This week’s episode was one of my favorites, primarily due to the fact that most of the episode Carrie spent dressed up like Madonna during her “Like a Virgin” phase! Surprisingly though, as you can see above, it wasn’t my favorite look from tonight.  I loved Carrie’s cute floral/polka dot dress. Great pops of color, cute ruffles and chic strappy sandals. The perfect spring look!

If you know me, you know I’m definitely not afraid of a good dose of polka dots. I can’t quite put my finger on my affinity for this fabulous spotted pattern; they’re just so darn cute and chic! Never was this more true than in Carrie’s cute sundress above.

While in this particular episode, Carrie wore lots of sequins and sparkle, ironically enough (ironic because I’m obsessed with anything glittery and sparkly) my favorite look was one without a single sequin. I loved Carrie’s cute bright   coat, floral skirt, beanie and bright scarf. Two of my favorite things – floral and bright color!

Here’s this week’s interpretation:

trench coat – farfeth.com (more affordable version HERE), top – target, skirt –Prabal Gurung for Target, heels – Prabal Gurung for Target, polka dot mary jane pumps – modcloth, sunglasses – river island (SIMILAR), beanie – river island (SIMILAR), earrings – nordstrom, necklace – asos
Next week is the season finale! The season sure has gone by fast!

It was all about color. I loved Larissa’s cute bright red blazer! I love how it was styled with a colorful statement necklace, cute polka dot pants and a colorful graphic print blouse. I don’t think you’d say “hello, the 80’s are calling and they want your outfit back,”  in the case I think it proper to say simply, “Heeelllo fabulous! Love the color!” My friends, this is yet another amazing example of the awesomeness of Eric Daman! Vintage 80’s style interpreted in a chic modern way!  <3 !

Here’s my interpretation of this look:

blazer – Oasis,  polka dot pants –  similar, “glitter lips” tee – Markus Lupfer, heels – Steve Madden, clutch – BCBGMAXAZRIA, necklace – Kate Spade, lipstick – Mac “Pretty Please”

I enjoyed last night’s episode of The Carrie Diaries more than I have any other episode so far this season. Why? Was it because of Carrie’s stunning one-sleeved/one shoulder sequined mini dress? Yes, that was a part of it as it is my favorite look, but this time is was because of more than just strictly the fashion.

Why was this my favorite episode so far:

1. Carrie got her first pair of Manolo Blahniks

2. Carrie sipped her very first cosmopolitan

3. Two awesome quotes:

– “Maybe the reason Cinderella was so happy the shoe fit wasn’t because of the prince, but the shoes.”

– “When one door closes, one shoe box opens. “

Now about the fashion…..

It was all about Carrie’s cute emerald printed dress this week.  Like I’ve said in almost all of my previous The Carrie Diaries: Playing Favorites posts, this is yet another brilliantly conceived example of how lead stylist Eric Daman mixes classic 80’s vintage style with modern touches.  Not only is it Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2013, but its cute subtle print gives it just a bit of edge; a great mix of edgy feminine style.

There were cobalt blue “couture” dresses, jewels, neons, cute polka dots and more. However, maybe the simplest of outfits was my favorite from this week’s episode “Dangerous Territory.” I loved Maggie’s cute sheer sweater, skinny jeans and awesome riding boots.  The entire look was very on trend with today’s fashions ( i.e. the riding boots trend from this fall) and is yet again another example of the brilliance of Eric Daman, bringing classic 80’s vintage style and modern trends together.

Here are a few pieces I think would adequately achieve this look:

I will say, I think the highlight of this week’s episode by FAR for me was seeing Carrie and Walt dress for a Halloween party as Princess Di and Prince Charles, but I digress….

Anyway, my favorite look this week was Maggie’s red leather jacket (similar here and here) and red knit top (cute option here) combo.  Am I mistaken, or is that a vintage Chanel bag I see on her shoulder? While I’m not sure about the bag, I am sure that her look above is great! How easily could you see yourself sporting this look paired with a cute pair of boyfriend jeans and heels or booties for a great weekend look? I’m still loving the brilliant mix of classic 80’s vintage style with modern trendy pieces.

You’re brilliant Eric!

The Carrie Diaries: 80’s Fashion With A Modern Twist

Well friends, unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, then you know that Carrie Bradshaw is back! Well, the teenage Carrie Bradshaw. On 01/14/13, The Carrie Diaries, prequel to Sex in the City and based on the  books by SATC author Candice Bushnell, premiered on The CW.

THE CARRIE DIARIES

 

We all had expectations, some of us reservations of how good this could and would actually be. Having read both books in the series, I was skeptical on how true to the books they would stay and how this might affect our view of our beloved and iconic Carrie of SATC.  Verdict is in:  I love it! I love it so much so, that I’ve been inspired to do my own weekly series of each week – a review of my favorite look for each week’s episode.
