Appropriate because I am a Marnie type in a CHarlie job…
Please note that I am NOT Marnie- we should not prescribe to the preconceived ideas that HBO has placed on us to be a certain perosn in our freind group.
I am also NOT Carrie. I would have SOOOO stayed with Aidan.
After spending some time in New York now for 6 years (with a one year mini hiatus in Madrid), I have noticed a certain pension for girls to emulate the proto New York Girl. They want that walking on air style of life that followed Audrey Hepburn around, particularly one of her more iconic roles- Holly Golightly. I have a very legitimate question- Why? Holly is at times annoying, lacks any agency, and constantly puts herself in danger. She promises a life of non stop partying that in the book was a warning, not an ode. Even the movie plays a cautionary tale if you read it the right way. She doesn’t want to be caught and eventually she is, like a common house cat. I ask again: Why follow the cult of Holly?
And so follows a word vomit association post.
