My perfect SATC dress...

I'm always freezing in movie theaters, and have been known to carry blankets in with me to top off my usual movie ensemble of jeans, boots, and a heavy sweater. But when the most fashionable movie ever opens, and when a friend is throwing a little party to celebrate (think cosmos to start the festivities, movie screening, and a great dinner at Wasabi Bistro to debrief on all of the fashion and gossip), you can't just show up in a big wool sweater!

So, I found my perfect dress this week, and Mr. Louboutin makes some pretty ok shoes that go with it. My job for the next few weeks? Convincing my husband to sell his car so I can buy all of this gorgeousness. So far, he's not going for it. Even when I pointed out that since Luly Yang is in Seattle, we'd be helping the local economy.

OMG that dress is *amazing*. I dare not ask how much it is.

And Wasabi is *awesome*.

I like the shoes of course! I almost put those ones on my blog but I opted for the other sparkly ones. Can't wait for SATC!

Anandi-since you (kind of) asked...$3200. See why we'd have to sell off a vehicle first?

Sarah-I'm LOVING the ones you picked! Hm...can I change my mind on my perfect outfit?

omg $3200? that's like multiple times the cost of my wedding dress, which is the most expensive piece of clothing i own.
