First, the skirt is a pretty obvious nod to Carrie's penchant for tulle ballerina style skirts. Although I love this skirt, my husband told me he didn't much care for it, to which I retorted "It's fabulous and you know it!" much like what Carrie told Burger after he insulted her hat. I say this a lot to my husband about my clothes or accessories. Just like many of the men on the show, my husband doesn't seem to "get" certain things about women's fashion.
Secondly, I brought up Chinese food because we ate at one of our favorite Chinese restaurants the day I wore this. Yes, it's a little dressy for such casual dining, but I am never one to shy away from being overdressed and "fabulous" for the occasion. For those of you who are also fans of Sex in the City, Chinese food seems to somehow work its way into the plot of many episodes, be it Carrie having a tantrum over Big taking her to a dimly lit Chinese restaurant because she thinks he is embarrassed to be seen with her in public or the episode where Miranda becomes self conscious when the woman on the phone laughs at her for ordering the same menu items for takeout every night.
Well, as you can see, I'm definitely a Sex in the City aficionado and because my husband is too, we also have a lot of inside jokes about the series. All joking aside, however, the one of the thing that amazes me is that the wardrobe for that show still looks impeccably fresh and modern, even though it premiered nearly twenty years ago. (Fresher, perhaps than greasy Chinese food, but equally satisfying!)
