Vernal Shoes For the Poor Girl

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s internet friends has asked the Manolo the question.

Dear Manolo,

I love to look at the expensive sandals on your site, but I’m just a working girl and shoes like that are way, way, WAY out of my price range. It would take me months to save up enough to buy those shoes, as much as I would be thrilled to wear them.

So, what must I do? Can you find me some nice spring sandals for under $150?

Your internet friend forever,

Brianne

Yes, it is true, the Manolo loves to show you super fantastic shoes of great costliness, even though he knows that most of his friends will never be able to afford such luxuries; shoes that may perhaps be on one’s “bucket list”.

In the meantime, while you are accumulating great wealth by writing your elven bodice ripper (perhaps, to be entitled, The Passion of Ravenscroft, followed by the sequel, The Return of the Passion of Ravenscroft) you must still wear shoes, for you are not the hobbit who can go about in bare feets.

Of course, the Manolo, who knows what it is like to be poor, so poor that you must live in the earthen burrow beneath the Long Island Expressway like the urban hobbit, will be happy to recommend the few shoes of reasonable cost and superior attractiveness.

Franco Sarto Cool Espadrille Wedges

And when our poor girl arrives in Amagansett, she will need some wedge espadrilles, such as these, the Cool from Franco Sarto (available in six colors) to wear with her flowing sun dress.

Michael Kors Winnie Thong Sandals in Silver Metallic

And, when it comes time to head to the beach (it is 90 degrees in New York today!), our working girl will wish to glam it up the bit under her sarong, perhaps with these silver metallic thong sandals, the Winnie from Kors by Micheal Kors.

    This is precisely why I heart you, Manolo, dear.




  2. TeleriB Says:

    But the passion of the Ravenscroft was the catches, rounds and folk music of Merrie Englonde..

    …which could entirely be incorporated into the elven bodice ripper, the affinity of elves for music being well-known. I withdrawn my objection.

    The heroine, she must be named Pammelia.
