Shoes Debuted

“We are all divorced from life, we are all cripples, every one of us, more or less,” wrote the great Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky. “We are so divorced from it that we feel at once a sort of loathing for real life, and so cannot bear to be reminded of it. Why, we have come almost to looking upon real life as an effort, almost as hard work, and we are all privately agreed that it is better in books. And why do we fuss and fume sometimes? Why are we perverse and ask for something else? We don’t know what ourselves. It would be the worse for us if our petulant prayers were answered. Come, try, give any one of us, for instance, a little more independence, untie our hands, widen the spheres of our activity, relax the control and we… yes, I assure you… we should be begging to be under control again at once.” On the other hand, actress Sarah Jessica Parker is finally releasing her line of shoes, the SJP Collection, and though the footwear “is set to be exclusively available at Nordstrom and, from Feb. 28 to March 2, Carrie Bradshaw fangirls can flock to her NYC pop-up shop and get their fashion fix,” so who’s to say?
