I wore this [what I like to refer to as] daytime party look out for a birthday lunch last week. The mix of denim, tulle polka dot skirt, and glitter stilettos definitely reminded me of a late 80s Carrie Bradshaw. I intended for it to be a fun, birthday girl-esque outfit I might not normally wear during the day, but let’s be honest– Carrie would probably rock this on a Tuesday at breakfast.
“Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future… this is known as Fashion Week.”
I know I said I didn’t like making seasonal to-do lists, but I do have a life bucket list. On that list, somewhere between live in London and be in a movie, lies a dream to attend New York Fashion Week. And don’t think I haven’t thought about what I’d wear if the opportunity ever came knocking! Tulle and bangles and simple glam a la Carrie Bradshaw of course.

I am getting super excited about The Carrie Diaries upcoming TV show, if for nothing else than the fashion! I think AnnaSophia Robb is just adorable and, at least from the few pre-production photos I’ve seen, is really fitting the part. Young Carrie’s style may not be a look I can rock every day, but it sure is fun playing dress up sometimes!
What do you think– are you excited about The Carrie Diaries or do you fear it will ruin the allure of Sex and the City?

My little sister and I have always dreamed about what our bachelorette pad would look like if we ever had the chance to move in together. Since I’ve been crazy busy with work + life (and meeting fabulous Boston Bloggers!) this week, she’s here to show you what our dream apartment would look like…

I realized this past weekend that being home, bumming around on a Saturday, is no reason to not wear fun clothes if I’m feeling particularly glitzy. That kind of inspiration comes from my girl Carrie Bradshaw. The woman who cozies up with Big and his takeout while wearing Jimmy Choos and pearls. In case ya didn’t know.

Happy November! I can’t believe that November 1st means that I have officially been a resident of my “new” neighborhood– and bedroom– for two months now. I figure that means it’s about time for a couple photos of the room like I promised!
I got my inspiration from Carrie’s apartment, when she has it redone in the Sex and the City movies…
My version, though surely full of differences, came out better than I ever could have hoped!
A little preppy, a little boho, and with a hint of sparkle– I feel right at home here :) The frames are full of a mix of vintage postcards, little sayings, and some of mine and my friend Samantha‘s photography.
And just because it’s not a Carrie [or Emily, for that matter] lair without the clothes…
Plus another reminder from the first SATC movie:
I think I’ll stay awhile.
A quote from the utterly fabulous Carrie Bradshaw right there.
I’ve been finding a lot of inspiration in Sex and the City lately actually. Cliche, yes maybe, but I still think Carrie has a lot of wisdom to offer me. And fashion tips. After all, my favorite part of SATC will always be the clothes. Well, and the shoes…

Best part is, you don’t even need their budgets to afford most of these (though where do they all get so much money??).
Which girl do you think would wear each pair?
