Married life and all the daily mind-numbing irritations of parenting, aging or any other type of right-between-the-eyes reality have NOT stopped SATC II from being as fabulous as the TV show ever was. Yet sadly, it has become the movie that every movie reviewer loves to loathe. I'd like to be able to say "Don't believe the hype." but, in this case, it is quite the opposite....

Let’s escape winter and the recession for a moment shall we? All this talk of doom and gloom combined with feeling the sting of the winter cold snap gives us the perfect reason for distracting ourselves for just a moment with a little bit of glamour.


Enter the shoe. Behold its beauty and its grace, for the humble shoe has mystical powers.
