People- Carrie Bradshaw

Sex in the City is one of my all time favorite shows for a few reasons. Not only is it entertaining (on many levels) but the fashion in it is AMAZING!

Patricia Field, the costume designer is insanely talented. The outfits that the characters wear are nothing short of amazing! Every time I watch the show (I've seen all episodes multiple times), I am fascinated at how fresh the clothes look, even now (years later).

Carrie Bradshaw, apart from being the main character is (in my opinion) a fashion inspiration! The character loved clothes, especially shoes and she was good at taking risks. Not everything Carrie put together was fabulous, but like any real woman, she expressed herself best through her outfits. 

Some may argue that her wardrobe was unreasonable, that a writer living in New York City during the early 2000's could never make enough money to purchase the types of things she wore. While, we all know that is true (sorry to bust your bubble if you didn't), it isn't really about that (plus we all know Carrie would rather invest in her closet anyway).

Instead it appeals to those of us who dream of dressing up, the aspirational aspect of being able to wear designer clothes and accessories. The wardrobe in Sex in the City is artistic, it is a visual stimulant that never gets old and constantly inspires me to play around with my style! 

Some of my favorite Carrie looks!
