carried away





Shirt: Rodarte for Opening Ceremony; Skirt: Jaeger (first worn here); Shoes: B. Brian Atwood c/o; Clutch: Kate Spade (also love this quirky one); Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: Jewel Mint earrings


While I was not a fan of the second installment of the "Sex and the City" movie series for too many reasons I won't go into now -- I was (and am still) quite smitten with this outfit that Carrie wore to the market or souq in Abu Dhabi. Whimsy but still semi-grounded with a casual tee -- perfectly Carrie and perfect for my own day of casual shopping. Not at a souq mind you, but trust me, it's on my travel bucket-list.

  3. That was one of my (many) favourite Carrie outfits! I LOVE your version Krystal - such a great contrast of boyish tee, verrrrrry pretty skirt and fierce heels. The colours work really well together, the outfit kinda looks like it's thrown together, but of course it really isn't! Looks so fabulous sweetie!

  9. I love it!!!
    For visiting a Souq Abu Dhabi or better UAE, is not a good place to go. They doesn´t exist there actually! You can find there nice Malls, but no Souqs ;)

  17. The movie was actually filmed in Morocco not Abu Dhabi, total mis-conception! However, your always welcome to Dubai!

    Great outfit!

  20. I adore how all of these very different elements harmonize so perfectly together (I'm particularly fond of that quirky Kate Spade clutch of yours!). And this outfit has a very worthy inspiration, even if the movie wasn't so great.

  45. Hello Krystal,

    I've been obsessed with pairing laid back tee's with a more elaborate bottom! I love the fullness of this skirt, and the contrast between it and the shoes!

  55. You are truly making me regret not picking up a RADARTE tee at the Rodarte sample sale last month here in NYC.
    Nonetheless, I love the pairing of grey t-shirt with elegant midi skirt. Quite an intriguing juxtaposition.
