Manolo says, after much deliberation and equivocating, the Manolo has finally selected the winner of his latest Build the Outfit contest, and it is the Amanda, who submitted the fun and sporty outfit featuring the Banana Republic top and the William Rast straight leg jeans to go with the blood orange Tsubal Zibals.
Here are the Amanda talking about her choices.
Ah, the Tsubos. I own Tsubos myself and am a HUGE fan. I cannot think of a better shoe for shopping on the Madison Avenue in the NYC with the gaggle of girlfriends. So comfortable, so stylish! This outfit would be my choice for such the activity.
The color choice of red, it reminds us that fall is coming around the corner. But the white on the tote says that yes, I love the summer and I embrace it!!!
The tote, it was chosen to tone down the wildness of the shoes and the accessories, as well as to carry the spoils of the shopping spree.
My favorite item in the outfit (aside from the Tsubos, of the course) are the beautiful dainty glass earrings (note how wonderfully they match the colors in the shoes!). In this ensemble, the sharp and sassy girl could transition from the Bloomindales to the drinks at the Tao with ease.
For the Manolo, however, it was the choice of the newsboy cap which caused this outfit to fulfill the requirements that it be for the sporty girl, who also has the “somewhat charmingly oddball manner.” Yes perhaps this hat was not to everyone’s tastes, but the Manolo thought it was cute and very Soho.
And now the Manolo must thank his friends at the Tsubo, who have graciously provided the prize, one pair of the Tsubos, to be sent to the Amanda for the job well done!
