My 'Carrie' Dress

So what's the story with this post today? It's not much honestly, these pictures are quite old and I don't know why I never put them up. 
Let's call it a Throwback Tuesday!
This dress reminds me so much of the pink dress Carrie Bradshaw (Sex And The City) wore on a date with Aleksandr Petrovsky, a dress he personally got for her from his 'friend' Oscar (Oscar de la Renta). Sigh, to be friends with Oscar de la Renta... Carrie just always knew the right people! 
In a perfect world I'd want to raid her closet and "borrow" somethings for a lifetime, that's not stealing. Or her phonebook/contact list or just be her best friend lol. Imagine me being the 5th wheel in SATC, that wouldn't even make any sense. 
It's nice to let your imagination run wild once in a while, sha just remember where reality is... and right now for me, it's Lagos Nigeria, NYSC camp Iyana Ipaja to be exact
Dress from Aubin & Wills, Zara shoes, Chanel bag and thrifted belt.
But honestly I day dream and think a lot, sometimes a little too much! I find myself always playing back scenes from my past, thinking of what I could have said or shouldn't have said. Especially when you want to give someone a piece of your mind but the minute you want to, the peace of the Lord overwhelms you and you just brush it off. Meanwhile 2 minutes later you are thinking of all the insults that could have come in handy or how you'd have eyed the victim or given them a good hiss. Some can go as far as slaps and smacks, but physical violence is not for me, thanks!
Ok back to my outfit... I just had to wear my blue shoes that I spoke about in an earlier post. I looove them, I don't care if they go with what I'm wearing or not, I want to wear them All The Time!! I wore this to work anyway, hope you like! 
If you're a SATC fan like me, you should check this old marrie claire post about Carrie's best quotes here. I could remember almost ever episode each quote what used, and why it was said and who it was being said to... ay, I Love SATC! 
I added a few of the quotes after the cut with a few more pictures as well.

Here are a few:
'I like my money where I can see it - hanging in my closet'
'Somewhere out there is another little freak who will love us and understand us and kiss our three heads and make it all better'
'I've done the merry go round I've been through the revolving door I feel like I met somebody I can stand still with for a minute and... don't you wanna stand still with me?'
'I’m looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love.'
'I couldn't understand a word she was saying, but I felt I had in my possession all the Italian I'd ever need to know: Dolce, Dolce, Dolce.'
'Women come to New York for the two L's: Labels and Love.'
'They say nothing lasts forever; dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style.'
'When men attempt bold gestures, generally it's considered romantic. When women do it, it's often considered desperate or psycho.'
'There comes a point in every relationship when romance gives way to reality.'
And this... oh i love this:
'I will never be the woman with the perfect hair, who can wear white and not spill on it.' - I can so relate to this!

  5. The beading on the dress is beautifully and detailed. The material is smooth and of high quality. It has "weight" to it. I cannot believe the deal I got!
