#Napriek tomu, že nové diely Sexu v meste nevznikajú už viac ako dekádu, americký seriál má stále množstvo priaznivcov. Tí dokážu svoju lásku k tomuto programu ukazovať rôznymi spôsobmi.
Jedným z nich je napríklad fotiť sa v rovnakých outfitoch, v akých vystupovala herečka Sarah Jessica Parker a vešať ich na Instagram. To sa rozhodol urobiť Newyorčan Dan Clay. A mužský rod je tu celkom správne, všetky módne kreácie hlavnej postavy – Carrie Bradshaw – má totiž na sebe muž.
Začalo to ako zábavka na Halloween, no úspech medzi priateľmi spôsobil to, že Dan si začal obliekať ďalšie a ďalšie outfity zo seriálu. Prišiel dokonca aj s vtipnou slovnou hračkou, ktorou Carrie Bradshaw premenoval na Carrie Dragshaw, pričom drag je po anglicky označenie pre transvestita. Celý nápad zašiel dokonca tak ďaleko, že samotná herečka Sarah Jessica Parker mu niekoľko postov komentovala a lajkovala.
Can you ever really move on from an ex? That night, as I took off my soaking wet $400 shoes, I couldn't stop thinking about the stains and damage of our failed love lives. I wondered, Were ex-boyfriends like the puddles of bad break-ups? Just when you think the storm is over, they splash on your new Manolos? After another messy night with Big, maybe I had to do a better job of keeping myself dry. After all, only children jump in puddles. Adults buy umbrellas. And maybe, just maybe, if you skip around enough puddles, there's a great big rainbow waiting on the other side. #CarrieDragshaw
In old westerns, the cowboy always saves the damsel in distress. But what if the cowboy is the reason she’s distressed in the first place? Who will save the damsel when her hero is her downfall? As I was face-to-face with yet another failure on the wild frontier of love, I couldn’t help but wonder: Maybe this was the story of the damsel who learned to save herself. After all, this is not the Old West—this is New York. And there’s plenty of giddy up left in my honky tonk. Maybe some girls aren’t meant to ride into the sunset. Maybe they're meant to grab their other damsels and dance under the moonlight. #CarrieDragshaw
They say there are two sides to every story. But how many sides are there to every girl? Most women I knew had a sexy side, a silly side, a sassy side, a smart, a serious, a supportive, a strong, and some days even a sad side. As I turned the corner after another night of trying hard to seem less complicated, I couldn’t help but wonder: How much of a woman’s life does she spend pretending? Pretending she's simpler, easier. Do we have to fake it to find true love? Show the lace but hide the leather, show the fur but hide the feathers. Or maybe, just maybe, if he can’t handle your Diesel, then he doesn’t deserve your De La Renta. If he can’t handle your Mimi, then he doesn’t deserve your Mariah. Because Marchesa, Moschino, Versace & Vivienne—they’re all part of this mixed up closet we call “Me.” And Big men have room for them all. So maybe that’s when you know the love is real—when you find someone who doesn’t make you push aside a side. After all, we need our feathers to fly. #CarrieDragshaw
Letter to 2016 from Carrie Dragshaw: As I shut the door on a year when the lows seemed to outnumber the loves, I started thinking about escape. In here, in my tower, I was safe. Out there, dragons roamed—bad taste, bad luck, bad men. Maybe Rapunzel had it right at the start. The world is scary. Just stay home and brush your hair. But as I looked ahead to the New Year, I couldn’t help but wonder: Tomorrow, when the ball drops, can our spirits lift? When it strikes twelve can we start strong? Count down and rise up. Because maybe the best way to fight for love is to spread it. And maybe strong love starts small—a smile on the subway, a hug hello, a text to a friend, a friendly ear. Because these little things add up to life. After all, every castle is just a bunch of bricks in a great outfit. So, Rapunzels, let down your hair and prepare to slay. Because if all us princesses stick together, the dragons don’t stand a chance. #CarrieDragshaw
Yesterday I did a guest post for the brilliant queens of @everyoutfitonsatc and I wanted to post it too because 1) it's my favorite scene in the show 🐎, 2) it's my favorite Carrie caption I've written so far, 3) I made that fu*king bag, and 4) most importantly people have been so nice I wanted to say thank you! You are making this little queen smile huge ❤CD❤ In New York, if you want to know how the other half lives, you head to the Plaza—the hotel where Chanel got tea, Gatsby got mad, Sinatra got applause…and Big got away. As he drove off with his perfectly simple fiancé, I started thinking about My Other Half. What happens to the girls who never find theirs? Was my heart a half-empty hotel, with a “Big Vacancy” sign on the revolving door? I couldn’t help but wonder: Did some women need to tone down to settle down? Change their shape to find a match, change their soul to find a mate? Or could it be that life isn’t about searching for someone who makes you complete—it’s about realizing you already are. And maybe, just maybe, we’re born with the love we’re meant to find. And if the world says tone it down—turn it up. Because your true other half knows you’re already whole. #CarrieDragshaw
It can be hard out there for a single girl, but there are a few words that provide instant comfort: “Vogue September Issue,” “2-for-1 Cosmopolitans,” “Manolo Blahnik Sample Sale,” and “Perfect First Date Follow-Up.” PFDFU. It's flirty and funny. Easy, breezy, and cool. He's clearly into it and you're like a pair of purple control top pantyhose: fun and holding it all together. It takes you right back to that perfect first date, when the conversation flowed effortlessly, the spark lit instantly, and the first kiss felt like fate. As you flirt on the phone, you float on a cloud that seems to sparkle from the inside, and for a moment you forget your baggage, you forget your past, you forget how many times you’ve felt this feeling before but it failed to last…and you smile. I couldn't help but wonder: Maybe love is like a mobile phone. When you have a good connection, you’ve just got to keep talking and hope for the best. #CarrieDragshaw
"Maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed. Maybe they just need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them." I have wanted to be Carrie Bradshaw for Halloween ever since college, when I had HBO in my frat room and girls would come over and watch Sex and the City on Sundays and I would pretend that I hated it because I didn't want to give myself away. Well, the secret's out, and this is the happiest day of my life. @sarahjessicaparker sending you more love than you could even imagine ❤️ #carriedragshaw
As I lifted up Le Big Mac, I couldn’t help but wonder: In an era of fast food, cell phones, and speed dates, does romance stand a chance? When the morning story is yesterday’s news by the afternoon, can we really expect love to last? Maybe modern relationships were destined to be like a fast food burger: easy and unhealthy. Love in the Time of Domino’s: Quick, convenient, and leaves you feeling cheap. But I still held out hope that, even in a fast food nation, we could be a fancy French restaurant. In a world of Whoppers, he could be my filet. And maybe, just maybe, in an era of urgent e-mails, we could be a long love letter—best read with a side of fries. #CarrieDragshaw
If you need me I'll be dead. A few questions: Do I ever take this tutu off? Is this my career now? Is my past like an anchor holding me back and I need to let go of who I was to become who I will be? @sarahjessicaparker you could teach a Learning Annex seminar on how to bring kindness and love to the world ❤️
