Once a year, the Manhattan grid comes into astronomical alignment with the sun, and city dwellers are treated to a sunset that lines up with crosstown streets. We suggest a sidewalk picnic, some discreet open containers and a few fond gazes directed toward New Jersey.

One of the many important fashion lessons Sex And The City taught us is that you are only as fabulous as the bag on your arm. Back in the gold old days when the show ruled our Sunday nights, Fendi bags (and baguettes), abounded ("I’m gonna be a bag lady, a Fendi bag lady, but still a bag lady” - Carrie). An endless array of Christian Dior purses also helped Carrie through some trying times, while Samantha taught us that the Hermès Birkin Bag is the ultimate symbol of status. For the film, a new handbag designer is being thrown into the mix, Nancy Gonzalez, whose luxurious croc handbags were at the top of stylistPatricia Field’s list for accessories. Both Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall are seen carrying Nancy Gonzalez in the flick, as well as a new character, Kim’s little pooch, who was accessorized in a one of a kind matching Nancy Gonzalez collar and leash! Nancy Gonzalez handbags will be at the top of everyone’s wishlist post-premiere, so get yours now! Click SEE SLIDESHOW for the best the Hive has to offer.

"The design challenge we're posing is a fashion transformation unlike any other," said Garcia. "We're taking an iconic accessory-the birth control case-and asking aspiring designers to take a shot at redesigning it into a chic, more sophisticated carrying case that they could slip into their purses."
Design submissions will be accepted until June 30, 2008. On behalf of Garcia, Step Up Women's Network, and Bayer HealthCare, one lucky winner will receive a $10,000 prize to invest in his or her career dreams, via enrollment in design classes or for the purchase of special design materials and software. The contest winners will be announced around the time of Fashion Week in fall 2008.

This sweet Bikini Empire Dress is basically backless which looks amazing if you've got a toned stern and shoulders.
The chocolate hued frock from Dallin Chase will look best with a tan and minimal but colorful accessories. Pick it up now at Otte for $75.50 where it was $302.

Casa Naranja takes a bite of Manzana!!
The MacBook Air is Apple's latest laptop. A sexy, high tech tool and the perfect accessory for a urban Latina on the move or just kickin' it on the Web. And why, you may ask, are the ladies of CN now also the doyennes of Apple technology? Simple of course. Our very own Elizabeth Mateo had the chance to test drive some of these cutting edge products. See her fabulous review on CNNMoney.com and Apple.com Who else but Liz could tell the world that she has "lust for a laptop." Pure Latina sass for all the world to read!
