Manolo’s Saturday Miscellany

Manolo says, here are the few links which may perhaps amuse…

I had to explain to one young woman why a tight tank top with the word “BOOTYLICIOUS” emblazoned across the chest in glitter script was not appropriate office attire.

Shoes? Or office furniture? Who can say?

In a time when top luxury shoes cost probably as much as jewelry, I’d rather show off my shoes then my diamond ring.

    Now I love shoes as much as the next girl (that is if the next girl is Imelda Marcos), but I feel that in this matter I must defer to the words sung by Marilyn Monroe “Men grow cold as girls grow old and we all lose our charms in the end, but bent back or stiff knees you stand straight at Tiffany’s. Diamonds are a girls best friend!”

    Far more easily converted to cash in a pinch when the wolf comes a knockin’.

    Regarding the appropriate wear for the office – I have a co-worker who has been trying to get a new job, and for the third time she has gone to an interview only to be turned down. Could it have something to do with the fact that what she wore to the interview was a matching set of sweat pants and sweat shirt? This is a woman of 35, and she routinely wears sweat clothes to the office. One outfit has Winnei the Pooh printed on it.

    Sorry, but I’m with gemdiva on this. Long after the shoes have worn out, are out of style or your feet are too big to fit into them anymore, the jewelry will still be there.
    You can wear your jewelry, redesign it, leave it to your daughter or melt it and convert to cash. Jewelry is an asset.

    And don’t get me wrong….I adore shoes. But when it comes to making a buying decision between blahniks and bling, I’d go for the bling….but only at wholesale prices!

    Come and browse the bling before you you make a decision about buying that next pair of pricy shoes.
