FINALLY. Ten years after the end of ‘Sex and the City’ (can you BELIEVE it’s been that long?), Sarah Jessica Parker, who’s SATC alter-ego, Carrie Bradshaw, was a Manolo Blahnik fanatic, is launching her own footwear line called the SJP Collection (she posted an Instagram pic of herself about to appear on ‘Opening Bell’ to talk about her shoe line). I’m amazed it took Sarah a decade to do it. She’s long been known for her chic style. So what happened? Sarah explained to USA Today:
I won’t sell a shoe to someone that isn’t well-made or timeless. I feel honor-bound to a large group of women. I am overly cognizant and aware that I would not have this opportunity if it were not for the commitment those women made to me over the years. I have no interest in selling them a bill of goods or convincing them to buy something I would not wear myself.”
And you might have a shot at affording this line. High end shoes can cost at least $1000, many more than that. Jessica’s footwear line has shoes ranging from $195 up to $500. That’s not too bad, right? Even better, Sarah says the shoes are actually comfortable. She used the Tanny shoe, named for ballerina Tanaquil LeClercq, to explain:
It’s how a shoe is made that usually dictates comfort. You can see how nice it feels. There’s really nice padding and it makes such a big difference. They’re all made in Italy.”
The SJP Collection also features handbags and a trench coat. It’s available at Nordstrom.com as well as select stores starting tomorrow, Februay 28. You can check out the SJP collection on instagram. Just in time to get a jump on spring shopping, right?
