Spring Style: Happy Birthday to Sarah Jessica Parker Looks
My “coming of age” period was centered around the trials, tribulations and styles of Sarah Jessica Parker’s character, Carrie Bradshaw. Each new season of Sex and the City sent me scrambling to my local boutiques, department stores and thrift stores to catch the latest Carrie Bradshaw look.
Two years ago, I was starstruck and elated to meet the sassy lady behind the Carrie Bradshaw fashion phenomenon, Patricia Field, at the Fashion Night Out Las Vegas at Crystals. Pat (I can call her Pat because I pretend we’re tight like that) was known for mixing expensive designer pieces with thrift store finds.
“Pat has such a laid back, funky and cool style all her own and it was obvious she was the origin of every fun and fabulous outfit Carrie Bradshaw ever walked down 5th Avenue in. The truth is that Carrie Bradshaw’s fashion was one-third responsible for the show’s addictive force, in my opinion, with the city and characters coming in second and third place. As Pat said during the runway show, ‘Sometimes things that don’t match go together the best.’ I quite agree, Pat.” – tonispilsbury.com read more here
