Vintage Fashion Mix – Ode to Carrie Bradshaw

When I was writing for Fashiontribes and Lesley explained why I was a perfect fit for the Downtown Doll tribe, she told me to think vintage meets downtown chic – think Carrie Bradshaw. And boy does this peg my style, maybe not in such a literal Carrie way, but in the sense of mixing vintage and modern fashion with unique details.
In honor of the much anticipated release of the Sex and the City movie, which I’m sure will cause swarms of women to flock to the local cinema leaving every known man at home, I present to you my ode to Carrie Bradshaw – vintage style!

The vintage dress featured int he mix up is a combination of the bubble peplum dress and the bold graphic florals Carrie wears. Search for 1950s floral dress to score the look. I also included a cute little travel novelty bag. Novelty bags are extremely hard to find, and forget the deal. If you find a vintage novelty bag as cute as the Eiffel Tower bag by Timmy Woods, nab it!

And the suit in which she got married was vintage! How she said: I saw it in a vintage shop, love it and bought it :) No brand!
Carrie Bradshaw s style is wonderful!

Don’t tell me, don’t tell me! I haven’t seen the movie yet. Even though many people are tired of her style, I am not.
