Während die meisten sich ihr Leben lang mit der Frage beschäftigen, ob sie nun eine Charlotte, Samantha, Miranda oder eben Carrie sind, hat Internet-Sensation Dan Clay sich vor langem entschieden.

In der Kategorie “Bestes aus dem Internet” haben wir diese Woche einen eindeutigen Gewinner – Carrie Dragshaw. Der 32-jährige New Yorker und diehard Fan der Kultserie Sex and the City rockt sein Grid mit den 1:1 Drag-Nachbildungen der angesagtesten Looks der wohl berühmtesten Sex-Journalistin aller Zeiten – Carrie Bradshaw.

Was als ein lustiges Halloween-Outfit Bild begann, wurde bald von einer SATC Fanpage repostet und fand schnell den Weg zu niemand anderem als Mrs Big aka Sarah Jessica Parker. Die Schauspielerin kommentierte den Look mit “a triumph” und der Rest ist Geschichte.

Nicht nur hat Clay den Look der Protagonistin bis ins minutiöseste Detail drauf, auch seine Captions sind Carries Schreibstil nachempfunden und könnten ohne Weiteres genau so im New York Star veröffentlich werden.

Und als wir nach dem perfekten 7 Dollar Kleid zu unseren 300 Dollar Schuhen suchten, kamen wir nicht umhin uns zu fragen: Sind wir nicht alle ein bisschen Carrie?

As I stepped past BeBe, my new BF headed to AA. My life was full of letters—D&G, DKNY, CK1, APC, Agnes B. (and DSW on the DL)—so why be scared of two more? As I obsessed over his addiction, I couldn’t help but wonder: Was I just as drunk? My vision of our future blurred because I took in too much of his past? And did we all spend so much time downing someone’s setbacks that we blacked out their strengths? After all, what is AA except a room full of people who had the courage to change. Just like Gucci in ’94, sometimes you have to reinvent yourself to survive. In life, everyone’s problems are different—but what if the stuff that helps us survive is all the same? The strength to look past a past full of pain. The heart to beat a scary disease. The bravery to look into a broken marriage and believe you deserve more. The courage to look into a mirror, broken, and believe you can be more. The daily heroism of living with anxiety or depression, loneliness or loss. The strength to not let a break up break you. The balls to love your body. The pride to love yourself. The simple power to not let anything—anything—take you down. I realized, every person you will ever pass on any sidewalk in any city has two things in common: We all have pain. And we haven’t given up. We hide it on the inside because we think it makes us look weak. But what if our pain is also our power? Because anyone who dares to create a „New You“ learns this, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly: You’re so much stronger than you think you are. #CarrieDragshaw

A wise poet once said, “All the world’s a stage.” Maybe that’s why there’s so much drama. As I strolled around the kingdom of Manhattan—a drag queen dressed like a prom queen acting like a drama queen—I started thinking about royalty. In medieval times, rulers would wage war over petty jealousies and slight provocations. Were modern times really any different? Our screens exploded with screaming matches and Twitter clapbacks and backstabbing frenemies. Somewhere, it seemed, we decided that having a complicated life makes you more interesting. Having haters makes you important. Still, I couldn’t help but wonder: Are some fights better left unfought? Sure, mountains over mole hills makes for high-ratings reality TV, but maybe actual reality is better if you just flow with it. Maybe the new kings in the court of emotions could be kindness and humility. In modern-day New York, one of the most insulting adjectives is “basic.” But maybe it was time go back to the basics: Don’t fight. Don’t call people names. Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody. Love the people who love you. Don’t pay too much attention to the people who don’t. And when in doubt, be kind. You never regret kindness. That day, I decided to leave the drama to the costume department. After all, you can dress like a prom queen without acting like a high schooler, and you can live a very happy life if you stop looking for reasons to be upset. Real housewives might fight, but real queens fix each other’s crowns. #CarrieDragshaw _______________ Happy Fashion Week 😉 Today’s caption/picture combo was inspired by a “Dear Carrie” question. Link in bio for the full answer, and a bunch more, covering everything from first dates to lost friendships. Sending lots and lots of love 💖
