Carrie decides to make the purse her own by going Jackson Pollack on it with a bunch of bottle of nail polish. Dooney and/or Burke is rolling over in their respective graves and I’m sure Jackson Pollack ain’t thrilled with being a part of this monstrosity either.
When bad things happen to good leather
The next day Carrie is ready to go into Manhattan. Like Manhattan, her mom’s purse had seen better days, but Carrie wouldn’t change it for the world.
Carrie’s dad drops her off at the law office and confirms that Carrie will take the train home at 6pm, and will then go to the school dance, but will definitely be home by curfew.
This is the beginning of her “Manhattan Love Story.”
I’ve never seen a skyscraper before…
Carrie looks around and up at the TALL buildings, like a hillbilly tourist from the holler, and some random dude runs into her, knocking her down., causing a run in her stocking.
Once inside the law office, Carrie’s no-nonsense boss, Crabby McCrabberson, shows Carrie to her post…in the basement. Carrie will be filing old case files. Crabby McCrabberson instructs her that there are to be NO PERSONAL CALLS, and suggests she use her ½ hour lunch hour to get some new stockings at “Century 21.” (For those that don’t know- Century 21 is a Department Store in lower Manhattan, very near the World Trade Center site. It has a mishmash of designer clothing at discounted prices.)
At lunch, Carrie goes to Century 21 and is in AWE. At Century 21, you can walk in one person and walk out another. Carrie spies a cocktail dress when a random lady comes up and grabs Carrie’s purse.
Don’t jack my bag, bitch!
Carrie is about to throw down with this chick because she thinks her purse is being stolen. “Oh no! I don’t want to steal it, I want to shoot it!!” The random lady, named Larissa, is a stylist for Interview Magazine and absolutely loves Carrie’s nail polish damaged purse!!
You Connecticut white girls are so clueless
Carrie is dumbfounded! Larrissa is, like, totally awesome! Of course, 3 seconds later Carrie is the a dressing room with Larissa, a total stranger, while she tries on lingerie. Totally probable. Larissa wants Carrie to help her because Carrie has such amazing style. All of this BS has taken WAY more than Carrie’s 30 minute lunch! As Carrie leaves the store, the alarm goes off. The guard checks Carrie’s bag, and sees she has paid for her stockings and lets her go.
Gurrrrrrrl, I just, totally, stole this outfit and was ready to let you take the fall. Wanna be my new BFF????
