Sex and The City plays on Foxtel here in Australia continuously and lately they've been showing series 3 and 4 which are my favourites, along with the end of series 6(Carries clothes in Paris!).
In series 3 and 4 Carrie starts to wear more vintage, floral dresses and of course the flower corsage.
I was going to keep this dress to sell at the next Round She Goes market, but after watching an episode the other night where she is wearing a mauve, floral, vintage dress with huge gold belt I felt so inspired I decided to alter the dress and keep it.
I tried in vain to locate a picture of the dress but no matter how many SATC references I typed into google it turned up nix. I think I've narrowed it down to series 3, episode 37, 'Drama Queens.' If you know what I'm talking about leave a comment!
What I did discover however is the influence Patricia Fields and Carrie's wardrobe still holds, more than 10 years after the show began.
This is what my dress used to look like, I've lowered the neckline and taken the hem up. I might get sick of it which is not unusual for me(!), but as Spring has arrived in Melbourne it's sitting very pretty in my wardrobe.
Dress: Savers, $12. Read it and weep.
