Inspiration: Shows That Made Me Re-Think My Wardrobe!

{1. Sex & the City - I'm not sure anything needs to be said!}


















I think at one time or another we have all dreamed about being the matriarch (or the spoiled daughter) of a  wealthy tycoon, or having unlimited spending accounts in NYC or how about having a famous fashion-designer mom? Chances are, most of us won't live out that fantasy but we can most certainly watch others play it out for us. I like many, like a wide variety of TV shows, from Dexter to CSI to Survivor. But some of the shows (past and present) that have remained a permanent fixture in my mind are ones that I can relate to on a stylistic level. Here are some the shows over the years that I have drawn inspiration from and still do!

{2. Dynasty. Some of the clothes would be considered out there, but overall this show was a fixture of any fashionista in the 80's and many still draw inspiration from it today...I'd wear most of what is in this picture}








{3. When SATC ended, it left a fashion void on TV, until Gossip Girl stole our fashion hearts}



{4. Love or hate this show, or the women in it, you cannot deny this was a style source for many of us}

  2. I love that you included The Hills...while the show was controversial, I always loved their style on the show. And of course Gossip Girl always made me want to redo my entire wardrobe.

  3. SATC forever! I still watch reruns like I've never seen it before, even though I've seen every episode 100 times.

  4. The Hills! That has to be my main reference for styling a few years back - while I love SATC watching it as a teen I couldn't exactly afford Manolos, but I could dream! The Hills and Gossip Girl is where I think I've drawn most of my style and inspiration from for sure. What an awesome post, definitely taken me back down memory lane hehehe!

    1. I agree! When SATC was on the air, Manolo's were a reach for me! But I still loved emulating their style non the less!

  7. I can't wait for the new Sex in the City/Carrie show! The pastel and neon goodness of the 80's is so fun to wear!
