CARRIE CRUSH








 Shoes/Dress(similar)/Wallet: Target, Jacket: H&M, Bracelet: Handmade in Santa Fe, Belt (insanely old): I don't recall where, 
Ring: Stella&Dot, Earrings: Forever21, Sunglasses (old): Ray-Ban

I never watched Sex and the City. Probably because I was too young when it first came on, and I never had girlfriends to watch it with as I got older.  Blasphemy, I know! But recently it was brought to my attention that HBO has a collection of complete series OnDemand, and well, I can't resist. The style inspiration I have been missing out on all these years is endless! 

This look is my interpretation of Carrie's outfit in the first movie, where she calls Samantha to tell her she is getting married. I saw her pink dress look, and immediately dug out this studded belt I have been hoarding since probably middle school. Perfect. 

P.S. I have been growing out my hair since September. And the longer it got, the less I felt like myself. What I really loved about my pixie cut was how it made me feel, like it enhanced my badass attitude and gave me a confidence boost. Being close to a very short bob made me feel like I was losing my edge, and I hated it. So I abandoned the goal of achieving all one length, and decided to shave the sides. And voila! It feels good to be back!

  3. I'm going to resist the urge to give you the Sex and the City lecture...girl! I have all the seasons on DVD, a list of favorite "Carrie" outfits, and long standing girl crush on SJP. :)
    Love the outfit, you look chic and edgy, per usual. And I totally feel you on the hair thing. Growing out my bangs has been torturous, not to mention the endless bad hair days. But you wear short hair so well, so I ain't mad that you left the hair-grow-out club. I love the shaved sides - you look gorg.
