Prada Tall Wedge Boots For the Monday

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, one of the saddest mathematical formulas of all…

Monday + You + Desk = The End of Yet Another Weekend.


Remember when you were the little girl and you dreamed of growing up to be the prima ballerina/big animal veterinarian who was married to David Cassidy (or Merrill Osmand) and lived on the fifty acre horse ranch located in Central Park? (Actually, you lived in the Plaza, like Eloise. The ranch was across the street.)

And then you wonder…whatever happened to David Cassidy? And so you Google him up and there he is! With the horses and the age-appropriate wife, and he seems uxorious.

And look! He is touring. And so you immediately begin to lay plans to go to Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania (wherever that is) in February. And you email you best girlfriend ever, Melissa, and start thinking about your outfit, as only the best will do for your former fantasy husband!

Pennsylvania in February? You will need fabulous boots…from Prada!

Sophisticated, worldly, intellectual Prada.

And the next thing you know you are singing to yourself, and you think that Mondays are perhaps not so bad after all.

This morning I woke up with this feeling
I didn’t know how to deal with
And so I decided to myself that I just hide it to myself
And never talk about it and didn’t I go and shout it
When you walked into the room
I think I love you, I think I love you.

    I have never bought a pair of designer shoes before. I THINK I MUST HAVE THESE SHOES!!!!!!!!!! I don’t think they would fit over my calves, but I DON’T CARE!

  2. Lisa Says:

    You know, David Cassidy is still kind of cute, for a old guy. I know I’m nowhere as cute as I was when I indulged in Eloise/David Cassidy fantasies (oh, wait, that was just yesterday), and so I can’t hold him to a higher standard.

    Thanks for brightening my Monday, dear Manolo! Such a sweet little essay.

    Old? OLD!???!!! :)

    My Lord, was I crazy about him back in the day. Even now I have this ridiculous grin on my face, and I’m not sure whether it’s due to David or the Prada boots. Maybe both. Thanks, darling Manolo.

    And the music, it was not so bad. It makes for the persistent earworm, no?

    Thus sayeth La BellaDonna, who is wearing scarlet ribbons in her hair.

  5. Kimberly Says:

    Jim Thorpe, PA, is adorable, a sea of artistic folks set in gorgeous, mountainous valleys. However, despite all the antique shops and art galleries, it is quite unpretentious, and the locals will be mad with envy at spotting Prada boots. :) Oh, and for nearby trips to Blue Mountain for tubing or skiing, you’ll need something a bit more waterproof!
