Carrie is nervous to go back to school because her mother died three months ago, and everyone is staring at her like she's a freak. She can't find her mom's purse that she inherited, so her dad allows her in Mom's sacred closet and gives her some sunglasses. Was her mother Anna Wintour? Anyway, Carrie puts them on, and they give her the courage to wear a lavender hoodie. This seemed awfully boring, until I remembered that it's only the pilot, and City Carrie has to have SOME room to influence Country Carrie.
