Can’t get enough of Sex And The City style? It’s been years since the iconic show has aired on HBO, however through the power of reruns and box office hits at the theaters – Carrie’s Style LIVES ON!

Sarah Jessica Parker is launching SJP–her first shoe collection in collaboration with Manolo Blahnik–bringing her character Carrie Bradshaw’s shoe dreams to life. Parker’s Sex and the City character is a style icon and because she “got to play that role, I wore a lot of shoes, and by default I learned an enormous amount,” the actress told Vogue. Bradshaw’s alter ego is offering “something different” to reflect her personal taste and, according to British Vogue, “old-school labels like Charles Jourdan and Maud Frizon” inspired her collection. “We’re putting new colors together that people don’t typically do.”
SJP will be introduced in Nordstrom stores, but everyone can shop the collection online at Nordstrom.com. The line will include sandals, flats, pumps, and boots ranging from $200 to $400. Which is what you’d expect from the woman who’s television persona, Carrie Bradshaw once confessed to owning about $40,000 in shoes. The line will be sold exclusively through Nordstrom in 2014.
Check out some of our favorite Manolo Blahnik / Sex And The City moments below…

As we all know, fashion can be difficult to follow. In an industry where one color, fabric or pattern can be insanely hot one minute and totally out the next, there’s no doubt that keeping up is no easy task. There’s no reason why we can’t cheat Mother Nature and beat seasonal style to the punch…take a leap of stylish faith by trying out these haute Spring trends today…

Rise and Shine in Iridescent Glory
We’re just basking in the dreamy haze of iridescent bags, shades, and fabrics as far as we can see. One thing was sure on the catwalks of London Fashion Week — shine is going to big come Spring. Mulberry’s shiny separates in English garden-inspired floral prints were balanced out with soft leather trousers, Antipodium layered tailored waistcoats over gold dresses, and Topshop Unique also showed how to keep iridescents low-key by teaming silver trousers and skirts with simple white tees and pastel knits.
Spice it up with sporty dress wear
Kick things up a notch in tailored baseball and tennis tops, painterly snap-back caps, and body-conscious street wear that show off your best moves (and curves). Spring’s sporty dresses—with their flirty A-line skirts and shoulder-showcasing bodices paired with tights and booties are the way to go until Mother Nature says so.
Answer The Call Of The Jungle
In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the diva struts tonight….Heed calls of the wild wherever they lead. Pop graphics, tropical fruit motifs, and patterns made for preening add up to a killer look.
As New York Fashion Week comes to a close, one of the highlights of the week is the Betsey Johnson Fall 2013 Collection. Energetic 70 year old cart wheel diva Betsey Johnson debuted her Fall 2013 Collection to much surprise as most thought she was doomed after filing for bankruptcy. Apparently backer Steven Madden stepped in and save the day. Best known for her pouffy and frilly dresses, Johnson showed her new active wear line on a catwalk that included cell phones, flirting, and a dynamic exercise routine led by the designer that included running in place, yoga and pull-ups.
The garments presented were a mix of workout gear, party dresses, and accessories, all styled together in a wild explosion of colors -yellow, teal and hot pink lyrca -and layers. Cropped workout pants and zip-up jackets were printed with BJKicksA, the theme of for the show itself. Non-active wear clothes included sheer maxi dresses worn over leggings topped with faux fur.
Activewear by Betsey Johnson includes neon-spotted matching pantsets, topped with hot pink quilted vests. Models wearing these sporty numbers ended up prone on the floor, arms outstretched, doing yoga poses!After the model walked, they formed a line, where Johnson led a spirited “class” where tights were used for pulls and champagne bottle were used as resistance. The runway instantly transformed into a yoga studio with a series of curls, crunches, and sit-ups!
Betsey Johnson closed her show with her daughter Lulu, granddaughters and signature cartwheel with the loudest crowd ovation heard within the tents. What are your thoughts on the Betsey Johnson Fall 2013 collection? Will you be watching the reality TV shows “Betsey and Lulu” next month?
