This and That From Here and There


David Hamilton Photography via Scout Holiday.



Project Runway is casting for season 6. Apply or just snoop the application here.



If it wasn't already painfully obvious, not even Carrie or Samantha's characters could ever afford to live like either Carrie or Samantha but E! really breaks it down for us:

  • Carrie and Big's luxury Fifth Avenue apartment: $25 million
  • Louise's Louis Vuitton Monogram Motard Firebird bag (a gift from Carrie): $5,400
  • Carrie's 18-karat gold H.Stern Love keychain (a gift from Louise): $6,800
  • Renting a room for five hours at the New York Public Library with a 375-person capacity: $30,000
  • Carrie's "vintage" white silk crepe suit from Christian Dior 2008 Cruise Collection: jacket, $3,785; skirt, $2,215
  • Carrie's made-to-order Vivienne Westwood wedding gown: $22,760
The rest of the article here.




Paul & Joe's diffusion line Paul & Joe Sister Rendez-Vous Collection is already online at Urban Outfitters with a really awesome jumpsuit to take particular notice of.

Yeah, I love Sex and the City so much, and it is so much like real life, except for the money factor. If only a humble writer could make that much money!
Paul & Joe Sister clothing is great. And that first photo by David Hamilton? Amazing.

I adored the SATC movie and it's amazing how much all that stuff costs-totally awesome!!

Wendy said...

Oh wow, that takes bags of cash.

emma said...

haha that sex and the city break down is so funny

The Clothes Horse said...

I don't know whether to be happy or depressed how blatantly obvious it is that "Carrie" can't live like "Carrie..."

Pratishtha Durga said...

This just goes to show that SATC, like any other work of fiction is just that, a work of fiction. Rules of real life bend a little here. Well, more than a little. The richer the overall look and feel, the easier it is to fall for a bunch of lies...

The first picture is so beautiful

coco said...

I don't think i matters that Carrie couldn't afford all that stuff. It's a film, it's fantasy!

I cannot WAIT for Project Runway 5 to start ...glee.

CoutureCarrie said...

OMG those SATC numbers are shocking . . . I can't believe the Public Library charges people; seems like it should be a first-come, first-served kinda thing, and FREE!

Paris Tarts said...

I love the first picture...it's moody..strangly reminds me of the disney movie "The Rescuers". And I love the new U&O clothing line.
