The Manolo Week in Review

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, here is the best of the week from the Manolosphere.


I am of the opinion that we are doing our children a disservice by the constant bombardment of activities we deem important to their development. Classes, endless playdates, daycamps, and even daycare deliver large amounts of stimulation. An overstimulated child is not a happy child.

Spirit Fingers…

And when you’ve finished with that, see if you can figure out from below who is less than thrilled to be sharing the limelight with a bunch of minor talents.

Isidore Gallant…

In the modern era, Arthur Ashe epitomized the old ideal, while John McEnroe represented all that was rotten. Sartorially at least, Nadal rejects the gentlemanly tradition.


Convince myboyfriendTheArchbishopofCanterbury to force the entire Anglican Communion to eschew boring old purple for the weeks preceding Christmas and wear instead head-to-toe elaphe snake skin


Hoy seré muy visual. ¿Alguien sabría decirme que hay de parecido en estos Dries Van Noten, Gaultier, Louis Vuitton? He dicho parecido, no igual.

Mr. Henry…

Mr. Henry is no pasty man. He takes little pleasure in the genre of savory pies.


There may, indeed, be those paragons of childish virtue who can sit still through a twelve-course formal dinner happily chowing down on fois gras and fanciful eggplant dishes while wearing perfectly unwrinkled tafetta gowns directly after a full nuptual mass and three hours of formal photographs…but let’s not kid ourselves that this is standard.

Never teh Bride…

Tastes may change, but I’m not surprised that many of these hated buildings are boxy, gray, and otherwise extremely drab.


Un día como hoy pero de 1970 nació uno de los cantantes más polifacéticos de los últimos tiempos y una auténtica gloria de la música angelina: Beck.


While rushing to an appointment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Francesca noticed a little boutique with clothing for the Big Girl, but was too rushed to write down its name for further research, and now forgets…


La mezcla de colores es un obligado matutino.


Now, any fool knows this is completely impractical. You can’t shoot a sawed-off shotgun with one hand! Put the knife down, fool!
