Carrie Bradshaw: Writer, fashionista, old romantic, fictional character, (my all time hero) pretty much has always had the ability to enchant and inspire me.
It was when reading The Carrie Diaries, a book based on the teenage Carrie before she moved to New York City and in other words before SEX...and the city.
I found this book captivating, probably because I have studied this character so many times via my television set, and could recall her closet off by heart if you wanted me to. So this was something any hardcore SATC fan should rightfully read, as it answers all those questions you always wondered, her family life for one.
It also had the ability to bring up many of those awkward teenage issues, so this book not only fills a void in those SATC fans it also happens to be filled of some very valuable advice.
Now back to my fashion project…
In true Carrie form, and sticking to the story in the book, I used pink nail polish to paint my name across the front of the bag. I won’t give too much away, I think if you have read the book you might understand my need to replica this item, as it is quite a significant piece of the story.
Fiction or not, you my dearest Carrie will always be one of my greatest fashion (and life) inspirations
