Boots for the Snow

Manolo says, several of the Manolo’s internet friends have asked the Manolo the questions on the topic of the boots for the cold.

You and I both see eye to eye when it comes to the horror that is The Uggs. However, living in the Boston area, and having just suffered through a major blizzard, I wondered…what’s a stylish girl to do about winter boots? I have dressy leather boots for going out in the winter, but those are not appropriate for the shoveling…

Is it just a situation where I have to wear the ugly, but warm and dry “boots of the duck” whilst I shovel away, and just change out of them as soon as I can? Or are there anymore stylish options out there that I am missing? Hiking boots don’t really work in 3 feet of snow…

Here is the second question.

My question for you is this: I know that the Ugg boots are not super fantastic, yet, they are shoes of such warmth for me in my cold Canadian climate. On a cold day, putting my feet into a pair of Uggs makes me feel super fantastic, yet, I know that I look ridiculous, as I am not a 12 year old Asian girl (who, as you have said, are the only people by whom the Uggs should be worn). Do you have any suggestions for a pair of super fantastic, and yet also very warm, boots for my cold feets?

Manolo says, first the Manolo he would answer this question by saying that if the first friend of the Manolo she is shovelling the snows, then the fashion of the boot, it is not of the primary importance. The comfort in the cold and the proof against the water, they are indeed the primary concerns.

However, if the purpose of the shoe is to merely walk in the cold and the snow, rather than shovel, than the Manolo he would recommend one of these boots to you.

Manolo says, this boot it is from the Ugg! But it does not make the Manolo roll his eyes in the disgust. Yes, it is somewhat masculine in the form, but the shape and the color it pleases the Manolo.

Like the Ugg boot, this boot from the Rockport(!) it is lined with the shearling and it is smart.

Finally, here is the tall boot with the shearling and the leather straps from the Born. Yes, the straps they look too complex, but to the Manolo, the effect of going behind the calfs it is amusing.

Manolo says, one of the things the Manolo he asks of the winter boots is the practicality, that they are functional before they are stylish. The feets they must be kept warm, and the tread it must prevent the falling on the ice.

However, at the same of the time, these boots they are more than just functional. They have as much of the style as can be expected in the boots of the harsh season.

Manolo says, is it just the Manolo, or has anyone else noticed that the Mr. Lopez (formerly Marc Anthony) is looking like the zombie since the marrying of the J-Lo?

The Shoes on the eBay

The Vera Wang and Her Leggings

The Vera Wang and Her Leggings

Manolo says, here is the picture of the Vera Wang. As you can see she dresses as so many of the designers of the fashion they do, in the costume of the nearly all black.

The Manolo he does not approve of this.

To the Manolo the designer she is saying that her clothes they they are not capable of the wearing by the people of the everydayness, or if one is not the super model thin.

In the fact, the Vera Wang she designs the beautiful garments, and the Vera herself she is the cutie. So why must she adopt this atrocious downtown style, with the hideous leggings, no of the less?

Yes, this outfit it is functional, and no of the doubt comfortable, but it is not flattering to the Vera.

Here again, we must take as our muse the Miuccia, who is not afraid to wear her own creations to the shows of the fashion.

Miuccia is our muse!Miuccia is our muse!Miuccia is our muse!

Manolo says, the Miuccia she is our muse!
