Sex and the City

Carrie Bradshaw’s life in New York City-inspired thousands to move there. Granted, she had a life not all of us could afford or even aspire to have. But hey, why let that stop us Big Apple Dreamers? All we’d need are some BFFs like Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda, and we’d be set.

Sex and the City is still talked about for its provocative nature, especially in regards to the openness the show had towards women and sex. It was one of the first shows to feature women having casual relationships that didn’t necessarily include feelings.

Prior to it, we had show after show about men doing the same thing while women longed after them, but Sex and the City showed the world that things could cut both ways. Obviously, our love of the series didn’t stop when it ended.

We’ve since had two movies to follow the original six-season run of the show, and talks of a limited series in the works. We can’t get enough of Carrie and her friends, because they taught women everywhere to own their sexual desires and never be ashamed of them.

Also, the clothes. We might miss Carrie’s clothing most of all.
