You know you loved the risque, HBO hit “Sex and the City” from 1998 to 2004. And then you enjoyed the two big-budget films, made in 2008 and 2010. Although the story lines were sometimes vain and contrived, the style NEVER disappointed.

All four main characters, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte York (Kristen Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) had their own unique style and take on fashion and accessories.

Samantha was all about the sex appeal, whereas Miranda upheld the chic businesswoman look. And Charlotte (my favorite), was always perfectly preppy and sweet. And then there was the fashion lover and risk taker, Carrie, who, especially in the second “Sex and the City” motion picture, took chances with her scarf accessories.

In “Sex and the City 2,” Carrie and the girls embark on a trip to the United Arab Emirates, in which the unrelenting sun beats down harder and hotter than any summer day in New York.

To help protect herself from the heat, while still remaining trendy and fashionable, Carrie dons a shimmering, striped turban after her and her gal pals arrive at the airport.

Later in the trip, the foursome, who are used to catching rides in limos and cabs, instead trek across the desert dunes on camels. Again, to protect themselves from the relentless heat, Carrie and Samantha, in particular, fashion head pieces and wraps to shield their faces from the afternoon rays.

Which Zazou scarf do you think would match each character’s personality?!

My personal picks include the following:

Carrie:

1102

1102 Chopstick and Noodle Scarf – This youthful, fresh scarf screams Carrie Bradshaw, and I think her small, gold “Carrie” necklace would look dashing underneath this wrap.

Samantha:

6394

6394 Palms Scarf – Inspired by her move to Los Angeles with Smith Jared, I believe the sun-loving Samantha would gravitate toward this resort-wear inspired accessory. While strolling along the California beaches, Sam could lightly drape this black and white piece over an equally chic black bikini, paired with a wide brimmed hat and round black sunglasses. Fabulous!

Charlotte:

797

797 Rose Scarf – Charlotte was always the hopeless romantic. She preferred walks through a vibrant garden in Central Park to walks of shame. Therefore, this beautifully rich, lovely red rose scarf would be perfect for Charlotte’s cheerful and loving personality.

Miranda:

1154

1154 Diagonal Dots Scarf – I think the caramel macchiato color combination would look beautiful next to Miranda’s fiery red hair.

Do you agree with my choices?

At the mere sight, touch, smell or mention of a rose, the beautiful balcony scene from William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” instantly blooms into my mind. And this luminous 6502 Painted Roses Wrap, patterned with precious, swirling roses, is no exception.

The black version of this scarf is pictured, but it is also available in mist blue and grey.

This exclusive print by Christopher Carroll has been placed on a wrap that measures in at 26″ by 76″ and is made from soft blended yarn. It wholesales for $18 and is from the Fall 2013 Zazou Collection.

Again, it has been named the 6502 Painted Roses Wrap, but, by any other name would look as sweet!

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling Zazou 22!

Hello little zebras! Today, July 30, 2013, is my 22nd birthday and my 12th day here at my Zazou and Sterling Styles internship. Therefore, the alternative title to this post could be Internship Day 12!

It has already been a busy morning. After arriving at 9:30 a.m., I changed the links on our Mail Chimp email blasts from venue information to show information. This means that when customers click the links, they will receive information about each show that Zazou is manning a showroom within, instead of just information about the location hosting the event. This was a learning experience for me, and I am glad I was able to change this information today.

Additionally, I was able to email product information and images to NYNOW, a site for one of the showroom locations Zazou will be participating in. The below image will be posted on NYNOW, allowing buyers and other exhibitors to view the information in a Pinterest-like manner.

6455 Dappled Knit Loop

This is the 6455 Dappled Knit Loop, and I must say, I think the model looks absolutely stunning!

I have more than 800 Sterling Styles descriptive blurbs done, so I will hopefully complete the last 200 today.

The letter for Zazou sales representatives has been finalized as well, and I shall await more assignments from the head honchos here at Zazou and Sterling Styles.

Thank you so much for sharing my birthday with me. Think good thoughts about a fun and productive day, while enjoying this very appropriate Taylor Swift song!!

Hello my lovely little Zazou Zebras!

I want to wish you a happy weekend. I will return to my Zazou and Sterling Styles duties on Tuesday, July 30, which is actually my 22nd birthday!

It will be my honor to share my birthday here with you, and until then, happy reading!

Love, Micheala

I have officially created 819 descriptive blurbs, ranging from dresses, pants, scarves and purses! My creative juices remain strong – let us hope I can still think of 200 more!

When admiring the silver Mohair Scarf from the Fall 2013 Zazou collection, a certain rhyme comes to my mind: “Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold.”

The message I take from this? Old scarves are gold, but new ones are beautiful, sleek silver, just like this chic accessory that is perfectly paired with a black leather jacket. A silver scarf such as this can add the final touch to the outfit of any feminine rock star who knows how to have a great time, whether at a dinner party or riding on her Harley Davidson.

This silver Mohair Scarf exemplifies what accessories are supposed to be: individualistic pieces that can turn up the volume on any ensemble. Yes, a great pair of jeans and a glossy leather jacket make for a great fashion pair, but the addition of a silver scarf makes it even better, and creates a look all your own. This silver scarf wins the gold medal, without a doubt!

It is already Thursday morning of July 25, 2013! Where or where has the time gone?!

Although I am primarily on my computer during my hours here at Sterling Styles, Inc. and Zazou, time usually flies by, which is why, I suppose, I should not be surprised that it is already the end of my sixth week at my internship.

As always, I will be working diligently on the Sterling Style descriptive blogs and various email blasts for Sterling Styles and Zazou.

I will also be discussing a letter to prospective buyers draft with Christopher Carroll, who will surely give me important tips and instructions on how to properly write and forward this important Zazou letter.

Also, in between Zazou1982 blog posts and my other Zazou assignments, I will be admiring the new Zazou Fall 2013 Catalog, which features beautiful scarves and fingerless gloves that all embody luminosity, texture and warmth. I will use what I learned in AMM 443A, APparel Market Analysis Report. That class primarily consisted of writing, an activity I indulge in every single day here at Sterling Styles and Zazou.

Though infrequently discussed on this blog, Zazou, known for its chic scarves, also sell finely made fingerless gloves that embody the essences of warmth, texture and luminosity.

In the image pictured above, the model has paired some prim fingerless gloves with her lace top and Stonewash Scarf from the Fall 2013 Zazou collection.

Fingerless gloves are a fun alternative to your normal winter wear accessories. The fingerless aspect is also useful because it keeps your hands warm while still allowing you to do normal tasks that other gloves inhibit, such as buttoning jackets or accessing your phone.

It was so exciting this morning to hold the hard copy of the Zazou Fall 2013 catalog in my hands! It is a sizable catalog filled with looks and pieces that embody Zazou qualities: Luminosity, Texture, Warmth.
