Here are you invites to three great online designer web sites for great designer sales.
We love Carrie, Miranda, Samantha, and Charlotte, but the real stars of the Sex and the City 2 are the often over the top clothes, rumored to have cost $10 million. Yes - million! So watch and drool at the parade of Chanels , Pradas, Diors, and Christian Louboutins or laugh at some of the really over top stuff. But leaving aside the $200,000 necklaces, the $2,000 purses, and the $900 dollar shoes, there are some great dresses and terrific sunglasses featured in the film, that are not totally in the shopping stratosphere. And if you like the look, you can usually shop it for less too. So pour yourself a cosmo, and checkout a few highlights of some of the pieces we like. We’ve tracked down where to buy them too – maybe it’s time for a little splurge?
Sex and the City Fashion Trends
Purple, Pink, Yellow, and Orange
Not a color combo we would imagine, but somehow, the look works on Carrie. And this cute and flirty, Halston Heritage purple cocktail dress, while not for every tomato, can definitely work for tomatoes with good legs, and a young attitude. The dress is $435 and is available at stores like Neiman Marcus and, Bloomindales and online too. (At least until the movie comes out.) And we have to say, Carrie's hot pink Christian Louboutin Sylvia HoBo bag is to die for - as is the $1800 price tag, which would send Mr. Tomato into cardiac arrest as he strangled us for bringing this baby home. But we did find a fun “sort of look alike, featured left, for $22.99 at Target.
The Little White Dress
Our gal SJP is now the creative director for Halston Heritage, a new line of reasonably priced vintage inspired clothes, like this little white dress, which we love, and its $325 price tag. Available online at Bloomingdales. And we’re sure that most tomatoes could beautifully accessorize the LWD without the $198,000 Solange Azagury-Partridge gemstone necklace that’s adorning Sarah’s little neck, and the $1500 Chanel clutch. But we have to say, we are lusting after the $525 sunglasses from Mykita & Bernhard Wilhelm. Buy them online.
You’re on your own for the vintage necklace.

The Sex and City “Carrie” Flat
But you can find this adorable “Carrie” inspired foldup flats that you can throw in your handbag when your feet can’t stand those stilettos a second longer. And at under $65, they might be the best Sex and the City fashion inspired bargain you’ll find. Get a pair now at the HBO Store.
