Now that watching Sex and the City reruns on TBS has become a regular habit of mine, I’ve come to notice something that somehow escaped me the first time around. Maybe it was the glamour and allure of the New York City backdrop, but, besides the fact that Carrie is a complete idiot, I’ve realized just how truly ugly her outfits were. And yet, it has made a celebrity out stylist Patricia “feeling-herself-too-much” Field who quite frankly, at her age needs a little Stacy and Clinton in her life. Having been responsible for Carrie’s signature haphazard style has for whatever reason has spurred Patricia-mania, and I have yet to buy the hype. But I digress.
Some may say Carrie’s wardrobe was eclectic, unique, even groundbreaking. And yes, there were moments when I literally salivated over a well put together, chic ensemble. But nine times out of ten, the clothes were nonsensical and excessive, if not schizophrenic. I’ll admit it’s gotten better over the years, and with movie number two on the way I can only hope Carrie’s outfits aren’t as skittish as her relationship with Big.
