SJP’s Shoe Collection Will Make You Miss Sex and the City
Carrie Bradshaw may have just been a character Sarah Jessica Parker played on Sex and the City for a while, but the obsession with shoes? Well, that rings true for both the character and actress alike. No stranger to the footwear industry, SJP has already created a line with both, O Magazine, and Nordstrom, but now she has progressed to a new line all her own.
Simply titled “SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker” the line – which naturally consists mostly of sky-high stilettos – has been available at Neiman Marcus for a few months already, but has only just launched on Zappos Couture. Harvey Nichols and Bloomingdale’s in Dubai are said to be up next.
As far as what you can expect to see in the line, just imagine all of Carrie’s most colorful heels. You’ll find a few pairs in subdued colors like black and nude, but the collection’s backbone is all about super vibrant pops of color. “We wanted to rethink what might be considered a neutral,” Parker says in a video discussing her collection. “We want purple to be the new black. We want gray to be the new black. We want women to be really brazen about using color because I think women are always looking for that little thing to set them apart.”
As you may have guessed from the selected assortment of retailers, while they’re totally beautiful, these kicks definitely aren’t the cheapest on the block. The least expensive shoe is a simple black flat that comes in at $285, whereas the most expensive goes to a pair of leather, lace-up booties retailing for $485. It might be half your rent, but hey, you can’t put a price cap on looking like Carrie Bradshaw, can you?

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
