It's a shame that one of the only women I consider as one of the best fashion icons is fiction. Carrie Bradshaw has broken more style rules than I can remember though the Sex and the City series, but she still remains one of the biggest fashionistas I know. She has taught me many things throughout the series (but not a lot of actual relationship stuff) that has stuck with me. These lessons are from the most fashionable woman out there, and she's proving that fashion is absolutely timeless.
1. Your life is never at a standstill when you have a pair of really great shoes.
"The fact is, sometimes it’s really hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes. That’s why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun."
2. You need a really big closet.
"I like my money where I can see it – hanging in my closet."
3. There's no such thing as too extravagant.
"A relationship is like couture—if it doesn’t fit perfectly, it’s a disaster."
4. It's ok to wear your PJs outside sometimes.
"No matter how fast paced the city is, I always manage to get my clothes on before I leave the apartment."
5. Not everyone can keep white clean.
"I will never be the woman with the perfect hair, who can wear white and not spill on it."
6. Accessories are never too bold.
"Maybe the best any of us can do is not to quit, play the hand we’ve been given, and accessorize the outfit we've got."
7. Diamonds make everything classy.
"I have a style, and jewelled panties aren’t it."
8. You don't need a reason to buy more shoes.
"I’ve spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!"
9. Matching is not a requirement.
"I will not be judged by you or society. I will wear whatever I want as long as I can breathe."
10. Dress for yourself.
"You shouldn’t have to sacrifice who you are just because somebody else has a problem with it."
