style + functional = the best of both worlds!

So, I’m watching TV and hear the line: There is stylish. There is functional. And then, there are both.

Naturally, I start thinking about fashion.  What exactly does it mean to wear the outfit, and not let it wear you?

When questioning myself, the person/character that came to mind was none other than the infamous Carrie Bradshaw Preston.  I heart everything about her – her whimsical nature, delicious taste for style and of course her delectable shoe game. Undoubtedly, we owe all thanks and gratitude to the wonderful Patricia Field. However, anyone can by styled, but only a handful can own it!

SJP killed every outfit that graced her small frame. The Paris ensemble and the dapper day-to-day ensembles have stolen not only my heart, but also the hearts of fashion-forwards.

There are many people who are stylish. Yet, they are classified stylish because of their ability to put together pieces of clothing.

Take it from Carrie – Whether in a snug mini, 5” stacked platforms or wearing an outfit only you understand, don’t give in to the temptation of feeling less than yourself.  Carrie has worn some of the oddest pieces. Nonetheless, she was always comfortable and transformed from odd to chic, gracefully, while in front of the cameras.

Not only are we buying into her fashionable taste, but we are captivated by her infectious laugh, biting of her lower-lip and her girlish skip as she crosses streets. Carrie is ultimately being Carrie – no bars holding back.

Always remember: Style transcends to functional when you don’t lose touch of your personality and who you truly are.
