    Hello! 🙂
    I can't wait to see SATC2! I'll be going with my girls next weekend!
    I would be Charlotte, I've always liked her style and I'm sure I can put that together at Kohls!

    i'v e always been Charlotte…but love a mix of the others. my favorite buy is the carrie purple dress..she's a little too out there for me but i love her look SJP pulls it off so well. when carrie came home in that puple dress i was in love and i'm not a purple girl so the ELLE Ruffle dress on sale for $35.99 something i woudln't have to think twice about ….carollann64 at gmail dot com

    hi! i am definitely a carrie and use her as an inspiration for my everday wear (of course it's never as great as carrie's!). if i was to win the kohls gift card, i would definitely purchase the items for the more casual looks (the jeans and plaid shirt). it's so chic, yet super casual. i also luv those pink peep toes! maybe i would wear it all together! and if anyone hasn't seen the movie, they totally should. it's great!

    I'm a bit of a Miranda: stylish but not too edge. I'd wear the Dana Buchman Leaf Kabuki tunic and Dana Buchman Solid Capri in black, and rock them with the Simply Vera Vera Wang Suneli Peep-Toe High Heels in black, and the Dana Buchman Callie Satchel in metallic gold. I'd top it off with the Simply Vera Vera Wang Semirimless Aviator Sunglasses.

    these shoes are so bright and beautiful
    ELLE Mariel Peep-Toe Dress Heels
    and the ELLE ruffle dot dress is fun.

    Tough decision!!! Normally, I'm a Charlotte, but I think every woman's wardrobe needs a pinch of Samantha style. Regardless of body type, every woman needs to feel gloriously sexy-beautiful occasionally, no? 🙂

    From your post, I liked the yellow, black and white dress. But who knows? Samantha style is not safe or predictable. Maybe when I get to Kohl's, I'll surprise you…and even myself.

    Hello! Long time reader, first time commenter. I am most def. a Miranda in terms of personality (professional academic), and in terms of the fashion that I currently wear to teach, I would say that I most resemble her. I wear a lot of blacks and browns and am fairly conservative in terms of makeup and hair because I never really learned how to do it well and because, as a grad student, I don't have a lot of money to experiment with “just for fun” looks. All of my clothes need to double between work and play. However, if I were to win the gift card, I would use it to make my first foray into Carrie territory! I would buy something with some drama and some glamor, something that, while out of place in the classroom, would allow me to stand out in a crowd when I go out with my best girl friend, my sister in law.

    Thanks for the fun contest!

    PS: I would choose the Elle dress under Carrie's label to start and maybe mix in the Elle Cardigan. I would love to find a big stripy purple and gray skirt to go under it like Carrie is wearing in the picture!

    Just found your blog and am loving it! Fashion-loving college girls need all the help they can get in tough times.

    I'm definitely a Carrie because I tend to dress in very girly, flirty outfits on a daily basis. When i go out with my man, though, I channel Samantha who I see as more of a vixen.

    What I would buy:

    The studded dress you chose is fierce for a night out!

    & I would be tempted by this cutesy dress for afternoon tea with the girls <3

    I would be Carrie and I would use the gift card to buy the flannel, jeans, and heels outfit. I live in Santa Cruz, CA and that's about the extent of our dressing up, but hey, it's cute and it works!


  25. Tracy

    June 3, 2010 at 12:16 am

    This is a great giveaway. I love your blog. The movie was great, and I somehow feel like my fashion is more similar to Miranda than anyone else. It's a mix of Carrie and Charlotte in my opinion.

    I would purchase the Candies Asymmetrical Top paired with great skinny jeans and lots of gold jewelry.

    Thanks for giveaway.

    I would create a new outfit based on Carrie's style. From the Kohl's website I choose the Heart & Soul Colorblock dress in black, teal, and green. TO accesorize I would pick the candie's black/nude paper fedora, a Mudd floral eternity scarf, and 1928 olive colored earrings. FROM your pieces I would take the green SONOMA life + style Wooden Beaded Flex Bracelet and the Simply Vera Vera Wang Signature Wedge Flip-Flops, but in gold instead of purple.

    and I would look FABULOUS!

    I am a mix of Samantha and Charlotte. More of a Charlotte at work and definitely more Samantha After work.

    Thank you for the Look for Less article. The yellow halter dress for Samantha was my favorite. Oh and the shoes-“Shoes for everyone!”

    I can't wait to get to Kohls 🙂

  34. katidyd

    June 3, 2010 at 3:33 am

    I would say I'd probably be a Miranda with some Charlotte because, honestly, I tend to be kind of standard (and boring) in my clothing (which is what I equate with Charlotte). Would love to win the gift card.

    I'd be sexy Samaantha and get the IZ Byer California Halter Satin Dress and the Candie's Coco Peep-Toe High Heels!

    As a side note, I was there in NYC the first day of filming for SATC2…I saw SJP walking in that gorgeous white dress and Louboutins for take after take! It was unreal! I ADORE their fashion!

    My personality is a mix of all of them, but I'm probably most like Carrie. I love her style the best! I'd love some flirty fun summer dresses and cute wedges and heels for this fashion season. I'd love to win this giftcard because I love Kohls! I would also throw on a lot of cute accessories to top off my look.

    After seeing the movie I have to say that I am a Miranda! She always looked put together & she had on great prints throughout the movie.

    I really like your picks for Miranda ..I like the third outfit idea best but I would change it up a little to have some pattern like she did in the movie.

    -I would try to find all white pants
    -I would get a printed flowy top like this:
    -& I would wear it with some black wedges like these

    I would be Carrie all the way! My style is quirky and a little bit boho/a lotta' bit vintage/very colorful.

    I would love to rock the Elle Colorblock Mixed-Media Dress with Apt. 9 Knee-Highs in Orchid Mist. I'd have to pair that with some statement shoes, so I'd go with the Dana Buchman Brinkley Wedge Sandals. They have a fun zebra print wedge heel and patent uppers! Finally – for that extra infusion of color, I'd throw in the Rosetti Ava Tote in Mustard. As a veggie, I love that it's faux leather!

    I feel like now is the appropriate time to mention that I'm a lowly graduate student working a barely-paid summer internship at a nonprofit. Shameless plea, I know! haha Thanks for the great giveaway, lady!!!
