For the past two weeks, our mailbox has been inundated with Sex and the City "Looks for Less" pitches. As in, 'Hey, we can help anyone look like Carrie Bradshaw at a fraction of the price, using dresses from these off-price retailers.' We don't want to piss anybody off, but we just want to scream, ARE YOU KIDDING? Even a blind person would know that shiz isn't SATC-worthy.
So we're taking matters into our own hands?with the help our our friends at Decadestwo, who've put together a sweet window display in honor of the movie. We were skipping around on Melrose last week, and this display pretty much stopped us in our tracks. We heart! Besides taking photos, we got details: the dress is Sonia Rykiel ($750), and the jewelry is all costume, but it's amazing. The pearl choker is $150, the gold fly chain is $100, the enamel bangle is $95, the charm bracelet is $75, and the coral bangle is $90. The dress may not be cheap-cheap, but in the end, when all of the hulabaloo dies down, you'll have a gorgeous Sonia Rykiel dress that you'll wear for years to come.
And how's this for a cherry on top of your Sex sundae: Decadestwo is having a sale this Friday and Saturday. 20% off the whole store. All the labels you love: Gucci, Prada, Balenciaga, Dior, Chanel, and more. It's this Friday and Saturday—so you can find the perfect little thing for when you go to see the movie.
