Young Carrie - Summer and the City (Candace Bushnell)

Summer and the City is the second book in the Carrie Diaries series by author and columnist Candace Bushnell. Bushnell is the author of Lipstick Jungle & several other novels, but is best remembered for her column Sex and the City which was used  as a basis for the TV show and movies.

If you want to know how Carrie became a writer, how she got to New York and embraced it's culture, and how she met Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte then this is the book for you. It starts off a little slowly with quite a bit of back story. But she shares the tidbits that we want to know. The second half is more fast paced as Carrie gets into the New York lifestyle and starts finding out who she is and who she wants to become.
I enjoyed the quirky fashion sense that the young Carrie shows in the book, so I put together this style board. It has visuals of some of the clothes mentioned in the book, as well as a peak at AnnaSophia Robb who plays a younger version of Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie in the new series The Carrie Diaries.

Keep an eye out in the next week, because there is going to be a super giveaway of Carrie Diaries' books and Sex & the City gear from Books, Crafts & Pretty Things and Jessi in Wonderland.
In the meantime, keep hunting those retro bargains and remember:
“Eventually all the pieces fall into place….until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment, and know that everything happens for a reason”~Carrie
