Sarah Jessica Parker was recently harshly critiqued by fashion blogs for layering up a pair of stirrup tights with pumps - but it looks like we might have only ourselves to blame. The actress, who recently launched her new SJP shoe collection, commented that she got the idea (and many of her other fashion ideas) from everyday street style that she observed. She admits that she first saw another woman wearing stirrup tights and it lead to her own idea:  ''It's been so cold in New York that bare legs seemed almost undoable... So I started wearing tights, then I saw a woman in Seattle wearing stirrups with a pump and thought, 'Maybe I'll start wearing them with a strap shoe.' I am often inspired by women on the street whose names I'll never know.'' Laughing off her critics, the actress admits she doesn't see the look becoming a trend others will copy:  "I don't know if they'll catch on."

On her newly launched shoe collection, Sarah Jessica says that she was inspired by her 'Sex and the City' character Carrie Bradshaw's overwhelming desire to own designer footwear which she believes rubbed off on her over the years and decided to contact George Malkemus, CEO of Manolo Blahnik, to ask him to collaborate together on the idea: 'Having played this character for so long who had such a love of shoes—and, you know, some might say a reckless desire to have them—I just thought, “This is what I’d really like to do now.” I called him and said, “I have this crazy idea…”’
