As soon as a desperate Carrie Bradshaw emerged from the big black car And just like that … Episode three, trying to meet up with Big’s ex-wife Natasha, I grabbed the remote and hit pause. Is she wearing the belt? The same belt from the 2008 Sex and the City Film that held her green floral dress under the contrasting short-sleeved coat? Of course she was. She first paired it with the famous Timmy Woods Eiffel Tower bag for house hunting with Big, the distinctive accessory most likely remember from the first scene of the film.
“I can’t think of a show that can go back into the lead actress’ archives and pull out a belt.”
But I always had eyes for the belt, which Sarah Jessica Parker later called “Roger”. I loved when she wore it over a pink mini dress to go shopping later in the movie. And I still love it now, over another pink dress 13 years later when the series rebooted. In fact, Carrie recycles her outfits, which we all appreciate for more than one reason.
“She’s good at recycling and that’s what makes this show such a unicorn. I can’t think of a show that can go back into the lead actress ‘archives and pull out a belt and say,’ Hey, why not? do we use Roger with this outfit? ‘ And it goes back to her 12 years later. I think it’s really unusual to draw from their archives and incorporate them into their modern wardrobe, “costume designer Molly Rogers told POPSUGAR, admitting that fans who saw the show would be able to do things in-depth Pick the background.

Well, color me to one of those fans. Of course we all have our favorite Carrie Bradshaw outfits, but seeing them come back to life also speaks to the current climate we are in, with so many of us repurposing our wardrobes to better protect and protect the environment reduce our carbon footprint, but also to extend the life of our worn-out pieces that have permeated history. “Sarah Jessica loves things that are in need. They have such energy. When you put on a hat and it’s 40 years old … vintage clothing has stories,” said Molly.
The Roger belt itself was originally from co-customer Danny Santiago’s second-hand collection, and he gave it to Sarah Jessica Parker to hold onto after the film. Then she let the cloakroom team back in her closet while she was looking for AJLT. “We knew we had unlimited access to SJP’s wonderful archives and thought that anything we gave a second chance had to be a fan favorite, like the Roger belt or the blue manolos,” Molly said, referring to too on the pumps Carrie wears the night of Big’s death.
If you’ve got a good eye, these two Carrie keepsakes won’t be the only ones you’ll recognize if you keep enjoying the episodes, but the Belt moment was certainly worth discussing – for me anyway. From green dress to pink, Carrie wears it well and gives her looks an unexpected edge, but whimsically speaking, complete and total vintage magic. Pre-shop some versions of the belt that have made the rounds on the internet to prove that Carrie Bradshaw’s style still stands the test of time.
