Carrie Bradshaw is a fashion icon, but she’s an imaginary fashion icon. Carla Rockmore, however, is the real deal. Excuse us while we sit here and fangirl over this lovely woman who does fashion her own way – which is the only way, in our opinion. He’s a TikTok star who isn’t like other TikTok stars, and we love him for it. If you’re not following along as she rocks the world with her bold fashion, edgy personality, and charming sense of humor, you’re missing out. She’s everything and more, and you can thank us for bringing that to your attention later.
1. She has the best nickname
It seems the world has given him a nickname, and it’s a good nickname. Her name is the real Carrie Bradshaw. For those who’ve been living under a rock for 20 or 30 years, that would be the character Sarah Jessica Parker made famous on her hit show Sex and the City. She is the real version, though she denies that she and Carrie look alike.
2. She is bold
His style choice are often bold and eclectic. What we mean, however, is that she is a woman who is not afraid to be herself, to dress like herself and to do what she feels good in while others don’t always feel the same way. She’s bold and it works.
3. She’s from Texas
She may be a fashion icon, but did you know she’s not from New York? She doesn’t live in Paris either. She’s a fashion icon living in the heart of good old Dallas, Texas. You might not think there are too many fashion icons, but we think she proves that wrong.
4. She is in her 50s
Stop right away. She’s not in her fifties, yet she’s in her fifties. She is actually 54 years old, according to this article. She’s a woman who looks amazing, she’s adorable, and she kills it. We should all aspire to look this good at this age.
5. She likes to challenge herself
As a woman, it’s a good thing to feel the need to constantly question yourself when the world is right behind you. If you’re not challenged, if you don’t take the time to see what you can do and how you can do it, are you even doing it right? There’s so much going on that’s just too good to leave out, and she likes to make sure she challenges herself in everything she does so she can be a part of all that is good.
She has always been a designer. She started designing fashion when she was 20 years old. By the time she hit her 40s, however, she turned more to jewelry design, and that’s where she focuses her time now.
7. She needs inspiration
When planning a photo shoot or an outfit, she doesn’t think about it months in advance or plan it. She is straightforward. She needs to be inspired. However, his inspiration can come to him in the middle of anything. Seeing someone walking down the street, seeing a bracelet she forgot, or even seeing a color she likes. Once she sees that inspiration, the rest comes to her quickly.
8. She just knows what she likes
When people ask her what she likes, she can’t always tell you. However, it does not hide any information. She just likes what she likes in the moment. If it speaks to him, it speaks to him. If it’s not, it’s not. She doesn’t know until she knows.
9. She always goes vintage
When she sees something she likes in a fashion show or in magazines and falls in love with it, she doesn’t buy it. She might end up buying it, but she’ll always look for something vintage instead. Why? Because fashion is a circle. If there’s something she sees in a show she loves, she knows someone else has been there, done it, and probably made it better, more timeless, and with more of finesse a few decades ago. She’s not wrong.
10. She knows trends should be cheaper
She and I have a very similar vision when it comes to our trending items. Trendy items come and go quickly – and the price has to reflect that. Nothing trendy should cost a ton of money because it will be useless after a season or two. However, a good commodity is an investment every time.
