Sex and the city is a sitcom about four girlfriends: Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York, Miranda Hobbes and Samantha Jones who live in the fabulous Manhattan of New York. Even though they all have very different personalities, they have found in each other the best of friends. They literally share everything, no shame whatsoever. Everything is open to be discussed.
It’s sounds cliché, but this show has changed my life enormously. I can hear some of you thinking, ‘how could this show in particular have made a difference in your life’? No matter how you put it, sex is everywhere. But there’s so much more to it than just sex.
Throughout the various storylines, you feel empathy for them. What they go through in their (love) lives is very relatable. If you put aside all the drama, bad relationships and stupidity they are all woman who are looking for love.
This show has changed the way I look at myself, woman and men, fashion and life itself. I’ve come to understand once again that people are the way they are for a reason. People never just act upon. We all have feelings and sometimes when we speak, all the right words come out entirely wrong. What may be so obvious to us, doesn’t always make sense to others. That’s why we find ourselves lost sometimes when the people closest to us don’t seem to understand what we are saying. That’s when we start feeling frustrated, sad or even upset. And in the worst case scenario, you push them away or they push you away, all out of fear. And fear changes everything. Fear changes people and when it does, people become whole different persons. Sometimes even unrecognizable to themselves and the outside world.
This show has also changed my perspective on fashion, in such a way that from now on I am going to try to attend fashion shows in Paris and Milan as soon as I can. I think, even as an audience, when you see the latest collections on the models wearing them on the runway, I think, that creates a whole other perspective on those clothes (and jewelry and accessories). Becoming an expert about clothes is something I would love.
Personally, I think I think I have a lot in common with Carrie Bradshaw, who is also the voice behind Sex and the city. We are both writers, you could say she’s a more successful writer than I am, because she has her own column in a newspaper. Nevertheless, I have this blog and to me that’s pretty amazing. The thing about writing is you do it for yourself, but also because you want people to read your stories. Besides the fact that we both love to write, I can relate to myself as a person next to her when it comes to men.
