Minding the Manolo

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

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.

    True artists never accurately estimate their own worth as they always judge themselves by impossibly high standards.




  2. Annalucia Says:

    ”glazed silver leather soles”

    If the Manolo only knew how the heart of the Annalucia skipped a beat when she saw those words. If ever she goes to the south of France she will certainly look up the shoe shop of the Mlle Agnes.

    Furlagirl, you have summed it up beautifully for all of us.

    Hola M. Manolo,
    I would really like to have you advice on which shoes are most suitable for me.
    I have created a poll on http://www.tangoinhereyes.blogspot.com
    with pictures of my Tango Shoes, created by Comme Il Faut in Buenos Aires. They are the Manolo Blahniks of the Tango World!
    Anyhow, your advice bestowed upon me would be most appreciated!
    Besos,
    Miss Tango

    As there is a penalty for disobeying the advice of the Manolo, so there is also the prize. The sinner repenteth and God rewards. The telephone rings and there is the commissioning editor enquiring whether I wish to go to Paris to interview Ms Agnes b herself. And of course I have the shoes.

    But what else am I going to wear?

    I love your heels
