“I lost my Choo”
It has been decades but still Sex and the City is my favourite. I can relate to the ladies on so many levels. Whenever I am gloomy or dull and just need to smile, I always tend to watch Sex and the City. No doubt the girls are witty, funny, sexy, fashion-forward and simply fabulous. But one thing which has been persistent is their love for shoes. Me, being a shoe fetish love that as they make my shoe obsession seem very normal.
Here are some of my favourite shoe moments from the show;
How can we forget the iconic scene from Sex and the City movie when Mr Big proposes Carrie with this beautiful blue Manolo Blahnik.
Or, the silly fight between Carrie and Aiden regarding cleaning Carrie’s apartment to make room for Aiden.
Now let us talk about a ‘Woman’s right to shoes’. Here are few of the best ‘shoe’ quotes I have heard the girls say and laughed my hearts out whenever I came across them and obviously I completely agree to these shoe confessions.

“The fact is, sometimes it’s hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes. That’s why we need really special ones now and then – to make the walk a little more fun.”

Carrie Bradshaw is an iconic character who made Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo a household name…
Carries love for shoes has been eternal and needless to say, our love for shoes will never die as well.
