Continuity mistake: When Carrie is walking by Dior, there's some very weird editing: she walks by the window shop, passes by Dior's golden dress, then angle suddenly cuts to Carrie meters behind, crossing the street meters away from Dior, repeating her previous walk. Then another cut and she is magically next to the golden dress again.

To market, to market - S6-E1

Plot hole: In this episode Carrie runs into Aidan, who now has what looks to be about a 6 month old baby (Tate). This doesn't seem possible, as Carrie and Aidan would have only broken up about a year ago, and Miranda was around 6 months pregnant when they broke up. Brady is only about 5 months old at this point in the series, leaving Aidan only roughly 8 months to have this baby - but Aidan lay in bed for about a month and then dated Nina Katz for awhile. Timeline just doesn't seem to fit.
