We Review: SEX & THE CITY 2

Watching Sex and the City was like seeing old friends again…hearing Carrie’s voiceover narration; watching how Charlotte’s life as a mother had progressed; being able to see that Miranda and Steve had survived their marital indiscretions; and Samantha…well she was still being Samantha.

The girls go on an all expense paid holiday to Abu Dhabi and the middle-eastern getaway could not have come at a more opportune time. The women learn and analyze their relationships with their men and reaffirm the great bond that they have, letting us know that, sometimes… all you need is some “time with the girls”…

The four girls give us incite into the lives of The 21st Century Woman. What’s great about our foursome, is that they have constantly been fighting against traditional forms and ideas of how women should act and how they are perceived. First it was, the single woman having sex …like a man. Now, ‘What happens after you say I do.’

We find out from the movie, whether you’re a mother, lover, wife, or friend, is that relationships require work. It’s easier to accept others, than to change them. It’s wiser to understand them, than to get angry. And most of the time, it’s more fun to love ‘em, than to leave ‘em.

There might not have been too much sex, and very little city, but the fashions did not fail. Our style guru Carrie sported some amazing clothes in this movie that we absolutely loved.

We j’adored Carrie in Abu Dhabi, styling the Dior black tee, paired with a violet-grey frou frou skirt (see right). In our Demi-couture range you can find our pink frou frou skirt and pair it up with any of our low back tops, for a similar look.

Trains on skirts and dresses are a lost art. Carrie wore a black dinner dress with a flowing train to her dinner with Aiden (see left). Much like the frou frou skirt, which also had a train, we pick trains to be a real show stopper at any event or party in town.

To ease people back into skirts with trains, we offer a range of demi-couture skirts with removable trains, perfect for cocktail parties, balls or any evening event.

Safari, tribal, prints and breezy summer clothing sets the trends for this summer’s ‘look’. Carrie’s white dress that she wore on her camel ride with the girls was amongst one of our many favorite looks from the film.

Although we do not have clothes like this in our collection, we do have two summer dresses to offer this summer, which follow the trends. Our one shoulder Ikat dress, flaunts a tribal-looking design. Also recommended is our re-movable one strap dress, which comes in summer-crisp white. Both dresses are 100% cotton, ideal for summer wear.

Don’t forget, our Super Summer Sale lasts until the 30th of June. If you’re in the area, come by and say hello. With up to 75% off, Power Hours, Champagne Nights, how can you say no?

At the end of the day, the movie managed to keep us updated on the lives of Carrie, Miranda, Samantha, and Charlotte: their loves, lusts, and inner secrets of another lap of their life. If they came out with Sex and the City 3, guess what? We would still watch it. We are loyal to them, loyal to the fashions, and loyal to Sex and the City. We continue to be infatuated with the four ladies mainly because, in the wonderful words of Carrie Bradshaw,

"Women come to New York for the two L's: Labels and Love."

Fashion Film Rating: 3/5
