You’d think that as someone who plays a woman with such a shoe addiction as Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City knows her way around a pair of high heels.
You’d be right.
I recently stumbled upon Sarah Jessica Parker’s shoe collection for Nordstroms and just had to share a few favourites with you. The designs are classic but with a fresh colour twist that makes them fabulous modern basics.
The “Carrie” | $419CAD | Nordstroms
How do you take a classic, conservative shoe shape and make it sexy? Add more heel, slim down the strap and show a little peekaboo toe action. I think we’ve all seen many versions of this shoe but the thin stiletto heel and narrow strap here does for a woman’s feet like a thin silk spaghetti strap cami does for a woman’s shoulders. It’s a shoe with a strong personality but oh so alluring.
The “Bobbie” | $430CAD | Nordstroms
The D’orsay shoe is one of my favourite designs. It’s chic, leg lengthening cut is universally flattering and looks stylish at any heel height. What caught my attention with the “Bobbie” here is it’s spring ready mint suede and the little scalloped detail that makes this sandal a playful addition to a pretty floral dress or even a pair of light wash skinnies.
Colourful, youthful and just plain fun, I think these really epitomize the summer shoe for a classic girl. The interwoven straps in splashes of turquoise, coral and lemon meringue on a purple heel would make this a great pairing with everything in your summer wardrobe. I can just imagine the woman in these shoes dancing away on an outdoor patio on a warm July evening.
By the looks of it, I am really pleasantly surprised by this elegant yet colourful collection by SJP. This is definitely one for us classic girls who want a little something different without going into the platform shoe category, which to be frank was never much of my style. Vancouver is set to open it’s first Nordstroms soon and I’ve got my toes crossed that they’ll bring these over with them.
