pc: just googleMy main reason for loving Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the City, aside from her chic and unique sense of style and sexy quick wit, is the fact that she's a writer; this also applies to Rebecca Bloomwood of Confessions of a Shopaholic. Being a writer and Journalism major myself, seeing two of my life's main components being played out on screen always provides me with superior inspiration, both fashionably as well as writing related. My friends and family complain as I journal while watching movies or shows at home, arguing that I'm not really watching the movie; although I am watching, just picking up on a different component.
The longing question that resonates in my mind is, what is the link between fashion and writers? Why is it that writers are often portrayed as original, confident, and eccentric trendsetters? Does this just make for good fiction heroine material or is there a subconscious relation? Well, both disciplines call for self exploration and an open minded pioneer; and the best of both writing and fashion are intensely made up of deep creativity and dominant originality, making their harmonious union seem fated.
This brings me to a few different announcements, like the fact that I am more than a little excited to see the upcoming Sex and the City sequel; the few photos that have been leaked, like those of SJP in 80's attire, already have me excitedly inspired. In addition, Sex and the City author, Candace Bushnell, is soon releasing The Carrie Diaries, which is sure to be a great read. Lastly, I'm launching a project really soon, and I really hope you love it!
