STYLE: Carrie Fever


I am (yes, STILL!) an avid fan of Sex and the City and am so not ashamed to admit it. Don't let me happen across a series marathon or a single episode while channel surfing because when I do, it's almost as if I am discovering the show for the very first time. I love all the ladies and there is a little of me in each one them. But I most identify with Carrie Bradshaw.


I'd say Carrie and I have a few things in common ... I'm a (recovering) journalist/writer and sometimes I freelance for various publications (my latest piece in Uptown Magazine is here), I have some really great girlfriends, I am fiercely independent and -- the most obvious similarity of them all -- I am a shopaholic through and through. Much like Carrie (and much to the chagrin of my dear husband), "I like my money right where I can see it ... hanging in my closet."

Skirt (here). It's $89.95, but with a gift check and a 20% off coupon, I got it for less than $40! #WINNING


So when I saw this whimsical tulle skirt from Lane Bryant adorned with fun polka dots and in my favorite color combo, I knew I had to have it! It also reminded me of something Carrie Bradshaw would wear and totally make her own. I immediately knew I wanted to pair this skirt with bright colors, and yellow and red would be the best color pop payoff to compliment this tutu. And how Carrie Bradshaw-ish is it to just throw on a tutu instead of jeans or a cute sundress for brunch with the girls or a stroll around Central Park (well, since I live in Atlanta, let's make that Piedmont Park) with your special guy?




This skirt is sure to get its fair amount of wear well into the winter. I have so many ideas for this piece! Stay tuned for more great looks featuring this terrific tutu! And as always, thanks for stopping by!




Love,
