Inspiration

I am guilty of spending my days and nights watching re-runs of Sex and the City. The show has an endless amount of inspiration and Carries outfits are always fabulous if not a little bit wacky.
This picture had made me lust after thigh high grey socks. Whilst wandering around endless amounts of shops looking for said socks I also managed to buy a gray maxi skirt, pink cropped tee, leopard print blouse, 3 pairs of sunglasses and 2 rings. Oooops. I also managed to find the socks in River Island. I got them in grey, white and black. I think I need to find a cheaper hobby. Now all I need to figure out is how to style these thigh high socks so that I don't look like a 5 year old school girl or a sidewalk hooker. LOL! Wish me luck!

Now off to read my new book - It's called Night World. I stumbled across it whilst wasting time in a book shop. Any of you guys read it?

Happy Sunday x

How can a woman over 40 pull that look off. Perhaps I couldn't because I have daughters that would dress like that! I love that outfit though, the gloves, everything about it!

I love over the knee socks. They are hard to pull of though, maybe with a cute floral dress? would stop the hooker look! x

Ameena said...

SJP can pull of so many looks that I admire but could never replicate!! This is one of them.

roxybelle said...

Oh I could spend days watching SATC and even though people think Carrie looks weird, she's my favorite in the show. I think she's gorgeous and whoever is styling her for the show is a genius :)

nightworld by l.j. smith?? if so yes i've read them all. she was my fav. writer in high school! thanks to twilight they've rereleased all her books. daughters of darkness is my fav story but i loved spellbinder, the chosen and huntress a lot too. my fav. stuff of hers is her secret circle trilogy and dark visions and although i didn't love the vampire diaries books i adore the show.

Kara said...

dancinginchiffon said...

haha...you are not alone! I'd been watching SATC over & over for so many nights because i was inspired by Carrie's wardrobe :)

She's no Plain Jane said...

This is so strange, I was looking at this exact picture of SJP last week wondering how I was goingt o wear my new grey over teh knee socks! Great minds Kirsty! I found they look stunning with denim shorts and black platforms, as well as with floral mini frocks. I wear my black ones literally all the time - so cute with a casual LBD and patent heels! Have fun with them, they're so hot xxx

Kate said...

I love the look Carrie is sporting, but I would totally look like a street walker if I tried to wear it!
If only I could afford all of Carries shoes.....

Adele said...

and the grey knee high craze begins! lol

Talia said...

I really adore over the knee socks. Especially the way she wears them ;)

Maddy said...

I love SATC! I think my favorite style on the show was definitely Charlotte's, though I don't dress like that myself. But I did enjoy her classic sensibility :) Carrie's style is definitely unique and not something I can ever pull off!

Christina said...

Yeah, you are right. I love this look!

kate funk said...

Never read Night World, let it know how it goes! I am guilty of this pleasure too!
