What Would You Do For A Day In Carrie Bradshaw's Shoes?

Remember when you used to watch Sex and The City religiously with all your best girlfriends and a bottle of champagne? Remember when you thought to yourself "how does Carrie afford all those shoes with her writing job"? Remember thinking "why can't I BE her?". Well, now you can. Sort of. Lo and behold, Sarah Jessica Parker is collaborating with Manolo Blahnik to create her own line of shoes.

Take a moment to process this information.

Are you screaming yet? This is probably the greatest news since Big got Carrie a walk-in closet. Though the show ended back in 2004 and I was pre-pubscent at the time, it continues to live on and inspire women throughout the generations (even those who were too young to understand it). Who hasn't dreamed of having a group of best friends that fabulous? There's a reason that we're all still talking about Big and Carrie ten years later. Despite an attempt to recreate the show through Girls, offering a more realistic perspective with relatable 20 somethings, it doesn't have quite the same appeal as lavish 40 year olds with an envy-worthy lifestyle to boot (because somehow, being single and 40 becomes desirable in this show...). Though I occasionally call myself a Shoshanna, the reality is that I'm a Carrie through and through. And a bit of a Charlotte (who isn't?).

Until this very day, we all continue to fantasize about the characters on Sex and the City and there's nothing more emblematic than a pair of Manolos. So get yourself to a Nordstrom on February 28th because that is the date they hit the shelves. These shoes, under her label SJP, will be sold at $350 a pair, half the price of the regular Manolos. It really is a small price to pay for a lifetime in Carrie's shoes, is it not? All that's missing is a pink tutu and a Cosmo.
