Back in April, I came across from sneak preview images from the newest CW series, The Carrie Diaries, based on Candace Bushnell’s novel, starring newcomer, AnnaSophia Robb, as the iconic Carrie Bradshaw in 1984. I was a little hesitant to watch the video below, but I’m glad I did. Of course the show, which premieres in January, won’t be the same as the original HBO show with the incomparable Sarah Jessica Parker, darling Kristin Davis, daring Kim Cattrall, & brilliant Cynthia Nixon.
We get to see a different side of the beloved character who still inspires red carpets & runways even after the show’s end in 2004, the first film in 2008, & its sequel in 2010. Check out my previous post, sharing the fashionable images from The Carrie Diaries, which make me wanna break out my bright turquoise pointed toe pumps! Happy Styling!
This is no trick, but it is a treat. I could’ve posted about sexy maid costumes or how to recreate Carrie Bradshaw’s style, but in lieu of a little hurricane named Sandy, I wanted to share something more realistic, but as equally as delightful. I haven’t written about Pippa Middleton‘s style in quite some time, but once I saw this chic purple & black ensemble, I knew I had to find the pieces to reimagine it while on a budget.
Some people get a power suit to bring out their confidence, but I’m all about the power dress. H&M is one of my favorite stores for basics, but I always find a chic dress or dressy item whenever I least expect it. I’m not only a big fan of the styles sold @H&M, but I even shopped there & stuffed my suitcase while I was in Italy in January. Just take a look at the ensemble below, which rings up for under $100 (before taxes)!
Black & white is a my favorite color combination (as seen in my previous Color Me Style post) & it’s extra special here punched up with some gold accessories & sparkling splash. The dress ($34.95) can go from work to happy hour with the transformation of a blazer for some bangles, but I love the simplicity & possibilities that this dress offers. The shoes ($34.95) add some texture to this mod look, but they can also be worn under your favorite trousers & a cardigan, or with any LBD for a hot date night. To accessorize, I’ve selected the necklace ($5.95) which is also available in silver, if you are looking for a way to frame your face with the right kind of neckline. The 3-pack rings ($6.95) compliment the animal-inspiration in the shoes, but also bring out the black details of the dress. To finish it off, the sparkling bag ($12.95) is spacious & flirty for any evening occasion & is also sold in white.
If you’ve been following Style Darling on Instagram (@MissAlissaL), then you’ve seen a stylish array of tights & heels / booties combinations that I’ve been wearing for work. Some of my favorite tights come from Payless, Kohl’s, & New York & Company, but for today’s post, I’ll be talking about the selection of tights found @Charlotte Russe, which is currently on sale Buy One, Get One 50% off!
For the last three weeks, I’ve been sharing the latest video campaign from Stuart Weitzman, directed by James Franco, & starring Dancing with the Stars beauty Petra Nemcova. The most recent, & finale, of the vignettes hit the web & now Style Darling has it for you! Check out the full-length short film, featuring each episode, & then some! Of course, this all happens to a revved up remake of Patsy Kline’s “Walking After Midnight,” which I haven’t been able to get out of my head all month long!
What do you think about the ad campaign? Are you a fan of Stuart Weitzman designs? Do you like Franco’s point of view for the heels? Happy Styling!
