Over the weekend I had the pleasure of visiting the limited edition Sarah Jessica Parker for Nordstrom pop-up shop in Soho! Safe to say this was the highlight of my weekend and pretty much my life, my little sister and I waited on live for 2 hours to meet Carrie Bradshaw herself and check out her exclusive Nordstrom collaboration in person!
So like many other girls out there, I aspire to be Carrie Bradshaw…stylish, independent, writing for Vogue with a killer Manhattan apartment and closet…although that may not be my current reality, something Carrie and I have in common is our love for footwear, which I shared with SJP when I finally got to speak to her and told her about how I work in the footwear industry in Manhattan and how my friends and family call me the modern day ‘Carrie Bradshaw’ (I could only hope 😉 )! I even spotted the legendary Andre Leon Talley while waiting on line to get in…fashion heaven!
Her line for Nordstrom isn’t just shoes, there’s jackets and bags all suiting for the gal on the go who loves to twirl in a tulle skirt or wear a pair of metallic heels with ripped boyfriend jeans…the possibilities are simply endless! I personally purchased the ‘Bobbie‘ in coral which is perfect for spring into summer for work or play. Now don’t get me wrong, while I love the collection, the price tag is a little steep for a fashionista on a budget like myself. Her shoes are being created in Italy by George Malkemus aka Mr. Manolo Blahnik (He is President of the company)! Talk about a winning combination…SJP put Manolo on the map during her ‘Sex and the City‘ days! Does ‘Hello Lover‘ ring a bell? 🙂
Sarah Jessica herself was a total sweet heart. She took photos with my sister and I and even chatted with us for a few minutes…best few minutes of my life! Safe to say Carrie didn’t disappoint and I will continue to dream of being proposed to with satin blue Manolo Blahnik’s in a custom built walk in closet on the penthouse level of an New York City building…I tend to dream big!
