Crush on a Call Girl

Showtime's "Secret Diary of a Call Girl" is one of my guilty pleasures that I have to watch weekly, if not for the storyline then absolutely for the fashion. I am over the moon about the wardrobe of the central character, Hannah/Belle, played by Billie Piper. Outside of her line of work, Piper's "Call Girl" is a modern day fashionista. She seamlessly blends fifties style, "Mad Men" dresses with chunky, modern accessories creating a wonderful fusion of traffic stopping, ladylike allure.

I could wear it every day!

Equal parts Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte - I rank my affection for Hannah/Belle's clothing right up there with my undying adoration for Sex In The City's style...meaning, I'll always be able to watch reruns and find something fresh and new!

Never drab, Piper's character is often outfitted in bold prints offset with punches of color paired with unique, chunky baubles (and not to mention voluminous hair and vivid red lips) often with a hint of vintage. Her style is certainly one that can sometimes be a bit over the top, but somehow it remains balanced and is never overwhelming.

As fabulous as she looks, I certainly understand that no one has the time to do it up like that on the average day to day, but lusting after her fur capes (faux, I hope), peplum dresses and lavish turquoise jewels gives me ideas for key pieces that I'd like to incorporate into my daily ensembles or for those fashionable evenings out on the town, even down to the divine satin and lace unmentionables!

Sure we can't all have a sexy, jet set lifestyle, but nothing is stopping you from taking a page from the "Call Girl" style book and strutting your inner vixen!
