Ever since Carrie first showed off her name necklace in Sex and the City, we’ve been a world enthralled. Remember that scene where she thought she’d lost it forever? Did you feel an irrational sense of tragedy/anxiety about this?
I may only speak for myself when I say that there’s something distinctly covet-able about what has since come to be known as the ‘Carrie necklace’. I find myself naturally drawn to things that are a bit different, slightly more unique (even though it’s quite often mass produced anyway!), thus my love for brands like Tatty Devine and Irregular Choice. It’s like a secret that you get to show off. Miniature bits of artwork that you can wear.
With a name necklace there’s always the risk that some boozy chav on a night out will end up addressing you, hoping to impress you with his ability to read, but then, that may be a risk that you’ll be willing to take.
