Omgah, I just had to comment back to on your SATC comment! "Carrie On" is so perfect because it IS your name! But I personally liked the line from the first movie: "get Carried away" which should totally be the tagline for your blog :)

Intrinsically Florrie said...

I do rather like that Jason Wu! I could see myself wearing that a lot.

Anastasia said...

Ummm your labels are all mixed up! For example, you have marker the Gareth Pugh dress as Eley Kishimoto! Many of the others are wrong too! (although the most obvious is PPQ...)

Also, do we still believe in trends? Aren't these just invented by magazines so that we'll buy more copies?
