Sex and the City 2-the Countdown Continues

There is no doubt that one of the things that made Sex and the City such a hit was the fact that each episode had as much eye candy as watching a runway show. While Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda each have their distinct styles Carrie Bradshaw seemed to start more trends than all of the others combined. Whether it be the oh so expensive, absolutely gorgeous heels, the hoards of girls who began wearing their names on gold plated necklaces inspired by Carrie, flowers pinned onto everything or Juicy terry cloth dresses Ms. Bradshaw was the go to girl for style when the series originally aired:
We couldn't leave out the classic tutu!

In the first Sex and the City movie Carrie not only had a flower she had a flower that obviously had a growth hormone!

Going classic for her first day at Vogue. I always loved the collar on this jacket.

From the movie trailers and the photos that have been leaked Sex and the City 2
seems to have Carrie with slightly more defined, but still risky looks.
As you may have noticed I love all things 70's inspired which really has me loving the Halston Heritage Collection that she is wearing below:

Also if you already have these items and would like the Carrie Diaries instead then that can be arranged as well!

This week our trivia question is so easy, made even easier by the fact that if you look really closely you can spot the answer! This one comes from one of my favorite scenes in Sex and the City the Movie, because while Marilyn Monroe may have thought diamonds were a girls best friend, Mr. Big knew that it really took a gorgeous pair of shoes to get his girl.

What brand are the shoes that Big proposed to Carrie with?

I will leave you with my absolute favorite quote from the show as my shopping addiction has me fearing I will one day suffer a similar fate:

"I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!"

Manolo Blahniks! Obviously. Carrie would wear nothing less.

Manolo, Carrie would think nothing of dropping $400 for shoes.

I'm already a follower of your blog. Love it - and I NEVER saw the 1st season, can you believe it?

:) I like the blue jacket.

And I can't imagine spending $400 on shoes... seems like there isn't even $4 worth of cow hide in 'em... :)

Okay I'm such a bum, I still haven't seen the first movie! But I will do it before #2 arrives.
