Spring Shoes for the Poor Girl

Manolo says, it is almost Spring, and as is usual the change of the seasons has brought the Manolo many emails from his poor girl internet friends asking the Manolo to help them find the affordable shoes.

In such cases the Manolo always gives the same response, which is to tell the poor girl to save her moneys so that she might be able to purchase the truly super fantastic spring shoes. Do not forget that the beautiful and well-made shoes make the wearer stand taller, walk with more confidence, and enjoy life more fully.

But, at the same time, the Manolo also knows what it is like to be poor, so poor that you must construct your own super fantastic spring shoes out of crocus petals and crushed robins’ eggs. And so he offers here the few spring selections which can be worn by the poor girl until she can afford better.

Here is the low wedge peep toe from the Franco Sarto in the “pewter lizard” that the Manolo finds both striking and wearable.

This attractive sandal from th O Oscar the Manolo shows you here in the blue color which is popular this year. Would these not herald the coming of spring?

O-Celeste by O Oscar from Oscar de la Renta   Manolo Likes!   Click!

Here is another handsome shoes from the O Oscar by the Oscar de la Renta, the wedge heel sandal with the brown strappiness.

Any of these would get the poor girl through the season and into the summer when she will have saved enough of the moneys to afford better.

    I’d buy any of those shoes! They’re all wonderful.

    The Pradas are absolutely yummy–I fell for them immediately. I can see myself getting them very dirty, however, so if anyone out there is like me (i.e. well-intentioned but somewhat hapless), I’d suggest she get one of those fantastic little rubbery shoe-cleaning spongy things for suede; they clean well, they raise the nap of the suede effectively, and they don’t pulverize the fibers like the metal suede brushes do.

    The color of the Prada shoes is sublime – easy to wear and flattering to the leg.

    For cheapies, I like the Franco Sartos.

    Oh, I love the “pewter lizard” wedges! I instantly tried to add them to my shopping cart but, alas, they do not have them in my size.

    I have the Franco Sarto shoes in a heel instead of a wedge in black patent with cream piping and button.

    I love the shoes so much I have already bought two dresses to match them. You know you love shoes when you are buying dresses to match.

    I have to tank the Manolo for directing us to the Franco Sarto shoes. They fit so well and are all so lovely. In my slow evolution from a Birkenstock wearing schlub to a super fantastic woman I am LOVING Franco Sarto.
