Girl Talk: SATC 2: Fashion and Fun hits home

Posted May 26, 2010

I saw SATC2 just a few days after it came out and I must say I wasn’t disappointed. As a die-hard fan, I was just so happy to see them on the screen again. Of course there's more to it than that: I haven't met a single girl out there who can’t relate to some of the issues these girls go through. I often told myself that they should make the SATC DVDs mandatory in sex-ed…I mean, what better way for a guy to learn about the female "psyche"? The episodes are so funny because they’re outrageously true to life! (Well at least this has been my experience). The second SATC movie also had all the extravagant fashion you could ask for…lots of fabulous high-low combinations for the daring. You have to love a girl who can dress in a purple tutu in the middle of the desert and not break a sweat!

Beyond the laughter and frivolous fashion, this movie offered some meaningful advice...nothing revolutionary, rather, the type of things we take for granted and forget to prioritize despite their importance. The first having to do with space: every individual in a couple or family needs their personal space to just be once in a while, without interruption. How can I miss you if you won’t go away :D ?! It seems so obvious but very few people make it a priority out of fear of being labeled selfish. Far from's a necessity! Second, because the world has corrupted our sensitive minds, we make up stories that make us perceive issues that are non-existent in reality (see: Charlotte and the milk-dud nanny). Stop worrying about what you can’t control and focus on what you can do to make the situation better. Translation: stop being paranoid! (it's your insecurity calling and it wants to ruin your day). Now, don't get me wrong, sometimes there are situations where you can't let things fly...but just don't make a mountain out of a molehill; if it becomes a habit, it'll cast a shadow on your happiness.

From one girl to another, it’s good advice to protect your sanity and enjoy time out for you and the step up, step out, take a trip, take a sip, have a laugh, dance all night, sing out loud, and shop ‘til you drop! In case no one has ever told you, you deserve it, simply for having the talent to walk in those heels ;)
