Manolo says, is the Manolo the only person who remembers when being called the prostitute was not the good thing?
Manolo loves the shoes!
No, Manolo, you are not alone. My wife and I both remember this halcyon time lost in the mists of the recent past.
They say that: Actress Jean Harlow was at a dinner party and kept on addressing Margot Asquith (wife of prime minister Herbert Asquith) as MargoT (pronouncing the ‘T’). Margot finally had enough and said to her “No Jean, the T is silent, as in Harlow”.
And not very aptly named, since she’d have to be one classy and pricey hooker to afford the shoes.
Since when does a large furry snow creature of the mountains need a sensible flat show with a perky bow? Must be to brighten up those dreary winter treks through the mountains of the same name while looking for the “Yeti Johns”
Good heavens. If being called a harlot is now a good thing, my education must have been very behind the times, since I have only been out of school a few years. I cannot imagine why anyone would wish to call their shoes that. Surely the naming of shoe brands has not reached the limits of language such that this was the only word left.
Perhaps the line of shoes is aptly named? If I had to choose between selling my body and wearing any of those shoes, well……
Hi, casually broken into this marvelous blog. I love these manolo’s shoes and would love to put a pair on. Unluckly i really can’t find them here where i live (a “small” city in italy)
Do u think i colud find them in Rome, maybe?
I love how they provide a “brand pronunciation” just in case we were confusing them with Harlow
The Deja thinks this was intended as irony, however with the alleged popularity of “pimp’n’ho” parties with the young people these days, one never knows.
Oliver Peoples has a style of sunglass with the same name.
I don’t liek slut or harlot, but “floozy” sounds like it’d be fun for a while.
Well, I am old enough to even remember when it was embarrassing if someone was able to see your underwear in public. These days, we seem to be lucky if certain people even bother with putting on a decent pair of panties!
Remember when being promiscuous was a bad thing? Try listening to a bunch of high school girls singing about being promiscuous. Damn you Nelly Furtado!
