We all know her. We all love her. We all owe our justification for a fresh pair of Manolo Blahniks to her. Carrie Bradshaw from Sex And The City. Sure, she is a fictional character, but the monologues she declared every week spoke to the generation. As Carrie lived an independent, single life in New York City exploring herself through writing, romantic trysts, #squadgoals with her gal pals Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda, and — of course — fashion, she hit a vein in retrospective analysis in the stereotypical relationships women face.
Carrie took on New York City in the borough of Manhattan in a tiny brownstone on the Upper East Side. She visits all the local NYC haunts, with her fair share of coffee shops, bars, and swanky restaurants where you need to know somebody who knows somebody!
So, where then, does Houston fit it? Carrie made space and changed the narrative that a woman was supposed to hit cultural milestones by a certain age. A women should be married by 30, buy a house, and have a baby — all while falling into the Alice in Wonderland spirals to her family and husband. Carrie fought back. So beckon the familiar Carrie, and create your own story in Houston (cue Sex And The City theme song).
Carrie-Approved Houston Neighborhoods
