“If you can only have one great love, then the city just may be mine. And I don’t want nobody talkin’ shit about my boyfriend.” – Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City
Are you more Carrie or Samantha? If you would choose Vogue over dinner, shoes over sex, and New York as your boyfriend, then you’re Carrie. But regardless of your answer, unless you’re Jessa Johansson, Sex and the City undoubtably influenced your sartorial choices over the last decade. Like Carrie, shoes are my addiction and I have no problem strutting down the streets of New York in heels nearly everyday. Though, very much unlike Carrie, I can’t afford to feed my addiction with monthly doses of Manolo Blahnick and Christian Louboutin. Sarah Jessica Parker’s latest shoe line at Nordstrom, on the other hand, is a much easier cost to swallow.
The SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker collection (made in Italy, no less) is a more affordable alternative to Carrie’s beloved shoe brands with prices ranging from $195 for flats to just under $500 for heels. The styles are very much in line with what Carrie Bradshaw and Sarah Jessica Parker would wear – classic, feminine, and sophisticated pumps, sandals, kitten heels, and the occasional comfy flat shoe (only worn for commuting, of course!). As you can guess, the line has been so popular that some sizes are already out of stock. It seems like my shoe size in particular is always the first to get sold out (I’ll leave it to you to guess what size that is). For now, scroll down to shop the collection for work, evening, wedding, and weekend. Let me know your favorites in the comments.
