Prada Crisscross Platform Sandal for the Monday

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, it is Monday and you are back at your desk doing that thing that you do to make that money that you need to keep you from living beneath that bridge alongside the road.

“When did it become so difficult,” you ask yourself, perhaps rhetorically, “to eke out the living?”

And then you feel sorry for yourself, because all of your first-world problems are weighing you down:

For the example, you need the new washer and dryer, because the old set is seven years old, and does not feature the latest next generation, electronic time-delay cycle technology, which means that you must physically be present to push the button that turns on the actual washing machine, instead of setting it so that the cycle starts later, thus ending when you are around to put the clothes into the dryer. Without this magical 21st Century feature, you have to be there in person when the cycle ends to immediately put the clothes into the dryer, lest they acquire that moldy smell from sitting in the washer, damp.

And frankly, this morning you find this intolerable, mainly because you are catching the strange whiff of moldiness from your hair, which you dried this morning with the towel that had sat in the washer tub much of yesterday afternoon while you were at brunch.

Meanwhile, somewhere in southeast Asia, the woman who is exactly your age, to the day, squats by the muddy brown river, beating her family’s clothing on the large rock.

And, ayyyy! Look at how toned her upper arms are!

You would have to spend many hours at the gym to get that sexy arm definition, being hectored by the blonde airhead who directs the SculptZumYogaBo class.

And this thought has made you even more dolorous.

Look! Beautiful shoes!

    Hmmm … a little too retro for my taste.




  2. The formerly shoe-obsessed Wayne Says:

    Love the color and the shine of the leather…love the platform…hate the price ($790); but then, they ARE Pradas.




  3. Ed Lopez Says:

    …yet the lady by the brown river will doubtlessly envy the sexy, toned, defined calves of the first-world woman who regularly beats pavement with heels like these.




  4. Rebelle Says:

    “I guess I’ll go on home it’s late. There’ll be tomorrow night but wait…what do I see…..” Yeah, Roy, she’s wearing those Prada sandals.




  5. venus velvet Says:

    What a gorgeous cherry lacquer for fall! Alas, the price would only make me more disconsolate.




  6. bookgirl Says:

    hahaha “SculptZumYogaBo class” I think I have taken that class. Of course afterwards I was unable to reach down and buckle my shoes, or to bend over at all




  7. Zaggora Girl Says:

    We’re not sure about the shape of the heels. However with Prada you can never go wrong!
