Taking the Perfect Shoe Selfie Is Hard—Just Ask SJP

Sarah Jessica Parker is a triple threat—actress, business lady, and style icon—yet even someone as talented as she can have trouble from time to time when it comes to Instagram. It can be pretty tricky capturing a beautiful image with the constraints of your cell phone screen. Well, that’s exactly the scene that was captured this past weekend as the New Yorker sat on a stoop attempting the perfect shoe selfie (or shoefie, if that’s your style).

We know the struggle is very real when it comes to truly double-tap-worthy images. So for future shoe selfies, here are two tips that we already swear by. Firstly, we use the grid function within Instagram to make sure our feet are aligned just so. In this case, Parker went for a more tilted composition, but to each her own. Secondly, we always add a cute accessory to bring even more dimension to the photo—a tip which she totally utilized with her black fedora. The end result was quite lovely, of course, but if SJP needs any future tips on how to make her clothes shine on social media, we're here for you.
