Sex and the City makeover! R U excited?

 Is anyone out there who hasn't heard of or seen all or at least most of the episodes of this iconic fashion filled show? (I gotta say I'm not a fan of the movies however, I went to see them exclusively for the apparel:) ) And how about drooling over the clothes the girls were wearing? Ever whish you could look like one of them?
Well the good people over at  Warner Bros. have released a series of makeover videos- in honor of the Sex and the City2  DVD release- that will help you do just that. Take a look-see. 

Are you Carrie?

Or Miranda?

Or Charlotte?

Maybe Samantha?

So who do you relate to?

Anna Sui Fall Winter 2010/11

In Rachel Zoe's own words: "I die". Anna Sui in general but this collection in particular speaks so much to my aesthetic it's like she is designing for me. (I wish :)!) I love the silhouettes, I love the rich colors, the effortless femininity, the tights, the footwear, the bags, the accessories...need I go on?  I'd wear all of theses items in a heartbeat.

Needles to say, selecting my favorites was not easy to do, but since I love little dresses and find them to be very flattering for my figure (I like to show off my legs- probably the only part of my body that I like to show off...) I picked some of the dresses that I would kill for to have in my wardrobe.

For a quick view of the collection:

Do you like Anna Sui? How about this collection? Which are your favorite collections for fall? Looking forward to you comments.

Do you know how to choose the right jeans for your body type?

Well the good people over at the Thread will tell you how. And since every girl needs a perfectly fitting pair of jeans that will do wonders for any outfit I found this video to be very interesting.

Plaid jacket Tutorial

Do you like plaid? I'm usually all for monochromatic jackets but I found this great material that I just couldn't resist (especially at the bargain price of 3$) so I bought it, combined it with some red material I had fro some time and the result, well...I kinda love it

 I used a cardigan- that  has seen better days, and I was no longer wearing it but I love the silhouette- as a pattern- usually I use my old clothes as patterns.  This is the front of the jacket

 and the back

 I put the front and the back wrong sides facing and sewed them together with a running stitch

 I made a second jacket from the red material, which was going to be the lining. after the two jackets were done I put them over each other, wrongs sides facing, left an opening at the neckline and turned it inside out after having sewn them together.

the collar

again, wrong sides facing, the white lace that was going to show was sewn in between the two layers

 ...and for the closure of the jacket  I made a brooch from the same materials, using a safety pin to pin it in place. For a tutorial on how to make the flowers, you can check out this post

So long story short...this is my jacket. 

Do you like it?
