Samantha Jones is not in this episode, which is a damn shame.
Fug File: The Carrie Diaries
In which we get a surprise Pat Morita visit — no, not from the Great Beyond — and some overalls and a scene that really, really annoyed me. Aren’t I such a salesman?
Two things: If we are to believe that this guy is in high school, then this show is doing a real Steve Sanders job of casting; and if he’s NOT in high school, then suddenly it’s an ABC Family joint up in here.
Yet another still from the set that fails at the ’80s aesthetic. Not that I really knew what boys his age — whatever his alleged age is — were wearing in the ’80s, because I was still in love with Stefan Edberg and he only wore tennis whites. But Googling “Brad Pitt 80s” teaches me that he should be wearing this, and the Internet would never lie. As for Carrie, the shoes are again quite cute, and the print and the fact of a bow seem decade-appropriate, but not deployed quite this way. Also, is there going to be a scene where Dadshaw wonders if Carrie has sustained a head injury? Just curious.

Well, we’ve seen some very interesting neon gear from the young ’80s Carrie Bradshaw; now let’s see what Samantha Jones is up to over there.
Personally, I don’t think Samantha Jones ever would have worn a skirt that fit SO BADLY. Then again, the whole point of this is that Samantha Jones, too, was once young and didn’t have it all figured out, and had to learn by trial-and-error not to wear one of these skirts that rides up and up until you are Public Labia No. 1. Personally, when trying to costume Young Samantha, I think for obvious reasons they should have looked to Mannequin for guidance. That movie is a treasure. LET IT BE YOUR TROVE.
It feels a bit like spoiling myself to look at these, but then again, the show doesn’t air until January — so by the time I recap it I’m sure I will have forgotten all about these pictures, and it’ll be like falling in WTF all over again.
