I can’t believe how long it’s been since my last blog post. Feels like yesterday, but also like it’s been 25 years. COVID, lockdowns, social distancing, working from home…it’s such a blur. I’ve been meaning to write so many posts, but work, family, and sanity took precedence. But here I am to write about something super cute that I’ve wanted to buy for a very long time…since the first time I saw it on Sex and the City when it first aired, but somehow never actually pulled the trigger for a variety of reasons. So when oNecklace reached out, my answer was an enthusiastic yes, and a couple of weeks later a beautiful dainty necklace arrived at my door.
With Connel’s Chain getting its own Instagram account, I’m surprised there isn’t one dedicated to Carrie’s Necklace, because it was iconic. Layered or worn on its own, with tank tops, gowns, or underwear, lost on the floor of a Dior boutique, ever-present, but not at all flashy, it was a steady presence on the show, and something I’ve always coveted. As someone with an unusual name, who could never get a name keychain at an amusement park, the Carrie necklace spoke to me in so many ways. But for whatever reason, I thought it wouldn’t be cool to copy Carrie, or whatever, but the truth is, now that I have it, I never want to take it off. When I excitedly told my husband about my new fave necklace, he was a little sad that I’d never told him about it…it certainly would’ve earned him some brownie points – a gift that’s personalized and classic at the same time? Yes, please!
I had to turn off comments on the blog due to way too much spam, but feel free to reach out to me on Instagram, and share your thoughts on the ubiquitous name necklace. Do you love them, or is it not for you? And also, if you’re still reading, thanks for sticking around, or returning, or whatever…I actually missed this a lot, and will try to do it more often…if the pandemic doesn’t get in the way.
