Sex and the City Style: Miranda

Today we're celebrating Miranda's style! Oh, has she come a long way since the early days of the series! Do you remember some of her frumpy garbs? She was a fashion mess, if you ask me.

Her witty humor never let us down, though. As I was looking up Miranda quotes to share with you all, I realized she had some of the funniest lines from the series. I was cracking up! Hope you enjoy!!

"I said no white, no ivory, no nothing that says virgin. I have a child. The jig is up."
-Miranda Hobbes

Samantha (about her vibrator) : I'm telling you, I went into the kitchen to get it—
Miranda : Wait, why was it in the kitchen?
Samantha : I like to mix it up.

Miranda : I had to walk all the way from the subway in these heels. My feet are killing me.
Steve : Why didn't you just carry them and wear sneakers like everyone else?
Miranda : Stop. You can take me out of Manhattan but you can't take me out of my shoes.

"Oh my God... I'm married."

"Last night Steve and I held hands for an hour and a half watching... the fire. He was looking into my eyes; I was looking for the remote."

"I'm in the woods in my negligee and my cell phone only has two bars left. HELP!"

Charlotte : Big is in town?
Carrie : Yeah, he's here for a little heart thing.
Miranda : What, is he on the wait list to get one?

"I once was broken up with by a guy's doorman. 'I'm sorry Ms. Hobbes, Jonathan won't be coming down. Ever.'"

Charlotte : Did I ever tell you I was a cheerleader?
Miranda : No, because you knew I would mock you endlessly.

Charlotte : What kind of diet book are you looking for?
Miranda : I don't know. Something with a title like How to Lose That Baby Fat by Sitting On Your Ass.

Here's my polyvore for Miranda. When I was researching pictures for Miranda, like I said, I realized how far she's come since the early days of the show. For example.....

Oh, and have you seen the 80s flashback pictures of her from the new movie?

Isn't it priceless??

Ok, for real, here's the polyvore....

I love the style that Patricia Field gave Miranda in the first movie, it was so pulled together, professional, yet fashion-forward. Perfect for the working mama of sweet Brady.

Anyone out there who relates to Miranda? Tell me about your favorite Miranda moment!
Happy Miranda Day!

PS: My precious friend Trish who writes Pink Preppy Lilly Lover is having the most wonderful Lilly giveaway over at her place! You should probably go there RIGHT NOW and enter!

I didn't realize how funny some of her one-liners were!! I laughed at the quotes you found, too!

I honestly think I am all Samantha/Charlotte...but I think I may have a little Miranda in me! :)

Super photos of Miranda. Yes, she has definitely had her fugly moments, but when she's on it, she's got it! I would die to have her long neck! Great post! :)

I am totally a Miranda! I love Carrie and her clothes, but you're so right, Miranda started looking much better. I love her swim suit in the first movie!

Rhianna said...

Yes, my favorite lines are always the ones of Miranda.

Breezer said...

Ahhh I love your blog! SO glad I found it. I love your SATC style series.

I'm doing a SATC series this week too, but after featuring just a couple photos of the girls, I'm posting my daily outfit, inspired by their looks. Check it out if you have a chance!

Taryn said...

That polyvore is definately Miranda! Cute heels!

Claire Kiefer said...

Oh man, I love it, I love this post, I love all the girls, and I love the new movie, which I got to see on Monday! So exciting. Just wait till you see Miranda's dress at the "big event" at the beginning of the movie. STUNNING! And as for that first picture you posted . . . omg, those gold glitter Louboutins appear in the opening scene, and they're so freaking amazing they made my heart skip a beat!

p.s. my favorite Miranda moment is when she and Steve get back together in the laundry room at Brady's first bday party. So sweet.

Meghan said...

I am so loving your SATC fashion posts:) I totally agree - Miranda has made a VAST improvement in fashion! And I agree with Claire - my favorite moment is when Miranda professes her love for Steve at the birthday party. OR when she explains that she had mercy sex with him:)

S said...

Love Miranda, but I am more of a Charlotte fan. I am loving your Ode to STC :)

brooke said...

awww miranda has always been my favorite next to carrie (i think carrie's everyone's fav). we actually have a LOT in common. mostly because of our synicism. i used to be ashamed of being most like her but luckily she grew into her style and looks.

and yes her quotes are by far some of the best. i will always remember her quotes on children, even after she had brady. sounded just like me!

meredith said...

omg, my favorite:

Charlotte : Did I ever tell you I was a cheerleader?
Miranda : No, because you knew I would mock you endlessly.

bahahahah.. love dry sarcasm!

Venassa said...

Miranda is my favorite. I love her cute moments with Steve, and all her sarcasm. Sadly no favorite moments come to mind.
