SJP + shoes = l.o.v.e.?

Sarah Jessica Parker's highly-anticipated SJP shoe line hits Nordstrom on Feb. 28.

It's only natural Sarah Jessica Parker is coming out with a Carrie Bradshaw-inspired line of footwear. My only question is, "What took so long, SJP?"

"I've been thinking about doing this for years but never found the right fit," SJP tells (with pun intended, I'm sure). "Everything needed to align. From quality to price point."

For fashion lovers and Sex and the City fanatics this is intriguing news, indeed. Though the market is already saturated with celebrity-designer collaborations, we unashamedly can't get enough of SJP. 

We root for her when she announces yet another creative endeavor. Whether it's a fragrance collection (Lovely is, I must say, quite lovely), her Bitten clothing line (which unfortunately bit the dust shortly after the economy went south) or collaboration with Halston (which also bombed after Parker and the big wigs at Halston apparently couldn't work out their creative differences), hit or miss we want more. 

If SJP is anything like her on-screen alter ego, Carrie Bradshaw, then she knows shoes. Click here for a sneak-peek.

While the shoes look classic and the designs are beautiful (I can't wait to try on a pair myself), prices range from $195 to $485 and handbags go for $375 and under. Parker calls these prices "reasonable." 

What do you think? 

How much would you spend on a well-made, beautifully-designed shoe or handbag? What do you consider affordable vs. splurge? Does it matter to you if a product is backed by a celebrity? 

Come Feb. 28, I'll give a full report. Stay tuned...
