shoes sarah jessica parker

You’d buy the shoes Sarah Jessica Parker wore in Sex and the City at the upcoming Gotta Have Rock and Roll Auction? Have you not heard there’s a new Manolo Blahnik? Gosh, you must really love cupcakes from Magnolia bakery, too.

First of all, stop going to Magnolia Bakery. The cupcakes there are always too dry and the icing is a really weird, papery consistency. If you are in the West Village and want a cupcake go to Sweet Revenge, because the cupcakes there are about 2,000 times better.

But there’s nothing I can do if you’re determined to walk a mile in Sarah Jessica Parker’s old shoes.

According to The Daily Mail: 

Sarah Jessica Parker is putting her Sex and the City shoes up for a charity auction.


The 48-year-old actress – who starred as Carrie Bradshaw in popular TV show Sex and the City – has donated three pairs of signed shoes from her days playing the fashion-mad writer in a bid to raise money for a New York high school.


The heels from Prada, Jonathan Kelsey and Dolce Vita will be sold alongside Britney Spears’ pink platforms from her Crazy tour, Shaquille O’Neal’s size 22 basketball shoes and Madonna’s thigh-high stiletto boots from her Super Bowl performance.


You know, in this Girls world, they actually seem almost quaint, don’t they? Carrie Bradshaw’s shoes seem like relics from a simpler, pre-recession time when someone was apparently getting paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to wonder aloud about their sex life every week. What will Lena Dunham auction off in ten years time? Shorteralls? Probably.
