Sarah Jessica Parker/Manolo Blahnik Collaboration

Before I even start this post, I have to admit that I have never really liked Sarah Jessica Parker.... (cue the outrage).. I mean of course I love Carrie Bradshaw, after being forced to watch Sex and the City by Chinah at least 100 times, how can I not?

I started disliking her when I saw a picture of her at The Devil Wears Prada premiere in 2006 wearing this...

And I absolutely hated it! It's been 7 years and I'm only just getting over my SJP-Fashion-Fear.. they say first impressions last a lifetime?

But then on course the Sex and the City films came into my life and outfits such as this started to change my impression of her...

My favourite of her casual outfits... (me and Chinah love her socks!)
And now more to the point, 15 years after she became Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah Jessica Parker is teaming up with Manolo Blahnik to create a range of shoes and bags deemed "old-school" and "different" by the fashionista herself.

The collection will take inspiration from Charles Jourdan and Maud Frizon, who were both known for their outlandish and colourful designs. Even though their original career launches were 40 years apart, they were huge influences for their times, and still are now!

Being Carrie Bradshaw meant SJP must have developed a love for shoes, and certainly a far more extensive knowledge.

Here she is pictured arriving at the Louis Vuitton show at Paris Fashion Week 2012 in one of my favourite of her outfits...

Clearly ahead of the fashion game in white pointed courts, which are absolutely everywhere at the moment!

The collection will be available through Nordstrom next year.

This week for my lust list I chose a pair of Chloe Green wedges. I am obsessing over her new collection in Topshop at the moment, so I knew this had to be on my lust list this week!!!

Only choosing one pair for my lust list was a hard task but I chose these suede espadrille wedges, as I think they will look so cute this summer. Everyone needs a pair of show-stopping shoes in their suitcase, and I think I will make these mine!

These are a part of CJG range at Topshop, which is stocked with stunning heels for this Summer!! You must check it out. All CJG shoes come with a signature green "charms" sole and a note from Chloe letting you know how to take care of your new CJGs, which adds to my love of her collection.

I MUST get my green soles for this Summer!

I was flicking through this week's Grazia the other day and came across this AMAZING clutch bag from LYDC London that I genuinely have to have. The price tag is so low and the colours are perfect for summer, I can't wait to order it!

The Barons Court Box Clutch Bag by LYDC in Neon Yellow- £18.99

The only clutch bags I own are in black, which are great for Winter but not so great for Summer. The bag also comes in pink, black and orange, but this colour is by far my favourite.

First Sushi Experience...

I'm known as a pretty fussy eater, so when me and Holly went to Yo Sushi yesterday it was a shock that I actually loved the food!

I've never eaten sushi before because I've never really liked fish, but I somehow managed to avoid that...

The way Yo Sushi works is pretty cool too, you get to press a little button that makes the most adorable noises when you want to order, and you get little taps for water on each individual table!

Me loving the little tap maybe a bit too much...
We ordered some hot food off the menu but couldn't wait so took a plate off the conveyor belt to share. We have no idea what was inside but it was really nice!

The powder on the outside was a little spicy but we could just about manage it, and the seaweed and rice were amazing!
