One More of the Runners Up

Manolo says, when the Manolo announced the winners of his contest on the Sunday last, the high quality of the entries made choosing the three winners and seven runners up most difficult indeed, and so although it was the happy occasion, it was with some sorrow that the Manolo was forced to select only ten.

One of the entries that nearly made it into the top ten, but did not, was the set of the haikus sent in by Katherine Delhotal of the Arlington, Virginia, which were based on the super fantastic shoes of the Magnolia, one of the gracious sponsors of the Manolo’s Super Fantastic Essay Contest.

So the Manolo he sent the little poems to the kind peoples at the Magnolias, hoping that they would volunteer to provide the Katherine with the prize suitable to her efforts.

And they did! The Magnolia peoples they have decided to present to the Katherine the pair of the shoes for her lovely efforts, which the Manolo now here presents along with the pictures of the shoes described in the haikus.

Shoes for the Poor Girl

Manolo says, here is the latest column the Manolo he wrote for the Express of the Washington Post.

Dear Manolo,

I love the expensive shoes you recommend, but I’m a poor working girl.



Manolo says, this it is the common dilemma. On the one of the hands it is the inalienable right of everyone to have the most super fantastic shoes, yet on the other of the hands, it is difficult to save enough of the moneys on what the “Man” he pays you.

But, do not worry, the Manolo he knows what it is like to be poor, so poor that you must fashion your own super fantastic shoes out of the candy wrappers and used bubble gum you have found on the street after the Halloween parade it has passed.

And so the Manolo, he would recommend to you you the Polaris from the Joan and David. It is the simple, classic pump, one that is on the sale at the Zappos for less than $100 of the American dollars, over 50% off!
