Carrie'd Away


Halston Heritage dress, Banana Republic ring, Steve Madden sandals, Hat from FineFinds

Sex and the City fans, I know you recognize this dress. None other than Ms. Carrie Bradshaw wore it in the latest SATC movie. Earlier this year, real life fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker partnered with Halston and became the chief creative officer for the archived-inspired collection Halston Heritage. It was a perfect match as she was in awe of the brand and wore it so well. I was lucky to spot a few pieces from this collection at 65% off a few weeks ago at the Bay. It was too good to be true and way too good to pass up! After trying on a few tops and dresses, I came home with this metallic striped two-tiered dress in a striking violet. With its silhouette-flattering pleating and flowy layers, it's one of those dresses to love forever.

Thanks to our newly engaged friends for lending their backyard for some quick photos before the engagement party. J and I are so proud to be the best man/maid of honour and we're both looking forward to the year ahead. From checking out venues and reviewing the guestlist to picking the flowers and cake, we're loving the involvement in working towards a beautiful summer 2011 wedding. It's good practice, right?

Gorgeous dress, Carolina! You're such a classy lady... and I recently discovered the new HBC too! I scored a pair of Halston Heritage flats for ~$60 from $250 and picked up a few RL polos for the bf at a great price. I finally understand why my mother has always loved that place, haha!

Have a great day!
