A Woman's Right To Shoes
February 11, 2011 - Kim Collette
A Woman's Right to Shoes.....ahhhhh...one of my favorite Sex and the City (SATC) episodes. I started thinking about it the other day. And, now more than ever, it is hitting home. In this particular episode, Carrie is invited to her friend's baby shower. When Carrie arrives she finds out that she has to remove her Manolo Blahnik's. As Carrie is leaving she realizes that her $485 shoes have been stolen!
During the episode, she realizes that she has come through every time for this particular friend. Meaning......she has gone to the bachelorette party, wedding, baby showers and birthdays. And each time has "done the right thing" and bought a gift. And, her friend doesn't want to replace her shoes! Here is where it hit home for me......I FEEL LIKE CARRIE! Carrie's solution was to register herself at Manolo Blahnik in "recognition of her just announced marriage to herself."
I don't have a solution in the "real world." And just so you all know, I am in wonderful relationship. However, I am not married and I don't have any children. So there are no "events" that friends every have to buy me gifts for either!
So to all of us "Carrie's" in the world. Remember how SATC ends....Carrie gets her guy....and probably gifts from her registry too!
Until next time friends!
