Sex, the City, and the Sage in Designer Shoes

Explore the wit and hidden wisdom of Sex and the City's favorite, glam girl next door, Carrie Bradshaw.

For four seasons viewers hung on this phrase, uttered by Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw (played by Sarah Jessica Parker): writer, shoe collector, and hopeless romantic that lives in all of us. When HBO's Sex and the City came on the scene in 1998, shows with female ensembles that explored the lives and experiences of women were relegated to niche programming on networks such as Lifetime. Sex and the City blew the genre wide open, revolutionizing the nature of women's content on television and bringing forth complex characters infinitely relatable in their flaws, fears, hopes, goals, and unbreakable bond of friendship that carried them through the good and bad times. The first cable t.v. show to win an Emmy for comedy, Sex and the City became more than a television staple, it became a cultural phenomenon: influencing fashion trends, spawning New York City tours of the girls' favorite locales, launching a full-length movie with the sequel set to hit theaters on May 27, and offering up some insightful wisdom along the way. Here are 10 Carrie Bradshaw quotes on love, life, and everything in between.

Man may have discovered fire, but women discovered how to play with it. --"Evolution," 1999. Though Samantha and Miranda retained their outspoken nature throughout the show, the early seasons found Carrie on the somewhat cynical or cheeky side. This arch quote illustrates a theme of women's self-awareness and empowerment, threaded throughout the series.

The universe may not always play fair, but at least it's got a hell of a sense of humor. --"What goes around, comes around," 2000. Part of what made all of the characters engaging was their fallibility. Not only did circumstances sour for the girls from time to time, but the were able to take responsibility for their actions and acknowledge the roles they played in contributing to those situations, ultimately learning humility and resilience.

I will never be the woman with the perfect hair, who can wear white and not spill on it. --"Attack of the Ten Foot Woman," 2000. Despite Carrie's gorgeous, down-to-earth beauty, she, along with her friends, fell victim to the kinds of insecurities that all women could relate to. The high powered, couture-centric, image conscious backdrop of New York City inflated the desire women feel to compete with one another for men and power. This quote highlights another important theme in the series: self-acceptance.

I'm thinking balls are to men, what purses are to women. It's just a little bag but we'd feel naked in public without it.-- "Belles of the Balls," 2001. When Carrie wasn't chasing after a relationship, she was using her journalistic curiosity to offer some hilarious and insightful thoughts on men, women, and what makes each gender so fascinating and frustrating. The show took a productive risk with this episode, which followed a story arc involving Miranda's ex-boyfriend's Steve's bout with testicular cancer. The writers were able to show a more vulnerable aspect of masculinity, reminding viewers that men are prone to the same kinds of complex insecurities as women.

Maybe the past is like an anchor holding us back. Maybe, you have to let go of who you were to become who you will be. --"Anchors Away," 2002. While the girls were searching for love (or at least their next fling in Samantha's case), they were also searching for themselves. The show resonated with young women for its more fantastical aspects, such as Carrie's unlimited designer shoe supply paid for on a newspaper columnist's budget, but because it echoed the very real journey that most women go through in their 20s and 30s, which involves opening yourself up to experiences in order to learn, grow, and evolve as a woman.

Oh my God! Do you know what these are? Manolo Blahnik Mary Janes! I thought these were an urban shoe myth! --"A Vogue Idea," 2002. Carries penchant for unavailable men is secondary in legend to her love affair with shoes. Though the series might earn criticism for its endorsement of material culture, this quote pays homage to the art and craftsmanship of shoes and the sheer, playful pleasure they produce.

I like my money where I can see it - hanging in my closet. --"To Market, To Market," 2003. Similar to the previous quote, Carrie's delight in her fashion "friends," celebrates the power of style, especially individual style as Carrie's clothes demonstrate over the course of the series.

So maybe it won't look like you thought it would in high school, but it's important to remember that love is possible. Anything is possible. This is New York. --"Boy Interrupted," 2003. Carrie's unwaning belief in love and surprises that come when you put aside your fears and give into your faith often showed itself in the other relationship featured in the show: the love affair with New York. New York City became another metaphor for the power of actualizing your dreams and remaining open to the mysteries of life.

The fact is, sometimes it's really hard to walk in a single woman's shoes. That's why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun. --"A Woman's Right to Shoes," 2003. Manolo Blahnik's might not be considered one of life's "little" indulgences, but it remains that even in the fictionalized universe of Sex and theCity, the daily grind takes its toll. Carrie reminds us the importance of rewarding ourselves, which is a truism especially critical for women to grasp. In the midst of such busy lives and careers, women often put themselves last.

Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous. --"American Girl in Paris," 2004. These are Carrie's final thoughts in the series' last episode as she, newly returned from Paris to the waiting arms of her loves, Big and New York, prepares to start a new phase of her life. This quote encapsulates Carrie's journey from chasing after love to catching up with herself and serves as a powerful statement for the legions of female viewers following in Carrie's Manolo-clad steps.
