The beloved Fendi product will be offered in the styles and colors we remember as well as in a vast new array of colors from office-accepted neutrals, to bright, sparkling purples for the glittery, glamorous clubber.
It is unlikely that you will ever meet a girl who has not had personalized jewelry. The iconic nameplate necklace has never gone out of style since Carrie rocked her very own on Sex and the City. Carrie Bradshaw was known for her love for shoes; after all, she had one of the most enviable closets on television.
Centered around a group of Manhattan women struggling with sex, careers and an unquenchable thirst for the latest accessories, the show was indeed the first of its kind—and has since spawned a seemingly endless stream of knockoffs. Initially based on a newspaper column in The New York Observer by Candace Bushnell, the series creator Darren Star had no idea what a phenomenon it would cause—nor did Patricia Field, the quirky costume designer who put names like Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo on our radar and made the ladies who loved them fashion icons. While the show has given way to two less-than-excellent feature films not to mention The Carrie Diaries on The CWnothing compares to the original minute episodes. The ladies' shoe of choice was undoubtedly the Manolo Blahnik.
