Carrie Bradshaw Collaborations

SJP : What shoe dreams are made of ...

Saturday, March 22, 2014 Teresa Espinoza

Do you remember Carrie Bradshaw being mugged of her beloved Manolo Blahnik’s down a New York City Street? Or when Carrie had her shoes unexpectedly snatched at a friend’s baby shower? What about when she lost her “choo” trying to catch the ferry? Shoes go hand in hand when speaking about Carrie Bradshaw. The “mother” to all of us shoe addicts if you will. So when the news came out that Sarah Jessica Parker was designing a shoe collection, it seemed like all of our shoe prayers had been answered!

It’s rare that you get to see your real life fashion icon in person, much less standing about a foot away from you! For this lucky girl, it became reality when I got the opportunity to cover Sarah Jessica Parker’s shoe collection at Nordstrom! Sarah Jessica made a stop to the Michigan Avenue Nordstrom location where she met with media and spent time signing customers SJP’s. And for this shoe aficionado and Carrie Bradshaw fan, this collection was the opportunity to see the woman that sparked so much of her love of fashion!

Sarah Jessica Parker teamed up with business partner and Manolo Blahnik USA President George Malkemus to create her first long awaited collection. The SJP collection is a Nordstrom-exclusive collection of shoes, handbags and even a coat! The beautiful shoes from this collection were handcrafted in Italy and are of amazing quality! Shoes Carrie Bradshaw would max her credit card out for! The collection was designed in various silhouettes and styles to fit every woman’s personality. However, they all maintained one attribute, the classic single sole; A timeless style that fits a wide range of women. Sarah Jessica pulled inspiration from her childhood as seen in the grosgrain ribbon detail on each shoe, legendary designer Maud Frizon and of course, the legendary character on Sex and the City, Carrie Bradshaw. As an ode to her inspirations she named one shoe “Maud” and of course another “Carrie”. For all of us that love shoes this collection is a dream. Exactly what our spring closet’s needed this season!

The shoe prices range from $195 to just under $500, bags range from $245 to $375 and the trench is $495.  Don’t forget that the collection is available exclusively at Nordstrom stores! Make sure to get your pair here and check out my favorites below!
