“In a silly way, I think it’s what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw,” the 48-year-old Sex and the City actress confessed to a Vogue reporter.

In the hit HBO series, Sex and the City, Carrie had something of a shoe addiction. One of the most-quoted lines from the show was, “I’ve spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!”

The actress is taking inspiration from “great old-school labels like Charles Jourdan and Maud Frizon” for her collection, with the aim of offering “something different” – in terms of shape, color, and price. Think pared-back, simple and elegant, with pumps and flats priced between $200- $300 and bags for around $700.

The SJP collection will be produced entirely in Europe and New York City, exclusively being sold at Nordstrom department stores, and it is expected to appear early next year.

I cannot wait!!!
