TV Show Recaps

The Best Bags from And Just Like That… Season 2, Episode 9

The Sex and the City sequel is finally getting its footing. Will it get renewed for a third season?

The one storyline all fans of Sex and the City have been curiously waiting for is finally taking shape: will Lily, Charlotte and Harry’s daughter, and Brady, Miranda and Steve’s son, actually hook up?

Seeing best friends Charlotte and Miranda deal with the possibility of their own children getting together is pretty hilarious and certainly the most entertaining portion of this week’s And Just Like That… episode. But there’s much more to discuss: Nya’s foray into the online dating world (fun fact: the character’s reduced screen time is directly related to actress Karen Pittman’s commitments to Apple TV+’s The Morning Show), Carrie’s decision to finally sell her apartment, her relationship with Aidan and (spoiler alert!) Lisa’s pregnancy news.

Even more exciting, perhaps, is the slew of purses that made an appearance throughout this week’s installment—from beautiful, classic handbags to more eclectic choices that certainly tickle our fancy.

Mansur Gavriel Cloud Clutch

Seema—a fan of high-end, hard-to-find purses—surprises us with the Mansur Gavriel cloud clutch, which she wears while showing an apartment to her new celebrity client (and lover) alongside the one and only Ryan Serhant of Million Dollar Listing fame. How great was his cameo?

Fendi Peekaboo

We’ve lost count of the many Peekaboos that made appearances on the show this year alone, but we’re particularly into this brown one that Seema wears to dinner with Aidan, Carrie, and her new lover, Ravi.

Geranium Printed Alibi Cube by Oscar de la Renta

Carrie takes her pals to see the new apartment that she’s looking to buy by Gramercy Park, and her to-be abode isn’t the only striking portion of the scene: all the women are decked out, looking absolutely fabulous, each one reminding us why the show has always spurred conversations about fashion.

Charlotte opts for a dramatically sleeved Oscar de la Renta midi dress, which she pairs with a bag of the same print, the designer’s geranium printed alibi cube.

Fendi Peekaboo

What else can we say about the Fendi Peekaboo? Dare we say Charlotte, who is seen carrying her black version of the product while at Chipotle with Miranda, may be the brand’s biggest fan?

Twister Terry Bag by JW Anderson

The color-blocking master, Lisa, proves her dexterity at the practice again, this time while shopping up at her husband’s party in an awesome bright pink suit that she matches with a turquoise pussy bow blouse and JW Anderson’s bag of the same color. Lisa’s jewelry is also super on point.

Vintage Prada Bag

We haven’t seen many Prada bags throughout the season, which is unfortunate given the company’s beautiful craftsmanship. Alas, the costume designers opted for this vintage brown number when dressing Lisette, Carrie’s neighbor. We’ll be honest here: we aren’t fans of her whole ensemble, but the bag certainly caught our attention.

The bags in this season seem a lot better than the show, based on summaries I’ve read online. I can’t bring myself to watch this season — the first one killed SATC for me!

So I watch the show in the background when I’m doing some work – like emails or something not too intense! It’s a fun background show for me, but I can say it doesn’t get my undivided attention!

Let’s hope this show gets cancelled so they finally stop ruining the legacy of the original series.

Hi! Do we know Miranda’s bag from the apartment scene? Golden yellow with hand compartment? Thanks!

Does anyone know the bag the lady who complained about the dumplings “being too good to be kosher” with the ornate gold top handle connector hardware.
