Fans of Sex and the City have likely heard about the “Carrie dress.” The original was a form-fitting LBD that the character (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) wore in season two, episode 15. And now, the old garment has some worthy competition, thanks to And Just Like That.

As Vogue points out, Parker recently rocked a newer version of the Carrie dress in episode seven of And Just Like That. The photo shows the actress strolling down the street in a light blue midi dress, which is surprisingly affordable.

Parker is wearing the Diana dress by Norma Kamali, which retails for $215. (That’s nothing compared to Carrie’s other ensembles.) The piece features a one-shoulder neckline, along with ruched details across the midsection. Parker is donning complementary accessories, including a white blazer, a clutch and—of course—stilettos.

Based on the buyer feedback, it seems to be worth the splurge. One person wrote, “I ordered this dress for a wedding this past weekend, and I am so happy I did! It is extremely comfortable while also hugging your body in all the right places.” Another added, “Absolutely stunning. Fits like a glove. True to size.”

The frock is fairly similar to the original Carrie dress, with a few necessary adjustments. For example, the hemline is much longer than the black version, which symbolizes Carrie’s evolving style as she ages.

One thing’s for sure: Carrie’s fashion never disappoints.
