    They say that the clothes make the (wo)man, but in Sarah Jessica Parker’s case, the woman absolutely makes the clothes. So, we kicked up our heels when the Sex and the City star announced she was designing a line of shoes for Nordstrom, available at midnight on February 28th. Because, sartorially, who doesn’t want to be Carrie Bradshaw? And—how lucky are we?—Parker has taken time to share fashion favorites straight from her closet, must-have beauty products, and her obsession with genius novel The Goldfinch. After flipping through her list, we couldn’t help but wonder, could we walk a mile in her shoes? Turns out, with her amazing new collection, SJP, we can!

    Rainbow Mugs ($60)

    “Reminds me of all the ‘cool’ houses I would visit as a pre-pubescent. Families who lived in mid-century houses always seemed in possession of mugs like these. I adore them. The perfect gift!”

  • Serge Normant

    Dry Shampoo ($25)

    "It's the gift that keeps on giving. For those of you like myself that have to maintain a blow out for more then a couple of days, it's a girl’s best friend. There’s nothing like it, and it smells fantastic.”

  • Laura Mercier

    Tinted Moisturizer ($43)

    “For someone like myself who doesn't love the look of a lot of makeup, it's a wonderful light base. Evens out complexion in a demure way and never looks mask-like. It absorbs in beautifully to give a fresh, even look.”

  • Laura Mercier

    Caviar Stick ($26)

    “It doesn't move! The color is magnificent, looks sublime on all eye colors, and never betrays you.”

  • Ultra Brite

    Toothpaste ($2)

    “I always thought, ‘when I grow up I'll use Ultra Brite, a mature toothpaste’. Back in the days before ‘whitening.’ It's still affordable, and I love the taste.”

    Vintage Belt

    “No matter how many times I clean out my closet, no matter how thoroughly, these items remain.”
