The fickle world of trends didn't stop turning in 2004, and you certainly can't walk around this town in that oh-so-2004 Carrie-style necklace. In order to keep you living as glamorously today as the SATC ladies did then, we’ve thawed out notorious fashions and hot spots from the show and updated them to reflect the new NYC social order.

Magnolia Bakery

The backstory
When Carrie attempted to quit smoking cold turkey for Aidan, she replaced her nicotine fix with cupcakes from this famous bakery. (And, yes, it was already a trend when Carrie arrived, but the show and the cupcake haven are forever intertwined.)

Still sexy?
If standing in line for hours is what you call sexy.

The new hotness
Screw Pinkberry's long-ass line. Charlotte should go for the upscale fro-yo at Red Mango; we're figuring Carrie for more of a DessertTruck girl.


Sushi Samba and Tao

The backstory
Samantha threw her drink in Richard's face at this electric-colored sushi chain, and Carrie's jazzman took her on a date to Tao.

Still sexy?
Dining with fratboys in the West Village is not sexy.

The new hotness
Korea is the new Japan. And no one does Korean like David Chang. His new Momofuku Ko is one of the hottest seats in town. Samantha would also have a standing reservation at the impossible-to-enter, Graydon Carter–owned Waverly Inn.


Manolo Blahnik shoes

The backstory
Some famous Blahnik moments: Carrie gets mugged, but not before begging her mugger to let her keep the Blahniks; she finds a pair of Blahnik Mary Janes in the Vogue closet; she gets a pair of Manolos by registering at Blahnik for her marriage to herself; and of course, the last image of Carrie in the series finale is of her walking up Fifth Avenue with a Blahnik shopping bag.

Still sexy?
Maybe, but not as sexy as...

The new hotness
Christian Louboutin, whose heels you'll find on modern-day style icons like Angelina Jolie and Christina Aguilera. The shoes even come with their own Carrie-appropriate precious nickname: "Loubous." Visit the flagship store on the Upper East Side (941 Madison Ave between 74th and 75th Sts, 212-396-1884).


Bed

The backstory
This is where the girls go after Berger dumps Carrie via Post-it.

Still sexy?
No. It's closed.

The new hotness
Try the sizzling scene at 1 Oak (453 W 17th St between Ninth and Tenth Aves, 212-242-1111). Rumors circled around its opening for months. Only 250 people can get, in and Lindsay Lohan was rumored to have stolen a girl's mink coat here. What else do you want from an upscale club?


The “Carrie” necklace

The backstory
Carrie got it in season two, and soon after everyone wanted a necklace with her name engraved on it. Even after the trend died, we were saddened when she lost the keepsake after falling on her face in Paris…and filled with joy when she found it in the nook of her clutch during the series finale.

Still sexy?
About as sexy as a purse with your initials on it—anyone remember those?

The new hotness
Well, since we get our style sense from TV exclusively, we'd have to say it’s headbands like those worn on Gossip Girl. The styles at staceylapidus.com look like they were taken straight from Blair Waldorf's wardrobe.


Cosmopolitans

The backstory
Do we really need to explain this?

Still sexy?
No New York local could possibly order one with a straight face.

The new hotness
You'll find much trendier, not to mention tastier cocktails among the custom-crafted infusions and classic highballs at PDT, Death & Company or The Hideout.
