An Open Letter to Girls Who Think They’re Carrie Bradshaw

But after landing at JFK and moving into a shoebox of an apartment, I couldn’t help but wonder: was Bradshaw, beloved sex columnist turned fabulous fashion icon, stringing us along the whole time? Does she secretly laugh every time another wide-eyed ingénue moves to the Big Apple, in search of labels and love?

The Stupidest Stuff Carrie Bradshaw Ever Said [Photos]

Carrie was always my favorite because I loved the men she dated (AIDEN!) and wish I lived her life as a fabulous writer in NYC. I would listen to her narrations and hang on every word. Whenever she'd begin a sentence, "And I couldn't help but wonder...", I knew words of wisdom were about to follow. But now I have a bone to pick with Ms. Bradshaw.

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Sarah Jessica Parker is Simply Chic

Of course I also have to respect SJP as a fashionista, because she is fearless, not afraid to mix different patterns, and is willing to embrace any aesthetic. She's always fun to watch, and I love that in a fashionista.

Can We Just Leave Carrie Alone Yet?

Can We Just Leave Carrie Alone Yet?

She’s an aspiration. You know you’ll never have her closet or her men or her friends who always seem to always have time to grab lunch with her despite their real jobs. She’s pure fiction, but I still love her. And now she’s going to be ruined.

An Open Letter to Sex & The City

An Open Letter to Sex & The City

We city dwellers and big-city hopefuls would greatly appreciate it if you didn't create another Sex & The City movie. Ever heard the term "three's a crowd?" Yeah, well, however cliché it may sound, it's incredibly appropriate for your dreams of a potentially disastrous third movie. So, since we've been hearing rumors that it's a possibility, we thought it was a good time to sit down and talk.

Forget About Everyone Else – Embrace YOU

Forget About Everyone Else – Embrace YOU

In today’s society, it’s hard to be perfect when outlandish images of flawlessness are everywhere. Singers, actresses and even our favorite bloggers conveniently have everything that we don’t. So do our cousins, classmates and the girls in our innermost circles. Instead of embracing our flaws and appreciating the redeeming qualities we have, we compare and contrast ourselves with anyone who’s “better.”

Okay, before you throw your Choo Steve Madden heel at me, give me a chance. I know "adding sparkle" to your wardrobe sounds like some weird thing Carrie Bradshaw/one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta would do, but trust me: adding a little bling to your wardrobe is the best way to beat the cold-weather fashion blahs.

The Weekly Ten: Best Fictional BFFs

This week, as I caught up on my favorite fall shows (and watched some Sex and the City reruns) I couldn’t help but notice a running trend: female friendships. Sure some shows were about shopping (or singing while shopping) and some were about saving lives, but at the heart of it all, were some pretty cool chicks.

I'm 23 now and that's practically ancient (especially by CollegeCandy standards). So please forgive me if from now on my blogs can't keep up with youthful lingo and Miley Cyrus references.

Budget Stylista: Hottie Handbags

If Carrie Bradshaw was literally going to be the lady who lived in her shoes, then I will be the lady who lived in her handbags. I guess the upside is that handbags are a lot roomier and more cushion-y than those 12 million pairs of Manolos Carrie rocked on a season to season basis.

If you're a Sex And The City fan (and who isn't!?), you probably recognize this famous look from the opening credits of the show when SJP is flouncing around New York, splashes in a puddle, and sees herself on the side of a bus. Carrie's three-tiered cream-colored tutu dress was such an iconic fashion statement that it even made a cameo in the SATC movie.

None other than the infamous Tucker Max.
