Imitation Game: Carrie from Sex and the City

While a lot of the relationship and story aspects of the show are a little dated, Sex and the City still holds up quite a bit in regards to fashion.  All of the characters have style aspects that I admire, but Carrie Bradshaw has definitely been a constant source of style inspiration One of my favorite “Carrie” looks is from the “I Heart NYC” episode in which Carrie plans a special look for her date night with Big before his move to Napa.
The look included a pretty lace trim slip dress, long colorful jacket, and pink ruffled shoes.
I am obsessed with slip dresses and lingerie-inspired dressing, so I thought this would be a good look to interpret in petite plus size!
I already had this silky slip dress from ELOQUII but had been looking for a pretty jacket to wear over it.
Recently, I found this pretty satin jacquard floral coat from ASOS.  I love how the shiny fabrics of the jacket and dress play off each other for a special, dressed-up feel.
To continue the Carrie inspiration, I styled the look with a nameplate necklace (Cassandra instead of Carrie!), pink faux fur trim heels, and a ring-handled bag.
How did I do with my inspiration?

Are you a Sex and The City Fan? Whose fashion did you admire the most? What were some of your style moments?
