Ok. If you didn’t already drag your sweet heart,  best friend, or cube mate to see Valentine’s Day on Sunday and you’re still planning on seeing it, then go away.  I’m going to ruin this entire movie for you.

You’ve been warned.

Ok, so you all know how much I love going to the movies in NYC. It’s pretty ridiculous. Valentine’s Day was totally sold out, and there was only one Fandango kiosk open for the 9,782 people who were waiting to print their tickets. Why didn’t you print your ticket at home, you ask? Well we did, but then somehow it managed to stay on the fridge, while we were getting off the subway at Herald Square. That’s an oops.

Got seats, albeit in the last row of the front “tilt your head back, recline and enjoy Bradley Cooper 30 feet high in front of your face” seats. totally not complaining by the way. It sounded like there was some serious chatterpants happening up top half way through, and I’m glad I wasn’t a part of that.

Previews. Want to know what happens when the Sex and the City 2 preview comes on in a movie theater on Valentine’s Day? It starts as low muffled noises, then sporadic shrieking, and then the air got sucked out of the room as every single girl in that theater gasped when they realized it was in fact THE SEQUEL TO SEX AND THE CITY! At that very same moment, every guy in that theater groaned in pain, and let their heads fall back on their chairs. Collectively. I was impressed.

Hey, I’m excited. I’ll admit it. I’m pretty excited. Although… what the hell are they doing in the desert… on camels. Really SATC? Really?

Anyway, on to the movie, directed by Pretty Woman, director Garry Marshall. Predictable. Sweet. Filled with super attractive men (and women) most notably Topher Grace, who is welcome in my life any day of the week, Mc Dreamy (Patrick Dempsey), who we all loved to hate in this one, McSteamy (Eric Dane), who is pretty darn wonderful in this, and FANTASTIC to look at, and of course Cooper. Love Bradley Cooper.

Now. I have to say it was better than I thought it was going to be.  The Jennifer Garner/Ashton Kutcher storyline was cute, as was the Jamie Foxx and Jessica Biel line. I think Jessica Alba’s annoying, but maybe that was the point here. Taylor Swift, girl plays a damn good crazy. Anne Hathaway and Shirley, super fantastic too.

Here’s what I want to know… does Taylor Swift always make out with boys while  her own music plays in the background?

Also, The best part of the whole movies was at the end of the movie. Julia freakin’ Roberts rocks my world.

The end…

Driver: Miss to your left is Rodeo Drive. Have you ever shopped there?

Julia: I think so, once in the 80’s. They weren’t very nice though. Big mistake. Huge.

That line kept me giggling for an hour after I left.

For that alone Garry Marshall, well done.


You’ve all seen Steel Magnolia’s right? If you haven’t, shame on you. Stop what you’re doing and go add it to your Netflix que. Seriously. It’s a classic.

Anyway, in it Julia Roberts character, Shelby gets married with her signature colors, “blush and bashful” and then dons a matching pink suit to head off to her honeymoon. Do people still do this? Cameron Diaz puts on a honeymoon suit at the end of My Best Friend’s Wedding too. I don’t know.

I think there’s something kind of nostalgic and wonderful about the “Going -Away Outfit”.  Newlyweds used to skip the brunch the next day and head out in some classically vintage car into the night.

I’m not sure it happens anymore, except maybe in the south, but I’m really on board with bringing it back.

Carrie opted for a suit for her actual courtroom ceremony to Big in the end… but I’m really left to wonder…

Can you have your dress and still depart in a suit?

I LOVE Stephanie James Couture dresses. Perfectly vintage. Perfectly elegant. Perfect.

So yes, I do love, love, love their dresses. But, I love their suits more. They are AMAZING. You can dress me up in that any day. Doris Day meets Jackie O is serious vintage glam.
