**In The Streets**
I don’t know many women on this earth that will tell you that they weren’t die hard fans of the show “Sex and the City.” Definitely not anyone I know at least! I have to be honest and admit that I am a S and the C super fan lol! I’ve watched every episode a thousand times, I own the collectors special edition set and I even went on the tour for the show in NYC haha. From the very first episode to the last movie that was made, I was always genuinely in awe of Carrie Bradshaw’s style. Even the most outrageous outfits inspired me in some way! Click on this link to read an article where Patricia Fields, who was the costume designer for the show talks about some of the iconic pieces she put on Carrie that remained throughout each season.
This particular outfit is one that I put together based on her style from season 6. You will see her in that season repeatedly wear body-con dresses with some sort of ankle booties. With fall fast approaching, I thought this was a great transitional outfit to showcase. I love the shade of blue that this dress is, and I felt it paired so well with a light grey suede bootie. Belting the dress and adding some layered gold necklaces and a big fringe bag is the kind of over accessorizing that Carrie was known for. She normally would wear an oversized coat with this kind of outfit, but being that it’s still summer, I decided to go with my Yigal Azrouel cropped half sleeve leather jacket. Feel free to have some fun with this kind of look. Carrie was anything but conventional and she will go down in history as one of the biggest style icons to ever exist! Shop the complete look here:
