Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Sarah Jessica Parker is a Beauty in Blue

Sarah Jessica Parker will forever be a fashion icon because of Sex and the City, and I’m totally okay with that. I love that SJP has a quirkier sense of style than a lot of older actresses tend to. She’s not afraid to take risks, and while sometimes they don’t pay off, most of the time she ends up rocking visually captivating and stylish looks.

I think blue is one of the few colors where you can get away with combining two different shades without looking like a total disaster. The teal and the navy complement each other very well, creating a rich, textured look. And both pieces are super versatile. I’m especially obsessed with navy dresses because they are generally professional enough for the office but still chic enough for the bar. A bright red bag adds an interesting twist, while the brown pumps are a neutral addition. Toss on some of your favorite costume jewelry to add a more eccentric flair. I love that this is a little offbeat without being excessively gauche and over-the-top. It can be a delicate balance, but SJP has mastered it with this look.

      Apparently SJP hangs out all the time in a cafe on my campus. And I NEVER see her. I think a little stalking is in order.

      I adored the tv show. loved the first movie. Hated the snoced at least that part where they went to the middle east. It was so shallow. The clothes had more import than the story. Don’t get me wrong the clothes are important, but they should complement the storyline. Instead, when in the middle east, the clothes were so outrageous that it was unbelievable.And the absolute worse offense was Samantha’s storyline. the way they handled menopause was deplorable. Also, she was supposed to be a savvy business woman. who can handle anything with style. Instead, they showed that a woman in menapouse is a uncontrolable hysterical freak of nature that loses all touch with reality. That was truly the most offensive part of the snoced movie.So, it it is more of the tv show or the first movie fine, bring it on. If it is going to continue with these grotesque caricatures of what maturing women are like then forget about it. I’d rather watch reruns of the Golden Girls.
