Recessionista: The SJP Look for Less


Ever since Sarah Jessica Parker hit the pavement for the Sex And the City film sequel, people have slowly been losing their minds over all of her Carrie Bradshaw couture costumes. We have no idea what's going on with the plot, but we love the way she looks. Always. Every detail -- from head to toe.

But the reality is that most of the costumes are real clothing with really high price tags, which are deliriously outrageous. Luckily, on a midnight online surf, i found this shirt on the Forever 21 site that resembles one of SJP's many looks that I found so sweet, modern and fresh. And, bottom line: It's only $14.80!

You can pair this shirt like Patricia Field styled Parker -- with a light-wash cropped jean and lilac studded high heels for sexy country or a pencil skirt or leggings to be a bit more refined. I also love that if you like the look but not this exact color, there are choices in red, fuschia, green and yellow.

The Laura Plaid shirt is a cute and casual button-down featuring two chest pockets and short sleeves with smocked detail.
