Carrie Bradshaw

Kate Moss seems to be the current favourite fashion icon...

personally, I don't really understand why....

She is wearing skinny jeans with t-shirts and vests..... that's what I was wearing when I was 15.... and I still have those vests in my wardrobe....

her look has been termed as 'uber chic' my some fashion magazine I read, can't remember which one... I don't know what that means...

I feel that a fashion icon is someone that has created a look that is unique. coming up with new combinations of how to wear clothes. taking something unusual and making it look fantastic by pairing it with something else...

I personally love the look created by Patricia Fields for the fictional character of Carrie Bradshaw in the hot sitcom 'Sex and The City"

I learnt so much about the possibility of clothes combination from watching this show....

And here's a little secret, when I don't have my hair blow dried straight, it looks exactly like Sarah Jessica Parker's slightly frizzy very wavy hair.... seriously!

Here are some of my favourite Carrie looks from the show....




This is such an easy look to achieve. A simple beaded glittering top with a big thick velvet or satin ribbon tied up over the top.... so simple...


I hate polka dots, but it looks good in this ensemble. I love the cuffs on the sleeves and it has a slight costume feel to it. I don't think I will ever wear polka dots, but then again, I never thought I would wear a yellow three tiered dress til I tried it on....


Love the colour of the umbrella. Love that a corset has been worn in the day... How practical this outfit is though I have no idea!



I nearly died of jealousy when I saw her wear this dress..... I hope by some twist of fashion fate one of these Oscar de la Renta dresses ends up in my wardrobe.








This is what my sister and I used to do when we were 4 or 5 and played dress up..... pile on all the necklaces we could find... and my mum always used to buy us beaded and fake pearl necklaces... we had them in every colour.... I would still have them today if Highland Towers hadn't happened....

I would never think to wear two different types of prints as one outfit, but if I try it, it just might work!

Love the glittering tassels on this dress...


The striped shirt is an interesting touch.... The colour of the suit is unusual too...





I will continue my quest to take fashion risks and try new looks as inspired by Carrie Bradshaw's look!
