carried away

As anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the last ten years or so knows, Sex and the City exerted major cultural influence. It brought fashion (Manolo Blahniks and appliqu√© flowers), new language ("fashion road kill"), and cocktail orders (cosmopolitans) to the forefront of popular awareness. 

The show depicted the lives of four very different women, each uniquely navigating their way through their thirties. The uniqueness of each character was captured by the way they dressed - thanks to the genius of the costume designer and stylist, Patricia Fields. But none was more famous and emulated than Carrie Bradshaw, the show's main protagonist and narrator. Carrie is fearlessly fashionable. Her style characterized by unexpected mixes of patterns, textures, haute couture and high street fashion, vintage and accessories.

The influence the show wielded was also heavily critiqued. Some critics have accused it of derailing the feminist fight by blatantly promoting consumerism as the pinnacle of female ambition.

But no matter where you stand when it comes to Sex and the City, its impact on fashion is undeniable. It has certainly influenced me. And while my investment portfolio does not solely consist of Manolo Blahniks, I have become more adventurous with my fashion choices. Today's outfit is an homage to Carrie (or Patricia Fields really) and one of my favourite episodes "I heart NY". I have even travelled to the museum to take the photos ;-)
