it's about time

I know this is hard to believe but until today, I hadn't seen Sex and the City. My friend Ashley and I have been meaning to go see it together but just never got around to it. She already saw it the weekend it came out. If a movie has been out for more than two weeks, I usually just wait for it to come out on DVD. Well, she called last week and we decided to go see it today.

We met around 2 though the movie didn't start until 3. We grabbed frappucinos from Starbucks and browsed through a couple stores. First store was American Apparel. I had to try on the infamous le sac dress... well, we both did. She's a size minus 6 and well, I'm not. In any case, it looked very cool on both of us. I tried it on two ways and she tried it on a completely different way. I love the options it offers. It was apricot with a fuchsia lamé strap. I wanted to get it but decided to wait until the next coupon code comes up. Ashley bought the halter jumper. It was uber hot on her. Second store was Urban Outfitters. We pretty much just walked through noticing this and that.

tri-blend romper $28

And finally, the moment came. We watched Sex and the City. From the start of the movie, my eyes constantly watered and at moments, floods of teardrops gushed from my eyes. I tend to do that but not to that degree. The nostalgia of the characters and their stories got to me. I'm so glad I finally watched it and now I want the book about the movie. Kinda cheesy, I know but I want it, okay!

When I got home, I went to the AA website to see the other color options of the sac dress. The store only had two- the apricot one I mentioned and then fuchsia with a purple lamé strap. To my dismay, the website only has white with black lamé stripe (edit: two more colors just popped up). I guess that means I'm stopping by the store and picking up the apricot one. I'm so excited.

Anyways, this is what I wore. I'm glad I had the cardigan because it was cold in the theater. I liked the camisole tucked in but I discovered that I like it to untucked, too. I will have to try that next time.

Finally they have some samples of "Le Sac" Dress. Last week it was all sold out on their online stores. Also in local store the SA told me that it was sold out in a minute! Crazy, I'm still debatting about which colour to take.

I wish I knew all the colors it comes in. My AA had two and the website only has 3. A new AA will be opening soon but I don't know when. I bet it will have a lot. It's an awesome dress though and a good deal at its price.
