This is the store of a love affair a girl has had with a pair of shoes, get ready.

One of the first blog posts I ever wrote on Royally Pink was about Sex and the City and Carrie Bradshaw. From that moment on, I've written countless times about my love for New York's favorite fashionista and today, in 2019, my love of the fictional character remains and has probably grown.

My life is spent trying to emulate Carrie Bradshaw, in my fashion, decor, and writing. A few months ago I rearranged my room and my desk ended up by my window so whenever I'm writing, I just feel like Carrie.

With my love of Carrie comes my love of Sarah Jessica Parker and a while ago, I started following her new shoe brand on Instagram. The page posted a while ago that they had a new pair of shoes, the Fawn, exclusive to Bloomingdales and I screamed when I saw them. They are a newspaper print and in my mind, are intended to pay homage to the famous newspaper dress that Carrie wore in Sex and the City.

For months I lusted after them and tried to justify a $400 pair of shoes. Yes, I buy that much in handbags but shoes are not my thing, and especially heels. I don't own a real pair of heels and try to get away with wearing flats whenever I can. I also destroy shoes; I will wear a pair for just one season and by the end of it, they have holes in them and are just in horrible condition. I am very hard on my feet and harder on my shoes.

However, I couldn't get the shoes out of my head. I went back and forth and finally decided I wasn't going to get them. Then, as soon as that happened, I went onto Bloomingdale's website on a whim and saw that the shoes were nearly 60% off. At that moment, I knew it was meant to be. I also knew exactly where I would wear them; I had a few parties coming up like my cousin's Christening and an engagement party. I knew that they would match pretty much anything and everything because they're black and white.

I bought the shoes and when they arrived on my doorstep, I nearly cried. These are by far the most gorgeous shoes I have ever owned in my entire life. I don't think I've ever been so happy with a pair of shoes or purchase in general. I couldn't wait to wear them for the first time.

Now, as I mentioned before I am not a heels girl. I look like Bambi when I walk in them and my feet are pretty much bleeding by the end of the night. I've worn heels and my legs hurt for at least three days after that. It's never a pretty sight.

I walked around a little bit in my house to break them in and found that they were pretty comfortable. The heels are around 4 inches so I wobbled a little but nothing I couldn't handle.

I wore them for the first time in February to my cousin's Christening and they were perfectly comfortable. I did a lot of standing and walking at the party but my feet weren't burning. They also looked so beautiful.

This past weekend was the 2nd time I wore them, this time to my friend's engagement party and it was a success. My feet were killing me by the end of the night and I walked out of the party with said heels in hand, but truthfully that would happen with any pair of heels. What was special about these were that I was able to dance in them comfortably, I was able to walk and didn't want to rip them off my feet during the night.

Once again, they looked beautiful with my plain black dress and even the men at the party complimented them.

I think if you're someone who loves heels, you'll find these shoes to be really comfortable and practical. I'm someone who hates heels and I love these shoes... and kind of want another pair of SJP Collection heels. I feel like SJP knows what she likes when it comes to shoes and if I'm going to trust anyone's opinions on heels, it's Carrie Bradshaw.

The newspaper print is not available in a ton of sizes right now but the SJP Collection does have the Fawn style in other colors and patterns! Also, make sure to keep an eye on Bloomingdales' website because the newspaper print shoe has gone in and out of stock a lot over the past year and a half.

I'm excited to continue my love affair with the SJP Collection!
