Style Crush: Carrie Bradshaw

Remember the good old days of Sex and the City on television? Admittedly, I am a huge fan but the recent big screen SatC movies weren't exactly overwhelmingly good. Back in the 2000s, I impatiently waited for each new episode of Sex and the City to come out and there are no words to describe how much I wanted to be in New York with an unlimited budget, going shopping ALL DAY LONG only stopping for the occasional meal, coffee or sweet treat.
A lot of the things that Carrie wore back then are a little outdated now (the series started in the 90s after all and although 90s clothes might be hipster-ish but it was/is not my favourite fashion decade). There are, however, some iconic looks that Carrie managed to pull of like no-one else: the tutu, celebrating New Years in a pyjama, wearing black bras with white blouses and layering a whole waggonload full of pearl necklaces and so on.
I always hoped that watching SatC and seeing how Carrie goes about town would induce me with a little extra confidence to mix and match pieces that I wouldn't usually combine or to try out new things. I'd like to think it worked at least a litte...
