Meeting an Idol: Sex and the City’s Candace Bushnell

There are some people in this world who we idolize and respect so much, that we never – in a million years – ever expect to meet. For me, Candace Bushnell was one of those peopleā€¦ until I got to meet her today!

Candace Bushnell is the critically acclaimed, international best-selling author of Sex and the City, The Carrie Diaries, One Fifth Avenue, Lipstick Jungle, Trading Up, and Four Blondes. She was in town for a book signing of her newest book, Summer and the City. This coming-of-age story of one her most famous creations – Carrie Bradshaw – is the second book in the Carrie Diaries sequence, and it’s the prequel to Sex and the City.

I’m a lifestyle writer for women with a penchant for pretty shoes, so Candace (aka the real life Carrie Bradshaw!) is truly an inspiration. She’s been such a huge inspiration to be a writer, and start Cincy Chic (when I realized how many “Sex and the City”-type women there were in Cincinnati). So, it was absolutely amazing to meet her, get to know her on a personal level (she’s very personable and down-to-earth btw), and chat about her newest adventure, “Summer in the City.” It sounds like a great read and I can’t wait to drink in every word like I have with all her other books!
