Monday's Muse: Charlotte York

Ok, so I know that Charlotte York isn't a real person, but as a fan of Sex and the City and having loved it and watched it faithfully for almost ten years (well, more if you include re-runs and the movie), I sometimes feel like she is real. A fervent believer in true love, Charlotte is ever stylish; classic tailoring, feminine elegance make her today's muse.

Charlotte's first wedding to Trey MacDougall was supposed to be a fairytale and she looked the part in a full skirted Vera Wang gown. Practically mandatory for a Park Avenue Princess!

The Badgely Mischka gown Charlotte marries Harry Goldenblatt is beautiful and demure- classic Charlotte, albeit a little older and little wiser.
I admire the timeless look of both styles, something I imagine is difficult to achieve however it would be wonderful to look back in the years to come and not cringe at the fashions of the day.

Oh, and I am not the only one to covet Charlotte's ele
gant Park Avenue apartment am I?

The Baccarrat crystal, the vases with fresh white roses and the perfectly polished surfaces create a feminine and comfortable space I'd love to call home.

Who are your muse's? Is there anyone you would like to see featured? I'd love to hear from you!

I've been thinking on this one since you posted it and I still can't find an answer. I suppose I draw my inspiration from so many beauties, bloggers and people that I can't think of one.

I never could pick my favourite SATC girl- Charlotte is probably most like me, I love Carrie's quirks and Miranda's strength! Plus Sam has such a sense of humour!

Thank you for your lovely posts girls (and Paul!!).
Ms Polka- I could never pick a favourite SATC girl either however I think Charlotte is my husband's favourite because he always thought the other's dressed "weirdly"!!

My boy prefers charlotte too! Even, he was the one who got me to to satc all those years ago.

Oh, how I loved her Badgely Mischka gown. Although I do love the vivienne westwood gown, I could make the dress look good, sorry sjp, a bit to skinny for it!
