I love the ladies from SATC. I have been watching the show since its inception: it was a great excuse to buy the much coveted HBO. Anyway, I’ve followed the ladies through all of their trials and tribulations, cried, yelled at and talked to them. When the show ended I felt like my friends had left me. I was sad and lost. By that time I had lost all hope in TV. When SATC came back in reruns on TBS I was thrilled.

To be sure, I compared myself to “the girls” and often shared similar life experiences. This is, I’m sure, part of the attraction of the show. When the first movie was released I was thrilled to be reunited with my girlfriends. All the hype surrounding the first movie, of course, helped arouse my interest. The second movie, not so much.

Life changes so many things and while that idea is reflected in the movie, it is also reflected in my own life, so I guess life really does imitate art. I, like Samantha, experience hot flashes and mood swings, but I’m also dealing with other issues. The memory loss and other issues pull me away from my BFFs: I don’t care as much about them because I can’t remember much about the series.

Another thing that kept me from enjoying the movie was the location. To be sure, Morocco/Abu Dhabi is a beautiful and exotic location, but to me, it wasn’t what I wanted to see. As always, New York City has been part of the appeal of the Fab Four. I loved seeing them navigate the city on their various adventures. How much more appealing would it have been watching them do their dailies as mothers and wives in The City. Their homes are lovely, but I want to see The City (of Sex and the City), NOT Abu Dhabi. Sex and the City without The City isn’t the same. Also, the stars’ personalities have become so big that they have taken over the movie and not allowed room for my beloved city. I missed the city as the fifth character.

If there is a SATC 3 I will probably watch it, but certainly not with the same gusto as I enjoyed the series or even the first movie.

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
