The BonBon Rose Girls SATC 2 Event Recap…NO movie spoilers here!!

Have you entered our hand mixer giveaway yet? Get in on that $75 value action!

So, Saturday night we got all dolled up, Meg in Anthro and Kristin in Lilly Pulitzer, and went to see the fab four on the big screen once again. I’m not going to get into a long drawn out review, I’m just going to say that I didn’t go in expecting the world. I went expecting to see my girls and some fabulous fashion. In that respect, I was not disappointed. I, for one, was totally enamored with the Halston Heritage appearances.

I’ve been trying to dream up reasons why I NEED BOTH of the pieces above. Any ideas? HA! I can’t wait to see what SJP does with her new gig as chief creative officer!

So, all in all, the flick was a fun romp as it always is when the four of them are on the screen together and I had a blast…haters be darned.

The lady in white is the gorgeous Wendy from Madras and Pearls

Ok, that being said…We started our evening with cocktails, apps and cupcakes (made by my lovely pastry school graduate friend Janine) at a local Tampa bar called The Green Iguana. After we noshed, we passed out goody bags, handed out some door prizes and headed off to see the show. It was a perfectly lovely estrogen filled event and I hope we get to have another one sooner rather than later!

p.s. If you haven’t checked out my Shoptopia posts lately you can see them all here if you’re so inclined! Just go to “my lists” and you’ll see what I’ve been up to…Like this list of uber bright, citrus hued goodies for instance.

  7. Orange it Lovely says

    I went to see it with my gf last week and we loved it too.. it was just fun! No expectations.
    I love that you girls did this!
    The dresses are killer cute!!!!

  8. Maddy says

    Both your gals are dressed to the nines!! Wish I could've joined in the fun! The Halston number is gorgeous! Perhaps a summer cocktail party/ wedding??

  9. Amanda @ Serenity Now says

    How much fun!! I went with 3 of my girlfriends and we had a blast. 🙂 A few of the costumes were a little out there, but I loved the Halston. 🙂

  10. Ms. Givens says

    I love both of those dresses, especially the colors.
    I have never watched the series but its sounds like you and your friends now how to do it right.

  11. passport in my pocket says

    you ladies looked fabulous! sounds like a great time to me. I STILL haven't seen it yet! I went and saw Prince of Persia over the weekend – um, fail.

  12. sara says

    How fun, looks like you all had a blast! I can't wait to see it with my girlfriends this Friday – despite the horrible reviews!

  13. Karisa Tells All says

    That looks like a fun party! My friends and I went to the midnight show and then to IHOP for pancakes afterward. We pretended like we were at brunch like the girls do, and not an IHOP at 3 AM haha

  14. Cara says

    Looks like you had a great time! I am thinking of buying the green Halston for a friend's September wedding…hmmmm…


  15. Coco says

    I am LOVING both of y'alls dresses!!!

    Im going tomorrow for the movie. I haven't heard good things but if it's fun, I will love it!

  16. Natasha says

    I couldn't agree more about the Halton Heritage (SWOON!) The movie, I thought, was hilarious and definitely entertaining… and the fashion??? Patricia Fields outdid herself yet again!

  17. Marie Z. says

    Sounds like you enjoyed a fabulous evening! I, too, LOVED all the Halston Heritage dresses Carrie wore!

  18. Salt says

    So much fun, you guys! I'm probably going to have to fly solo when I go to see it (unless I can convince hubs, which I don't really see happening).

    That first purple dress = LOVE.

  19. Jenni says

    Look how beautiful the BonBonRose Girls look with their mamas and sister! Those were my favorite photos! I love that you got so glamorous just to go see the movie!

  20. Jen says

    Aw, you guys are so cute! I'm jealous of your SATC night in the Florida sun!

    Kristin, love your Lily Pulitzer! So my style.

    And I'm with you Megan on SJP's coral maxi dress! Want it. ASAP.

  21. McKenzie says

    How fun!! The fashion had me drooling for the whole 2 and a half hours, even though my best friend and I went to the late show in our pajamas… 🙂

  22. Kinsey Michaels says

    Aww what a cute way to celebrate! And I'm glad the fashion did not disappoint. I hope the plot was good too, but I guess I'll have to wait and see 😉

  23. Jules says

    You look great in your Lilly dress and I adore the group pic of everyone. Your little sis is working it and totally channeling Carrie.

    I think you need both of those dresses, especially the blue one for a special date night with the hubs.

    I cannot believe that I missed out on seeing this movie over the weekend. That was a major fail on my part. The event that you ladies put together sounds fabulous and I wish I lived in Florida and could have been there.

  24. Piper Jacquelyn says

    Cute dresses, ladies! You all look the part & it sounds like you had a great time – I've yet to see the movie myself, but am mostly looking forward to the fashion as well!

  25. Nilsa @ SoMi Speaks says

    I've never been into SATC (gasp), but I've been enjoying the many posts devoted to real-people fashion (not to be confused with movie star fashion) when it comes to going to the movie. =)

  26. Dancing Branflake says

    This looked like such a fun night! I love the pictures of your families. Thank you for sharing this with us all.

  27. Traci says

    I HEART those Halston dresses!!!Especially, the blue one. I so wish I was in Tampa! Looks like y'all had a blast!

  28. CDS says

    I'm going to go see it with friends on Saturday night. can't wait! Looks like you all had a really nice time. Hoorah!

  29. carma says

    It appears you are sitting on an invisible stool in the second group pic 😀 Nice to hear you enjoyed it. Maybe your sweet husband will read your blog and surprise you with one of those Halston dresses..

    Your 'lil sis is quite the fashionista too!

  30. Cafe Fashionista says

    Ah, I LOVE the two of you for getting all dolled up with your friends and family to see the movie. This truly sounds like the most spectacular evening EVER; and, of course, you both look gorgeous – as per usual! 🙂

  31. Marcie says

    How fun! You look great. Can she please end up with Aiden!!?? I haven't seen it yet, but I am ready to see Aiden. 😉


  32. Melanie's Randomness says

    You guys look fabulous!! I loved the movie & those Singer piecs on Carrie were gorgeous!! =)

  33. KLZ says

    I want both YOUR dresses and that little blue number Carrie is sporting.

    Also, I know this is super obnoxious, but advice for busty girls looking for summer dresses under $50? I can't wear those little spaghetti strap or halter numbers with a bra and I am jonesing for some cute dresses bad. Is there a post I may have overlooked already?

  34. OneCraftyFox says

    You girls look gorgeous!! Love any excuse to get dolled up and surround myself with beautiful fashion 😉

  35. Fifi Flowers says

    How FUN! I went with my mom for a morning matinee and then lunch with Cosmos… not as much FUN as going opening night… SATC 3 it's back to OPENING NIGHT dressing up and going with a BIG group including my mom!

  36. Rock'n Roll Ballerina says

    Sounds like a great time;) And you ladies looked great!
    I was going to the premiere here in Oslo, but time is not on my side these days, so hopefully a day soon;) And I love the Halston H. dresses as well! Have a lovely week!

  37. lessonsinlifeandlight says

    How funny! My most recent post was a little SATC re-cap as well! I TOTALLY agree with what you said about expectations. I went in expecting to see my girls looking fab and I did! WIN!

  38. joelle van dyne says

    you both look so chic in your outfits for the movie! i still haven't seen it, but definitely will soon. i'm totally drooling over the halston dresses from the movie stills you posted. ~joelle

  39. junghwa by amy stewart says

    I saw that Anthro dress a while ago, but it sold out before I could get my hands on it. I love it!

  40. Jaime @ La vie...J'aime says

    You all look so fabulous! I thought the movie was ok…really loved the first movie. Samantha's one liners never fail though 🙂

  41. Tiffany says

    this sounds like the best time ever…seriously. i had a similar outing planned with my girlfriends for SATC 2 but they fell through. boo! i can't wait to see it though–i love those ladies!

  42. Helena - A Diary of Lovely says

    oooh what a fun afternoon!!!
    I loved all the Halston dresses, the orange one of my faves!! Also loved the white one 🙂

  43. Katie says

    you girls are ADORABLE! looks like you did it up RIGHT!!!

    and OOOO the halston dresses. SWO-OOOOON!!! those were 2 of my favs!!!

    i too didn't go in expecting movie making genius and i too LOVED it!!!

  44. The Preppy Princess says

    Love this post Miss BonBon, and adore all the photos of those fab female bloggers! It is so cool to see everyone enjoying SATC2 parties.

    Now I am off to Shoptopia, as that is all new to me! (Why is it I expect I'll be enjoying myself as I explore said site?!)

    Sending you a smile,

  45. Small Burst says

    You all look so lovely. What fun do see this flick with a bunch of fashionistas. Thanks for stopping by to visit with me. I'm so glad you did so I could find your lovely blog.

  46. Diana Mieczan says

    I have to have that Halston dress this summer…Its amazing and you look stunning my darling! It all sounds like so much fun…:)
    Have a wonderful day:)

  47. PhotoPuddle says

    How fabulous. Can't wait to see the SATC2 film this weekend.

    And thanks for visiting my blog and for your lovely comments.

  48. Christen says

    Seriously, both of you look amazing. I love your dresses! And the event looks like loads of fun. Wish I could have joined in! I did see SATC2 while I was in Miami and I have to agree… I went in wanting over-the-top fashion and over-the-top fashion is what I got 🙂

  49. Tracie says

    All of you looked fabulous! I haven't seen the movie yet but I'm going to. And my expectations are the same as yours were so I'm not going to have a huge letdown.


    Oh how adorable do you all look!!! Thx for not spoiling it…I STILL haven't had a chance to see it!

    Hope you're having a great week 🙂

  51. Sandy a la Mode says

    you've just reminded me that i need to go see this movie!! i can't believe i forgot!!! i'm going to go with some girl friends next weekend during my friend's bachelorette party weekend!!

  52. blueviolet says

    I think you went in with the perfect attitude. I'm going to follow your lead, although it sounds like from the reviews that I have to.)

  53. one sydney road says

    You all look so fabulous! What a fun evening that looks like – is it wrong to be a bit envious and want to be there with you? :)! You all are rockin'!

  54. Valerie says

    Yes, that's exactly how I felt about the movie. I didn't have high expectations of the plot, just went into it excited to see the girls and their outfits and it came through for me on those things. You girls look great and it sounds like a really fun night!


  55. Kristen says

    I LOVE your dress here Kristin!! maybe because it definitely worked with the vibe of the movie 🙂 I didn't expect much from the plot, but adored the scenery, the clothes, and (of course) the shoes. I found a recipe for *wait for it* cosmo cupcakes. I'm going to try my own version of them this weekend, and post the results.


  56. Rhiannon Nicole says

    You look like you had such a perfect girls night out! And soo awesome your ma joined you!! 🙂 And cupcakes? and treat bags?! I am officially jealous!! XO

  57. siovhan says

    y'all look GORGEOUS. and i love your sister's head wrap. wow. what a fabulous bunch. i hope it was utterly STELLAR.

  58. Michelle says

    This is the cutest thing I have ever seen. Crone, indeed–Kristin you are glowing and look gorgeous! I can't believe you got cupcakes by a real pastry chef…lucky duck…

  59. Nicole Feliciano says

    Who cares about the NYTimes review. I'm still going to see it. Love the fashions from Halston too.

  60. molly YEH! says

    that looks lovely!! i'm so jealous of your awesome party and dresses!!!!

    …and i do believe that i am the hundredth comment! wooooo

  61. molly YEH! says

    that looks lovely!! i'm so jealous of your awesome party and dresses!!!!

    …and i do believe that i am the hundredth comment! wooooo

  62. Estelle says

    That looks like a fabulous night. I can't wait to see the movie. And you guys all look beautiful and dolled up!

  63. Miss Caitlin S. says

    Cute! You guys look like you had a blast and that's what SATC is all about… I'm sorry and not to go against you but I do have to say that I think the critiques are merited for this movie- I am obsessed with SATC but I think they absolutely got lazy on us (the girls would never choose "I am Woman" to sing- c'mon now!!!) but I did enjoy aspects of it for sure and Patricia Fields never disappoints. Cute post, you guys are all so pretty.

  64. FashionJazz says

    U guys all look stunning and it looks like you had a fab time! I cant wait to see SATC this wknd xx

  65. Annie Spandex says

    Yeah, something got lost with the writing in these movies, kind of like the last season but worse. However, I like your optimism. And I think I'm this much to a Halston obsession. 😉

  66. Betty says

    Fab stuff here, as usual!!
    I'm soo glad that you all had such a fun time :o)
    Big hugs!
    B xx

  67. Becolorful says

    Ahhhh. My friends and I got together for a SATC party also. So fun to have a reason to get together with the girls and get all dressed up. I was only sad that it wasn't in NYC. I felt like one of my favorite characters was MIA. 🙂

    Your pictures look so fun and yes that blue Halston is enough to make the world stop spinning.

  68. The Lil Bee says

    I've heard such bad reviews, but you know, of course, that I still have to see it. I think SJP joining forces with Halston Heritage was a very smart move on their part…I want the entire collection now!

  69. Perfectly Imperfect says

    looks like a fun girls nite! I am still dying to see this movie.. I don't care about the bad reviews!
