Manolo says, occasionally the Manolo he get the letters like the following.
Ah, Manolo, how I love your blog with it’s unerring advice for the stylish and it’s gentle and unmistakeable disdain for the truly unworthy. You bring a smile to the most difficult day. I even read your advice for the Super Fantastic girl because your tone is enthusiastic and your words are often wise, but alas, I will never be Super Fantastic myself. As a school teacher in a poor district, cursed with thin hair and thick ankles, I may do much good in the world but I will never adorn it. Would you be so kind as to consider these two requests? Firstly, can you recommend a practical shoe – or shoe style – for those of use with the strong sturdy legs so good for hiking or breaking up a fight between two teenaged boys but not so good for showing off the stylish shoes? Secondly, if you think of it, could you find a phrase for people who are drawn to the Super Fantastic, who read the newletter and surf the Manolo on ebay, but only in the spirit of fantasy?
Manolo says, this person she is the lovely, honest human, however she does not fully understand the process of attaining the super fantasticness. She believes that because she is poor, and not possessed of the elegant ankle, that she will somehow be denied super fantasticness.
Nothing could it be further from the truth!
Manolo asks, are you not reading the blogs of the Manolo?
Then certainly you are either already super fantastic, or soon to be super fantastic.
This it is one of the secrets of the world of the Manolo: all you must do is read. Then, as the lessons of the Manolo they percolate down through the brain, you gradually become more super fantastic.
If you are the regular reader of the Manolo’s blogs you gradually begin to make the correct fashion choices, and over the time your wardrobe and your person they become more super fantastic. It is involuntary, and almost inevitable.
Of the course, the process it is greatly speeded up if you take the active role. For the example, the Manolo would recommend to his dispirited friend that she cease to focus on her trivial flaws and consider her many and manifest virtues.
If one has the unfortunate “log leg” without the ankle, then one must do what the Hillary Clinton does and wear the elegant pantsuits. If one is poor, one must be doubly sure to buy the durable high quality goods when they are on the sale, and then maintain them in good condition. The rules are simple, easily learned, and easily followed.
Manolo says, like so many things, the super fantasticness it is mostly the matter of the attitude.
