Men I may not know, but shoes — shoes I know. – Carrie Bradshaw
We all know Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw, the shoe-obsessed star of Sex and the City. So it only seems natural that Sarah herself would create her own shoe line. In my opinion, ten years too late, but better late than never! (Sex and the City ended in 2004. Feel old.) Her shoe line, appropriately named SJP, is available exclusively at Nordstrom (online and select stores) starting tomorrow, February 28th. Sarah collaborated with George Malkemus, CEO of Manolo Blahnik (Carrie’s brand of choice), to create 25 gorgeous, Italian-made styles with prices ranging from $195-$500. So, not cheap, but I wouldn’t expect them to be. Only the best from Carrie.
Carrie’s shoe closet was every girls fantasy, and Carrie herself was a big influence on Sarah. “I’m privileged that I played her. I was exposed to so many beautiful shoes and to how they’re made. That role really cemented my love.” She even has a style named Carrie (which might be my fave in the line), and said that it is an ode to her. “It’s a strong shoe that can be worn for day and night.”
