The charming and funny Never teh Bride who runs the Manolo’s humble Bride Blog, she is running the small contest in which she is asking for the crazy stories about the weddings, and to the craziest/funniest/oddest stories she will be giving away the grab bag of the items from the soon-to-be-released new DVD of the Pride and Prejudice movie.

Such as this, the track of the sound.

Manolo the Profiled

Manolo says, the Manolo he has been profiled by the Professor Norm! Here is the sample.

Can you name a major moral, political or intellectual issue on which you’ve ever changed your mind? >

Previously, the Manolo, as the man of tradition, he was opposed to the wearing of the white shoes after the Labor Day. But now, he has decided that this tradition it is outmoded and not suited to the present. In the stead, the best rule it is, if the shoe looks good, the shoe it must be worn.

What philosophical thesis do you think it most important to disseminate? >

Everyone has the right to be super fantastic!

What philosophical thesis do you think it most important to combat? >

That beauty is the subjective, artificial construct. Indeed, it is not. Beauty and the appreciation of beauty they are part of the very essence of the human soul, and are indeed eternal verities.

Go read the whole profile.

The Next Carnivale of the Couture

Manolo says, the Carnivale of the Couture for the next week, it will be at the blog of the very witty Verbal Croquis. Here is the topic to be:

You are throwing a little dinner party in your apartment featuring fashion glitterati, past or present, dead or alive. You are only allowed to invite 5 people, so be careful in your selections. Feel free to include designers, style icons, journalists, models, moguls, intellectuals, you name it. Make your invite list, please share your reasons why you invited each person. Remember, every good hostess takes into consideration how their guests will mingle, so tell us about that too. For brownie points, tell us what they’re wearing, what you’ll wear and what you’ll serve, etc.

This it is the most amusing premise.

The schedule for the two weeks following this it is:

Week of Monday, March 6th – Counterfeit Chic
Week of Monday, March 13th – The Bag Snob

If you are the fashion blogger who would like to host the Carnivale and have not yet done so, please send the Manolo the email so that he may add your name to the list.

Manolo the Columnist

Manolo says, the Manolo’s most recent column for the Express of the Washington Post it is now available for the downloading. Today, it is the topic of crazy daredevils who will attempt to buy the wife the shoes.

Dear Manolo,

My wife and I will soon be celebrating our third wedding anniversary, a.k.a. the leather anniversary. Can you recommend super fantastic shoes I can buy for her?

Mike

Manolo says, the Manolo he has two reactions to his friend’s desire to buy his wife the perfect shoes.

Firstly, truly this is the young man deeply in love!

Secondly, Ayyyyyyy! Buying the perfect shoes for the wife? Abandon hope all ye who enter here! This way madness and disappointment lie!

Selecting the perfect shoes to be given as the gift is perhaps the most difficult task the Manolo can imagine.

Not only must the shoe be beautiful and luxurious, but the giver of the gift shoe must have the acute knowledge of the shape of the recipient’s foot and the sense of her personal style.

This it is why it is, in the opinion of the Manolo, it is better to pick out the fine leather handbag, perhaps from the Kate Spade or the Prada.

However, if the friend of the Manolo persists in the mad venture, the Manolo would suggest giving the shoes together with the reservation to the fanciest restaurant in the town, so that the potential crushing disappointment will be cushioned by the nice meal, and perhaps two or three bottles of the expensive wine.

Thus, with this in the mind, the Manolo suggests that the Iliad from the Michael Kors has the classic yet senusous line that few women could resist.

The final piece of advice, it is to buy the shoes at the place with the liberal policy of returns.
