Thanks to The Style Spy, the lovely Melissa and I were lucky enough to be able to attend the premiere screening of Sex and the City 2 last night. Donning cute dresses, with our complimentary Big City cupcakes and swag bags in hand, we sat in the centre of the theatre with huge smiles on our faces while we experienced 2.5 hours of fashion, glamour, sisterhood and humor.
The plot was much lighter than the first film, less drama. But the extravagance factor was turned up full blast. I’d heard mixed reviews going in (Ivanka Trump claims to have left early because she disliked it so much), so I suppose I adjusted my expectations accordingly; however, I did really enjoy it. What’s not to love? It felt like catch up time with my favourite well dressed New Yorkers.
There’s still some special kind of magic and chemistry within this group of babes. No matter how mediocre the script, spending time with these ladies who we have come to love, while appreciating the beautiful designer fashions and accessories that they are draped in from head to toe equals FUN.
Afterward, we scored tickets to the “Carrie On” after party at Joey’s Burrard, sponsored by the Beat 94.5 FM. We spent the rest of the evening drinking (what else?) cosmos, tasting delicious appies and engaging in some serious girl talk. We even walked away with adorbable SATC2 martini glasses. Love-love.
Oh, and Lee– when can Mel and I come to visit you in the “new Middle East?” We want to wear Vuitton and Chanel while we ride camels and drink cocktails in the sand of Abu Dhabi.
