when i’m at an airport news concession and see teen mom or TLC stars on the cover of the US weekly i SO depend on getting me through my takeoff angst- i walk, so i get it… if you don’t watch the RHNY (and don’t realize that RHNY stands for real housewives of new york) a. don’t judge, b. i don’t blame you if you’ve already lost interest, c. i argue to say you’re missing out on the ‘real’ carrie bradshaw, aka carole radziwill. i’m appalled at how little coverage there is on her much admired sense of style. would i go piece for piece, or naturally gravitate towards her selects- probably not. from forever 21 to alaîa- she pulls it all off. she’s smart, funny, and manages to maintain her class, not an easy feat with this bunch of cooks. after many a google search coming up short, i’ve decided the best way to uncover the style of carole is to source items she’s worn this season. my first segment is focused on the best trip ever with my tv bffae’s in turks last week, carole’s suitcase was pretty zimmermann heavy, above are some of the key items she packed. a friend of mine recently shined some light on how to maintain one’s respect while tuning into the the real housewives of anywhere, with this simple rule: we draw the line at jersey and atlanta- BH, OC, NY- all fair game.
