Kooky Carrie

January 27, 2011

(Denim Jacket – QSW, Tunic & Belt – Vintage, Skirt – QSW, Boots – Prada via Crossroads Trading Co., Clutch – Pink Clouds)

So, then there is kooky Carrie.. and it seems these get labeled the “worst” of Carrie.. but it’s these looks that make me swoon. Yes, they are out there.. and yes, they don’t always fit in the real world.. but that is why I love them. They escape real world dressing and they just go for it!

“Hello.. world.. here I am! Life’s my stage.. and I’m having a fun while I’ve got my shot!”

With kooky in mind, I got dressed.. and the result may not hit the highest on the Carrie-Kooky-Meter.. but I had fun mixing things up, forgetting the trends and just playing dress up.Ā 

Before dashing out door to greet my “Big” (though he is really more an Aidan), I grabbed my Pink Clouds clutch that was the final Carrie touch.

    Love the bag, especially since I feel like her kooky outfits long for more color.

  10. January 27, 2011 8:24 am

    This is soooo Carrie. I really like how you pulled it all together with the belt, clutch and fabulous hair!

  11. January 27, 2011 8:37 am

    That bag is making my heart pitter-patter. Love so much.

    BTW – you have PERFECT Carrie hair! This series is so much fun…

  12. January 27, 2011 9:04 am

    LOVE the jacket and bag! Carrie is fearless and definitely an inspiration!

  13. January 27, 2011 9:07 am

    Ahhh, spitting image with the hair like that!
    That clutch is out of this world, love it

  14. January 27, 2011 9:25 am

    Even this, though, is taking a normal outfit to the next level, which I think is much for fun than just being completely out there. That clutch couldn’t be more perfect.

  15. January 27, 2011 9:31 am

    This is so cute!! Slightly kooky, but in the best way possible! LOVE the top and the belt and that clutch is FAB!

  16. January 27, 2011 9:40 am

    You look great! You especially did well with the hair! I think Carrie looks great in those photos too and you do too! šŸ™‚

    You are channeling Carrie so well that I think you could have been her younger version that was walking down the street in the beginning of the movie.

    Love the wild hair and how all of the individual elements of the outfit work so well together and that clutch is icing on the cake.

  18. January 27, 2011 11:01 am

    I am totally loving the outfit ! Absolutely fabulous!

    Love, Cloudy

  20. January 27, 2011 12:18 pm

    I had to do a double take! Love the clutch.

  21. January 27, 2011 12:28 pm

    I am loving this week of Carrie inspired posts! This is another great, fun look. I am now seriously green with envy over your fabulous clutch!! That shape, those colors, that print. G.R.E.E.N.

    P.S. Your hair is perfection!

    Never been a big fan of SJP or the Carrie character and I think your fashion sense is WAY higher and definitely much more interesting…

  23. January 27, 2011 1:10 pm

    In the words of Carrie, all I can say about that clutch is, “Hello, Lover!” It’s drop-dead/jaw-dropping! You’re doing such an amazing job with all of these interpretations. I just can’t wait each day to see which Carrie you pull out next!

  24. January 27, 2011 1:47 pm

    i love this week of carrie inspired looks šŸ™‚


  25. January 27, 2011 2:02 pm

    holy crap. i seriously thought the top picture was carrie.

  26. January 27, 2011 2:19 pm

    The outfit, hair and bag is kooky Carrie on a good day. I love the this look and the Carrie inspired outfits are making me miss the show! šŸ™‚

  27. January 27, 2011 3:24 pm

    I love this look, suits you so well! I got 11 dresses from Beyond Retro the other day, all vintage and I so look forward to wearing them all šŸ™‚

  28. January 27, 2011 3:55 pm

    Forgive me for saying, but I think they should start casting *You* as the New-Younger-Up-and-Coming CB! Loving your “kreatiwiteit”!

      What a sweet compliment.. but I’ll leave the job to SJP.. nobody does it better.

  35. January 28, 2011 7:32 am

    I freaking love it. Your channeling her so well!! Not incredibly kooky but you look great!! And I agree I don’t think Carrie ever had a “worst”:)

  36. January 28, 2011 7:53 am

    that profile shot is fantatstic. you should definitely frame it and give it to your hubby. btw, who takes your photographs?

    • January 28, 2011 8:48 am

      Oh.. so cute! My cute little hubby takes my pics if they are outside.. and then I take my own if they are inside.

    I love this outfit! I really like your make-up here? What products did you use?

    • January 28, 2011 4:41 pm

      Honestly, it is such a mish mash of things. I am trying to start doing some makeup tutorials.. but haven’t had much time lately. I will definitely keep this look in mind when I do start to create them.

  38. January 30, 2011 2:57 pm

    I honestly think this is why Carrie really spoke t people. She was daring, and did what no one else dared to do. She also looked amazing while doing it.

    I am love love loving all of your Carrie inspired looks. I have (like nearly every women in America) been a longtime devotee of the show, but more importantly, the style achievements of Pat Field therein. I often go back to inspire myself, but I love how you carried (lol) through with all of these posts. Kudos!
