The Carrie Diaries Pt. 1

Who caught the premiere of "The Carrie Diaries" last night? The show is the prequel to "Sex in the City" where the audience gets to learn how Carrie Bradshaw weaves through the crazy life in Manhattan. Taking place in the 80's--one of the most revolutionary fashion periods--the characters are found in bright, bold colors (my favorite kind!), extravagant hair and make-up, and music you gotta love!

Meet Carrie Bradshaw

Meet the eager Carrie Bradshaw. She's a sixteen year old girl living in 1984. She has a love for her family, writing, and the big city life. But Carrie struggles with the lost of her mother, battling with her rebel sister, and trying to find her identity. Of course, Carrie is determined to discover who she is, and has friends to help guide her through the maze.

Played by Anna Sophia Robb, Carrie is a fashionista. She loves the bold prints and colors, and you may describe her style as subtle, professional, and girly.

Get Carrie's look when you pair a ruffle dress with a leopard cardigan. Complete the look with a waist belt and pumps, perfect for a girl ready to take over Manhattan!

Carrie can't tackled her problems alone, which is why she was loyal friends!

Meet Maggie

Played by Katie Findlay, Maggie isn't really the best of role models. Being that she may drink and is sexually active, viewers can tell that Maggie herself is battling with her own quest in self-discovery (though that's my opinion!) Get Maggie's outrageous look in a neon, knit top paired with bright pants. Complete the look with bright tennis shoes, neon earrings, and a rubber watch (a totally trend back in the 80's!) And if you're looking to be bolder, experiment with bright eyeshadow colors and bright lipstick. Totally 80's!

Meet Mouse

Mouse, played by Ellen Wong, has her own issues to tackle. After losing her virginity to the guy she loved, she's wondering whether or not he still loves her. Mouse's look, unlike her best friends, is not as wild; however, her simple, girly look indicates she's the innocent one in this new series. Get Mouse's look with a pullover sweater, jeans, and classic slip-on Toms. Create a side bang using clips for an extra sweet look.

Be sure to catch the new series every Monday at 8/7c on the CW. More to come later on! Lata dolls!

Complete the look with minimum jewelry pieces (you do not want to disrupt the movie). Apply some mousse to your hair, brush your gorgeous locks, and you are set for a night out!


Back-To-School Party

After a successful week of school, perhaps it's time for you and a few buds to whine down and have a little get together. Invited friends to a small party with music and snacks. Be a fabulous hostess in a sheer blouse, frilled skirt, and black pumps. Then complete the look with a long, pendant necklace. Bonus points if your top has a studded collar!


University Visit

Weekend Looks: University Tour
Sweatshirt, Jacket, Jeans, Boots, Scarf
The weekend provides time to take a trip to your choice school. Schedule a school tour, and dress appropriately. Try a sweatshirt with jeans and a leather jacket. Complete the look with a scarf of beanie if the weather is chilly. Considered you will be doing some walking, switch out your heels for tennis shoes or boots.

Well, that's all for now loves! Have a great weekend!

Well, I am here to suggest outfit ideas for those who would love to get a pair, but have no idea on how to style them.

Stud Muffin

Looking for a causal, rocker glam look? Pair the pants with a studded shoulder sweatshirt, a studded cuff bracelet, and spiked-tipped flats. Finish the look with a gorgeous cream clutch.

Causally dress these pants up with a plain, white tee and a blazer. Then top the outfit off with cute booties, a bow necklace, and flower earrings.

Be bold and beautiful when you pair these pants with a bright sweater, like in blue. Then finish the look with a plum beanie, Roxy backpack, Converse, and an elephant pendant necklace (I too have an elephant necklace!)

That's all for now, loves. Have a great day!
