Carrie Bradshaw…

Standard

 All us girls secretly wish we were one of the girls from Sex in the City. Do you really blame us with all those gorgeous shoes, clothing, glamorous life and not forgetting the drop dead gorgeous hunks all set in New York .I recall secretly watching the show as a teenager and loving every minute of it. I loved Carrie’s collection of shoes that would defo feed a small African country and not forgetting her romance with Mr Big. I found these awesome quotes online and decided to share them …

Satc-sex-and-the-city-1282791-1024-768

1.’I’ve spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!’

2. ‘You and I are so over we need a new word for it.’

3. ‘The fact is, sometimes it’s really hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes. That’s why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun’

4. ‘And then I realised something, twenty-something girls are just fabulous, until you see one with the man who broke your heart.’

5. ‘I like my money where I can see it – hanging in my closet.’

6. ‘I’m thinking balls are to men, what purses are to women. It’s just a little bag but we’d feel naked in public without it.’

7. ‘You and I are like that red wall. It’s a good idea in theory, but somehow it doesn’t quite work.’

8. ‘Oh, it’s never different! It’s six years of never being different! This is it! I am done! Don’t call me ever again! Forget you know my number! In fact, forget you know my name! And you can drive up this street all you want – because I don’t live here any more!’

9. ‘Oh my God! Do you know what these are? Manolo Blahnik Mary Janes! I thought these were an urban shoe myth!’

10. ‘Somewhere out there is another little freak who will love us and understand us and kiss our three heads and make it all better’

11. ‘I will never be the woman with the perfect hair, who can wear white and not spill on it.’

12. ‘When I first moved to New York and I was totally broke, sometimes I would buy Vogue instead of dinner. I felt it fed me more.’

13. ‘I couldn’t understand a word she was saying, but I felt I had in my possession all the Italian I’d ever need to know: Dolce, Dolce, Dolce.’

14. ‘I will not be the first one to speak. And if he never calls me again, I’ll always think of him fondly, as an asshole.’

15. ‘Beauty is fleeting, but a rent-controlled apartment overlooking the park is forever.’

New York Times Square

16. ‘I’m looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love.’

17. ‘I used to think those people who sat alone at Starbucks writing on their laptops were pretentious posers. Now I know: They are people who have recently moved in with someone.’

18. ‘Being single used to mean that nobody wanted you. Now it means you’re pretty sexy and you’re taking your time deciding how you want your life to be and who you want to spend it with.’

19. ‘They say nothing lasts forever; dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style.’

20. ‘Life gives you lots of chances to screw up which means you have just as many chances to get it right.’

21. ‘There comes a point in every relationship when romance gives way to reality.’

22. ‘After all, seasons change, so do cities; people come into your life and people go. But it’s comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you’re very lucky, a plane ride away.ear. I think you’re done.’

23. ‘Women come to New York for the two L’s: Labels and Love.’

These are just some of my Carrie wisdom which I love 🙂 Yes! Yes! I wish I was Carrie in Sex in the City and yes, I am still holding on waiting for Mr Big to make up his mind and build me a walk in shoe closet 😉

So who are these DESIGNERS , you ask ???
HUNADI is a signature clothing brand for the tasteful and discerning individual. Attention to detail and immaculate finishes are no less than a given flair adding a sense of distinguished elegance.All Hunadi garments are proudly produced in South Africa by a team of highly skilled and passionate tailors. Our flagship store is situated on 25 Newport Road in Parkwood, a serene but central location in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg South Africa. The Spring/Summer collection is called Cloth Girl and is inspired by a setting in Ghana – West Africa, where we also sourced fabric for this collection. A key element of the Hunadi brand is the celebration of the African woman. Hunadi celebrates her strength, resilience and elegance. The lines in this collection are very feminine and timeless. Easy to wear and yet very distinctive. We accentuate the woman’s waist line throughout the collection –an element true to Hunadi in celebrating the woman as she is and not how the world expects her to be. The collection will be launched at the New York Fashion week this September. Hereafter we will have a private viewing and launch with the hunadi customers and the media.

MORPHE means “to transform outwardly.” Morphé has a strong style signature feel and offers pieces that the wearer can easily incorporate with her existing wardrobe. Layering and interaction between the wearer and the garment is encouraged by pieces often being able to be worn in more than one way. This outward transformation allows the wearer to embrace their own individual tastes and personalities in a distinct ready-to-wear label. My clothing is a lot like dress-up for grown-ups, since it tends to have an edge of playfulness to it. I think that my clothing would attract wearers that feel excited about wearing both colour and texture, clothing that celebrates being alive. My new SS13/14 range showed at MBFWCT13 was very focused on offering the customer more pieces that are updates from previous key pieces such as the kimono dress that forms the DNA of what Morphe stands for : modern and comfortable ready to wear clothing.

This is defo an event all Fashionistas should not miss out.
