Fashion Friday: What A Stud.

Inspired by the SATC:2 filming pics, I was reminded of the first film and the thing that suprised me the most about it. Not the canceled wedding. Not Steve’s cheating. But rather the fact that the same studded belt popped up on at least 4 of Carrie’s outfits repeatedly! I loved the dose of reality-even Carrie would wear a favorite item more than once a month! :) And even though the film was over a year ago, the studded belt is EVERYWHERE for fall (well, studded everything is everywhere for fall!) It’s on my MUST list for fall shopping- especially when paired with a very feminine dress or wrapped over a sweater!

My favorite outfit in the whole SATC film is one that I cannot find a good picture of other than the screenshot below! Carrie’s fitted jacket, studded belt, skirt and killer heels she wears to the Vogue offices! I gasped when I saw it it was such perfection!

This beauty shot by Garance Dore does the feminine/tough juxtaposition exactly right.

Cupcakes & Cashmere loves her studded belt too and shows us ways to wear it a variety of ways.

This is the actual belt, made by Patricia Field. At $120 it’s not terrible if you can wear it in as many ways as Carrie did!

This one from Nordstrom’s is almost identical and $78.

And this one as well for even less at $16.90! There’s no excuse not to try the trend at that price!

Another take on the trend from Lulu’s for $13 or try it skinny for under $5 from Forever 21!


  1. Love the studs with the floral prints! And yes, those heels at Vogue were indeed breathtaking. Wish there was a better picture!! I am sure they were Manolo's.

  2. i wish i had bought one of those belts when the movie came out – i'm so behind! at least i know there's still time to get one…that the trend/style is still very much alive!

  3. Where oh where is the link to the stud that you have pictured and priced at $16.90? The link goes to the F21 skinny belt. Bum!

  4. Typically, I don't like this style, but upon seeing Carrie work it in such a fantastic way, I love them!

    Great examples for inspiration, I might add — if I come across one, I might have to try it out as well.

    Have a wonderful weekend :)

  5. i remember reading about the belt when the movie came out. apparently she wanted to wear it with everything, but Patricia told her that she couldn't!

  6. I Love these studded belts! I just ordered a skinny stud belt that wraps around and also a studded Rebecca Minkoff bag…cannot wait to rock them!

  7. Patricia Field designed a replica of the belt worn in the SATC movie – the actual belt worn in the movie by SJP is designed by Streets Ahead at $250. I scoured blogs to find that belt after the movie and waited 2 months to get it! I wear it with everything and worth the splurge!

  8. If I could ever figure out how to look even 1/100 this edgy I'd be thrilled. Good thing you keep those of us less-informed fashionistas in the loop!
