In Search of Mary Jane Heels, Carrie Bradshaw Style

No prizes for guessing the pop-cultural reference point for this post. It can only be Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City season four episode 17. The “urban shoe myth” Manolo Blahnik Mary Janes are suddenly looking so spot on again, and I’m not the only one who thinks so. Ten years after “A Vogue Idea” first aired (can you believe it’s been so long?) designers are championing Mary Jane heels again.

Both Marc Jacobs and Stuart Weitzman have great updates on the pointed-toe Mary Jane pump this season, and it’s the perfect time to invest as the high street hasn’t quite caught on yet. Although I doubt it will be long until they do… And if you’re after the real deal head to Bergdorf Goodman who currently have Manolo Blahnik’s Campari Mary Jane pumps in stock. Such a classic!

SHOP: Marc Jacobs silver Mary Jane pumps at MyTheresa; Marc Jacobs red Mary Jane pumps at Net-A-Porter; Stuart Weitzman pink Mary Jane pumps at Shopbop

And in case you need reminding, here’s Carrie Bradshaw coming face-to-face with the Manolo Blahnik Mary Janes. I think it’s time to dig out my SATC season four box-set again…

Are you in the mood for Mary Jane pumps again? Which S/S 2012 design is your favourite?
