“I’ve spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!” – Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City
Sarah Jessica Parker will forever be associated with her on-screen character Carrie Bradshaw. The all-around style maven stole our hearts with her smart writing and made our closets cry with envy. Any fan of Sex and the City knows that Carrie is nothing if not a shoe horse—for six seasons we watched her prance around Manhattan in every conceivable style of pump, sandal, boot, and flat. Where she kept all that footwear in her West Village apartment is a mystery no one really cares about, but I for one can’t deny how much I wished Carrie’s sole magic would rub off on me. All those shoe-changes definitely had an effect on the already stylish Sarah Jessica Parker…with all the hundreds of pairs of shoes the actress has worn on and off camera she could be considered an expert on style, fit, cut, color, details, and quality. How ideal that SJP has teamed up with Nordstrom to create an exclusive collection of namesake shoes that draw inspiration from the styles and silhouettes she loves most!
Excited? With 25 styles to choose from you’re bound to find a shoe that fits (and then have the opportunity to buy it in multiple colors). My fave design detail is the pale pink grosgrain ribbon that hides the seam on the back of each pump—simple and sophisticated. And if shoes aren’t your thing (no shame, no shame) SJP also put her chic touch on a great clutch and trench coat. I think the well-rounded collection would make Carrie Bradshaw proud!
I’ve been going back and forth on which shoes are my favorite and I think the Fawn and Brigitte are the ones I most want to try. 26 Nordstrom stores across the country will have the SJP collection in stock (list here)…and the Nordstrom at Dallas’ Northpark Mall is lucky enough to be getting a personal appearance from Sarah Jessica this Sunday, March 9th (see the other locations she’ll be visiting here)! Even more exciting than the chance of seeing SJP, you can participate in a Pinterest pinning contest for a chance to win an SJP shoe wardrobe worth $2,000…the steps and rules are easy peasy and I for one got a little too excited thinking about the places I would go “in her shoes.” Swoon…
