Carrie Moments

carrie moments

This is what happens when you have been watching too many Sex & the City re-runs. I can’t even recall how many times I’ve seen each season and each episode, but I never seem to get tired of them. As many of you I’m sure, I could act out the entire series without needing a script. That’s why I wanted to pay a little homage to one of the most important milestones in the history of fashion, the fabulous and always ahead of her time, Carrie Bradshaw. During the six years it was on, SATC had a lot, and when I say a lot I mean a ton of memorable fashion moments: the tutu, the naked dress, the candy striper attire, the flapper number for the book party, the sequin cover-up and the list goes on. I could draw them all (maybe I will, but it’ll take a while), but for now I took the three that I loved the most and drew them on myself). Enjoy!

satclaSEX AND THE CITY

When the opening credits appeared on our screens for the first time, little did we know that this show would be life-changing, liberating and definitely addictive. The cream tutu and with the pink tank top is probably the most iconic attire from the whole series (even more than the Vivienne Westwood wedding dress in the first film). To think that Pat Field fished it out of a bargain bin…

ANCHORS AWAY

Remember the sailor episode? This lively outfit was featured on the first scene, when Carrie goes to the Guggenheim, solo, because she is dating the city. There was something about this look that immediately caught my eye and stayed in my mind forever. The colors, the cropped jacket, the foulard-like jumper and the twist: the two-tone pumps. That’s the thing about Patricia Field, she has a talent for mixing, matching and mis-matching.

AMERICAN GIRL IN PARIS

I think I can safely say that in the two final episodes, there was not one Carrie ensemble that didn’t make me swoon. From the Hello Paris outfit to the thousand layer dress, it was a lovely display of gallic fashion. But there was one outfit in particular that took the prize, the ladybug dress with the dramatic coat and the unexpected white pumps. One day, I’ll wear something like that in Paris, I’ll even step gladly on dog poo if that’s what it takes…

This is a different post from everything that I’ve been doing so far. Let me  know if you enjoyed it! It would be a pleasure to put together more of this for you.

Have a lovely week and remember, X’mas is just around the corner!

Sweet kisses…

The Daily Fashion Bread: June 16, 2011

  • Louis Vuitton’s Resort 2012 in collaboration with Sofia Coppola New York was witness of the presentation of LV’s Resort 2012. Creative Director Marc Jacobs with help of the filmaker designed the Cruise line. Presented at the Four Seasons, with coveted model Arizona Muse as its star, the collection was all about french chic. A mix of materials, tweed, leather, denim, lace,and more, were used to create 32 different looks, perfect for a holiday extravaganza.
  • Jimmy Choo celebrates 15th anniversary 15 years worth of sexy footwear. So the brand has decided to celebrate it by releasing their ICONS Collection. The 15 most emblematic styles overall, including that feather sandal Carrie loses in an episode of Sex and the City. The shoes will only be sold in Jimmy Choo’s boutiques. The styles, as Tamara Mellon said, will not only be the most popular, but also those that have a personal story.
  • Alexa gets Mulberry rich The brand is celebrating their 40th anniversary, but they also have another reason to celebrate. Their profits have skyrocketed thanks to the customer demand for the Alexa bag, named after TV presenter and fashion icon, Alexa Chung. Also very profitable, the styles Edie and Tillie. The sales in their stores have doubled and the brand is expected to keep on growing financially speaking.
  • Oh Dear, oh dear…. Just because I find it amusing, Snookie, yeah that orange girl from the Jersey Shore, is planning to expand her footwear line (I didn’t even know she had one) which already includes leopard print slippers. Snooki Enterprises (I am trying hard no to laugh) has signed a licensing deal for a line of PICKLE flip-flops. The Jersey Shore people sure know how to milk the cow, while it lasts. Will you be buying? (Please don’t).

See you tomorrow for a big, fat, new post!

Sweet kisses…
