Crocs = Lumbering Slobs

Manolo says, the Manolo has just discovered this series of somewhat amusing viral commercials for the British website that sells the odious Crocs.


“One thing I like about fat girls is that they’ll always…”

Manolo says, the Plumcake has written the post that every young person, everyone, should go read.

What the Manolo Is…

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



Listening to…

The Manolo has been delighted to have sent to him the definitive work on the boots of the cowboys, the book Cowboy Boots by the Manolo’s internet friend the Jennifer June. The Manolo has long been the reader of her Cowboy Boots blog, and her cowboy boot website is the most comprehensive, and by far the most entertaining on the internets.

This is the sort of book that would not only want to read yourself, but would want to give as the gift to the cowboy boot lovers among your friends.


Chinese Big Shoes

Manolo says, as the long time readers of the Manolo know, the Chinese peoples love the gigantic shoes! Here above is the latest example.

Here are the previous examples: Chinese Big Shoe 1, Chinese Big Shoe 2, Chinese Big Shoe 3, Chinese Big Shoe 4, Chinese Big Shoe 5, Chinese Big Shoe 6

Teeny Manolo!

Manolo says, once again, the Manolo’s modest empire of fashion and lifestyle blogs has expanded, this time to encompass the new blog devoted to all matters childish and child-rearingish, yes, it is time to introduce you to…

Teeny Manolo!

As always, the Manolo is certain that this will become one of your bookmarked, regular stops on the internet, for the two bloggers he has asked to help him at this blog are unusually funny and smart writers, the sort of peoples you will want to read daily. Naturally, they also share the Manolo’s Philosophy of the Super Fantastic.

And so now you must go and read this new blog.


Angeline Tournier Sunday Funnies


Manolo says, what shoes could be better for wearing to the late-summer, Sunday brunch with that tall man who has the smiling eyes and the ready laugh, than these Angeline Tournier peep-toe wedges with the Veronica and the Betty upon them?

Manolo’s Week in Review

Manolo says, here is the best of the Manolo blogs from the previous week.


A skirt, you see, is, if well-chosen, designed to de-accentuate the tummy and upper thighs, while pants do more to accentuate every line.

Mr. Henry…

From all the good arguments presented in the discussion, the most convincing one to Mr. Henry, the one that persuades him beyond a reasonable doubt, is taste.

Isidore Gallant…

Instead of respecting tradition, he asked to have five buttons on his cuffs, which is going to make the suit look out of fashion within a year.


Plumcake for example would rather hot oil wrestle a particularly unfriendly badger…naked.

Never the Bride…

After kola nuts are presented to welcome the bridegroom’s family and all the guests are seated, the bride (in orange) makes her first appearance to greet her future in-laws.


Chanel Jump Boots

Chanel Jump Boots   Manolo Shrugs in Indifference   Click!

Manolo says, This is the sort of item that gives luxury goods the bad name, and makes those who buy them seem silly.

Not because jump boots are not useful and very stylish in their way, but because the best jump boots in the whole world can be purchased for the the mere $121, hundreds of American dollars below the inflated Chanel retail price.

And these $121 boots, what are they?

Go ask the paratrooper, he’ll tell you. They’re Corcorans. Anything else is for ‘legs’.


Readings from the Book of Hasselhoff

Manolo says, daily readings from Don’t Hassel the Hoff. Today, page 103.

Nobody knew I was in town so I enjoyed the freedom of not having to worry about paparazzi. Every day I’d drive across town from my rented apartment to visit my voice teacher and then go to the studio to record. One afternoon I had stopped at some lights when I saw a boy and a girl walking home from schoool wearing Knight Rider backpacks. I rolled down the window

‘Excuse me, have you seen KITT?’

‘Errrrrrr, no.’

‘My name is Michael Knight and I seem to have lost my car.’

They seemed rooted to the spot.

‘Well, guys, if you do see my car please say I’m looking for him. Here are some pictures to remember me by.’

As I drove away, I looked in the mirror and the kids were screaming and jumping in the air.

P.S. Previous readings from Don’t Hassel the Hoff.

The Word of the Hoff!


Juliette Lewis is Little Edie

Manolo says, watch this video from (you must first sit through the ad)…

And then tell the Manolo it does not remind you of this…

The bizarre headgear, the odd songs, the dissociative ramblings…Ayyyy!

Juliette Lewis is Little Edie, but without the fashion sense or the pleasant personality.

P.S. Via the Manolo’s internet friend Michele at My Fashion Life


Scary Movies

Manolo says, ayyyyy! Lagerfeld Confidential is coming to the Film Forum.
