In college, I had two pairs of flats from Nine West that I loved so much I wore them literally into the ground. One was a cherry-red pair with a bow; the other, a pair of cobalt blue satin flats. It was a hard day to admit they were fully goners (holes in the soles and everything) and ever since then, I've been looking for the right replacement.
Leave it to Sarah Jessica Parker to design my dream shoes. She's rendered her "Carrie" flat in a royal blue satin, exclusively for Net-a-Porter, and it ticks all my boxes: A comfortable style in the prettiest shade, but more sophisticated than my college pair thanks to the elevated T-strap details. It's the shoe I've been dreaming about for nearly a decade — and this time, I promise I'll get them properly cobbled so I won't wear holes through them.
SJP "Carrie" satin point-toe flats, $355, available at Net-a-Porter.
