"I like my money right where I can see it... hanging in my closet" - Carrie Bradshaw



Happy Friday lovies!!!

it's not technically my Fri since i work tomorrow (c'est la vie!) but i was in a good mood all day so it MUST be Friday. I love Lauren's Fill in the Blanks this week. It's a topic that i have an addiction to (so agrees Max & my check book. I might have just purchased this vintage inspired bathing suit a few minutes ago... it's cute though isn't it?). Yes, you see... i'm a slave to fashion.


1. One fashion trend I really regret is dark lipstick & scrunchies (sorry) .

2. The one thing that always completes any outfit is high heels & a unique piece of jewelry to add a statement piece .


3. I would describe my personal style as
a mixer- i believe in the j.crew fashion sense of mixing "high & low"- a pretty cocktail dress worn over a plain t-shirt (remember this outfit?) a sports shirt tucked into a satin bubble skirt & always heels. I believe in finding gems at thrift stores & throwing on red lipstick.


4. My fashion muse is always Carrie Bradshaw. I would love Sienna Miller's wardrobe & Kate Hudson is always flirty and fun .


5. If I could own one designer piece of clothing it would be a pair of Manolo Blahniks. I've always said if i ever got secure financially, that would be my first splurge .

6. I would love to raid the wardrobe of Carrie Bradshaw's closet. Yes, i know she's fictional, but SJP did get to keep some of her outfits....



7. Today I am wearing a ruffle black skirt i bought in italy during my dolce vita summer, a thrifted flannel button down, heeled moccasins, & messy hair.




also, i was honored to be asked to guest post over at Cassie's blog while she's on holiday. Hop on over to see how i answered her guest post theme? xo

Thank you so much for the comment yesterday. I am feeling somewhat better today and actually looking forward to next week.Miguelitos 1st grade Sing and Humbertos B-day. Oh and just 6 more days left until Sex and The City 2 comes out...
Lots of things going on.

i too feel sorry for my participation in the scrunchie phenomenon...

April said...

I still wear scrunchies, because I think they are convenient! Okay, I only wear them in the gym, but they hold my hair without being too tight. I'm tender-headed. :)

Love the outfit you're wearing today. Seriously.

Erin said...

Oh scrunchies... what WERE we thinking? I also regret gigantic hoop earrings that practically touched my shoulders! And slouch socks. Seriously. They drove me crazy, being all slouchy like that.

You have a great style, Micaela, unique but very Carrie... and one day, I've no doubt, you'll get your Manolos!

Happy Weekend! Soon it will be full-on summer and you'll be at the beach in that fab new bathing suit. LOVE. IT.

Love the bathing suit! It's gorgeous!

Claire Kiefer said...

You're so cute, and I love when you post Micaela pics. :) I'm of course totally with you on SJP and Carrie . . . dream closet! Especially the shoes. :) I wear dresses & heels every day, even on the weekends. Re: Manolos . . . I got a pair at Crossroads, which is a sort of trendy second-hand chain around here, for $42! Black strappy Manolo Blahniks . . . amazing. I also found a pair of patent leather red Miu Miu slingbacks for $36 there, and that same day! It was kind of a dream.

Farah said...

I love SJP too! and I know Carrie Bradshaw is fictional, but I absolutely love her character. And I would love to go through her closet. ;)

Megan said...

Love the quote and that adorable bathing suit. I am very much in sex and the city mode so can relate to your love of Carrie's wadrobe. I love the dress she wears in Paris when shes lying on the bed asleep and Alexander Patrowsky comes in.
Oh and scrunchies, enough said.

danielle and dinosaur toes said...

we would actually have to fight, because i said i wanted to raid sjp's wardrobe since she got to keep the satc outfits!

that makes me want to go try on some of clothes right now and see what i can come up with!

Annie Cristina said...

I love your answers! I would KILL to raid SJP's closet. Alas, I don't think her pieces would look good on me, but on a petite flower like you, a thousand times yes! :)

By the way, I love the tattoo on your foot! Is it a Chinese character? If so, what of? (Yes, I'm nosy. :D)

Jo said...

I love your button down flannel shirt a lot ad the pairing itwith dainty ruffles skirt is great! As much as I would love to raid Carrie's wardrobe, I think the clothes would only look good hanging from the rack and not on me. LOLz

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Gotta love high low outfits! Hope all is well dear!

Lauren Nicole said...

do you remember the whole deal with carrie and burger on SATC with scrunchies? haha, that totally reminded me of that episode. <3

SJP/carrie bradshaw does have amazing style, i could never fit into any of it on account of her size 0 teeny body, but i die at ever screen shot from the first SATC film and the upcoming sequel. SO AMAZING. i don't know how patricia field does it, really, crazy awesome costume designer.

i LOVE your outfit from the day you wrote this. so, so pretty and cute! :]

mina said...

alex and i will be seeing sjp in the flesh tomorrow at a letterman taping! even though i've been terribly disappointed with the movies, these pictures are reminding me how much i used to love the show...and i can't lie, i'm pretty excited!

Kara said...

Love this little quiz!! I hate to admit it but I'm a total Carrie fan too. The only reason I hate to admit it is that my boyfriend would make endless fun of me forever!

missy. said...

Irene said...
