The Religion Of The 90’s
SEASONE ONE – EPISODE TWELVE; “Oh Come All Ye Faithful”: Season finale all about religion!The four girls are faced with religious matters, and they understand that nowadays worshipping is stricktly related to relationships. “Are relationships the religion of the ’90s?” Carrie wonders as she writes her column. She decides to search deeper. As Carrie studies people and their relationship with religion, she sees Big coming out of the church with another woman (his mother).
As curious as she is, she decides she wants to meet momma Big, but her boyfriend won’t let her. So she decides to spy on them the next Sunday morning, at church. The disappointment is real when, after being recognized in church for making a bible drop on the floor in the middle of the function, she is introduced to Big’s mother as “My friend Carrie.”
Miranda too has to face religion, when his boyfriend Thomas confesses his need to take a shower after having sex, to wash the sin away.
Carrie has another problem to face though… Big has organized a trip for two to the Caribbean, but she needs to tell him how uncomfortable she feels about their unbalanced relationship. Even though he told her she needed to be more faithful, Carrie feels she needs a different kind of faith, “Faith in myself. Faith that I would one day meet someone…”. The voice over tells us about these feeling of hers, while she watches Big leave her and we admire her classy outfit with red heels.
FASHION BONUS: Even though the setting of the scene isn’t the happiest, I fell in love with Carrie’s outfit at the end of the episode. She was (physically) ready to leave for the Caribbean, wearing a high waisted navy blue skirt with white polka dots, a white top that leaves her shoulders naked and red slip on shoes.
FASHION BONUS 2: Double feature for this episode! I also loved Carrie’s retro outfit she wore at church.
She goes for a green and white striped dress, whose shape reminds me of a 40’s dress; she wears a big, floppy beige hat and a pair of white, lace-like gloves. Everything is then topped with a purple clutch undr her left arm.
