Bag: Michael Kors
For the past couple of years I've watched "Sex and The City" off and on. Between the stylish and on occasion outrageous outfits, romance, and strong independent women vibes the main characters give off, it's a program I really enjoy but unfortunately don't get a chance to see often. I've seen it enough that out of all of the girls, Carrie Bradshaw is my fave. I mean what fashion and Manhattan loving writer wouldn't love Carrie? Plus, I am finishing up the series on Netflix that tells Carrie's story pre-city, "The Carrie Dairies!"
You see, before there was sex and before there was the city, Carrie was a typical Connecticut teen living it up in the 80's. Today's outfit drew inspiration from this young and spry Carrie. Growing up she was very fashion-conscious. Her wardrobe encapsulated an affluent flare, femininity, and hints of a vibrant editorial style. I find it's always an interesting and fun challenge to try and replicate a certain style, especially when it's 80's related.
Sporting the 80's style in modern times can either be a hit or miss, but I think this outfit is a hit. You can't really go wrong wearing a monochromatic chic look with pops of burgundy. The outfit just screams "I'm an important sophisticated city girl, check me out!" so how could that not be a hit? Even if no one else likes this look, I really do because I felt fabulous strutting around in it. With a look like this, one can't help but feel confident, which is partially the point of wearing anything really. Why wear something if it doesn't make you feel like the best version of yourself?
These photos capture the most fun I've had trying to get decent fashion model-y/outfit shots. I blasted 80s music, attempted America's Next Top Model poses, and just danced around. Because of that I have more photos to share than any other typical outfit post I've done, which I'm very excited about! It's tough taking pictures on your own, but it's always satisfying when you get a good bunch/you look semi-photogenic and presentable!
While wearing this little number I did what Carrie would do: go to Starbucks and shop! So stay tuned for a mini clothing haul! The style of clothes is different from what I typically purchase!
Have a lovely day and stay fabulous!!
