After spending the last few days recovering from Christmas and all that goes with it…eating way too much, drinking way too much, shopping the sales and opening and putting together boxes and boxes of toys, I thought I would take the opportunity to spend the day taking in some DVD’s (since it is just too hot to do anything else!!) Its been a while since I watched any of my Sex and the City episodes, sure I have seen two movies since the final episode but what I was really craving was some “old school” Carrie Bradshaw. As I was watching I was reminded of all the reasons I loved Sex and the City, sure in part it was for the fact that it was set in New York, and sure it was the story of 4 single girls living it up and looking for love, and yes we all wanted to see how the relationship with Mr Big would unfold but ulitmately I tuned in every week to see what glamour Patricia Field had injected into the wardrobe of Carrie Bradshaw, and just as I suspected, even with time gone by I wasn’t disappointed. While time has passed and fashion has certainly changed since those first few years of Sex and the City I still found myself wishing I had Carries wardrobe…. or at the very least, parts of it.
As the last DVD played out I couldn’t help but wonder…Will girls 10 years from now see the glamour of Carries wardrobe like all the fashionistas of the late 1990’s had, or will it just be some show with crazy outifits?
