Wildcard

January 16, 2012

Since this weekend was full of sleeping bag coats (hello freezing temperatures), football gear (go niners), and cozy sweatshirts (love those hoodies), I decided to toss in a wildcard and get a bit more dressed up on Sunday night. Pairing perhaps the world’s most unexpectedly versatile blouse with some figure flattering skinny jeans, a sparkly clutch and Roberto Cavalli heels, I felt like I was having a Carrie Bradshaw moment ready to take New York by storm and hit up one of those notorious Sex and the City clubs (can I reference this show enough?). Instead I ventured to the Upper East Side and promptly slipped back into sweats to watch the Golden Globes. Though a bold attempt, sometimes a weekend commands comfy clothing and there ain’t nothin’ wrong with that.

Drunk At Vogue

I admittedly bought these Manolo Blahnik‘s after watching that episode of Sex and the City (for the umpteenth time) where Carrie gets drunk at Vogue and falls in love with these patent leather mary janes. Yes, I’m in a serious relationship with Sex and the City (see here for proof) but I’m also madly in love with these shoes and I don’t think it’s only because of the show.

I’ve worn them numerous amounts of times (see here and here for a mere glimpse), and when I received an invitation to have brunch at Vogue with QVC last Friday, there was no way I was going without my “drunk at vogue” shoes strapped to my feet. While I didn’t actually get drunk at Vogue a la Carrie Bradshaw, I did enjoy a delicious pain au chocolat and some coffee before venturing out into the cold with Emily for a walk around Bryant Park.

**I realize I look absolutely exhausted in these photos…hoping this past weekend of rest has changed that.

It goes without saying that Carrie Bradshaw, the love crazed shoe whore protagonist of Sex & the City, is one of the biggest style icons in fashion. Even when she’s wearing athletic shorts and a cheesy tank top she’s still strutting down 5th Avenue in a pair of Manolo Blahniks. But here’s the thing: ever since I got the complete six season booklet for my birthday last year, my obsession with Carrie (and her three “fabulous friends”) has become a little disgusting. With no cable and delays in Netflix arrivals, I have found myself watching Sex & the City episodes back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back and so on and so forth. And while I clearly enjoy the show and all its quirky love stories, I can’t deny the fact that half the reason I keep watching time and time again is because of Carrie’s covetable wardrobe (and apartment). I know, I know, it’s completely unrealistic and thanks to blogger, The Frenemy‘s excellent math skills we now know exactly how in debt Carrie Bradshaw is, but I really just don’t care. Her outfits and wardrobe are an endless supply of inspiration for me and make getting dressed in the morning that much more thrilling. Brunch on a Saturday? Why not go the Carrie route, say “to hell with casual dressing” and wear a sparkly dress and sky-high heels? Quick run to the grocery store? Better wear that fur coat and Fendi bagette! The only downside to watching this much Sex & the City? I have this never ending urge to go shopping…but I guess that’s nothing new for me.

** p.s. if there is a “S.A.T.C. A” (Sex and the City Anonymous) that any of you know of, feel free to admit me…

**p.p.s. but I’ll only go if I can bring my S.A.T.C. box set with me….

**p.p.p.s. HELP I HAVE ISSUES!

**p.p.p.p.s. I’m sorry for everything that just happened…

Spring 2010: JILL STUART

September 15, 2009

Jill Stuart’s collection was edgy, sexy and full of studs and spandex. Tiny body skimming dresses left little to the imagination and are pretty much only appropriate for the hours of 9pm-4am. However, to be clear, these were no ordinary “barely there” bodycon dresses. Stuart toyed with neckline, draping, and combining unexpected textures like silver metallics and milky white spandex. I can imagine Sarah Jessica Parker wearing a few of these dresses in the upcoming Sex and the City movie.
