‘The Carrie Diaries’ Fashion: What Carrie Wore

After the tragic Sebastian/Carrie breakup last week, young Miss Bradshaw is back at Interview, pitching stories and trying to move beyond her role as personal cappuccino fetcher. She also strikes up a hot new romance with a young playwright (we will mourn her relationship with Sebastian a little bit less because #HEY Weaver), and meets her dad’s new girlfriend for the first time. Carrie changes a lot throughout this episode, so we got the costume deets and backstory for a few of the outfits from the show’s costume designer, Eric Daman.

When she’s at Interview, of course, CB is spending time in New York rather than Connecticut, so she needs to stand out. Eric described his reasoning behind Carrie’s polka dot dress during the episode’s opening montage: “This ModCloth dress had me seeing spots and made Carrie a stand out style star on her lunch break. I gave her a vintage belt and beads for some B52’s/80’s inspired retro realness. Her Jessica Simpson color-blocked sandals are perfectly in tune and keep the look aspirational AND affordable!”

Carrie heads to see Weaver’s play (and potential first interview) in the neon, cutout, bodycon dress we spotted a few months ago: unsurprisingly, she catches his eye. Before she heads out on a second date with him, she has to entertain her dad’s girlfriend, Deb, and her son, Dylan. Dylan asking to see Carrie and Dorritt’s “juggs” (“boob jugs have two Gs”) was A.) disgusting, and B.) LOL. Where is this pervert learning his lingo? Actually, nevermind, I don’t want to know.

Finding an outfit appropriate for her meet and greet at home and her date was a styling challenge. Eric explained, “Since Carrie’s CT style is very different than her NYC style, this McQueen sweater dress was the perfect piece to embody both lifestyles. The pink bugs and beads keep Carrie cute and sweet for dinner. The hip hugging silhouette and too cool for school Alexis Bittar lucite bangle keep Ms. Bradshaw’s city slicker chic persona perfectly. Her rose gold Ferragamo flats are classic and the best of both worlds.”

When she breaks the news to Larissa that she won’t be writing a tell-all story about Weaver, she is lookin’ sharp and verrrrry profesh. Eric told us, “For me this outfit is very video generation. Carrie has ’I want my MTV’ style written all over her! The striped, cutout Topshop tee and angular, yoke-waist Maison pencil skirt scream new wave hit and Carrie’s hot pink Nine West pumps and colorful vintage necklace/bangle combo are OMG Valley girl-icious!”
