I’ve had a hankering to re-watch Sex and the City recently — I feel like I’ll understand more of the emotional travails of the principle characters now that I, too, am in my 30s, and I, too, live in New York City. But I’m also curious about the fashion, whether it holds up or not. I’m fairly confident I’d still wear most of Charlotte York’s wardrobe (minus those itty-bitty handbags, which aren’t much in vogue anymore and remind me of clunky mules I wore in the early 2000s), but how about Carrie B.?
One fashion detail heavily featured in Carrie’s wardrobe was the spaghetti strap, and I’m confident that this sartorial decision was in part owing to SJP’s frail stature (everything so slight and tiny, even the straps!) and in part owing to its innate, negligee-like sexiness. I mean — how saucy is the bronzed babe above in her barely-there cami? (I also love her small Miraculous Mary medal — you can buy a similar style here or here.) I’m in. My top picks for getting the look:
THIS STRIPED AND SMOCKED STEAL (UNDER $60, TOO; PERFECT WITH WHITE JEANS)
THIS ZIMMERMAN-ESQUE DRESS (UNDER $100)
THIS CHINOISERIE-INSPIRED PRINT (OHHH LA LA)
P.S. Entirely unrelated, but I spent an ungodly amount of time in pursuit of a laundry hamper a year or two ago, and I wish I’d waited until this came out. Love everything about it. Color, handle, shape. Perfect!
P.P.S. I think I’m going to last-minute-order this flag sweater for the FOJ. So adorable! Also, there’s a coordinating mini style — on sale here! (If the flag is too much for you, how about this adorable summer sweater?!) Speaking of last minute FOJ ordering, though I have mini’s outfit squared away, how adorable are these for her jammies?! I think I’m going to order her both the striped pair and the star pair!
P.P.P.S. A Magpie wrote asking me what to wear in the rain! My answer: For shoes:
