No matter how many designers (including Phoebe Philo for Celine) try embrace the mule trend over the years in different ways (remember, about 4 years ago clogs were EVERYWHERE) for me, pointed toe city mules are always Carrie mules. And now, 10 years after SATC ended (Friends also ended 10 years ago folks, we are getting old, so very old…) Ms Bradshaw continues to live on the streets: first the huge gold letter necklaces, now the city mules. I personally am very much pro open toe mules but the pointed toe ones are – as much as I swoon over them on super stylish gals – a tad too posh for me. But hey, never say never. .
