When it comes to fashion and figuring out men, nobody wrote that female bible better than Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. Not only did we fall in love with her personality, her sense of style broke all boundaries and totally oozed confidence. She is my number one style icon (I really hope I’m the Carrie in my group of friends…) and below are a number of reasons why Sarah Jessica Parker’s character continues to inspire every outfit I ever wear. No matter what she faces in her life, Carrie is always killing it in terms of fashion!
My fluffy babies I love anything different and out there, so it was no surprise that I fell head over heels in love with the fluffy high heel trend. I bought the black ones below which were inspired by Carrie’s because I just needed them in my life asap. Mine are from boohoo and I still keep them in the box because I’m so afraid of damaging them (I’m crazy I know). Lets just say if it came down to wearing these in the rain or going completely barefoot to makesure they stay in perfect condition, I will be having very wet feet on my next night out!
To me, nothing says fashionista like wearing some sort of a tutu on a regular day. Obviously, in the picture below I’m wearing it as a fairy costume on Halloween, but in general, this H&M baby never fails me and will always have a sacred spot in my wardrobe.
Anybody who knows me knows faux fur is the way to my heart. I have plenty of coats like this and completely cherish them. This outfit below was a personal favourite of mine when I went on a trip to Dublin several months ago. The back of my boots are also leopard print and my coat is F&F from Tesco which my nan treated me to, she knows me too well!
Remember ladies, confidence is key!
I don’t believe you need to follow trends to be a lover of fashion, I believe it’s all about setting trends. If you like it, who cares what anybody else thinks? I don’t think things ever really go out of fashion. I’m not one person, I change who I am on a daily basis and my outfits always reflect this because my personal style is the way I express my personality. Carrie Bradshaw was the same, you could never predict what she would be wearing next, which I will always admire her for. My mum always said since I was little I knew exactly what I wanted to wear and she couldn’t choose for me… I guess some things never change!
