Would you wear… Carrie’s oversized corsage from Sex and the City?

Sex_and_the_city_corsage

We’ve already talked about how the Sex and the City movie inevitably spawned a resurgence of the corsage trend from a few years ago, but we had no idea the fashion world would take things so literally.  Johnny Loves Rosie are currently selling this oversized corsage for a not-exactly-cheap £50, with the suggestion that could could wear it "as a brooch or as a hair clip". Now, we know Sarah Jessica Parker managed to pull off the "oversized corsage brooch" on the Sex and the City movie, but we’re not sure even Carrie Bradshaw would consent to wear one on her head. Whaddya think?

    No. Definitely. NOT. I´d look like a clown.

    I didn’t think Carrie Bradshaw even pulled off the monsterous flower thing…if anyone else tries to wear a huge flower, the unoriginality of it all it just too much for me.

    I don’t like it and I wouldn’t wear it.
    Have to agree with gokarm’s comment.

    It wasn’t as big as Carrie’s, but I did wear a medium sized flower for a wedding…and I got a lot of compliments. Especially because the dress was plain, and I couldn’t find the right accessories to go with it. It was quite fun to wear!

    No. Not on her, and not on me. Just, no.

    I feel like you probably shouldn’t wear any accessory that’s larger than your head. Especially if it’s right next to your head.

    I don’t think even Carrie pulled it off. She isn’t the cute, perky young thing she used to be. Her age is showing, especially on either side of her nose and below her eyes. So those trendy, funky outfits now just make her look silly.

    I liked the one Carrie wore, and I’d wear that, but I’m not so keen on the other one

    I love Carrie’s look and would absolutely wear that frock if I could! Not so keen on the Johnny Loves Rosie corsgae though – way too poufy. I prefer the, albeit gold smothered, simplicity of La Bradshaw’s corsage.

    The flower on the left looks fake.

    I already have! Patricia Field came out with her one-off Destination Style New York, and reproduced this piece in black. I wore it to a friend’s wedding reception – and (I still feel guilty about this) stole the attention from the bride and groom!
