Come On, Tell Me Everything....and a Giveaway!

I rarely find myself in front of the television these days but in the past, there have been a few shows I have enjoyed enough to make an impression on me. I always seem to catch the fever for certain programs after they are off the air and can be found on DVD, allowing me to watch a series at my own pace, usually in the wee hours of the night, when the house is quiet and I have alone time.
One of those shows that kept me company after midnight, during the first few months after I had my son, was 'Sex and the City'. Of course, the big draw for me was to check out the wardrobes of the 'fab four' and see what kind of magic costume designer Patricia Field had up her sleeve. Never left disappointed by what I saw, I became a fan of Ms. Field's, who also served as costume designer for 'Hope and Faith', 'Ugly Betty' and 'The Devil Wears Prada'.

Since blogger-land has been a buzz lately with SATC2 talk and the movie premiering in theaters last night, I thought I would come to you my friends, to give me what I need, a little taste of what Ms. Fields has in store for us this time. I know secondhand information is never as good as seeing it for myself, but since I haven't seen a film in the last little while that didn't entail a cast of ogres or meatballs falling from the sky, I figure I've got to get the goods from somewhere.

So tell me......

What fabulous shoes was Carrie wearing?

How cute were Charlotte's outfits (my personal favourite!)?

What kind of chic accessories was Samantha sporting this time around?

And what has Miranda done with that gorgeous red hair??

Now to prove I can give as good as I can take, I have a fabulous giveaway lined up for you. One of my favourite accessories that graced Carrie Bradshaw's wardrobe in the t.v series were the gorgeous Dulken and Derrick flower pins she casually threw on a t-shirt or LBD, making anything she wore 'very Carrie'!

We have a Dulkin and Derrick 'Pink Poppy' flower pin to give to one lucky reader!

This giveaway has been graciously sponsored by Blue Onion Marketplace, purveyors of such lovelies as the Dulken and Derrick flower pins, Pasotti Ombrelli hats and umbrellas, Kenneth Jay Lane jewelry, and the luxe Globe-trotter suitcases, just to name a few!

Heya! Fabulous post! I'm planning on seeing the movie next week or so. Can't wait! Don't you just love those flower-embellishments Carrie wears?

I suppose I like Charlotte the most, because her style resembles mine a bit! She's so perfectly poised and elegant.

Your follower,

Carrie is my fave for a variety of reasons...the way that she pushes the envelope of style, her juxtapositions of garments, her independent strong personality, her devotion to her open heart, honesty, and her falir for fun and adventure!

Her personality seemed to be at the core of the show...obviously somewhat semi auto biographical as Candace Bushnell....who, BTW has penned many witty and wonderful novels....if you have not read don't walk to your nearest bookshop or library!

I plan to see the film asap!

Thank you gracious Lily for hosting this giveaway!
