following in Carrie’s footsteps…

Having a laugh at Serafina
After dinner Michael and I took the cab and train back home
Dress, coat & bag: Thrift. Boots: All Saints. Beret: H&M?
I met with up with fashion blogger Erika from Fashion Chalet last week when she was in New York. We went to The New York Public Library and took photos on the same steps that Carrie from Sex and The City climbed in a jaw dropping gown for her (1st failed attempted) marriage to Mr Big.
Even though it was pouring outside, we had a blast being in such a magnificent marbled structure. (I so need to go back).
More pictures are on Erika’s blog here.

    One day when I get to New York that’ll be the first place I head to. Skip the hotel, straight to the library. Its such a gorgeous building, and I’ve always been enfatuated with the smell of old books.

    Love Grace.
