I decided to take a break from my usual Campus Character profiles for this week.
But I must admit I have been spending a lot of time on Hulu lately.
I’m sure most of you can relate right about now.
The amount of time I’ve spent on Hulu has inspired this post.
One show I am absolutely obsessing over is “The Carrie Diaries.”
This is the ultimate 80’s throwback show and such a powerhouse when it comes to wardrobe.
I seriously fall in love with Carrie Bradshaw’s, (the main character) outfit each week.
Not only is she an intern at a fashion magazine on the show; which is a dream of mine, she also lives this glamorized life in New York City.
Even though I am a 90’s child through and through, this show makes me see the 80’s in a whole new light.
And gain a whole new level of appreciation for their clothes and things of that nature.
Each week I tune in to see what awesome dress she’ll be wearing or which awesome purse she gets to tote around.
Or how her curly hair seems to stay perfectly in place…all the time.
She always manages to mix floras, sparkle, animal prints, and solids together so effortlessly.
I am afraid that I would be too nervous to have all that going on.
The sequin dress is quite the attention grabber.
I could just imagine wearing that on campus…yeah right.
I feel like these clothes may be a bit exaggerated; I’m sure not all of the 80’s looked this bright and flashy.
But seriously, that skirt she has paired with the fuchsia jacket is pretty major.
I wouldn’t mind living her life for a day or two.
The show manages to stay true to the 80’s with scrunchies here and there, layered plastic bracelets, high waisted pants.
Of course there is no shortage of puffy dresses, chunky belts, and big hair.
An iconic accessory is the paint splattered, “Carrie” purse which has certainly made a name for itself on the show.
This super edgy purse is sort of like the new initial pendants some girls wear around their neck.
Maybe it’ll be the next big thing.
Who doesn’t want an awesome personalized bag?
I think I’m going to go to goodwill, see what bags I can find, buy some paint and go to town.
Who’s with me?!
Let’s bring the 80’s back.
After all, history often repeats itself and things of that nature…
