New York Girls

Whenever I am feeling bored or uninspired, I hit my well battered Sex and The City box set. Without sounding like a total tool, Carrie's outfits and accessories are a delight to the eyes. One Dior bag here, Manolo Blahnik shoes there, a Cosmopolitan glass making very frequent appearances. God Bless you, Patricia Field! One episode cures that boredom or lack of inspiration in 25 minutes. For the rest of the day, I then believe that I can have the wardrobe, job and men that Carrie has.

There is nothing wrong with a bit of far-fetched day dreaming after a very lacklustre day in work, is there? What do you do when you are feeling bored or uninspired?

Oh Carrie! She makes it look perfectly natural to wear a tiara while feeding the birds. I watch The Devil wears Prada (again) when I'm feeling uninspired.

à la Modest said...

Carrie's outfits are really fun and colorful! I especially love her black and white Parisian outfit and the outfit with the multi-colored skirt. I think we just need to get more statement pieces like that for that easy "wow" factor!

Audrey Allure said...

Love SATC! I also love Charlotte's style too :)

FashionLifeCoach said...
