Minding the Manolo

Manolo says, here from the NormBlog is the story of the consequences of not paying attention to the advice of the Manolo.

Once upon a time there was a young girl who every day read the blog of the marvellous person, the Manolo. She read it for its exquisite taste, its witty literary style and its humane and enhancing attitude to matters of everyday existence. But she was a bit of a foot-dragger when it came to actually following the advice contained therein: i.e. you must only ever buy the super fantastic shoes, and if you are the poor girl (which this girl isn’t, actually) then you must save up.

Such extravagant praise, it is enough to make the Manolo blush.
