The Faux Manolo

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, this explanation from the Faux Manolo, it is more than satisfying to the Manolo. In the fact, this part it made the Manolo laugh.

The Faux Manolo means not to distress the real super fantastic Manolo in any way. Manolo the fake loves the public service that the real super fantastic Manolo provides, and merely intended to be like the Santa at the shopping mall, giving the individual attention that the real Santa cannot expect to do and still do his magnificent work.

It is indeed true, the real Manolo he cannot be everyone at once, and so it is understandable that there would be those, like the department store Santas, who will perhaps adopt the persona the Manolo to spread the joys of fashion to the further reaches of the internets.

    The Faux Manolo–what a gracious apology!

    Manolo the Shoe Blogger–what a generous acceptance of above apology!

    Truly super fantastic!

  2. Laura Says:

    Oh Manolo, how I love you. You are the epitome of graciousness.

  3. themanintheseersuckersuit Says:

    We are pleased that The Manolo has been been soothed. The Faux Manolo had indeed performed a superfantastic service in bringing to the attention and the bookmarks of the Bored Buddies the Wisdom of The Manalo. Now, about this suit?

  4. Fausta Says:

    like the department store Santas
    Yes, but will they stand by the Salvation Army kettles clanging a bell?

  5. Eyégor Says:

    Eyégor, he has tried the Salvation Army kettles, making with the clanging of bell. For his labour, The Eyégor he was pelted with peppers and many kinds of the stinky, rotten fruit. The Eyégor he has moved to the other less dangerous pursuits. The kettle she ic currently unmanned.

    Both the true and the faux Manolos seem to have the hearts in the right places. How refreshing to see the cooperative coexistence. Ah, if only the leaders of the world could learn from such an example.

  7. bbking Says:

    The true Manolo and the faux Manolo, they have made the birthday celebration extend almost to the Christmas, wherein the Santies they reside.

    Thank you thank you thank you True Manolo for being the true courtly Shoe King.

    Now, can you get the Donald Pliners for less than the $185?

  8. Tania Says:

    Very funny, very gracious on both the Manolo and the Faux Manolo. And they all lived happily ever after.

  9. Victoria O Says:

    Huh? I got a headache trying to read all that.
    The Victoria she loves that which is faux and that which is real.

  10. PL Says:

    I might still be talking to a lawyer if I were you, Manolo. Though I don’t have all the facts, this has all the makings of a NY-LA power struggle. My mother and I have been discussing this for years: Where does the fashion begin? She says LA!For now, this west coast gal will be checking back here only, but not discounting the potential of the LA Manfauxlo.

  11. Manolo the Shoeblogger Says:

    Ah, but the Manolo he is bi-coastal!

  12. Martha Says:

    The Manolo is not just bi-coastal, he is omnipresent, at least for the Martha. Though she is far from having reached superfantasticness, she does now ask herself at least once a day, “What Would Manolo Do?” before she makes an aesthetic choice.

    And it brings her peace beyond all understanding.

  13. The Scarlett Says:

    The Scarlett was entertained by the drama that was the Manolo v. Manfauxlo situation. First of all, I discovered an alternative reality that is “the bored” and second of all I discovered, once again, the very gracious nature of our bi-coastal Manolo.

    The Scarlett just wishes that the faux Manolo would not refer to himself as the Manafauxolo since that makes him sound more like a Barry Manilow impersonator. Go ahead, fake Manolo … you may embrace the title that I bestowed upon you as the Manofauxlo.

  14. The Scarlett Says:

    Ayyyyyy!…. I meant to say Manfauxlo on that last line.

  15. PL Says:

    Yes, Manolo, you are bi-coastal, and more. Truly classic. You are the only one for me!

  16. Plain Jane Says:

    The Manolo is indeed the incredible genius, able to tell the faux from the true.
