We’re a little bit jealous

Carrie Bradshaw went through so many outfits and shoes (including those Christian Louboutin ones she had to pay for), it’s impossible to keep count.

But the one thing Carrie always, always wore is her iconic ‘Carrie’ necklace - or her ‘ghetto gold’ as she put it.

Even though it only cost a few dollars, it was one of Carrie’s most prized possessions because she got it while out shopping with her girls in New York and it symbolises her friendship and single girl days.

Well you’ll be happy to hear it’s just as sentimental to Sarah Jessica Parker, who still has it with her.

She spoke at New York Magazine’s Vulture Festival that even though she kept 95% of the clothes she wore on the show (lucky thing), that necklace is what she values most.

She said, ‘I have the 'Carrie' necklace still. I love it, and it's tucked away somewhere safe.’

And in a spooky case of reality imitating art, SJP also almost lost it on the set of one of the SATC movies, like Carrie did in Paris.

‘I wish I could play that scene again, because now that I've lived through it, I'd do a much better job,’ she said.

Don’t worry, she did find it in the end, phew!

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
