Editorial. Sex in My City…A Review and the Clothes!

June 2, 2008 • Fashion


Here we go…the most over-exposed movie of our time….and it’s finally out! Sex and the City. Even though I allowed the entire plot to be ruined for me, I just had to be there opening day to see my long lost friends. That’s as in Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte. No big surprise, the movie made $55.7 million in the U.S. this weekend.


Here was the line at my theater at 2pm Friday. Notice…mostly chicks!

I am not going to ruin it for the 25 women who have not seen it yet, however, here is my take…

I have to admit I was riveted, mostly by the clothes, not the plot. However, as my friend put it, "I still didn’t want it to end." I remember when the series was airing always wanting more. A half hour never seemed enough. Well, 2 hours and 15 minutes is more than enough for one sitting. Carrie’s narration and how it played into her articles set the direction for each episode of the series. It wasn’t really there in the movie. There also wasn’t much sex, but a lot on love and designer clothes. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I got to test my knowledge of designer clothes and was pretty dead on about most! Was the movie watered down? Yes. Did it feel like one old episode drawn out? Yes. Am I anxious for a sequel? You betcha! I don’t care. I don’t want to wait another four years to find out what’s happened to my girls!

What they were wearing:

This is just partial. If you are dying to know about more outfits….leave a comment about the one in question and I will try to figure it out for you!

    You have a lovely blog. Would you like to link swap?

  2. Kathy C. says:

    Would you be able to find out any information about the ivory rosette jacket that Carrie wears near the end when she goes back to the penthouse to get her shoes and sees Big?
    I love that jacket!

  3. Lauren - SCS says:

    Hi Kathy C.,
    I am fairly certain it’s Nina Ricci. The dress is.
    Hope that helps.

  4. Margarita says:

    Kathy C – if you take a glimpse into the SATC The Movie BOOK they tell you that the rosette jacket is actually TWO jackets they put together.
    If you look closely it’s actually a motorcycle jacket (you see th eleather on the collar and the zipper part), and the rosettes are part of something else and I believe they’re both vintage but I don’t have the book in front of me!!
    Go to the book store and get the book! It tells you so many amazing things about all their clothes!

  5. Lily says:

    I was wondering if you know where the blue dress with cool sleeves that Carrie wears to the baby shower is from?
    Love the blog by the way, look forward to hearing from you, xo.

    thanks for you help xx

  7. Lauren - SCS says:

    Hi Lily,
    That aqua dress Carrie wears to the baby shower is by Emma Domb. It does not come with the necklaces. Those are vintage.

  8. Lauren - SCS says:

    Hi K,
    So glad you are a huge fan of our blog! Yeah!
    Anyway, on to more important matters…the maxi tie-dye dress Carrie wears is Alexander McQueen.

  9. k. says:
