Uploaded by SpacesTV on 26.11.2012

ERIKA STORM WASSER: Have you ever been watching a TV show
and you see the character, and then you see where they live
and you just go, yeah, you don't live there.
And that is why we are going to profile sitcom apartments
and find their real-life character counterparts, and
see how people actually live.
It's a new segment we're doing called "Only In Reel Life."
If you were alive in the 2000s and you remember Carrie
Bradshaw from "Sex and the City" and her gorgeous,
super-cute junior one-bedroom, supposedly steps off of
Madison Avenue, huge living room, separate kitchen,
hallways of closets.
And she was a freelance writer and a weekly dating columnist
for a daily newspaper, which is why I'm here with the real
real-life Carrie Bradshaw, the lovely, the
talented Miss Nora Bass.
Nice to meet you.
OK, so tell me about Vixely.
NORA BASS: We focus on women's core topic of sex, and dating,
relationships, and we sort of look at ourselves as a "Sex
and the City" for the future, on the iPad.
ERIKA STORM WASSER: I like it. "Sex and the City" 2.0.
NORA BASS: Yeah, we're--
yes, exactly.
ERIKA STORM WASSER: We have Carrie on the
wall inspiring us.
So Carrie lived in a junior one-bedroom, you live--
NORA BASS: In a two-bedroom apartment with my roommate.
So this is, first and foremost, is
actually our office.
This is where the Vixely team meets and works, and writes.
And then this is also where we live.
Let me show you around.
ERIKA STORM WASSER: Let's check out the living room.
You have the zebra going on, the white.
NORA BASS: A lot of this is artwork from my roommate, and
we have a painting here that we really love that's by a
Brooklyn artist, Harrison Fraley.
Oh, one of my favorite pieces in here is a painting by
Sherre Wilson Rae who's one of my mother's favorite artists.
ERIKA STORM WASSER: Tell me about this ghost table.
NORA BASS: Ghost table goes with a set of chairs as well,
by Philippe Starck.
There are things that are worth spending good money on
and design is definitely one of them.
It's all about mixing what you have with what
you can easily attain.
To the bedroom.
ERIKA STORM WASSER: To the bedroom.
NORA BASS: Let's go.
This is the bedroom.
NORA BASS: I do do a lot of writing here as well.
We've got Ralph Lauren, pillows and a mix of things
that are sort of fun and easy.
ERIKA STORM WASSER: I'm obsessed with your two-tiered
NORA BASS: Those are 1920s deco pieces.
This is where I work.
We do a lot of writing and for inspiration from some of our
favorite books.
ERIKA STORM WASSER: The one thing that everyone remembers
about Carrie's apartment is that crazy closet.
Tell me about yours.
NORA BASS: It's I don't think as extravagant as Carrie's.
I definitely have an eclectic style.
I have Ralph Lauren blazers and a Chloe bag.
One of my favorite pieces is this Elie Tahari leather
jacket just because I wear it all the time.
ERIKA STORM WASSER: Some vintage Louis Vuitton luggage.
NORA BASS: I've lived in London for a few years and
traveled in Paris extensively and so it's--
outside America you can get some great things.
ERIKA STORM WASSER: This is great.
NORA BASS: Thank you.
ERIKA STORM WASSER: But you know what is bigger than this
closet is your supposed outdoor space.
NORA BASS: That is true.

ERIKA STORM WASSER: OK, this is amazing.
NORA BASS: It's a fantastic outdoor space for sure.
ERIKA STORM WASSER: Your apartment is better than
Carrie Bradshaw's.
So maybe it is possible that Carrie Bradshaw lived that way
if this is the Vixely pad.
All that's missing is Mr. Big, or do you have a Mr. Big?
NORA BASS: I do have a Mr. Big.
ERIKA STORM WASSER: This girl has everything.
So now we know this is what real life looks like.
Carrie Bradshaw could have been living real life.
