Fur Bolero & Silk Beaded Bag: A Very Carrie Look

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Carrie Bradshaw inspired outfit. I used to do these all the time and actually had a Carrie Bradshaw series which you can see here. A Carrie outfit always has a mix of different prints/textures with a sophisticated edge, and this silk beaded bag is what really reminded me of Carrie’s style. This hand embroidered bag from Jamin Puech with semi-precious stones and braided pearl details is a true gem. It is seriously the most beautiful handbag I’ve ever owned. I love the vibrant color and the sequin details that line the bottom of the bag. There is so much to see at every angle of this bag, making it a true work of art. Layersofchic Fur Bolero Beaded Bag White Boots Street Style NYCLayersofchic Fur Bolero Beaded Bag Jamin Puech Pink SweaterLayersofchic Fur Bolero Beaded Bag NYC Street Street Style

Since I’m wearing such a fancy beaded bag, I didn’t want the outfit to be too dressed up, but rather be more street style with a luxe vibe. So my grey fur bolero from Jocelyn was the perfect choice. This fur bolero is the softest coat ever, it feels like a shaggy pillow! I usually gravitate towards pink or purple colors (which this bolero also comes in), but I thought this wintery grey would be a nice change and go with more outfits. I sized up on the bolero and went with a Medium so that I can wear it with chunky sweaters. I paired the coat with a wide sleeve mauve sweater and midi polka dot skirt for a trendy touch. Layersofchic Fur Bolero Silk Beaded Bag Jamine PuechLayersofchic Fur Bolero Beaded Bag White BootiesLayersofchic JOCELYN Fur Bolero Beaded Bag Wide Sleeve SweaterLayersofchic Fur Bolero Beaded Bag Polka Dot Skirt White Boots

I completed the outfit with white ankle booties that are my shoe of choice this Winter. There is something so effortlessly chic about white boots, they instantly streamline and elevate a look. Lastly, I added a pair of white vintage cuff earrings. This is one of my favorite outfits to date, everything just works together, even the building in the background. I hope you guys like this look as much as I do! Layersofchic Fur Bolero Beaded Bag Polka Dot Skirt Fashion BlogLayersofchic Fur Bolero Beaded Bag White Booties Polka Dot SkirtLayersofchic JOCELYN Fur Bolero Beaded Bag Pink SweaterLayersofchic Fur Bolero Beaded Bag NYC Style Blog

    Inspired combination of textures: the silky skirt, the chunky corduroy shirt, the ‘floofy’ bolero — and that extraordinary beaded purse!. They all work together beautifully. I *love* the red and orange building behind you, too — the location brilliantly showcases your look. What an artist!
