This Is the *One* Outfit Sarah Jessica Parker Regrets Wearing
Sure, Sarah Jessica Parker just added the perfect LBD to her SJP fashion line, but back in the day, she wore a LOT of crazy: particularly for her role as Carrie Bradshaw on the (possibly reprised?) Sex and the City. And yet, if there’s one outfit this fashion daredevil regrets over the years, it’s a… black dress? Let us explain.
When Sarah was tying the knot with hubby Matthew Broderick back in 1997, she decided to take a MAJOR fashion risk: one that makes going down the long-sleeved or dip-dyed route seem like the least daring thing a bride could do. She wore (gasp!) a black bridal gown.
So why isn’t the 51-year-old actress proud of her bold statement? Weeeeeeell, while chatting with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, she revealed that it wasn’t exactly planned that way.
After Andy posed a fan question about the star’s “badass” dress choice, Sarah was quick to jump in and humbly reveal the truth behind her unconventional frock: “Oh, I wish it was because I was badass! I just was too embarrassed to spend any time looking for a wedding dress. (Time out — WHAT? She literally could have had any designer in the world send her a dress, she didn’t even need to look! We so feel like Anthony during that part in SATC 2 where she shows him the suit dress RN.) “There was a store that I liked that I knew, and I just went and got whatever they had hanging.”

While Andy voiced his approval of the daring decision, declaring, “I love it!”, SJP left no doubt about her feelings toward it when she concluded: “No, I would do it differently.”
Well, one thing’s for sure: At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter WHAT she wore to her nuptials, because she and hubby Matthew have had one of the best relationships in Hollywood, and really, that’s all that matters!

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
