sjp in dallas


so when sjp x nordstrom (and manolo) announced their partnership, i died. i would get to buy a pair of shoes that carrie bradshaw, i mean sarah jessica (as she calls herself) designed. when, where, how, what do i need to do, i was on it. i read probably every article on the launch, put together a collection of everything here, remember!? then asked my sjp obsessed friend jamie to see if she wanted to go to a meet and greet in dallas. she was game and off we went, to meet our idol.


this is jamie, and this is us waiting in line to get inside to meet sjp. so yes we flew from kc to dallas. we also might have stood in line for three hours...whatever. it was totally worth it.


we arrived at nordstrom with the best welcome! the shoe and hand bag manager catherine. she was absolutely fantastic! she told us all about the hand bags (that had literally just arrived in store that day, crazy). she showed off her new pair of "diana's". and then took us over to the heavenly shoe department to find jamie her perfect pair. 







jamie found these amazingly adorable "leslie" espadrille! they were inspired by sjp's makeup artist. how cool?


i brought in my "fawns" that i received on wedesday before our trip. but i had to try on the "bobbie" my other favorite. they are pretty wonderful too. i may just have to get them!


the day of, i heard that courtney kerr the fabulous dallas blogger / bravo favorite was going to be interviewing sjp (would you die), i had my fingers crossed i would get to meet her, and i did! she was super sweet and looked fabulous! of course!



the crowds were crazy and made the day very fun and exciting! i even had a girl ask me to take a picture of sjp for her. so cute!


jamie went first, and boy am i glad she did! she was totally cool and so excited to meet her idol! oh and the nordstrom team took/ shlept our bags while we were with sjp, and they snapped all the candids for us. amazing team for sure.


meeting sjp was an absolute life highlight for sure. she is just so welcoming and darling. she introduced herself as "sarah jessica" (as if i didn't know), but was so charming and was thrilled that we flew from kansas city to meet her! she told me the "fawns" were the rock star shoe - fantastic! 


i just wanted to cherish this moment for ever! it was amazing. 


sjp signed the shoes, the box and the tag! now to wear the shoes, or not wear the shoes, that is the question. 


dress: gap | jacket: anthropologie (old) | necklace: jcrew | tights: target | pumps: seychelles | earrings: tory burch 

now you might be wondering, what does one wear to meet sjp? it was hard to decide for sure. but i landed on a great rose printed dress from gap! paired it with black tights, and gray pumps. then a great statement necklace from j.crew.

what did you think of our trip to dallas? would you ever want to meet sjp?
