If you keep up with the show, we've got a prediction for you: Sarah might become a regular on the show. Think about it - Sarah's character mentioned she'd attended a St. Patrick's Day party and left early and last episode, Ted said his future wife was at a St. Patty's party he went to, but he didn't know it at the time.

Catch a new episode tonight on CBS.

This time of year can be a tricky for fashionistas living in parts of the world with very pronounced seasons. It's the transitional point between winter and spring when it looks pleasant outside, but once you leave home you realize how absolutely freezing it still is. With so many spring and summer looks already flooding the market, it's hard to reach for that solemn black wool coat when you're excited about wearing the new season's bright colors. So borrow a page from Carla Bruni-Sarkozy's fashion playbook and invest in a bracelet sleeve coat in a feminine floral color.

The former model was with her husband, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, on a trip to visit with Britain's Prime Minister when she donned this vibrant purple coat (which still looks a bit too warm for our needs). We love this carnation-colored coat by Tahari as it provides just the right amount of protection from the elements without looking wintery.

satceiffel.pngNot much is known about the plot of the Sex and the City movie, coming to theaters in May. However, one thing we do know is that in the opening scenes of the movie, Carrie Bradshaw (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) totes an adorable mini Eiffel Tower-shaped handbag.

Of course, Carrie's bag is encrusted with thousands and thousands of Swarovski Crystals and retails for $2,750, but the standard version (pictured) costs just under $400.

Better yet, shopdistinction.com is raffling off the bag just in time for the movie's big premiere. And best of all, whether you win or not, all the proceeds of the raffle benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Visit shopdistinction.com to donate and enter. Each raffle ticket costs only $5.

When we saw New-York-socialite-turned-trendsetter-turned-handbag-designer, Tinsley Mortimer at the launch party for Versace Menswear 2008 at Barneys in NYC, we thought to ourselves, "How can we make Tinsley's whimsical and ultra-girly style work for us?"

By alluding to her voluminous ruffled shrug with a simple cotton-cashmere cardigan with a ruffle detail and switching her canary yellow chiffon dress to a more versatile jersey-knit tank dress we're going to be able to wear these pieces all summer in a number of different outfits.
