Bedside Reading — "Sex And The City 2"

OK, maybe titling this post bedside "reading" is a little generous — it's all about the looking, actually more like gazing longingly at fabulous clothes and shoes.

I never really got into "Sex And The City." Saw the first few episodes and the last, and I was fine with that. When the movies came out, I didn't rush out to see them. Months after the movie's release, the first SATC "lookbook" was on the sale table at Urban Outfitters. It was $5. Generally, I don't pass up anything marked down to $5. It's a personal rule.

Still hadn't seen the movie, but it was such fun to flip through the pages and see all those gorgeous outfits and how Patricia Field put things together. Same holds true for the latest book (which is available on Amazon for not quite $10). It's like the ultimate fashion mag. I even have a few things in my closet that could duplicate the feel of some of SJP's very, very casual outfits.

My favorite piece from SATC 2 — the John Galliano newsprint dress. I have a fondness for newsprint. Apparently John Galliano has a line of underwear with the same motif. I dunno for for $89, I want people to see the piece.

Good thing underwear as outerwear is popular - people can peek at your cami if you let them!

Thanks for sharing the info about these lookbooks - my sis is a super-big SATC fan, these would make a fun gift!

And if you're looking for newsprint dress, I saw a tank dress version on a site called Flirt Clothing - yeah, I know, sometimes one site leads you to another, and before you know it, you're at a place called Flight Clothing.
