21 Things You Secretly Love About Sex and the City

Do you remember the noughties? When Sex and the City was  still running and no one had yet noticed how vapid, snobbish and universally rich-white-girl the world of Carrie and co. was in New York? Since the show ended in 2004, there has been a harsh backlash against the cosmopolitan lifestyle of these New York socialites whose vices of sex, shoes and sex undermine the real-life complexities of most people in the city. It’s clear to us all now that with the occasional exceptions of Miranda, no one in Sex and The City had a believable life. From Carrie’s fabulous apartment and life as a journalist (haha!) to Charlotte’s fabulous life as a Park Avenue divorcée (HAHA!), their was a gilded world of Manolos, Cosmos and unending parties. They all also somehow managed to miraculously live in the city without ever using the subway as a form of transport.

In spite of this criticism of the show however, there are plenty of us who still have a soft spot for the show. Whether it was the clothes, the aspirational lifestyles of the characters, or the magic of the city in which it was set, Sex and the City still captures much of our hopes, dreams and indeed failures of our lives. We may nowadays see Carrie as too self-involved, but this is something we most likely are all guilty of at some point. In tribute thent to the good, the bad and the ugly aspects of these characters, we compiled the 25 things you secretly love about the show.
