Everyone online is saying this is a Vivienne Westwood skirt as well.  One of the more odder choices :)   I mean, from the front, I absolutely love it......

That green skirt is SHORT. Carrie looks great in it, but how do you sit down in a skirt that short? I’d be concerned sitting on something unclean in public.
 

Remember how we said once upon a time in this thread that Carrie often looked like she was wearing a costume? That skirt was one of those times. That back looks like a bunny tail!

lol! That would stand out less in NYC than some random town in the USA though, right? That's my guess as a non-New Yorker. If it's still extremely short anywhere, I guess it's just as practical as all those high heels. I wear high heels less when I'm in New York than I do back home because of all the walking. I want to be Carrie Bradshaw when I'm visiting, but I just can't, at least not a ton.

Always did wonder why Lynn Cohen (Magda) looked so familiar to me beyond that role: I found an old article about actors that appeared in the Law & Order franchise, and she had a recurring role as a judge for many seasons, Elizabeth Mizener.

She even appeared on the spinoffs (Criminal Intent and SVU) of the time, too!

Probably threw me off because, if I recall, the judge had no accent, as Cohen played Magda with!

Oh yeah, I knew the accent was for the character not the actress.

Given that practically every character actor based in NYC appeared in the L&O franchise at some point, I suspect it'd be faster to list SATC's secondary/guest actors who didn't appear on L&O!

(Yep. I just had some fun on IMDB randomly clicking on actors who did an ep or two of SATC. Most of them have at least one L&O appearance.)

SATC costume designer Pat Field wrote a book called Pat in the City.   She admits Carrie dressed as Heidi in the park was a bit too much. I think most of us would agree.

Heidi was better than the pink and lime green blouse?/skirt combo with a belt around her bare waist for no good reason at all (wedding dress hive episode). 
 

I was thinking of the episode where Miranda decides to give it a try with Steve, because Big “came through” for Carrie in a big way. Meaning, he had dinner with her and her friends in a nice restaurant in the same city where he lives and has a personal chauffeur, as they had previously planned. 
 

The bar is so low it’s in Hell with that plot line.

Big was such a jerk. They had been dating a while and he agreed to meet her friends and then just wasn’t going to come??? It wasn’t as if he was sick or got stuck at work he just wasn’t going to HAVE DINNER?? Ugh I have been over this before, but why did Carrie even want him???

I was about to comment on how fabulous she looked until I saw the back and it looked like she was pooping out cotton.

I could have lived with that outfit if not for the belt.

Other than the Heidi outfit the other outfit I hated was the shorts and heels Carrie had on when she lost Pete while walking him meeting up with Big.

Speaking of Big in Pat Field's book she casually mentions Chris Noth was not comfortable around women.  She said John Corbett wanted to wear a lot of his own turquois jewelry which she fought him on.  Thought Kristin Davis was her Bettie Page because she had an hourglass figure.  Fought to get Cynthia Nixon out of the bland suits.  Loved SJP and Kim Cattrall.

Mostly because he had money and because he didn't love her, IMO. Carrie needed the thrill of the chase, it was the topic of an entire episode with Aidan. Once she got Big, she tired of him, too.

Absolutely, her designer wardrobe was not going to be paying for itself.

I think Big represented the upper echelon of NYC society that Carrie really wanted to join.

Also, Carrie often said that she wanted amazing passion all the time. That is not what a stable long-term relationship is about. 

Sure, your long-term partner should always make your heart flutter but stable relationships are about comfort, familiarity, and security.

Pat Field did not like people questioning Carrie's ability to have and have room for that wardrobe.  She told one journalist you don't know Carrie's life. I guess meaning we don't know what happened in Carrie's life that wasn't onscreen.

In the beginning, her wardrobe was much more in line with her income.

She would have a few designer pieces that she would pair with some relatively inexpensive thrift store finds.

I look at the later seasons as fantasy and it is still fun to critique her outfits, both good and bad.

I think her newspaper dress was an iconic moment but I know some people who hate that dress.

The later seasons were when designers were clamoring to have their stuff on the show. The early seasons designers would not return Pat Field's calls.

Not all the fashion worked for me. Some of it was too costumey.  One thing Pat Field did that I applaud her for was she made sure even though Samantha was active with men she didn't let her be dressed as cheap or slutty.

Definitely.

Except for a few missteps here and there (and let's be honest we all sometimes make fashion mistakes) Samantha looked classy, not trashy.

Actually, I think Carrie had a more risqué wardrobe than Samantha.

And yet she was so judgemental about Sam's sex life ! 😄

Which was particularly weird since she was a sex columnist.

Sam probably gave her some of her best articles.

Yes I did think it was weird how Carrie was so uptight about sex but was a sex columnist. For example when she dated the bisexual guy (she was pretty ignorant there) the freak out about anal-I cannot see four grown ass women needing to have a powwow about anal. Discussing it with your friends, fine, I could even maybe buy Charlotte’s reaction, but Carrie was kind of uptight. Oh and when she dated the politician who was into “golden showers”.

The politician was hot, but that is one kink I will never understand.

Yeah, I understand Carrie's reactions sometimes, and that was definitely one of them.  She was very polite about the whole thing, just not into it!

She was polite but she acted like she had never heard of it before!

All this is sooo true.  After many years, men get lazy.  Mine still makes my heart flutter when I see him, but I’m sure his heart flutters when he’s playing golf.  Lol.  I’m watching when Big gives Carrie a t.v. for the bedroom and she hates it.  She has lots to learn.
