Sarah Jessica Parker has been influencing shoppers since she first appeared in the iconic Sex and the City television show, and she really hasn’t stopped since. Her latest contribution to the shopaholic world is an eponymous line of shoe: SJP.
She had so far stuck to sky-high stilettos and embellished flats, but recently released her first pair of sneakers – and like anything Parker put together as Carrie Bradshaw, there’s more imagination than tradition in this pair of sneakers.
Structured like a skinny t-strap flat, but with a cushiony sneaker sole, this is a sneaker for the non-sneaker girl.
It comes in two extremely sparkly metallic shades (so sparkly, in fact, that they named the shoe Meteor) and also in a denim textile, and has already sold out at multiple stores. Find it at Bloomingdales.com or SaksFifthAvenue.com.
WHAT’S NEW: Most likely you’ve seen a fidget spinner, one of those take-the-world-by-storm inventions no one really needed to invent. But did you know you can scratch your fidget spinner itch on your phone?
App designers had fidget spinner apps created about as soon as most of us even knew they were a thing, and if you ask me, the apps are better than the real thing: less visually distracting, no annoying whirring sounds, and they even keep your statistics for you so you can count how many “spins” you get up to.
You’d be amazed at how many apps are already out there, but the best ones by my count are “Fidget Hand Spinner” by chenziming chenziming and “Fidget Spinner” by Get a Charge LLC. You’ll find these to be simple, well-designed, and even better than the real thing.
