Get Carried Away by the Fashion in The Carrie Diaries!

I have noticed as of late that many tv shows are really stepping up their game when it comes to wardrobes and costumes for the show. I am a fan of shows such as Gossip Girl, The Carrie Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, Revenge, etc and I have taken note of some great fashion pieces I am seeing. I want to do a series of posts on these shows, some of my favorite outfits and touch base on the individuals responsible for making these amazing wardrobe decisions. First up, The Carrie Diaries!

The Carrie Diaries is preparing to start in its 2nd season this fall and if the fashion is anything like that from season 1 then I can’t wait! One of the main individuals behind finding these great pieces is the ever-talented Eric Daman, Daman is an emmy-nominated costume designer, television personality and author. He has left his mark on the fashion world by helping to showcase such great fashion on major shows that are also some of my personal faves, such as Sex and the City, and Gossip Girl. And of course now, The Carrie Diaries. I am going to work hard to touch base with this amazingly talented man with such a creative eye, but for now, take a look at some of my favorite outfits showcased in The Carrie Diaries, season 1.

The purse is a Mark Cross, “Scottie”, small satchel. Its the perfect basic black handbag, perfect size, not too big or too small.

All great dresses and right from the start, the very 1st episode. First, there is the TopShop sequin skater dress. Paired so perfectly with the bold neon orange heels by Alice & Olivia. 2nd pic, the ever-cute pink and polka dot dress, vintage, by Arnold Scaasi dress, which was altered a bit for AnnaSophia Robb, and a Theory crinoline was added to it. 3rd pic, another vintage Scaasi dress in black with a multi-colored sparkle effect. The outfit was complete with a green denim jacket from H&M.

      I will be doing another look back piece and hopefully at some point, if I could do an interview with you, a featured piece on you! I am just such a fan of how you create the fashion magic you do on shows like The Carrie Diaries and Gossip Girl. You really do a phenomenal job of bringing the characters to life thru their fashion ensembles!

    • I agree! She pulls everything off so effortlessly. I would try, but probably not look as great! Thanks for reading my post and I am glad you enjoyed it!
