Miu Miu Glitter & Suede Bow Peep-Toe Ankle Boots For the Monday

Manolo says, it is Monday, over halfway through the summer of your discontent, and frankly you feel as if you are trapped on the treadmill of life. Five days the week it is exactly the same thing, up and out the door to work, up and out the door to work, up and out the door to work… lather, rinse, and repeat.

Sadly, the weekends offer little respite from the repetitive drudgery of the week. On Saturday you must take care of the house, and do the laundry, and the shopping, and perhaps mow the lawn. Then Sunday, it is up and out the door to the church, followed by Sunday afternoon, the saddest part of the week, tainted as it is by the foreknowledge of what awaits you on the Monday morning.

Worse, on Sundays you are always made aware that this discontent you suffer is in vaguely immoral.

Indeed, in the church on Sunday morning, as you listened to the report from the mission team in South Sudan you knew just how lucky you were to be you. Any of those South Sudanese would instantly trade their flyblown huts and dung fires for your 2008 Toyota Camry, your colonial 3/2 in the suburbs, and your 40-hour-the-week job at the ImTechCom, Inc.

And yet, knowledge of your good fortune does little to make you feel better about how your life is going. Such is the modern world, no? Discontent and good fortune marching hand-in-hand.

Well, at the least there are beautiful and unusual shoes to take us out of ourselves for the briefest instant…

Miu Miu Glitter and Suede Bow Pumps

Unusual shoes such as the Glitter & Suede Bow Ankle Boots from Miu Miu, which surely must be the work of divine providence.

    The Manolo needs to stop trolling my innermost thoughts for the Monday-back-at-your-desk posts!!

    Your colourway is terrific for Monday; the combination in the link was what I craved on Friday past:

    I’d strut in these boots through Game of Thrones, Hunger Games, and Babylon 5. How fantastic would that be? Love.

    I usually have a rule of not liking peep toe booties. However rules are meant to be broken and I love these boots. Also I am glad to be not the only adult female dreaming of what they would wear if somehow transported to Kings Landing. Yes I see myself prancing about in those boots, some sort of silk gown, draped in various dead animal pelts, elaborate braided hair, crown and of course, a sword, a really big one. Hmmm … next Monday I may just go to work dressed as a Game of Thrones character. That would certainly end the cycle and give the office something to remember me by.

    You do sound so sad Manolo.

    This is such a sad post. Shoes should not be the only highlight in your life. If you are so unhappy you should get a better job and stop going to church for a few weeks. Your spirits needs a little help. Good Luck.

    If I were a rich heiress, Moroccan princess, or just very, very irresponsible – rather than a broke college student – I would buy these in an instant. One can dream…
