Savanna chic

This gorgeous Giraffe print silk halter neck top is gorgeous and is in keeping with the animal print trend.

It's a little pricey at £155 but just think of the amount of wear that you'll get out of it, wear with jeans and chunky wedges, or with shorts and gladiator sandals, or even on it's own if your brave enough and have the right legs for it.

It will also make a great summer holiday item, and it's the kind of top that will never really go out of style due the the colour and style of it.

Will last you all summer and through to winter.

More Sex and the City style!

Another Sex and the City style find ladies!

This green prom dress is a mere £16 from Primark and is a pretty spot on match for the one that Carrie wore in the movie.
Would be lovely to wear for a summer wedding or even ascot.

Birds, bugs and beads at Topshop!

I'm loving these accessories from Freedom at Topshop.

Sequin beaded parrot brooch £8, this will really bring a plain coloured t-shirt to life and all on a budget.

Bug accessories, weirdly enough, seem to be quite a trend at the moment, this bug brooch is another bargain at only £10.

And what can i say about these colourful beads (£15)... well they can be worn with pretty much any colour that you have in your wardrobe and will definitely brighten up any outfit!

Hot picks from warehouse

Warehouse have got a great range of clothes at the moment, here are three of my favs this week

Light khaki linen dress £55 is perfect for the summer (if it ever returns?) and is very Charlotte from SATC, a classic dress that will last you for years and is great for pear shapes, plus khaki is set to be a huge colour trend for a/w 08 so you'll be ahead of the game.

The floral dress £50 is so on trend and is great for our ever changing weather as it will make a lovely summer dress or can be worn with opaque tights and a cardi on colder days.

The tan belt £22 is another classic item and would look great worn with either of these dresses and will do wonders for your figure!

They also have some funky bangles and bracelets and a good range of bags from brands like Tabitha and Jocasi.

Hightstreet bargains of the week!

Sex and the city movie premiere outfits

A couple of days late with this post, but i have been away from my PC for a few days. Just wanted to give my thoughts on the SATC premiere outfits, everyone has be slagging off poor SJP's oufit but i actually think that it's a lovely dress (Alexander McQueen) and i love the hat (although it does look like she's holding a plant on top of her head in this pic), but i think the dress should have been a different shade of green as it just drained her complexion.

In my opinion Kim Cattrall looked the best, very classy, she wore a lovely Vivienne Westwood dress and the shade of red looked fantastic on her. i was a little disappointed with Kristin Davis' outfit it was just too boring and not very flattering for her figure and i'm still undecided on Cynthia Nixon's dress.

A step in the right direction!

A complete workout in a stroll?

Fitflops claim to give you a workout while you walk by toning and triming your calf, thigh and more importantly, your bum muscles, reducing cellulite, and they claim to be super comfortable 'like walking in barefoot but a little better', they can also help support you lower back muscles and encouarge better posture.

Just think you could wear them on a day out shopping and burn extra calories whilst toning up and being super comfortable at the same time!

They come in a range of styles and colours, including these very on trend gladiator style sandals.

Available from http://www.boots.com and priced at £36

Sex and the city style

Finally Sex and the city the movie is released in the UK on 28th May, i can barely contain my excitement!!

And if you love Carrie as much as i do, then you'll be thrilled to know that you too can accessorise just like her. i can't believe that i have never come across this website before (shame on me), but http://www.patriciafield.com/ is a fantastic site full of quirky, clothes and accessories which Patricia is famed for, and it has quite a few items that Carrie actually wears, like the famous Eiffel Tower bag as see in this photo above, which is $375 (or $1920 for a swarovsky crystal encrusted one) and the her famous Carrie necklace, as well as 'the house of field tote' as worn by Carrie in the movie.

And the good news in that they ship internationally...horray!

Shoes to make your mouth water

I have just found these gorgeous ultra summery shoes (above left) £30 from http://www.asos.com/ which are very similar to the Christian Louboutin ones priced at £360, the colour reminds me of opal fruits, (or starburst as they are now called) although i am a little mad!

Sing along now, 'opal fruits, made to make your mouth water', i think the sun has gone to my head!

Great to add a bit of colour to an otherwise plain coloured outfit.

I would wear with flared jeans or a pleated skirt for that real 70's feel.

Summer summer summertime!

Horray!!!! it looks as though summer is finally here ladies, so it's time to start talking swimwear.

Hopefully your lucky enough to be going somewhere exotic this summer, but if not there's always the garden, or if your brave enough, (and don't mind the odd teenage boy geering at you), your local park. but with bikini's as lovely and as on trend as these from http://www.oli.co.uk i think you'll be more than happy to strip off.
