First Look: The Carrie Diaries

I used to watch a lot of Sex & the City re-runs, so when I found out that they were filming a pilot for The Carrie Diaries (based on the novels), I was intrigued. I haven't read the books (surprise, surprise--I love me some teen chick-lit YA), but they're on my to-read list.

So...teen Carrie? In the 1980's? ...what?

I'm actually pleasantly surprised by the photo. I was scared the outfits might come off too costume-y, but it works. And hey, it is supposed to be Carrie, so typical fashion rules don't really apply to her anyway.

The show sounds like it's going to be a mash-up of Sex & the City and Gossip Girl, but set in the 80's, so I'm probably going to watch based on that alone. You know I love my fluffy teen soaps (especially when they're stylish). And I'm not going to lie--I do want to see more of the show's fashion.

Will you be watching The Carrie Diaries?
