“The fact is, sometimes it’s really hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes. That’s why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun.”
Last Friday, the adorable Sarah Jessica Parker came to Chicago. She’s just launched a shoe line and was doing a meet and greet at Nordstrom on Michigan Avenue. The deal was, if you bought a pair from her line you could meet her and have her sign them. I’m such a huuuge fan of hers, but honestly, spending $350 on a pair of heels just isn’t in the budget these days. So, I did what any normal girl would do… I tried them on and had a little fun playing dress-up.
Meet ‘Maude‘. This was hands down my favorite. I love that they’re metallic, and ladies- let me tell you- THEY WERE COMFORTABLE! The heel hight on these is just over 3 inches! That’s unheard of in a shoe this cute! Which made my decision to leave them at the store even harder.
This is ‘Carrie‘. It comes in a few different colors, but that day it only came in black in my size. And I’m pretty sure they were a little small… But I had to try, right?
So many gorgeous shoes! But by this time it was 4:15, and SJP was supposed to make her entrance on the 3rd floor in 15 minutes. So I bid adieu to Maude and Carrie in hopes of getting a glimpse of the real Carrie. I was not disappointed.
Such a fun day. Truth be told, if I hadn’t juuuuust moved and spent all my money on couches, I probably wouldn’t have left empty handed. While $350+ isn’t inexpensive for shoes, they were comfortable, stylish, and very well made.
