Thrift Inspiration, Carrie Vintage Style

Hi everyone!! Wishing you all a very Happy and Peaceful Easter.

This weekend I was inspired yet again by Carrie's vintage dresses. Sex and The City started in the 90s and each season there are many of her looks and outfits that I find so inspirational.

My favourite look are her simple vintage slip dresses:


SATC Season 4 vintage dress


SATC Season 4 vintage dress

SATC Season 2, Carries $7 vintage dress

A recent boot sale find was this cream vintage slip dress, which like Carries white floral one-picture one, is quite sheer, but a perfect summer vintage day dress

I'm wearing flat silver sandals and a Topshop denim jacket, thrifted last year

What type of dresses are inspiring you for summer day and evening wear this year?

I think this is my all time favorite outfit on you. Is very summery, classic, delicate at very up to the 2011 Spring trends.

That dress is so pretty on you! I love Carrie's style, my favourite season was Number 5 when she had her hair cut into a bob. Have a lovely Easter! xx

I love Carrie's SATC style too, I loved that she was experimental and different. Your dress is a great summer find.

Happy Easter. x

Sharon, YOUR dress is beautiful - (and I'm a huge denim jacket fan)!

I will be in the market for a dress in a few weeks. Currently, I'm more comfortable in 2 piece outfits, but there's nothing like a beautiful, well-fitting dress.

The Seeker said...

Oh my dear, you look so beautiful, so stylish and trendy. Love it!!!

(I just envy your sun.... here it's still so cold :S )

Hope you had a nice and blessed Easter.

I have been drooling over those first two of Carrie's vintage dresses for as long as I can remember, lol! Especially the dark one with the pink floral print. Siiiigh!

I absolutely love your vintage dress find! The shape is just wonderful. I've been in love with summer dresses for years now -- to me there just perfect. I'm trying to wear more dresses now, during the last months of pregnancy, because the weather's warming up over here. To me there's just nothing like a great dress! :o)

Dear Sharon, I love your dress! Carrie's dresses you've chosen are fabulous. Very simple and stylish.

As you know I live in dresses, I have lots of summer ones I've never or hardly worn. I'm going to hunt down some bargain boho statement jewellery to jazz them up for my holiday xx
