But, I have a good excuse! My Friday evening was spent so posh-ily sipping vodka tonics
with in the vicinity of movie stars. Like Sarah Jessica Parker! SJP!
Friday night D and I went to the Miami International Film Festival’s cast reunion and screening of Miami Rhapsody (1995). The movie was shown at the Tower Theater in Little Havana where cast members, including SJP, Jeremy Piven and Carla Gugino, along with writer/director David Frankel talked a bit about the movie and answered audience questions.

An after-party was held just down the road from our house (how convenient of them!) at the Coral Gables Country Club.
They did a great job with the party!

Just a note here – SJP had on a beautiful bling-y bow necklace that you can almost see in my photos at the top of this post. It was gorgeous! If you google this event, some photos have her wearing it and others don’t. Given my obsession with bows, it made me love her a little more…
I didn’t get to meet SJP – there was a VIP section, with ropes and all, and I didn’t want to call in a favor and be THAT annoying girl to get in. It’s fine though because we’ve already worked together. 🙂 (My sister and I, D’s mom and a few of her friends got to be extras on one of the final episodes of Sex and the City. It was so much fun!) I also think she was intimidated because I had better shoes than she did. Ha-ha! I definitely brought my footwear A-game:
It was super-fun though and SJP is adorable in person. I know that sounds weird because she is older than I am, but she is really very pretty in person, much more so than on-screen. Carla Gugino is really pretty too! If you haven’t seen Miami Rhapsody – you should! It is a funny movie and it was great to see it again.
