The Look For Less: Carrie Bradshaw

This (mainly) vintage Carrie ensemble was one of my favorites in the Sex and the City movie. It's also one of the hardest to copy. I did my best, but had to change the color story. Instead of mixing green florals, which costume designer Patricia Field did with the vintage dress and coat, I found some lovely yellow floral pieces. Still cute, yes? The famous Timmy Woods Eiffel Tower bag is already spawning copies and there are many other gold dangly gold bracelets out there that aren't Verdura (and are much cheaper!).

the dress actually isn't that hard to copy, especially since there is one specifically inspired by it at asos.com - Fab even featured the site: http://www.asos.com/Sarah-Jessica-Parker/Asos/Rose-Print-Prom-Dress/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=305348&cid=4168&clr=GreenPrint&Rf-600=5&sh=0 it's a little different color, and obviously carrie's is much more beautiful, but this is a great replica...

Love the look! Thanks for the tips on the shoe knockoffs BTW, I really don't like gladiator flats, but those heel versions she wears are cute!

My favorite look, too! (I must be the only one who totally ignored the belt in the movie, and disliked it when it was pointed out. Too biker bar.) I got me Nine West version of the shoes. First order of business (after discussion, then awaiting the DVD) after the movie! They really modernize the girly dresses. I don't see mine on the site, but there are some comparable options: http://www.ninewest.com/n/browse/category.s?categoryId=2951462

I really like the Bakers gladiators too: http://www.bakersshoes.com/product/trends/gladiators/candice.do I think those are the closest in style to the Diors (even more so than the Steve Maddens--and a lot cheaper!), plus once you add them to your shopping bag, they become 10% off!

I just bought that dress at Ann Taylor Loft last week! I love it and it looks so cute on. That green dress of Carrie's was probably my favorite one in the movie, and I agree, Fab, soooo hard to replicate.
