Walk a mile in a pair of SJP’s stilettos? Well yes, we’d love to; thank you for asking.
From the grosgrain ribbons (nodding to the ribbons she tied in her hair as a little girl) to the flowers accents (that were inspired by her Sex and the City wardrobe), every intricate detail of Sara Jessica Parker‘s new shoe collection has a personal meaning behind it. Which only adds to the list of reasons why we’ve been waiting with bated breath to slip our toes into a pair of those oh-so-fabulous heels.
In fact, ever since our InStyle February cover girl teased us with the news that she was in the process of designing a collection last year, we’ve had our calendar marked for February 28, because today is the day that the SJP collection officially hits Nordstrom stores.
To really understand the scope of the collection, we thought it was only natural to spend an afternoon shopping for stilettos (and pumps, and espadrilles, and sandals) with the designer herself, during the opening of the SJP Collection Pop Up Shop in New York City. As she took us on a personal tour through her collection and helped us pick out the perfect pair to match our personality (note: she decided the “Carrie” T-strap pump was the no-brainer choice for us), Parker (above, in a Valentino dress, Fred Leighton pearls and a pair of her namesake shoes) talked candidly about the kind of woman her shoes really speak to, how it feels to finally have a collection, and why, oh why, we women are so obsessed with stilettos.
