SJP: Steal her style

It is pretty hard to imitate the wardrobe of Sarah Jessica Parker, unless you have £220 spare for a Halston Heritage dress, as pictured above.

But fear not my frugal fashionistas as Dorothy Perkins have a Halston lookalike dress for only £40.

Now that Sex and the City 2 fever has died down most magazines haven’t spotted this cutie so pick one up now before they sell out.

Lunchtime fix: Jade nails

For around £13 pick up this gorge Chanel Jade green nail polish from Selfridges. Rihanna is already a fan of the summery shade and it will lighten up any dull work day.

New Look summer sale: Best picks

With every sale therein lies a dilemma: what items can I purchase which will be wearable for seasons to come and not just an impulse buy for now?

To help you with this trauma I have selected the best bits of New Look’s fabulous 50% off sale which will take you through to Autumn/ Winter 2010.

Spotty Paris Crop Top

Crop tops have been the creme of the high street for Spring/ Summer 2010 but once the sun has gone don’t banish your crops to the back of your wardrobe. This £5 crop reduced from £12 can be worn with a longer top underneath for a sport luxe feel or work it with a high-waisted skirt with just an inch of midriff showing for a sexy yet sophisticated look.

 Cork Platform

These cork platforms are half price at £15 reduced from £30. They are extra leg lengthening so would be ideal with tailored city shorts. For Autumn work with 3/4 harem pants for a more casual look.

Peacock Feather Necklace

This peacock feather necklace is a steal at £5 reduced from £15. Over the summer months contrast with tribal patterns and once winter hits this necklace will provide a dash of colour to your favourite LBD.

Happy sale hunting

Katy or Cheryl – Which judge had more style-factor?

X Factor

Continuing the theme of guest judges while Danni Minogue is on maternity leave, singer Katy Perry stepped in last week for the X-Factor auditions in Dublin.

Two fashionista’s sat on one desk? A battle was bound to ensue but who won the X-Factor style stakes: Katy or Cheryl?

Cheryl Cole

Cheryl worked a military style jumpsuit and a belt that cinched in her enviable waist. However, as Cheryl has been a devoted fan of military chic for a while now it seems like we have seen this look before many times – try something new Chezza!

 

Milking it: Katy Perry makes a grand entrance to the X Factor auditions

Katy wore a metallic shift dress contrasted with slick fuchsia heels which provided a pop of colour (not to mention they matched her lipstick).

Whose style do you prefer: Cheryl’s militant look or Katy’s glitzy frock?
