The Manolo’s Favorites

Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s many internet friends has asked the Manolo the question.

Manolo darling, I love your blog, but I must know, which is your favorite blog entry?

For the Manolo this it is like the mother asked to pick the favorite child; the Manolo he loves all of them equally, except perhaps for the few he would prefer to abandon in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart.

However, since the Manolo he cannot name the single post, he will offer six bloggings that he believes captures the best of his witticisms with the pictures of the celebrities.

1. The Choice of the Peoples, Part 2

2. Tyrannosaurus Elton

3. My Name is Tommy and I Have a Torch

4. Too Much Bronzer

5. The Apotheosis

6. Say Mister

Since this post, it is now shamelessly about the Manolo, here is the link to the interview the Manolo he did with his friend the Kim the couple of the months ago.

Manolo’s Advertisers

Manolo says, the Manolo he must give the shout out of gratitude for two of the Manolo’s advertisers, there on the right of this page.

The first, it is the artist Dee Adams, whose minimalist work and decorative sensibility the Manolo adores. You must go to the DeeDee9:14’s website and look at her art and buy the many pieces.

The second it is the new shopping blog from the U.K. called the Closet Spy. The Manolo he had already linked to this most entertaining and professional blog even before they had decided to become the advertisers on the Manolo’s humble blog. So, as with the art of the DeeDee, the Manolo he is quite happy to recommend them to you.

Shoes For The Dancer’s Toes

Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s many internet friends has asked the Manolo the question.

I’m looking for shoes to wear this summer/spring, and adore the light, flirty sandals that many designers have created. Here’s the bad news: I’m a dancer, and while my feet look fine (thank goodness) my toes are a mess! After all of these years of dancing, they’re crooked, scarred, and some of my toenails are rather ugly from all the damage they get…

Are there any pretty, flirty, and above all, stylish shoes for this spring/summer that don’t show toes or show very little? I’m getting awfully tired of watching all of my non-dancer friends wearing sandals in the summer while I seem to be stuck in heels or my dance shoes…

Ayyyyy! The toes of the dancers, they can indeed be most “gnarly”. Yet, at the same of the time, the dancing en pointe it gives one the lithe and comely frame and the legs that are the envy of the friends, no?

Is this not always how it is with the life? Into it both the blessings and the curses they come.

Manolo says, this question, it has proven to be one of the more difficult ones that the Manolo he has attempted to answer. On the one of the hands, there are many of the pretty and flirty shoes for the summer this season. Yet on the other of the hands, the summer shoes of prettiness and flirtiness that cover the stank nasty toes, they are indeed most difficult to find.

However, it is not in the nature of the Manolo to fail where the shoes they are concerned. So below are three of the toe-covering shoes that perhaps meet the requirements of the Manolo’s internet friends.

Tods Womens Shoes Spring - Summer 2005    Manolo Likes!  Click!

These shoes from the JP Tods they are not so much the “flirty” as the sporty, yet with the kitten heel and the Tod’s hardware, they are dressed up and ready for the afternoon gathering at the yacht club.

Isaac Mizrahi - Taya (Natural Straw)    Manolo Likes!  Click!

This mule of the woven straw from the Isaac Mizrahi, it has the light and airy feel, like something for the tropics, that is if the tropics, they were on the Upper East Side.

Woah Nelly!

Manolo says, Ayyyy! The evil that is the Lagerfeld entity, it feasts on the flesh of the horses!

Though the word was that Karl Lagerfeld lost 90 pounds on a diet of horse meat, tomatoes and Diet Coke, the book detailing his methods lists myriad unappetizing concoctions such as tuna and blackberry mousse and calf’s liver with wild strawberries. What would you expect from a man driven by fashion? “It was for totally superficial reasons that I got started on this diet,” the Chanel designer says in “The Karl Lagerfeld Diet,” due in May. “I think that fashion is the healthiest motivation for losing weight.” At least he doesn’t try to fool his fellow dieters about how good the food is: “You have to be a real bore like me for the diet to work.”

Horsemeat? Very European.

What the Manolo is…

Manolo says, it is no secret that the Manolo he is something of the gourmand.

Hasselhoff!

Hasselhoff!    Mrs. Hasselhoff!

Manolo shouts, Hasselhoff! And Mrs. Hasselhoff!

Yes, the Mrs. Hasselhoff, she is the very good-looking woman. But is the Hasselhoff not preternaturally handsome?

Like one of the Greek gods; maybe the beardless Neptune, god of the briny deep, or perhaps, more appropriately, the Adonis
