SATC Episode 2: Charlotte

This Park Avenue princess is certainly chic, but makes her statement with a more elegant, understated- and certainly more consistent- style than fashion risk-taker Carrie.
This simple, elegant dress from ASOS is the epitomy of understated elegance and is reminiscent of Charlotte's wardrobe.

Charlotte tempers the conservative style of her uptown pedigree with whimsical or girlie fashion choices that reflect her optimistic (some might say naive) world view. Her romantic sensibility often plays out in frills, pastel hues and floral motifs.
I love this satin pencil dress from Karen Millen, and I think Charlotte would too!

 Charlotte isn't the one to bare too much skin, but she still knows the power of her feminine form and often flirts it up with spaghetti straps here, flounces there. Every element of the outfit is always just so, even when she's going for weekend casual.
This dress from the Love concession at Topshop is perfectly feminine and flattering.

and this cardigan from Topshop is the perfect conservative finishing touch. Just add pearls!
Charlotte continues her feminine fashion sense with her demure footwear choices, guaranteed to match all of those carefully appointed ensembles to perfection.
These classically sophisticated kitten heels from Dune are the ultimate in sassy Charlotte style and perfect for every occasion.

And these mini mary-jane styles are fabulous for a more casual, weekend look.
In line with her fashion credo, Charlotte's not looking for anything too flashy in the bag category.
Classic shapes, simple totes and elegant shoulder bags are her rule of thumb. 
this simple, clean tote from Oasis is perfect for shopping or breakfast with the girls, and this satin clutch from Karen Millen is the icing on the cake for a flawless date night outfit.

So there you have it, we are half way through the Cheap Chic Sex and the City look!
Keep your eyes peeled for Samantha and Carrie, they're coming soon!

Bag a Bargain This Week!

Listen up lovelies as I've got a quickly here for all of you with shopping trips planned over the next few days!

H&M are giving out vouchers for 20% off one item in store when you register to the H&M fashion newsletter online. The offer's on until the end of May though there are rumours it may return in July so watch this space!

Once you register you'll receive the voucher in an email, it'll be valid one month from the registration date or until the end of the promo. You can only use the voucher once and on one item so be selective over said item! Perhaps a gorgeous bikini for that holiday you have planned or a summer dress (I hear the weather is going to vastly improve this week!).
I love this elegant leopard print maxi dress which is already only £14.99 without the discount!
I've already tried it on and it looks great loose and flowing as well as with a big thick belt to cinch in the waist!

Also, make sure you sign up to the American Apparel newsletter to get a 10% off voucher code.
It's a bit cheeky but you can up that discount to 15% by providing more information about yourself, just click on 'Tell us more' on your confirmation email, add your full address when prompted and you'll get a 15% off code via email.

One of my favourite items from there is this button up shirt in pink. Also available in other colours this shirt can be worn with almost everything and tied at the middle. 
Like a lot of their products it is unisex, which is good to know if you and your boyfriend like to match your clothes :)

Sorry but you'll have to be quick with this one as it ends this sunday (23rd May) but you can get 20% off in store and online at New Look. To get the discount in store simply print off this New Look voucher. To get it online use the code FFMAY10 at the checkout.
The voucher’s valid on full price items only. It excludes permanently reduced and promotional items, concession ranges, gift cards or vouchers and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers i.e. student discount. 
I love these floral shorts with brace detail. Dress then up or wear them casually with any of your favourite tops underneath!

And finally, fancy shoe lovers can get 10% off Aldo both in store and online by signing up to their online newsletter. Print off the voucher or use the code online. 

The 10% discount applies to regularly priced merchandise only, which is fine as they have some amazing styles in at the moment! 
That includes their version of the revival of the clog. These sky-high stunners are only £60 full-price so you'll have to fight me for them with the discount on top! Only joking... they're also available in brown!

Well that's my summer weekend wardrobe sorted! Bring on the sun!! Please!!!

Cheap Chic: The Sequel!!

Ok, I know it's lame that I haven't entered anything on this in ages! But I'm back! and just in time for the launch of THE most fashionable film yet (for the last 2 years anyway!).

Yes, that's right, Sex & the City 2 is released in 2 weeks which gives us just about enough time to get the right outfit for the most on-trend premier of 2010.

But if like Carrie Bradshaw (and me, if my recent entry rate is anything to go by) you have a pretty hectic lifestyle then keep on reading as I have scouted the most SATC-esque pieces from the humble high street for you today!

So if you're a Miranda, Charlotte, Samantha or a Carrie there's something for you all...

Miranda is generally as practical in her wardrobe decisions as she is in her career choices. From her tidy no-fuss short hair to her tailored work wardrobe, Miranda favours clean lines, neutral colours and classic looks. This simple yet sassy jacket from Topshop is a perfect match for her and can be worn with lots of different looks.

 But although she's a bit more buttoned-up than her friends, Miranda isn't left in the fashion dust. On weekends, she'll wear a simple, body-skimming dress, accessorised to perfection, just as naturally as she wears tailored suits during the week. 
This esh detail body-con dress from Oasis is very similar to a stunning outfit Miranda wore to a wedding in an early episode. The floral detail brings it right up to date!

From nine to five, Miranda is most comfortable in flawlessly fitting separates, appropriate for a partner in a law firm. 
This super-sophisticated dress from Karen Millen gives the impression of a blouse and skirt combination and its tailored shape is perfect for the office.

 And this structured trench from Oasis is great for Miranda's muted colour scheme. I love the frill detail as it gives this a feminine touch.

It's not business all the time though, so she'd probably go for something a little more daring underneath that suit. Anything that buttons up and resembles a conservative blazer until she takes off her jacket and shows a little more skin than expected is right up Miranda's street. 
This fabulous cropped jacket from Viyella is reminiscent or the bold prints Miranda wears and is ultra-versatile for a day to night look!  

When the sun goes down, she'd still maintain her Miranda-style polish and poise but loosen up a bit in a sexy slip dress.
This gorgeous blue gown from Wallis is a steal at £135 and is perfect for elegant dinner parties or (ahem) summer wedding?!

Anything with a plethora of inside zip pockets would appeal to a type-A personality like Miranda.  This one from Oasis is right on-trend with its metallic finish and perfect for a busy-body like Miranda!

A night on the town calls for something a little more refined, though, like a sleek clutch bag. With no frills attached, a leather envelope-style bag is just the kind of no-nonsense fashion statement that a Miranda type is looking for.  This one from ASOS is just the thing and is only £15!
Any shoe with a delicate sling back and a low kitten heel is perfect for Miranda's office ensemble. How about these simple yet stylish kitten-courts from Kurt Geiger?
 For an even sassier, more day-to-evening look, she'd probably opt for some more glamorous strappy heels, perhaps like these bronze beauties from Office.

On lazier days, Miranda would likely slip on flip-flops that still exude elegance. I love these suede corsage detail sandals from New Look. They are understated, which is perfect for Miranda, and can be teamed with many different looks throughout the summer.
So there is the first installment of my Sex & the City comeback entry!
I hope you enjoyed it.
Keep an eye out for key looks for Charlotte, Samantha and of course, Carrie!
