I really recommend you see Sex and the City - the movie twice. Why? Cuz the first time you're just too excited to see how the story will play out, and there's so much fashion going on it's like you're tripping on a triple dose of tequila as the colorful wardrobe, gowns, fur, shoes, and purses fly around the screen before your eyes.
This Sat., we devoted our afternoon to some more SATC therapy, kicking it off with a small brunch like Carrie & Co. and heading to the theater to laugh and feel happy all over again. Amazingly, the count of ten women who showed up for the second round was even more than the first viewing on the day of release, and the level of excitement was quite the same (or even more as there were some first timers.) At dinner, one person scored 98% on the SATC trivia quiz and won the prize I got from my recent NYC trip. Coincidentally the store where I got the prize (SCOOP) appears in the movie in the background of the DVF store. Nice job!
Now more about the movie & fashion... I saw Sarah J talking about how a vintage belt was used repeatedly on many of her garments throughout the movie, which was fun to observe during the second viewing (pictured here w/her green dress.) I also had room to take in the various purses this time, from Carrie's sportier Chanel to Charlotte's lovely silk Prada clutch, which I've had my eye on for some time. Speaking of Prada, did you get a chance to check out their "Fairy Bag" this season (pictured here)? A special collaboration with James Jean and Prada, this is totally sold out thanks to so many celebs snatching up the limited edition.
But if you're not ready to splurge $2500 on a Fairy Bag, then you might try what Carrie's assistant Louise (played by Jen Hudson) did. Rent your euro-bags online at: http://www.bagborroworsteal.com/ They're having a one week free rental special to celebrate SATC; nice deal! The "Love" key chain Louise carries that's "key" to the storyline is custom made for the movie in 18 ct. yellow gold by H. Stern on Fifth Ave., a $6000 piece! There are a few people cashing in on knock-offs already, but hey, you can't blame them, it sure is cute!
