Manolo 90210

Manolo says, once again the Posse Manolo has been on the polite and well-heeled rampage through the mean-girl streets of the Beverly Hills.

And as always, there is much to see on the Robertson Boulevard, such as the angry and importuning papparazzi swarms, the re-engineered faces of the ladies who lunch, and the occasional glimpse of the celebrity of no consequence.

Such things, although remarkably entertaining, are the not the point of the trip to the 90210.

In the stead, it is the shoes!

And here are two of the Manolo’s favorites purchased by the members of the Posse during the day spent on the prowl.

First the beutiful, gold sandals from the Miu Miu

And then the simple, t-strap sandal in the antique bronze from the Donald J. Pliner.

Both of these they have the understated panache that the Manolo finds appealing in those women who do not need to obsessively seek out the attention of the press.

As for the luncheon while shopping, the Manolo politely suggests this place, the Michelia Nouvelle, as being the relaxed and tasty alternative to the power-based snobbery of the Ivy.

    The bronze shoes of the Donald Pliner are most super fantastic!

    Oh, to know that the Manolo was so near, yet not to have been vouchsafed the honor of a glimpse at him! Ah, well, the Norma has known greater disappointments — but not many.

    But Manolo – no glimpse of the shoes on Paris Hilton? Darn.

    I’m most pleased with myself. I have a pair of the Pliners, although in utilitarian black. My feet live the dream.

    I’ve browsed the menu of Michelia Nouvelle, and I must agree that all the dishes sound very tasty, too bad their website is tres ugly and very poorly made :(

    I must be getting better at picking out good shoes (thanks to the Manolo). Yesterday while perusing the Pliner offerings on Zappos, I saw those exact sandals and thought “Oooh, if only they were on the sale…” The Miu Miu sandals are equally glamorous, and they look comfortable too!

    I have been drooling after those Pliners for quite some time. Love all the colors that I have seen them in. Of course along withthe trend I love the metallic shoes this summer.
