This city ain't so sexy


Dress: H&M
Belt: MTWTFSS
Bag: Second hand
Shoes: Small town shoe store (a bargain for 5€!)
Rose pin: Second hand


Yesterday I finally went too see the much talked Sex and the City movie with my boyfriend, Ranna and her boyfriend. It wasn't news to me that the movie got really bad reviews but I just couldn't believe how bad it actually was! The plot sucked, characters looked old and jokes just weren't as funny as they used to be in the show. The only good thing about the movie was the outfits (naturally) but the whole label mentioning was a bit too overwhelming for me. They could have also left out the corny montages and cut the movie's running time in half...

Anyway, above is what I wore to the movies. Yes, I was one of those people who just had to go with the theme, and even got my boyfriend to wear a suit type outfit. The stripey dress is actually a few years old but for some reason I never really wore it. When I bought it from H&M, I instantly thought of it as "Carrie Bradshaw" like dress and pictured her wearing it with a huge pink flower pin on the chest. So what could have been a better choice for the SATC movie than the dress from back then?

P.S. I had some trouble with uploading the pictures so they were a bit pixelated in my previous post. Now I learned to use the HTML-code instead and they look much clearer! The wonders of technology...

Mullekin SATC-leffa oli tosi iso pettymys, ainoa hyvä asia siinä tosiaan oli puvustus. Ymmärrän kyllä, että elokuva on eri asia kuin moniosainen tv-sarja, mutta silti, joku raja siihen miten helposti kaikki käy...

Hehe, I thought it was sorta clear from the beginning that a SATC-movie will be all about style and clothing :P But hey, if they make a sequal, atleast it can't get any worse (like sequals usually do), since you go there to check out the outfits anyway ;)

Ihana asu! Raikas, tyylikäs, täydellinen. ü

Itse en voi sanoa pettyneeni elokuvaan, sillä minulla ei ollut kauheasti ennakko-odotuksia sen suhteen. Minulle se oli kuin pidempi jakso Sinkkuelämää, ja toimi ihan kivasti. Kakkahuumori ei iskenyt, mutta suhteellisen sama linja, luonnollisuus ja asut iskivät senkin edestä.

Mä oon kyllä erimieltä tosta leffasta. Mun mielestä se oli vihan viihdyttävä ja hoiti tehtävänaä hyvin. Eihän se nyt oscaria tule saamaan, mutta tuskin kukaan niin olettikaan :D

Hey, thanks for the great company - even though the movie was crap.
I can't understand how you have not been wearing that dress, I think it suits you perfectly!

Mä taas yllätyin positiivisesti kun näin tän leffan ja olisin voinut katsoa sitä pidempäänkin kuin sen 2½ tuntia. Muuten, kivat kengät ja mekko!

Sex and the City seems to have a polarizing effect on both men and women... people either love the movie or they hate it

Hei!

Olen lukenut blogiasi jo jonkin aikaa ja kommentoin nyt ekaa kertaa :)
Ihanaa, että joku muukin on samaa mieltä SATC-leffasta Se oli myös minun mielestäni todella huono, (monestakin syystä)vaikka sarjasta tykkäsin aikoinaan kovasti.

Shandi: Ihan totta. Kaikki ne hyvät vitsit ja oivallukset puuttui leffasta mitkä juuri teki Sinkkuelämästä Sinkkuelämän..

Idhren: Yeah that's true! Hahah..I was all about checking the outfits since I had heard it sucked. Somehow I doubt they will make that sequel, what would be next Carrie having kids? lol

Ambe: Kiitos. :) Mulla oli sama ajatus päässä, että ajattelin sitä kuin pidennettynä jaksona, mutta yksi tavallinen Sinkkuelämän jaksokin oli sata kertaa parempi kuin tuo leffa. Missä oli kaikki vitsit ja oivallukset? Asut sen sijaan olivat toinen toistaan ihanampia..

Mz: Jos se olisi ollut erillinen leffa, joka ei perustu sarjaan se olisi voinut mennä sellaisena sunnuntai-illan tv-viihteenä. Nyt kun vertaa sitä loistavaan sarjaan, joka on saanut minut enemmän kuin kerran naurunpyrähdyksiin, niin metsään mentiin tuon leffan kanssa..

Ranna: No problem. It was fun to witness something so bad together! :D Well, I think we were there just for the outfits anyway...Maybe I will start wearing this dress a bit more. I might have been the fact that when I got it, I was scared to wear it without a bra but with a bra it works..

Juusos: Makuasioista ei voi kiistellä, toiset tykkää, toiset ei. :) Kiitos kovasti!

Patrick: Yeah it seems to be that way. I as a huge movie consumer and fan, just didn't think it was good. Everything that made the show so good, was missing in the movie.

Anonymous: Heh, luulen, että aika moni sarjan fani oli pettynyt tuohon leffaan. Sehän sai murska-arvostelut lehdissä..Kiitoksia ensimmäisestä kommentista ja tervetuloa kommentoimaan uudestaan! :)

"characters looked old"

..ja ongelma oli? Nehän on yli nelikymppisiä kaikki. Mikä siinä on niin kauheaa että kerrankin elokuvissa on yli nelikymppisiä naisia jotka näyttää ikäisiltään oikeasti?

Sinäkin vanhenet, vois tehdä elämästä helpompaa jos hyväksyisit sen.

Ne: Im 168 cm, which is about 5'6 or 5'7. :)

Anonymous: Tiedän, että vanhenen. Oliko tuo joku vihje? Hah. Tarkoitin vaan sitä, että se sarjan hohto on kaikin puolin kadonnut tuossa elokuvassa..Ei sillä, että asialla olisi jotakin merkitystä, mutta osuipahan vaan silmään. :D

Hi, having just watched the SATC movie (one way to spend the Midsummer is staying at the countryside, watching movies on the internet ;)),I have to agree it sucked big time. Even the costumes were a disappointment - in the tv show (especially in the Olden Days), Carrie's style was about mixing thrift store finds and designer stuff, looking fabulous in 5 dollar pieces, taking risks and trying on different styles, and sometimes failing gloriously, now it's about expensive designer dresses, designer head-to-toe, and where's the excitement in that, huh?!

The actors lacked the spark and chemistry that used to make them so good together, and even Smith looked not-so-hot! And what was that thing about Samantha's "weight-gain"?!?!

Anyway, you look lovely in your Carrie dress, good luck with this new-old blog! :)

Sugar Kane: I have to agree with you. I liked the outfits as designer items but they were not something Carrie would wear in the show. I also thought her designer wear waws more about vintage and the one thing she spend money on was the shoe collection...I think the arguments about money really showed in the actors performace which is really sad. Like you said, the chemistry was definately lacking. Smith was not so hot, he as well looked old and I really didn't undestand the whole weight gain thing of Samanthas either. You were smart to download the movie, at least you didnt spend your pennies at the movies and not get your money's worth. :D

En tiedä mikä siinä on, mutta mun ruudulle ainakaan kuvasi ei lataudu ollenkaan! Harmi. en siis niitä voi kommentoida :/ Itse en edes aio mennä koko leffaa katsomaan, tietäähän sen että puoli tuntia kestäviin sarjoihin perustuvat leffat ei vaan toimi. Tai ainakaan itse en ole sellaiseen törmännyt.. :)

Sarakissa: No sepä harmi.. koititko eri selaimella? Kannattaahan tuo leffa toki tarkistaa, mutta en tiedä kannattaako siitä maksaa 10 Euroa leffateatterissa...ladatakkin kun voi. :D

I'm so glad you posted that! You are the only blogger I've read who didn't think the movie was "fabulous". THANK YOU! (You are ever lovely)

Rachael: Is that so? I didn't know that..hehe. That's cool though, I'm the one who swims upstream then. :D I'm glad you liked my post. :)
