Meaning Behind Carrie Bradshaw Flower Pin In SATC

Carrie’s eye-catching blossom first appeared in Season 3, Episode 2, following her second break-up with Big. (That time, she wore the brooch pinned to her go-to fur coat from the era.) According to The New York Daily News, its addition into her wardrobe was meant to symbolize the arrival of spring, as well as the possibility of new love, which makes sense given Season 3’s story line that saw her short-lived relationship with The Politician, aka Bill Kelley (John Slattery). They, of course, didn’t work out, but that didn’t stop Carrie from continuing her search, eventually meeting Aidan Shaw (John Corbett). Throughout the couple’s honeymoon period, similar flower pins are a regular accessory for Carrie.
