Manolo says, it is the Monday before the Thanksgiving and because the holiday season is abbreviated this year, you have already begun the Christmas shopping, which is apparently what everyone has done, because when you went out to the mall to do some malling over the weekend, everyone was there. The mobs have turned out in full force, fighting over the same toys and electronic geegaws.
Of course, as bad as it was this past weekend, it will be nothing compared to the horror that is the Black Friday, when entire families lose their senses, and leave their homes at midnight, venturing forth to save the few dollars on things that they do not need.
The Manolo says, let Thanksgiving be the day of giving proper thanks, not the warm-up period for the start of the consumer glut. Let us remember what we already have before we add to the collection.
This is why the Manolo was indeed most happy to see that the Nordstroms is refusing to put up the Christmas decorations until the Thanksgiving is over, which is the tiny, small victory for tradition and proper order.
Speaking of the tradition, what could be more traditional than the pair of riding boots? Here (via the Daniel Footwear) is the Adina from Michael Kors.
Classic styling and the good looks from Michael Kors that will have you looking completely pulled together, like someone who knows the correct order of the holidays.
