#Instaloves <3

We all know what Instagram is.  At this moment, it is my favorite social media outlet. People love Instagram for various reasons – seeing pics of their loved ones, discovering new photographers/bloggers, travel,  posting party pics, the selfie,  hashtags, visual stimulation, etc. I love Instagram for all of the above and more.  Lately, I’ve been following so many Instragrammers and I thought I would share my new findings with my own audience.  I love taking photos and sharing my own point of view – feel free to follow me on Instagram @sadv.  We will see if this is a weekly thing I can share with you, but for now I wanted to share 3 of my new Instaloves…

Supermodel and wife of John Legend – Chrissy Teigen is a fun one to follow. She has such a vibrant and playful personality and you can see that through her photos.  This is a girl who likes to have fun and doesn’t take life so seriously. #adorable

The Real Carrie Bradshaw Apartment

 

The Real Carrie Bradshaw apartment

It’s been 10 years {2004} since Sex and the City aired it’s last episode of Season 6 and fashionistas and fans still talk about Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, & Samantha today. There were many fashion looks that evolved throughout the years and one in particular was Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment. We have seen the famous apartment in New York’s Greenwich Village {64 Perry Street} and maybe guilty of taking selfies on the steps. What we didn’t know was that the actual West Village apartment was much grander than what was shown to the Sex and the City audience. The brownstone apartment lists for $9.65 million. I wonder if Carrie’s Sex and the City column salary could actually afford the real 4000+ SF chic apartment. Here is a glimpse of the real Carrie Bradshaw apartment…

The brownstone includes herringbone wood floors with inlaid borders, six fireplaces with carved marble, and ornate crown molding throughout the space. This apartment exudes historic beauty with touches of gold sparkle seen in the anchored chandeliers and sconces. This is totally different from the apartment we see on the show and in the movie.

The Carrie Bradshaw apartment we know from the Sex and City tv series….
