Carrie Bradshaw Lied blog incorporates style on a budget
Kathleen Williams is the cutie behind Carrie Bradshaw Lied. The title of her blog lured us in right away, and once we read her posts, saw her outfits, and chatted with her, we were head over heels. Meet Kathleen …
Where I’m based: Orange County, Calif.
How long I’ve been blogging: Three Years
Blog/business basics: Carrie Bradshaw Lied is a blog about overall style on a twenty-something budget. I share travel adventures, recipes, outfits and closet style, home décor, etc. Everyone should be able to incorporate style into their everyday life, even if you’re on a budget!
Tell us the background of your blog name: What girly-girl isn’t a huge fan of Carrie Bradshaw and Sex and the City? As a delusional college fashionista, I envisioned life in my twenties to be effortless, fabulous and full of lunching with girlfriends and shopping for designer duds. While twenty-something life can certainly be fabulous, it definitely requires more work and sadly less daytime shopping. I wanted to start a blog about creating a fabulous life on a real girl’s budget, and Carrie Bradshaw Lied was born!
For the record, I will always adore Carrie and all things Sex and the City.
What do you enjoy most about blogging? My minor was in Journalism, so I love the opportunity to write and connect with other stylish girls across the country. I’ve met so many wonderful people through the blog community!
Guilty pleasure: Any type of cheese in any form, wine and eBay shopping.
Last thing I bought: A “Céline Me Alone” t shirt!
Dream job: To work in fashion marketing and PR.
How is life as a newlywed? You are so sweet to ask. It’s fabulous. I love living with Christian and sharing my life with my best friend. I know everyone says that, but now I get it, because it’s so true!
What summer accessory do you recommend? A colorful clutch. A bright and cheery clutch can turn any outfit into a fun summer ensemble. I have a few that I am rotating and I think it’s the perfect summer accessory!
What’s one pair of shoes every woman should own? A great pair of nude strappy heels and nude pumps — OK, that’s two pairs of shoes. I think nude heels elongate the legs so beautifully and strappy heels are a summer staple. The pumps are a fall/winter staple!
Big or Aidan? Without blinking, Aiden. He always treated Carrie with love and respect and put her needs before his own. Plus, who is cuter than Aiden?
