SJP By Sarah Jessica Parker Now At Nordstrom!



The newest most exciting celebrity designer collection, now at Nordstrom, is SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker.  So many people have loved her style since she was Carrie on Sex In The City.  She's been followed everywhere by the paparazzi and we're often treated to pictures of her style roaming the streets of New York City.  Have you ever imagined yourself in her shoes?  Now you can literally experience such a thing.  Let's take a look at some of the things being offered in the SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker collection.

Nordstrom, shoes, purses, handbags, trench coats

The first thing you should know is that the shoes aren't in every Nordstrom store.  They are online but the stores that are initially showcasing the collection are listed at the bottom of this page.

I was really hoping there would be a shoe named Carrie and there is.  You see how it is a quintessential Carrie Bradshaw type of pump in purple, nude or black.  The Nordstrom website even gives complete looks with the collection to illustrate how to style the items.  For instance, here's the Carrie and styled with the SJP trench coat.

Here we have the Maud Sandal, which comes in a variety of colors, and a way to style it.

You really need to check out the full collection.  There are purses, sandals, flip flops, espidrills, and more.  On the Nordstrom website are videos, a blog with SJP,  and a Pinterest contest to win a collection of SJP shoes worth $2000!  There is so much information online, you really should spend some time looking at it all.

Below are the locations where the shoes are currently displayed:

It's pretty exciting to look at.  Shoes are always fun, don't you think?  I couldn't wear as high a heel as Sarah Jessica Parker, but I could do sandals and flats, for sure.

Do you think the shoes are representative of her style?  What do you like the look of the best?

Styled My Converse Differently Today

I thought it might be cute to tie my Converse All-Star sneakers together with the tank top I was wearing by adding matching ankle socks.  These probably aren't the best pictures.  Everything came out a little dark today.  I was wearing denim capris, a hot pink tank top with a bright blue sweater, hot pink ankle socks and my Converse All Stars in a dusty blurple with pink.

I'd call this really casual but oh so comfortable.  I've always loved Converse.   I used to wear black high tops when I was in grade school.  I'm sure everyone thought I was a wierdo then.  It's awesome when a trend comes around that you work when you were the greatest dork in school.

How do you style your Converse?

Outfit Of The Day - How To Layer Affordable Clothing




Today on a little old trip to the Mayo for some poking and prodding, I wore the outfit below.  I'm being forced to learn that you can put together a really fantastic outfit on a budget.  This one is very affordable.

The first thing you have to know is Old Navy has some awesome in style affordable clothes.  They have talls on line.  TALLS IN SHIRTS AND DRESSES, people!!!!  How often can you find tall shirts?  Like never!!!  That turned me into an Old Navy lover for life.  This sweater in grey and the grey and white dress come from Old Navy.  I bought them off the rack so they're not talls, but the length is fine.  I probably could have used a tall in the dress but I needed it now.  So there ya go.  The list price is $39.00 but like I said, there's always a sale.  Sometimes it's better online and sometimes in the store so watch.  The dress has a list price of $29.94 and see above reference what I paid.

I love this necklace!  I got it at Patty's Closet in Anchorage for just $12!!  I'm going to show you this store in a post soon and tell you why you have to shop there!

How to layer clothing, Old Navy, Kohls, Patty's Closet, boots, Nordstrom, Sweater, dress

I have to tell you, I don't like the folds I got from the neck fusion.  I understand why it's there now because I read the surgeon's notes today.   Yikes, it was a terrible mess after I fell on the ice.  Wow!  So, ew, I was in a neck brace for almost nine months, the hard collar kind...well, if you're a regular reader, you saw it before, all blingy and pretty.  But this time, my neck didn't turn out pretty.  Anyway....UGH!

The belt is silvered and is from a pair of shorts I got at Kohl's a few years ago.  I always take the belts out and put them aside.  LISTEN UP!!!  If you get some belt or accessory on a clothing item that you're not going to use at the time, just set it aside because you never know when it's going to be the piece that you need to finish off your outfit.  Am I right or am I right????

The leggings are from Fred Meyer.  Again, if you're in the PNW, you know how often things go on sale and about the weekly coupons.  It pays to wait, if you can, until your item is in the sale group unless you need it that night.  If you're in the Lower 48 and Hawaii, you can find the same leggings at the Nordstrom Rack.  They're called Legend and they're under $10 on sale at both places.  Normal price at Fred Meyer is $14.

And the boots >>>>> CRAZY SALE!!!  $60 on the Nordstrom Rack Sale side of the Nordstrom website.  I thought the original price was great, but $60!?!?!?!?!  Embellished with interest at the ankle and calf.  Take a look on the website and you can turn the boot around to see the detail.  Fantastic!!  And super duper comfortable.  I have two colors that I bought at full price.  Oh yes I did.

Those are the deets of this layered outfit.  Many of these items will be worn over and over during my time out of state.  Ok all of them.  You need them too!!!  The boots are almost sold out.  Get them if you can!!

How are you wearing your layers at this time of year?

(psst!  You'll be seeing me wearing makeup again soon!!!  oh, ugh, I know, right?  My latex blisters are almost healed after five months but I have a few that are still pretty deep.  *fingers crossed*  Until then, I will play with color via fashion.  But guess what?  I wore eyeshadow today!!!  WOOT!!!)

Check Out This Awesome Belt I Purchased At Patty's Closet in Anchorage

The belt is great and it will truly fit any size.  It matches the booties that I was wearing to a T.  I bought the belt at Patty's Closet in Anchorage, located at the Old Seward and 36th, by Johnny Chicago's.  You've got to go there.  You must.  It's required!

The dress is from Old Navy as is the sweater.  Leggings were purchased at Fred Meyer and are also available at the Nordstrom Rack.  And the two toned scarf...I think it came from Ross Stores.  And there ya go.  I need to get a good picture of the matching booties, also from Old Navy.  Very cool.  The belt pulls it all together.

If you're in the 907 and visit Patty's Closet website, our store is the one with the hot pink walls.  Awesome!!!  And, since Hawaii is our other Alaska, our sister state, you'll find one in Honolulu as well.  Have a check around the website until probably next week when I am able to get my blog post done.

Las Vegas People....in The Town Mall...have a ball!!

My Halloween Costume - A Snoopy T-shirt From Target.

I've always loved the Peanuts gang, and especially Snoopy.  I adore Snoopy so when I spotted this Tshirt at Target, I picked it up.  No brainer!!!

I've been wearing it a lot. Sometimes I'll pair it with my orange Mossimo boyfriend cardigan, also from Target, skinny jeans and boots.  It makes a fun fall fashion statement.
