How Would Carrie Bradshaw Weather the Recession? SJP Sounds Off

Carrie Bradshaw may be the ultimate symbol of the fashionista who puts their wardrobe over their nest egg — who can forget Carrie’s realization that the down payment for her apartment had gone to her shoe collection instead? So how would the iconic Sex and the City character handle today’s economic woes? Sarah Jessica Parker opines to Harper’s Bazaar, “She would probably end up in a hospital. Perhaps she would go back to her ’80s stuff and start bringing it out again.” As for the March cover girl, her own take on the recession is a bit less dramatic. “I know so many people who have lost jobs, are losing jobs, husbands who have lost jobs. I can’t imagine going shopping.” But that said, Parker does allow that “I don’t have the Carrie Bradshaw passion and devotion to it, but I would much prefer that life would allow for a beautiful shoe all day long.” As for Bradshaw’s legendary wardrobe, the actress, who maintains a very un-Carrie-like home (“Friends are readily disappointed by the size of my closet.”), she enthuses, “I got to wear such incredible things, and you make such mistakes and there’s such hits and great triumphs and there’s incredible wrong, wrong, wrong…But it’s so much fun.” Read the full interview with Sarah Jessica at harpersbazaar.com. Tell us: How are you weathering the recession? Are you taking it like Carrie might or like Sarah Jessica herself?

HEY LORI NYC- LEARN HOW TO READ- SJP SAID SHE CAN’T IMAGINE GOING SHOPPING (IN THESE TOUGH TIMES) NOT “NOT GOING SHOPPING” SHE ISNT LIKE THAT- SHE ISNT UR NORMAL DIVA CELEB- TOTALLY THE OPPOSITE ACTUALLY

Instead of bashing what SJP does or doesn’t look like, I’m going to answer the question…

Totally have cut back on extras or even needed clothing items for that matter. Going to have to say more like SJP then Carrie regarding the recession. It sucks but it forces you to be creative with your old clothes…great time to reinvent.

Props to SJP recoginizing what’s going on in the “real world”. I understand celeberties are part of the real world but it’s a lot easier for them to turn a blind eye when their more than likely raking a good amount of $$ in.
