I love binging television shows. Some shows you really need to as the plotting is complicated. Case in point the television show called Cloak & Dagger. I truly cannot imagine watching that on a weekly schedule. But catching three episodes or so in a sitting, I can follow the supernatural, mystic elements of the storyline. No way, the “previously” scenes help you stay grounded in the show. There are individuals out there who still like appointment television. Meaning they catch the episodes live. But it really doesn’t do it for me anymore.
With that said, I decided to binge watch an old television show. Thankfully Netflix exists for such cravings. I went on a Sex and the City bingewatch. I liked the show when it first came out. Or so I thought. I knew much about it including the characters and eateries. However, back then, I had never watched the show with any frequency or consistency. Then one weekend this past month I couldn’t sleep and decided to start watching the show. And, then I didn’t stop until I watched the series finale.
I was surprised by some of the episodes. I was surprised by some silly plotlines such as Carrie’s introduction to email. Wow. How long ago was the show? I guess I surprised myself in not realizing how far back this show went. It truly must have seemed a bit revolutionary at that point in time. And, while I knew that fashion was a huge part of the show’s appeal I didn’t get how outrageous the outfits were. I sat there this past weekend wondering about Carrie’s outfits and how could they be considered everyday attire for New York women?
I decided to take myself up on a challenge: try dressing like Carrie. I already always wear dresses and cool shoes everyday. Just today someone commented on how fashionable I am and how I look like I put thought into my outfits. But, I don’t dress like I’m going to a Met gala.
What I decided to do was to order a tutu from Amazon.
I thought it would be fun to wear and would give me a good sense of how far one can push fashion. The tutu arrived and I immediately placed it in my closet. I have yet to wear it. But when I do, I’ll wear one of those cameras to get people’s reactions. Let’s see how it goes.
