Have the Best Sex (and the City) Party

satc-premiere.jpgTomorrow hostesses around the world will be trying to outdo themselves in putting together the partay of the season (okay, maybe the week). If you want your friends rhapsodizing over your Sex and the City fete as well as the movie, here are a few themes you can implement:

Louis Vuitton Chain Leopard Shoes1. A Designer Shoe Swap
Everyone has to bring a pair. It shouldn’t matter if the shoes have been gently worn, as long as they’re still walkable, and have a pedigree (that is, no more than 5 times, at the most; the better the shoe, the more uncomfortable the fit, so I’m guessing most will have never been used more than once anyway) Still with the price tag and the original box would be even better.

Run it like a key swap: Put one shoe of each pair in a big basket, then blindfold each guest who draws. May the best woman win…

2. An Old Boyfriend Swap
Same rules: everyone brings along an old boyfriend. In regard to his “pedigree,” she must be able to vouch for his, er, prowess. As for his price tag, a verifiable, substantial bank account will do. Put his house key in the basket, blindfold your gal pals, and draw! Again, may the best woman win…
