Obligatory SATC Post...

We've all seen the movie... I don't need to go there. But thought I would post some fun, considerably affordable finds from the film.

Get yourself some love...
Love Keychain from Intuition ($85, Gold plated or Silver)

And, as opposed to the Timmy Woods bank-breaker, this faux from Intuition as well:

Beaded Eiffel Tower Bag ($75)
Couple of tees from Kitson (once again, obligatory)

Mr. Big tee ($48)

Sex and the City Skyline tee ($48)

Now here is a super affordable piece straight from the movie:

Gold Flower Bridal Brooch with Smoked Topaz
($17.99) Carrie wore this one..

Last but not least, a great alternative to this hot Dior bondage shoe ($780 at Saks) - also on Carrie

Is this one from Steve Madden:

Maddiee (109.95)

Amazing no? I like the snakeskin version better, but I wanted to show the black to show the similarities... The funny thing is I liked this shoe before I even knew it was a Dior!

Gotta love a bargain...

Summertime, and the living is easy..

Too easy perhaps, as I have completely been MIA from this blog. However my new place of employment now provides me with many hours of downtime on the computer, so expect new posts regularly, hooray! I guess I have completely managed to skip over all of spring fashion, but, who cares, summer is funner! (Yeah I know that's not english, but it rhymes, ok?)

Let's dive in, shall we?

First off, this great bathing suit/coverup combo from Vix (I know it's matchy-matchy, but sometimes I like being anal retentive):

Vix Sofia Marley Bathing Suit & Coverup ($130):

And a couple of deals from V. Secret:

Becca by Rebecca Virtue (on sale: top is $51, bottom is $37) Love the colors, but it's also reversible!

Beach Sexy Triangle Beach Set (on sale for $19.99!)
And from Intuition:

Adina Reyter Star Ring in Silver ($63) So adorable, great price!

Canvas Tote with Caramel Trim
- in olive or beige ($75) Classic!
Ashlee Woven Clutch (on sale for $49.99) Crazy colors, but so fun!

Modish Printed Dress in Pink
(on sale for $59.99)

Be.True Stackable Rings ($81) I love that these are square, and great metals!
Last but not least, from one of my faves, Fred Flare:

For those of you that know my blog, you know my obsession with all things nautical:

Anchors Away Carryall ($27)
I'm in love!

"I Am Not A Paper Cup" cup ($22) Eco friendly, not to mention you can still look cool with your Starbucksian style cup..
Since I ended my last post with flowers (and I'm in an eco-friendly mood), how bout these?

Rainy Day Garden ($14 each) choose from Wild Strawberry, Mint, Basil or Chamomile

Happy Easter!

Spring fever..

Hello all my long lost readers! I apologize for the unannounced hiatus however this winter hasn't exactly been the best for me. Career changes, newly single, family crap - needless to say I am all ready for spring! Here in New York it hasn't exactly felt like it yet, but a girl can dream! I should hopefully be heading to Miami in the coming months so at least I will get my dosage of sun and sand... Many thanks to all who commented on my previous post, I was very pleasantly surprised at the positive response/consensus! Since it is officially spring, I hereby refuse to post anything having to do with anything even slightly reminiscent of winter clothing. Am I thinking too far ahead? Maybe. Do I care? Nope.
First off, what is warm weather without madras?! (This is also to let the Preppy Princess know that I definitely, definitely do not dislike madras in any way shape or form.. or seersucker for that matter!! :-)

Target Xhilaration Plaid Patchwork Swimwear ($14.99 each for top&bottom) I grabbed these the last time I was there, managed to get the last one in my size! You can't beat the price..

Next up, Patchwork Bermudas from American Eagle - on sale for $39.50!
And also on the bargain front, Patchwork Shorts from Delias ($29.50)
I can't wait to get to Miami. And I'm trying to decide if I can justify buying these, because I've been in love with them for months now:

Dolce Vita Athens T-Strap in Brass Gold at Pink Mascara ($92.00) So. In. Love.

The newest from Miss Trish of Capri - Ball and Chain Sandal at Kitson ($245.00)
I'm also lusting after this bikini - it reminds me of a Mexican serape - which reminds me of Mexico.. which depresses me...

Rainbow Bikini at Victoria's Secret (top - $50, bottom $49)
Some finds from Snappy Turtle:

Starfish Shoulder Bag - ($140) Great beach bag..

Roberta Roller Rabbit the Fredericka Kurta
- ($68.00)
Don't ask me about the name of this thing, but I think it looks so great over a white tank.. Yum!

Can't beat the price on this adorable Nantucket-reminiscent necklace from Forever21 -
Whale Necklace ($8.90)
I've been in love with this ring as well, don't know why I haven't bought it yet as the price is phenomenal:
Rachel Leigh: Audrey Bow Ring at Pink Mascara ($44)
Also from Pink Mascara, this adorable T-Bags Bubble Dress in Navy ($176)
Guess I must be on a navy kick, found this great dress at J. McLaughlin

Edie Silk Sheath ($275.00)

Also, found this fantastic clutch - it's so hard to find something completely neutral that you can wear with just about anything in spring/summer, but I think this bamboo one might just do it!

Bamboo Clutch ($150)

Last but not least, I think this is perfect for the New York urban windowsill garden.. Just make sure you don't try to drink them when you're tired/drunk..

Flowers in a Can from Fred Flare ($10)
Oh, I can't wait for spring, with warm temps, blooming flowers, and love (if I'm lucky?)...
