The SJP Collection…

Yes. Yes. Yes… you did just read that heading right.

I am very excited. Sarah Jessica Parker is launching a collection of shoes, with a handbag collection and a ‘Manhattan’ trench soon after. For anyone who is an admirer of SJP or a fan of Sex and the City this should have you with a big happy smile…

I almost feel like dancing.

Who better to design shoes than the woman who has strutted in heels through multiple city blocks and portrayed a character who openly spent a month’s rent {or more} to buy some stunning shoes? This collection has it all, beautifully crafted heels, ones that are simple and elegant, or brightly coloured with decoration. Not to mention sandals and ballet flats – something for every woman.

A real draw card for me was that to create this collection, Sarah Jessica collaborated with the president of Manolo Blahnik – a brand much favoured by Carrie and myself. I often look at pictures of them – beautiful, handmade Italian leather and nearly purchased some when I went to the USA… I think this collaboration is a brilliant pairing, and a pair of these shoes has now made the top of my list. Each shoe has a signature that will become identifiable with the SJP Collection, some grosgrain {either in trim, accent, detailing} which is the kind of ribbons that SJP wore in her hair as a little girl. I love items that are instantly identifiable, like Louboutin’s red soles or the quilted handbags from Chanel, and I think this throwback to her childhood is really special.

I have seen a few pairs that I am lusting over… and a pair that made my heart race. This pair is called ‘Diana’ and are a very classically sexy shoe, it does remind me of the Blahnik style of Mary-Janes but with a more feminine cut and modern detail {loving the angle of the strap across the foot}…

Beautiful Blake…

I admit, I am a long time admirer of Blake Lively. Long before she was pouting and stalking Manhattan as Serena Van Der Woodsen in Gossip Girl, I loved her as the sunny Bee in The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. It is not often a character can jump from your much-loved fiction novel to the tv screen and remain intact. For me, Blake was exactly how I had imagined Bee – so naturally the fascination stemmed from there.

I enjoy that Blake has this mysterious side of her, rarely commenting or making a show about her private life, an amazing wardrobe and the winning smile to pull off anything. “Girl Crush” material {I will admit}

She styles herself for most events and picks up tips from makeup artists she works with – relaxed, cool and down to earth.

Not only is she Karl Lagerfeld’s muse, she is also Chanel’s handbag ambassador, the face of Gucci’s ‘Premiere’ perfume and now announced as the latest ambassador for L’Oreal.

I think it is a great match – she has the perfect mix of class, elegance, charm, sexiness and a cute girl-next-door quality which makes her so much more approachable and relateable than most celebrities. For more about the partnership click here 

Does anyone else openly admit to a girl crush? Blake is just one of mine.. Have you purchased a product or tried a brand purely because of the celebrity endorsing it {and if so who/what!?}
