Sarah Jessica Parker has created a signature look and fragrance that is ultra-feminine and timeless. tastefully hip. This, in my opinion is the best perfume ever created by a celebrity (I'm not a big fan of celeb fragrances). The perfume has been described as one which blends a scent of pure innocence with the exotic nature of a precious oil and the sophistication of a fine perfume. That is no lie. This one is a must-have if you love all things feminine, elegant and classic. I'm sad because I've got about 2 sprays left till it's finished.
Chemistry: Top notes sparkle with Fresh Mandarin, Bergamot and Radiant Rosewood rushing into Lush Lavender and Crisp Apple Martini. Middle Notes Blossom with Exotic Patchouli, the perfume of paper whites and creamy orchid. Bottom Notes Seduce and Linger with Sensuous Cedar, White Maber, Sultry Musk and Woods.
I reckon 'Elle' is the perfect name for this fragrance as it conjures up the right images of what it really is. I adore the design of the bottle - very chic. An audacious and feminine fragrance for a cosmopolitan girl - vibrantly feminine and ultra contemporary. It fuses woody and floral notes to create a perfume for a woman with no reservations.
Chemistry: A blend of Peony, Pink Berries and Patchouli
Euphoria By Calvin Klein was launched as a Fun, Enticing (I hate that word, lol!) Scent for Women. I love it for not being too over-powering and it's a really great fragrance in a humid environment. I think this is going to be my present to myself on my birthday. Apparently, the bottle design was inspired by an orchid about to bloom.
Chemistry: The Beautiful Fragrance has top notes of Pomegranate, Persimmon, and a Lovely Lush Green Accord. The Heart then blends into a sensual Lotus Blossom and black Orchid. Bottom notes are Amber, Violet, Cream And Woods.
'Simple yet sensual, comforting yet captivating'. This one is a strong and bold woman's perfume. I imagine a powerful and sophisticated business mogul. She has a mysterious and seductive nature. I'm not too familiar with Armani's fragrances and I hear their women's perfumes are not as popular as the males (this one was created from the male version) but this is a good attempt.
Chemistry: Orange flower note with fresh ginger accents and the caress of honey-sandalwood accord.

Christian Louboutin Alti Leather Pumps
Faith Red Patent Heels
Tory Burch Reva Patent Flats
Personally, I find boot-cut jeans the hardest to wear. They are best suited to cowboy boots or knee-high boots which is fine if you are in live where the sun don't shine (lol!). The wider leg will allow the shaft of the jeans to hang comfortably over the boots. However, these jeans are not very good for those who prefer tucking jeans into boots (skinnies are perfect for that) because the excess material will keep spilling over the boots.
My advise for fashionistas in warmer climates would be to try strappy sandals.
Georgina Goodman Suede boots
WIDE-LEGGED or FLARED JEANS
Fendi Tri-Colour Slingbacks
Via Spiga Priscilla from Piperlime
Tory Burch Cerise Canvas Wedge (Perfect for Summer!)
Thick heeled- court shoes generally look good with straight cut jeans. Depending on the length (if they are ankle swingers), flat pumps are also acceptable. I think they look a little weird with boots.
Karen Millen Leather Platforms

Designers featured sheer fabrics in a multitude of ways to create ultra sexy and feminine outfits without the wearer having to sacrifice all their dignity. The Spring/Summer 09 runway collections feature lots of cool and sexy sheer pieces, layers, and delicate, feminine draping. Soft and feminine or hardcore sex-kitten? Whatever your taste, there's bound to be a piece you'll love.
