Girls Day & Night Out: Sex and The City Tour + Sex and The City 2 Movie

The Number 2. It represents Sex and the City part 2. It's also 2 people in love - every one of our leading ladies found their other halves in this sequel (with the exception of Samantha of course...1 is never enough for her . 2 - Me & my friend Amy went on the Sex and the City Tour in NYC together...compliments of generous people at Screentours. 2 is also the number of times I watched the SATC2 movie. Most importantly, 2 is the number of SATC characters that exist inside of me - Carrie & Charlotte. Are you a Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte or Samantha?

The tour was very fun & well worth it if you are a Sex and the City fan! The itinerary was great...but the best part was that I got to meet and take a photo with one of the cast of Sex and the City - Steve!!! Yes, you heard it right! Miranda's husband Steve (played by David Eigenberg). Pure coincidence or Deliberate publicity stunt? Who cares. I got to meet a celebrity anyway. Wanna see proof? Scroll down...

Me & Steve outside Buddakan NYC (Why does he have to close his eyes when the camera clicked???)

So what did I think of the SATC2 movie after I met one of the cast? It was absolutely entertaining...whether you are a fan like me or not...and you don't have to watch it twice like I did.

Recessionista Review: Jean Paul Gaultier for Target

The name Jean Paul Gaultier a.k.a JPG has been in my fashion dictionary for a very very long time. I have not personally owned anything from JPG till now. All thanks to Target again! Before I went to Target today, I did my research and there were many pieces that I loved and have a high chance of adding to my wardrobe. Then again, with every Designer for Target Collection, there is a hit or miss syndrome.

My verdict:
1. Pass on all the dresses in this collection unless you have lots of cash to spare. They were all either plasticy, papery, or yucky polyestery material....I don't even know a word that can describe it, but you get the idea. The floral eyelet one here that I loved a lot was also disappointing. If you don't believe me, go see them for yourself.
2. If you have $199 to spend, definitely get the leather jacket. It is comparable to the contemporary labels you see at Saks or Neiman Marcus.
3. Don't just trust the photos you see on, try it on! That was how I found that this nautical inspired top was a gem! The detailing on it is unique, and the stripes are so JPG! For $19.99, it was a steal! Great with leggings too I must say!
My 2 winning pieces out of the 8 pieces I tried on from this collection. I will not post the photos of the remaining 6 pieces because they were too horrid to be seen by the general public.
Not to be worn together but I did it to save time

So what did I get from the Jean Paul Gaultier for Target collection?
Jean Paul Gaultier for Target Anchor Braid Knit Top - Navy/Cream $19.99
I will seriously consider getting the leather moto jacket...if they still have any left....which then means that it was meant to be mine, but it was hard for me to swallow that $199 price today.

NYFW - To Go or Not to Go

At first I was pondering if I should attend some of the shows I have been invited to by some close acquaintances in the fashion industry. But due to my current commitments, I might not be able to make it to those events. Bummer right? But I will try to provide some coverage on New York Fashion Week.

With the weather the way it has been. Weatherman predicts one thing and another thing happens. I am keeping my fingers crossed for my friends in the fashion industry that they will make it to NYFW safely and timely...and of course good weather in the east coast...which will benefit all of mankind whether or not they decide to sit under tents in a gorgeous gorgeous park. :)
