If you gave me a Sex and the City quote, I would be able to give you the episode name and season it was said in. I’ve been on the SATC tour in New York City twice (and going again in the spring!). And I nearly fainted when I received a personal pat on the back from SATC screenwriter/producer Cindy Chupack after I wrote an essay for Entertainment Weekly about how the series inspired me.
So you can only imagine my excitement when I heard that Carrie Diaries costume designer Eric Daman (who assisted the red-haired, sartorial legend Patricia Field on three seasons of SATC) was going to place wardrobe easter eggs in the prequel series debuting on The CW on January 14.
“I don’t want to give it all away, but there are things that are going to pop up where you’ll go ‘Oh that’s where the flower broach comes from’ or ‘that’s where the Manolos come from,’” Eric told EW of creating the teenaged “Carrie-ness” for starlet AnnaSophia Robb.
One of those subtle tributes to our heroine will be a little letter “C” necklace by Alex Woo — which you will see on AnnaSophia rock throughout TCD — meant as a nod to Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie nameplate necklace.
And if history has taught us anything, Carrie Bradshaw fashions typically spark frenzies. So prepare yourself for a initial-necklace-phenomenon in 2013 by getting yourself the same one worn on TV. Or, check out the much more affordable options I’ve listed at every price point below.
