The Wellies

Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s many internet friends has asked the Manolo the question.

My friends and I are wondering, what does the Monolo think of the Welly? The one in question is the Jeffrey Campbell, like this one..

Manolo loves the Wellies!

Indeed, the Manolo has many times in the past recommended the rubber rain boots, although given his choice, the Manolo would prefer stylish, such as these boots from the Tretorn.

The Tretorn they are from Sweden!

The Manolo would also recommend, for the super fantastic city girl with the narrow calves and the whimsical tastes, these marvelous rubber boots from the Sigerson Morrison.

Very stylish, no?

As the final words of caution, the Manolo would tell you that, yes, with the rubber boots one may indulge in the moderate amount of the joyful whimsicality, however one must be careful to not topple over from the whimsicality into the ridiculous, or perhaps the frightening such as these with the Cowboy Goth Grateful Dead motif

Trust the Manolo, if he saw you stomping through the puddles with these upon your feets he would run away.

P.S. For the Manolo’s friends in the U.K. the Wellie Arts Blog!

What the Manolo Is…

Manolo says, it is Tuesday, time to see what the Manolo is…



Listening to…

As hard as it is to belive, the Freddy and the Fredericka it is the first novel the Manolo has ever read by the Mark Helprin, this despite the exhortations of many of the Manolo’s friends! And, as is often the case, the friends know best. This it is the smart and hilarious book, and the Manolo is sorry he had not read the Mark Helprin sooner.


Cor ad Cor Loquitur

Manolo says, these handsome suede shoes from the Kate Spade are yet another of the shoes named for the philosophers, this time the Augustine

With these upon your feets the Donatists and the Pelagians would not stand the chance.

Previously, the Pascal and the Liebniez.
