how to dress vintage

Sex in the City goes Vintage

If Carrie Bradshaw was a 1950’s gal I imagine she would be dressed to the 9’s in fabulous fashions from Dorothy O’Hara, Dior, Ceil Chapman, Charles James, and Suzy Perette.

I’m looking for love. Real love.

I couldn’t help but be inspired by the entire Sex in the City characters. It is uplifting to see 4 different women, all with unique backgrounds, come together and be the closests of friends.

Taking ques from the show I decided to come up with my own take on Carrie Bradshaws style and her infamous outfit from the opening credits of the show.

For Carrie Bradshaw’s fashion style I decided to pull out this gorgeous 1950’s gold lamé and tulle gown. The satin peach gloves are a direct match to the satin underline in the skirt, and I added a petticoat for extra fullness.

The shoes are modern but are overlaid in tulle and peach rhinestones. I think Carrie would approve!

THE MOST EXCITING, CHALLENGING, AND SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIP OF ALL IS THE ONE YOU HAVE WITH YOURSELF.”

When I first decided to write this post and come up with the various content to showcase it; I realized that Carrie loved herself. She enjoyed her life. Every aspect. Not only did she have a hand in writing her book– she lived it.

Which character from Sex in the City do you identify most with?

  • Carrie
  • Samantha
  • Miranda
  • Charlotte

Whomever you choose remember that there is NO wrong answer. Each character was unique and brought her own strengths to the group.
