These Are the First "Carrie Bradshaw Shoes" I've Actually Wanted

While I'm certainly a lifelong fan of Sex and the City, I've never found myself wanting to emulate Carrie Bradshaw. I adore her daring sense of style and the way that Sarah Jessica Parker effortlessly pulled off even the most polarizing of looks, but I won't be strutting down the street in a tutu and stilettos anytime soon.

Since Sex and the City entered our lives (and never left), "Carrie Bradshaw–inspired" has been a sartorial selling point. Perhaps it could be that it's overused, but whatever the reason, it never convinced me to buy anything… until now. I recently spotted on Leandra Medine's Instagram that a "#CarrieShoe" was soon to be released by her MR by Man Repeller collection for Net-a-Porter. They were reminiscent of one of my favorite Carrie Bradshaw shoes: A pair of crystal-embellished PVC stiletto mules that she wore with a floral print slip dress in the third season of the series. They're unabashedly girly, and these metallic purple-heeled sandals were too cool to forget, so I've been stalking them ever since. They just launched on Net-a-Porter, and stock is already running low on a number of sizes, which tells me that I'm not the only fashion girl who finds these "Carrie Bradshaw shoes" highly irresistible.
