I don’t think that it’s any secret that I love Carrie Bradshaw and “Sex and the City”. I went through a three week period late last year where I legitimately binge watched all six seasons and both movies. It was a problem. That being said, it’s probably no surprise that I fell in love with this skirt – “The Carrie Skirt” to be more specific (yes, that’s actually the name) from one of my favorite new brands – Fevrie. The skirt is just fabulous. The midi feels modest yet modern with its long hem and sheer, shiny black checkered pattern. Luckily I was able to wear it out for a bit sans tights and thick boots thanks to a beautiful and uncharacteristically lovely winter day last week (obviously pre-snowpocalypse).
I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t a teensy bit chilly. I guess it’s just one of those things you get used to. I’m one of those people who is almost always cold anyway, so I might as well feel a little cute opposed to bundled up like a burrito. This outfit felt a little fifties with the shrunken sweater (scored for only $15 via the super amazing winter Gap sale), a shorter heel and my amazing new structured bag from Red Clover. While I don’t think that Carrie ever really wore any heel lower than five inches, I still felt like I was channeling her a bit – the Carrie that went to Paris and instinctively felt like she had to be more chic like all those gorgeous French women seem to be, of course.
While the closest I’ll get to Paris any time soon is this outfit and a Trader Joe’s baguette, I’ve got my fingers crossed that the opportunity presents itself soon. If it does, you can bet this is what I’ll be wearing.
If you’re as in love with this skirt as I am, I’ve got great news for you! The Fevrie site has tons of gorgeous pieces that I’m sure would look amazing on women of all shapes and sizes.
