Carried Away

So it seems we have a date with a movie...

I've already wrote about my feelings regarding Carrie's adventures in 35mm and this post will not be a new version of that old one, expecially because at today I still feel the same.
This will be a sad story instead...

In six seasons of Sex & The City, I fell in love with almost every Carrie's outfits. Not too original, I know.










One of my all time favorite is the pink de la Renta dress she wears during last season, when Petrovsky takes her to MacDonald's.



Is not the most outrageous, creative, unexpected Carrie's look, but I always thought it was just perfect, expecially with that jacket and I still dream about it.

A couple of weeks ago, on Ebay, I found a gorgeous vintage alternative.



I immediately wanted that dress and like Carrie in that episode, I swooned in front of it.
In a moment I also had a nice jacket to pair it with


Perfect. All perfect. Too perfect, indeed...
I've been outbidded in the last minute and I've lost forever my perfect dress.

So my dream dies here: somewhere in the world, right now, another girl is loving her new pink dress. I'll never go all dressed up to (the renewed!) MacDonald's and I think I will never be lucky enough to find again something like that (please help me!!!).

I told you this was a sad story!

Oh, how I feel for you. In case I should stumble across a dress like this i will definately let you know. I promise to.

That vintage dress is beautiful, as is the jacket you've found to pair it with, it would've looked great! :(

Guerreira ha detto...

do you use this? reduces the chance of being outbid at the last minute (the girl that stole your pink dress was probably using one of these sites)...

ooo i love the idea of a frilly pink dress paired with a tough blazer!

Mikkle ha detto...

my fav dress has to be the one she wears in the last episode that looks like a ballet dress. feels like she stepped out of a degas painting! i've been on the look out for something like it, and no luck so far. hope you find a dress like the pink one soon!

Ragamala ha detto...

I am so jealous of that dress!

August ha detto...

So sorry you lost your dream dress! Your are right, it looked very similar to Carrie's. I hope that you find another!

Ohyes, I always dream about moments in sex&thecity & wish it'll happen to me! I am a bigger fan of Samantha though :)

Jello on Springs ha detto...

I shall be on the lookout for similar dresses so your story can have a happy ending! =]
Is it bad that I've never watched a single sex and the city episode? It's really funny because my ex used to watch sex and the city, i thought it was so weird.

I LOVE the Paris Polka Dot, it is one of my all time favorites of Carrie's... so perfectly Parisian

discothequechic ha detto...

and it is gutting losing a special piece, but there will always be another one out there! an even better one, i promise!

quel mannaggia di film qui è uscito mercoledì, io non ho avuto i soldi per andare la sera della preview, ma tutti quelli che sono andati hanno detto che è talmente brutto che mi sono spaventata...cheffaccio? ci vado o no? lo vediamo insieme quando torno in italia, da qualche parte a metà strada?ihihihih!
non ti preoccupare per il vestito, te ne capiterà un altro sotto il naso vedrai, uno più bello ancora...tipo quello che lei indossa nella prima parte dell'ultimo episodio, quello di versace con la gonna millestrati che occupa tutto il divanetto della stanza d'albergo!

AlicePleasance ha detto...

Thanks to everyone for the kind words :-)

@ dotti: you're a star!

@ guerreira: I'm really old school for bidding...! But I know, I should convince myself and start using a software like that one. Thanks for the tip ;-)

@ mikkle: you mean the multilayers Versace dress. That one is legend!!!

@ jello on springs: thanks! I knew some boys who watched Sex too, even if not all the episodes. But we studied cinema and we all were addicted to tv series, so probably it's a little bit different!

@ discotequechic: I love your "I promise" :-)

@ la principessa emicrania: credo dipenda dalle aspettative che uno si crea prima di andare a vederlo. Personalmente il mio mood di partenza è sul malinconico andante, credo che il film mi metterà un bel po' di tristezza...sai, del tipo "il tempo passa - le cose cambiano - ti ricordi come eravamo?"
Ho pensato per un attimo di non andare a vederlo, ma so che non posso farlo. Domani sarà il gran giorno. Will see...

Times of Glory ha detto...

Darling, the pink dress you found is FABULOUSSSSSS! Totally! Actually, I think yours will be more flexible and easy to wear!

I can picture you wearing that dress on a gorgeous date xx

Gloria ha detto...

Danz ha detto...

Wow, what great finds! It's a pity you didn't get the dress, I hate when that happens!!

MHBass ha detto...

Kasix ha detto...
