I recently stumbled on this photo and quote by Carrie Bradshaw of HBO’s Sex and the City (aka my fave show of all time). Since I’m such a nerd, I knew that this photo in particular is from an episode in one of the final seasons of the show where Bradshaw travels to Paris for a boyfriend. This stunt was very out of character for her, so I decided to put together a collage of things that ARE in Bradshaw’s character. These pieces are all something I believe the costume designer for the show (Patricia Field) would choose for Carrie. Carrie Bradshaw embodies the ability to be free and not fall to social norms when it comes to her everyday dress. I know I am going to start taking more of a “Carrie approach” when styling myself and I encourage you all to do the same! Oh! and don’t forget to top it off with a great pair of Manolo Blahnik’s!
