workwear wednesday: carried away

In honor of the Sex and the City 2 movie premiere tonight [which I am sadly not attending! I guess I am a real adult], I decided to do workwear Carrie Bradshaw style..

The longer I look at this outfit, the more convinced I am that this is an actual outfit Carrie wore... Anyone know? I thought I made it up, but CB is so far inside my unconscious who can tell. I had a hard time deciding if she'd go with a sheath dress or fit-n-flare, but I knew she'd dig those shoes [she definitely already owns them], and the weird, totally impractical bag.

Wouldn't it be nice to get to dress up like this for work everyday? It's a "sitting pretty" look, I think. I've decided assistants just cannot wear heels successfully. I'll have to wait for a promotion to get some use out of all those damn things sitting, and waiting, in my closet..

P.S. In perfect timing, it's also Fleet Week in NYC... reminding me of one of my all-time favorite S&TC episodes. I snapped this photo on 5th ave and immediately thought of Samantha.

"Seamen, 12 o'clock!"

"I pray when I turn around there are sailors... because with her, you never know."
