CARRIE: I am the author of this blog. My name is Claudia Moore and I am an exhibit designer for a gallery in New York City. I am twenty-four and have lived here in New York for my whole life. I love old movies and live for vintage. I wear dresses as much as possible and when I am not I wear short shorts or skinny jeans. I express myself through what I wear which is usually cute and fun but at the same time skanky. I love my record player, my Starbucks expresso machine, and my computer. I have a bit of a substance abuse problem which shoes and men.
CHARLOTTE: She’s my best friend. Even though we are opposites, we have still been best friends since eighth grade. She lives on the Upper east Side, I live on the Upper west side. She loves Chanel, Ralph Lauren, Micheal Kors, and Burberry and I love Marni, Balmain, D&G, Alexander Wang, Derek Lam, and Marc Jacobs. Her type is a Wall Street guy ready for marriage and my type varies from successful rocker (no one is sleeping on my couch) to an argumenative lawyer or a spontaneous CEO, but with any guy, I do not believe marriage is in my near future. She does PR and plans parties for celebrities that if I met, would put restraining orders against me. Even though, she’s Miss Park Avenue Pollyanna, she still gets drunk like no other.
MIRANDA: Miranda is like me in alot of ways because she’s pretty easy-going and fun. She works downtown at an advertisting company and has fallen hard for her boss. So cliché – totally unlike the Miranda in Sex and the City. What my “Miranda” does have in common with the real “Miranda” is that they both speak theri mind and fight for themselves. I wouldn’t even be able to count all of the unpolitically correct things my friend has said. I can count on her for a reality check every now and then and she’s an amazing friend since she’s so honest and trustworthy and she gets us in all the fun parties she helps plan.
SAMANTHA: If you thought that my friend Charlotte was like the real Charlotte then you will be blown away (using the operative word) by the simmilarities between Samantha Jones and Samantha, my friend. The non-fictional Samantha is a movie producer’s assistant and basically is the definition of “sleeping your way to the top”. She slept with every director in town, of course only the cute ones, until she landed her current job (another operative word). She’s definitely is the most fun out of my friends and I absolteuly love meeting up with her for brunches, although she almost always shows up in a man’s dress shirt and her six inch high heels from the night before. Okay, I can’t say she isn’t a slut but her one-night stands are rare, unlike the “Sam” you all know, and most of her lovers actually are friends of her’s still.
As for the boys, like trends, they will come and go but my girls will always stay.
Some boys in my life right now I’ll call:
Two Face – This one guy who can be so hot sometimes and then other times so atrocious. I’ve only hooked up with him once but this summer we might be running into eachother a lot since his family also has a house in the Hamptons so hopefully he’ll stay cute for June and July.
Cary Grant – This guy is a editor of some major movies and I think even has been nominated for an Academy Award for Editing but that’s not what makes him amazing. He’s the type of guy that holds the door for a woman, pulls out her chair, and always pays on a date. I met him through Samantha (Ironic, I know) and I would have already been thinking of children’s names if he didn’t live in LA.
Standford – Another Sex and the City reference, their gay best friend. However my “Standford” is not gay, that I know of. He is my best guy friend but I often think of him as more that just that.
Mr. Recession-Free – This guy is one of the richest bachelors in the world and yet I still find fault with him. Actually he is my ex for now a year but things with us were pretty serious (“Charlotte” even started looking for wedding locations, but of course she does that with every guy). He lives off of his parent’s money and sometimes goes into his father’s offices to maybe read the Times and check emails. We actually broke up because of my ‘commitment issues’ but really I was only twenty-three and had only been out of college for a year, so of course I was not looking to fully comite just yet. He’s the only ex I still talk to because since he is five years older than me he kind of treats me as a younger sister – in some perverse way.
Richards – Inspired by Keith Richards, I named this next one Richards since he’s the bad boy rocker my parents would never allow me to date. He plays in a band that’s a regular at most of the clubs downtowns and I always run into him fortunately.
