Meet Carrie Dragshaw, your new fashion icon and go-to person when it comes to seeking inspiration in the ways of love, life, and cute shoes. Dragshaw, a.k.a. strategy and innovation consultant Dan Clay, is recreating some of Carrie Bradshaw's most iconic Sex and the City moments on his Instagram, because this is what the internet is all about. Honestly, his account is more entertaining than Sex and the City 2 (you know that movie sucked, don't fight me on this).

According to Cosmopolitan, it has been Clay's dream since college to dress as Bradshaw, but he never got up the nerve to step into the SatC inspired drag until now because he "didn't want to give himself away." Now that Clay is an out and proud homosexual man, he feels much more comfortable donning Carrie's tutu and heels, calling the day he dressed as Bradshaw "the happiest day of my life."

PS- Clay bought that skirt directly from the Patricia Field website, so you know it's the real deal.

PPS- Those skirts range from $140-$180 bucks, so whatever a "creative and innovative consult" is must be a pretty good gig.

Among Carrie Dragshaw's 14,000 followers (and growing) is Carrie Bradshaw herself, Sarah Jessica Parker. She has even commented on one of Clay's pictures, saying "Oh my L_ord! Words cannot convey. A triumph. Xxx." I don't know why Parker put an underscore between the "L" and the "O" in Lord, but just because she plays a writer on TV doesn't mean that she actually is one in real life.

Clay, who lives only a few minutes away from Carrie's native West Village, often uses the neighborhood for the backdrop for his pictures. Not only are Clay's outfits and settings on point, but he also accompanies each image with a Carrie Bradshaw-esq blurb talking about, you know, whatever.

"In old westerns, the cowboy always saves the damsel in distress. But what if the cowboy is the reason she’s distressed in the first place? Who will save the damsel when her hero is her downfall? As I was face-to-face with yet another failure on the wild frontier of love, I couldn’t help but wonder: Maybe this was the story of the damsel who learned to save herself. After all, this is not the Old West—this is New York. And there’s plenty of giddy up left in my honky tonk. Maybe some girls aren’t meant to ride into the sunset. Maybe they're meant to grab their other damsels and dance under the moonlight. #CarrieDragshaw"
