Wanna Marathon?

I'm not talking about the type of marathon where you sweat and strain, I'm talking about the type where you drink too much vodka and order take-out. I'm talking about a Sex and the City marathon. You in?

I'm feeling that old "bored with the wardrobe" syndrome sinking in and really need a wake-up call al la Patricia Fields. So to drum up a little inspiration, I decided to look up some moments of sheer poetry as worn by the SATC crew (don't judge me for the acronym, every body's doing it).

Did you know this was a vintage, floor length 70's jersey dress that Fields chopped up?

I love thigh-high socks anyways, and this may just be my Winter "Ladies who Lunch" uniform (and YES we do need to start that back up!).

Such sass (I could so see you rocking the black outfit).

This dress, this scene, this character: amazing. I think that Charlotte stole the show from the other two bridesmaids.

And while we're on the subject of the non-wedding, the whole photoshoot with Carrie and the wedding dresses MUST be revisited.

Last but so not least, mine (and everyone's) all time favorite.

See? I feel better already. Imagine how we'll feel after a season or two?

I love and will always love that last dress.

Is it a sin that I haven't seen the movie yet? I felt guilty gazing at the shots from the movie.

Yes M, it is a sin, and you need to get right!

Watching the movies opening weekend with every other female in the city was a magical experience - seriously. Women were dressed up, drinking in the theater, hugging, crying in the best possible way (now that I've written that I realize it sounds like some people's nightmares), it was this huge female bonding time.

I was so skeptical about the movie - just doing something every other woman loves. But it's loved for good reason - that show has somehow captured what too many women lack in their lives - independence, confidence, and some kick ass fabulous friends.

umber, what the fuck is being a neighbor good for except for a sex in the city marathon? can you sit still?! :)

I want those knee highs...or are they thigh highs?

mme. bookling said...

Probably on SJP they are knee-highs...
