Do you all remember the episode of Sex & the City where Charlotte has a miscarriage, which leaves her crying on the couch in her jammies watching an Elizabeth Taylor documentary? Eventually Charlotte pulls herself together and in a show of bravery, she goes out the door in this epic dress a la Audrey Hepburn. It’s one of my very favorite fashion moments of all time. In the midst of crisis, she is feminine, sophisticated, and oozing with glamour. Charlotte was always my favorite SATC gal – a go-getter tough girl with a candy-coated princess exterior.
When I feel down, I like to dress up too. The last couple of days have been a bit stressful for me, so I couldn’t think of better inspiration than this moment. Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is just suck it up and get it together, you know? What do you all like to do to de-stress?
“Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.” – Elizabeth Taylor
It feels good to try something a little different on the blog. More fashion icon inspiration posts will be coming soon. Thank you all for reading, your sweet comments are what keep me going at this. 🙂
PS – I’m linking up with Sarah’s Real Life “everything old is new again” challenge! The dress, shoes, and earrings seen here I’ve had for 3+ years and I still love em! This is proof that you don’t have to have the hottest new thing off the rack to look fabulous.
