While the older Carrie may have lost her way—spending years chasing after the emotionally unavailable Mr. Big— 17-year-old Carrie Bradshaw of The Carrie Diaries is a self-proclaimed feminist. At a young age, she once told her crush, “I believe marriage is a legalized form of prostitution.” To get this remarkable young writer’s look, pair a tutu with a vibrant jacket, and don’t be afraid of patterns!
