Day 6: The Last Stop on My Tour de Carrie Bradshaw

What I'm wearing: Urban Outfitters maxi dress, Target sandals, Thrifted scarf as belt, Bangles from Old Navy, J.Crew, Forever 21, and street vendors. My nails are Hint of Mint-Nicole by OPI

Like millions of other women, I'm a huge Sex and the City fan. I wasn't old enough to watch the show when it was originally on tv (nor did I have cable back then), but when I was old enough, I went out and bought the seasons on dvd and was instantly hooked. Last summer while in NYC, I did my own little tour de Carrie Bradshaw, but I missed a stop: 66 Perry Street. That is the location where they shot the exterior of Carrie's apartment, even though it was actually supposed to be on the Upper East Side. Ever since discovering that there is an actual address you can visit, I've been dying to get my picture taken on the front stoop, a la Miss Bradshaw. Ideally I would have been wearing a white fluffy tutu like she does at the beginning of the show, but a black maxi dress and fun printed scarf will have to do.

Love the colour against the black. That must have been so fun and exciting I love Sex and the City too.

Oh, it's so pretty! I have to say, I do feel bad for the people who live there -- they had to put up a "no trespassing" sign?! Goodness... Rabid Carrie fans? Haha...

Perfect look for visiting Carrie's spot :) I giggled when I saw the No Trespassing sign... Poor owners!
