I don’t know about you, but Carrie Bradshaw does tend to annoy me somewhat. Every sentence born out of her keyboard seems to begin with: ‘I couldn’t help but wonder’ or ‘I got to thinking’; she loves the melodrama a little too much, and she chose Big over Aiden! What was that about?
I know, I know, it’s not the real world – I should really get a hold of myself. But the fact of the matter is, I think I’m using these petty arguments to conceal my true annoyance – Miss Bradshaw’s shoe collection.
Correction: one pair of shoes in particular – the “Something Blue” satin pumps from none other, than Manolo Blahnik. Not only does Carrie own these shoes, but she is proposed to with them (I’m sorry to any of you that haven’t yet seen the film… where have you been?).
In all fairness, in the moment I would probably prefer a ring, but these on the side would do just fine.
Actually, it wasn’t until I saw these shoes in person last weekend at a party, that I realised how striking they really are. The entire room paused (well every female did anyway) to stare in awe as the girl glided in, and I for one could not tear my eyes away. If possible, I even felt a little starstruck. Sad isn’t it?
These babies are available at Neiman Marcus for a cool $945.
