With the Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That…, looming on the horizon, and a continuing trend for all things 90s fashion, Carrie Bradshaw’s wardrobe from the original series is (scarily) coming back into fashion.
Fashion, as we know, is cyclical, so it was only a matter of time before Sarah Jessica Parker’s on-set outfits as Carrie Bradshaw in the hit 90s series came back around for another moment in the spotlight.
As such, ZARA is selling a pair of heels right now that look all too reminiscent of a pair that Carrie wore all the way back in series one. The shoes in question appeared in episode five of the first-ever season: Carrie is in a Dolce & Gabbana store and has her heart set on a pair of strappy silver stiletto heels adorned with fluffy lilac feathers, however her credit card is rejected. Luckily, Carrie’s glamorous socialite friend Amalita pops up at just the right time and does the noble (read: ridiculously rich) thing of just buying them for her.
Unfortunately, we don’t all have an Amalita in our lives to simply buy us the things we can’t afford. So we are ever thankful to ZARA, as these are the shoes they have duped for a much more purse-friendly price of £89.99.
The Zara feather heels feature the same stiletto-style heel, similar skinny ankle straps and of course those oh-so-glamorous fluffy feather detailing. The shoes are also available in black, but if you’re not so into these, ZARA has another similarly Carrie-esque style of heels on their shelves.
At the same price and available in blue and green, these Zara feather heels feature a lower heel and slingback mule style, but those ubiquitous coloured feathers stand strong so you can channel that same Carrie energy.
