14 Things We Miss About Sex and The City
February 22, 2004, was the date the last episode of “Sex and The City” aired. Although the show ended 14 years ago it never stopped airing in our hearts. From the memorable Samantha lines to Carrie’s fabulous shoe obsession (which till this day, makes us feel completely normal no matter what people say!) we want to honor our Sex and The City obsession with these 14 things we will never stop missing from the show.
“The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself.” Carrie Bradshaw just had a way of connecting with us, from the break-ups to just plain shower thoughts she always knew the right things to say.
“Welcome to the age of un-innocence. No one has breakfast at Tiffany’s and no one has affairs to remember.” They saw they ate they concurred. Carrie and the girls ate at some of the hottest restaurants in NYC and gave us a taste of fine dining in the big apple.
The Night Life
It wouldn’t be Sex and the City without the amazing parties. We lived vicariously through Carrie and the girls and the exclusive and lavish parties they attended.
“I have this little substance abuse problem … Expensive footwear.” Carrie’s one true love was shoes and this was a relationship we were all on board for.
Samantha’s Uncensored Sass
“If I worried what every bitch in New York was saying about me, I’d never leave the house.” You couldn’t forget some of Samantha’s lines even if you tried (but why would you even want to?).
The Carrie and Big Drama
They’re the couple we love to hate, from seeing Carrie at the peak of her happiness to seeing her at the lowest of her lows we loathed this relationship #TeamAiden but as much as we hated seeing them together we couldn’t help but peak in.
Water is to the ocean as Cosmo is to Sex and The City. Nothing says Sex and The City like the Carrie and the girls drink of choice.
“Charlotte: I’m married, I can’t be looking at gardeners. This is insane. Samantha: Honey, what’s the point of being in the suburbs if you’re not going to fuck a gardener?” We love Charlotte and her innocence…especially when Samantha is trying to corrupt her.
“You don’t need a diamond ring when you can have a really big closet” Sex and The City brought us some of the most iconic outfits from the fabulous dresses to the iconic pink tutu, Sex and The City was very in-tune with the fashion world and definitely played a part in some new trends Thanks Patricia Fields.
From cowboy hats and boas to Carrie’s iconic nameplate Sex and the City made these accessories a huge part of the show and must-have items for fans everywhere.
Miranda’s Strong Will
As a determined, career driven, successful woman, Miranda was not only one of the strongest characters on the show but also a huge role model for women who value their independence.
The Painful Accuracy of Dating in New York
The “Big Apple” is known as the city that never sleeps…mostly because of all the single people who are stressed out about their dating lives. Sex and The City was one of the first shows that perfectly captured the many pros and cons of dating in New York City (we feel for you girl).
“And finally, the most important break-up rule: no matter who broke your heart, or how long it takes to heal, you’ll never go through it without your friends.” We’ve all heard and experienced our horror story break-ups but probably none as bad as the infamous Berger-Carrie post-it note break-up. Sex and the City helped us cope with some our bad break-ups by either helping us relate or making us feel better that it didn’t happen to us.
“They say nothing lasts forever; dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style.” No matter what happened or what each character was going through they were always there for each other and supported one another.
