But How Did She Look? Sex and the City Hits the Streets (Again)!

Welcome back, Carrie! New York City just got a lift, thanks to the reemergence of Sarah Jessica Parker, who was spotted sauntering in her summer whites while shooting Sex and the City 2. We're loving everything about this look: the billowy feel of the dress, those shiny Christian Louboutin pumps (shhh…don't tell Manolo!), the statement necklace, and best of all, the gleaming Chanel purse. Hot fun in the summertime, indeed.

Get Carried away some more in our SATC Style Rewind gallery, then go to the Manolo Mafia gallery to see street scenes from the first movie and read what we thought should have happened.

Kim K's Blog: Stripes and Leggings....Cute and Comfy

I am so into stripes right now! Sometimes they can be unflattering but the asymmetrical cut of the shirt is kind of slimming! I think an over sized T-shirt with tight leggings is cute and comfy!

Handbag ~ Pick of the Day: Chloé Elsie Lurex Shoulder Bag

Elsie is quite a unique name, and I actually know two Elsies and one Elsa, so I'm a bit biased. But the Chloé Elsie Lurex Shoulder Bag is not quite as unique as the name. Sure, it has a bit of exotic, with its alligator print, but that's about the extent of its exotic and unique identity. However, if you want a classy, classic bag and are tired of Chanel, then this is certainly a great choice. If there are two things that Chloé has mastered, it's great, heavy leather and the fact that the devil is in the details (metaphorically speaking).

This bag is made of Lurex, so no great heavy leather here. But there are some extremely subtle details that are worth noting: the twisted rope handles and the interesting clover-shaped turn-lock closure. So yes, it looks cool and classic and all that, but I think something is missing here. There's a hint of blahness that is just not going away for me. I'd say, pair it with an amazing outfit to distract from that. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1,250.

D.S Pick of the Day: Sergio Rossi “Ivonne” Ankle Boot

I have an obsession with blue shoes, because great ones are so hard to find, and these Sergio Rossi “Ivonne” Ankle Boots are definitely amazing finds. The dark blue suede is just the right color that it isn’t too dark, but will work fabulously with any color denim.

Personally, I don’t think I would wear denim with these booties. I would prefer to wear them with a cute bronze mini dress, to match the hot exposed zipper that wraps itself around the shoe. Zippers are everywhere this season, and I must say, the exposed ones are definitely topping the list. I love that these booties go a little above the ankle, and therefore, I want to make sure the dress that I pair with them is super mini. But you can also wear them with skinny jeans tucked in. I cannot wait to debut this come fall.
