‘And Just Like That’ Episode 5 Fashion Recap: Carrie Ditches Heels?!

Somehow, Carrie’s That’s it… the wardrobe continues to get more quirky, although you can’t exactly blame her for the eccentricities shown in Episode 5, which finds her loaded with painkillers. She needs hip surgery, which leads to two equally big life changes: She is forced to confront her age and ditch her heels. The latter sounds as upsetting as the spoiler alert: Miranda meets up with Carrie’s boss in Carrie’s kitchen. In other major developments, Miranda admits she has a drinking problem and Charlotte tries her best to accept that the 12-year-old she knows as her daughter Rose is now called Rock and uses their pronouns. But from a fashion standpoint, this episode is about Carrie. Here, a summary of her latest noteworthy looks.

Seema is stunned when Carrie — wearing only a bag this time (a raffia tote by Paco Rabanne) — casually picks up an umbrella and uses it as a cane to climb stairs. After a call from the orthopedist, she is preparing for hip surgery and repeatedly insists that she is not an old lady.

Seema is back with more neutrals from head to toe, this time in the form of a silky blouse, baggy pants and classic trench coat. (She definitely looks better than Carrie, who changed her boho outfit to a hospital gown.) At the girls’ first solo lunch with Anthony, who has become something of a replacement for Samantha, she breaks the news of her birth defect. at the hip. “We’re thrilled you found an archaeologist to see your old open carcass and try to put those polished fossils back together inside you,” he jokes.

It turns out that Carrie owns a couple of dancers in addition to the Toms she had in 2007 because they “did.” [her] I feel like a good person. “The scene of her arrival at the hospital begins with a close-up of Birkenstock sandals that she paired with pompom socks, an aspect she finds even more” creepy “than being in the hospital in the first place.” From down here I look like a Vermont art teacher, “he tells Miranda.

Carrie does her best to offset the “‘Stocks and socks” with a flared Alaïa midi skirt and vintage fringed blouse from obscure 1980s sportswear manufacturer Betty Hanson. Miranda is back with another Loewe leather bag, a vintage MaxMara blazer that complements her Akris belted denim dress. She looks like an art teacher herself as she tells Carrie that Charlotte hid a copy of her Stop it like a woman: the radical choice not to drink in an alcohol-obsessed culture. “What, bow to a bottle of vodka as it makes you double your salary to do the exact same job? ”Carrie jokes, looking more amused than worried.

After the operation, Carrie adds some dignity to her hospital gown with a Chanel cardigan in vintage tweed and pearls. (Though she doesn’t feel particularly dignified when Charlotte has to lower her down the toilet.)

Speaking of hot guys, Anthony brought company. Carrie’s loofah-like slides by Emilio Pucci take flight when one of the bellhops carries her up the stairs of her sandstone home.

Yes, Carrie is indeed recording her podcast while wearing that hat. Addicted to painkillers, she fills her mates with the time Samantha Jones pulled out her diaphragm. Charlotte, wearing a Giambattista Valli dress typical of her super-femme style, is shocked when she says the full name of their best friend.

In recent episodes, she’s been a particularly proud New Yorker: her merchandise collection includes this sweater, tote bag, and state-shaped necklace.

Carrie’s pale pink underwear makes a surprise appearance when, in a moment of real conflict, she pees into a bottle of Diet Peach Snapple.

Carrie is looking at the ship’s captain up, pajamas down when she makes her first visit to her (very attractive) physiotherapist. He asks her about her long-term physical goals and Carrie replies twice for emphasis: “Get back on heels.” The slingbacks she has added to her burgeoning ballerina collection are not up to par.

And so, after three long and hard months, she returned to her beloved heels. (In this case, a pair of sparkly Louboutins.)
