Tina from Salvatore Ferragamo for the Tuesday

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, it is Tuesday and you will not be at your desk this day, for you must attend the three-day strategy planning conference held at the world headquarters of the InEmTechCoCorp, Inc.

To say that you are not looking forward to this is the understatement. Three days of the tediously protracted committee meetings, filled with blather and jargon, and fueled by over-roasted coffee and free-floating angst. The toadies will toady, the vice presidents will preen, and you will be forced to pretend to pay attention to the proceedings.

No doodling for you! Sit up straight! The Vice President in Charge of Forward-Thinking Strategic Planning Strategy is giving the presentation!

You will tap listlessly on your electro-tablet iThingy as this besuited buffoon talks about how he took charge and strategically planned the corporate plan for strategy, while his toadies nod their heads.

Maybe, just for the second, you can mentally slip away…

“Manolo,” you whisper to yourself, “quick, show me the shoes!”

Tina from Salvatore Ferragamo

Here is the Tina from the Salvatore Ferragamo. Simple, elegant, restrained, handsome.

    Gorgeous, and actually wearable by a woman of a certain age. I bought a pair of Ferragamos after taking a new job that requires not only attending many meetings of the sort Manolo describes, but also schlepping across town to get to them. I liked them so much I got another. These babies will last me until retirement.

    Im a new designer and i think i have a big shot at making it…My styles are unique but taste full i tend to like vintage looks mixed with modern raw styles. Take a look at my website and tell me what you think. At the moment i do custom pieces but with the right help and guidance i hope to be a top shoe designer.

    My early training at the satellite branch of Breeding Spleen Academy prepared me for this type marathon meeting. The Sisters of the Scared Spleen provided me with the mental fortitude to withstand these conferences with ease. I never doddle, snooze or chit-chat. I do not even fidget. I however can be mentally far far away but somehow appear to be present. Finally I have never feared a boss like a I did those nuns because lets face it a boss can only fire me but a nun can send my soul to hell for passing notes to Mary Catherine Francis during Mass.

    Beautiful shoes as always!

    I think that the shoes are just a classic! It doesnt have so much frills but then you could see the elegance and sophistication when one wears it.

    Why no comments open on the post about the oil field boots?

  6. Manolo the Shoeblogger Says:

    It is because the Manolo pushed the wrong button on his blog. Many apologies. It is now fixed.

  7. Pantofi Says:

    Classic shoes, a must have for a woman of a certain age!
