Carrie Bradshaw Fashion Failures

By Jillian Taub

Carrie Bradshaw was known for many things on the hit show Sex and the City. Her sex column, her unbelievable friends, her excessive shoe collection, her horrible taste in men, and of course, her love of fashion. Though she claims to live for fashion, she doesn’t seem to show it. When looking at her outfit choices, I couldn’t help but wonder…what was she thinking?? Here are some of the worst:  New Year’s Eve is the time to dress up, but for Carrie it was the time to look like she was playing dress-up. Between the pajama pants, fur coat, sparkly hat, and pearl neckalce, I can't decide which is the most random. Let’s not forget the impractical heels.. Even thought she was just spending the night with Miranda she could at least look presentable. ...

Finals are no longer a distant thought in the back of your mind; they have arrived. Our last weekend to have a good time out is past us and we need to buckle down to make our last marks good ones. Inevitably, finals lead to procrastinating in one way or another. People procrastinate in all sorts of way, whether its by eating, socializing, or cleaning.

What are some ways you de-stress during finals? Andrew (A): All of my finals are tests, so I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but it definitely makes procrastinating easier. Patio parties have helped me de-stress so far, but I don't think I can get away with that this week. There is also something very relieving about launching things off the house balcony, but you definitely didn't hear that from me. READ MORE
