Carrie Bradshaw has always had a love affair with shoes, and now you can too. Actress and now fashion designer, Sarah Jessica Parker, has expanded her accessory line to include footwear for the stylish bride. She announced the collection last October, but we are getting our first glimpse on the cover of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine. The collection includes a variety of colors, shapes, and styles for every style bride! Some of these shoes are reminiscent of the Manolo Blahnik pumps that Carrie Bradshaw wore so often.
While keeping a sense of tradition with the “something blue” colors, several nontraditional colors are featured. From chic shades of white to warm tones of coral, these shoes are far from typical! The shapes and textures are unique as well. Suede, lace, and other textiles are offered to complement the finish of any dress. We adore the “Tempest” pump for an urban wedding, and the elegant “Angelica” pointy toe pump for a more traditional ceremony.
Although the shoe line is seen as very distinct, Sarah Jessica Parker’s actual ceremony with current husband Matthew Broderick makes her current shoe line seem much more traditional. She wore a black dress, and claims that it is her “biggest fashion regret”. If she were to do it over, she says she would want to wear a cream, Oscar de la Renta styled dress, “just to have that bridal experience.”
Shoes We Love
This shoe has a satin finish and is adorned by a gorgeous rhinestone brooch on the front of the shoe. The leather lining makes for a comfortable fit, and the style of the shoe makes it easy to slip on and off. If you order the shoe in “Blush Satin” there is a baby blue strip on the back to serve as “something blue”. We love this shoe for an urban wedding due to its comfortable fit, yet chic look.
This shoe closely resembles the style of the shoes that Carrie wore as she finally tied the knot with the one and only Mr. Big, except they are white! We love the beautiful buckle embellishment to give you sparkle on your big day! The toe is pointed, yet exudes elegance and glamour.
These open-toed pumps totally give us Charlotte York vibes! Made with creme colored satin, we can definitely say that this shoe is perfect for a traditional ceremony. The bow embellishment on the shoe makes for a cute, yet subtle detail that we love.
These heels are a total classic, and should be in every fashionista bride’s closet! The floral lace will add a soft, feminine touch to any wedding dress. The shoe maintains the pointed toe style that we see throughout this entire collection. We suggest these tasteful pumps for a more charming, southern belle bride.
As a devout fan of both Sarah Jessica Parker and Sex and the City, I am totally going to need these shoes in my closet as soon as possible! Again, we love how the collection is cohesive, yet maintains versatility to suit the styles of any kind of bride.
