Manolo says, after much deliberation the Manolo has finally selected the winner of the latest episode of the Manolo’s Build the Outfit contest, and there it is above, the winning ensemble put together by the Manolo’s internet friend Rachel.
Here the Rachel, talking about her entry.
I’d go with a short dress to show off the over-the-knee boots. The ribbed tights make the leg look even longer. The earrings and bag complement the blues of the dress. And the coat, I just love the coat. I was going to go for a hat, too. But as I pictured the long-legged girl wearing the ensemble hurrying down the streets of Manhattan to meet friends for an informal party, I just knew she wouldn’t want to ruin her look with hat hair.
For the Manolo it was the very colorful short dress that made this outfit. Tall, dark, and handsome boots like these require a the short dress, so that the tiniest bit of thigh might be shown. The splash of color here enlivens the boots and makes what could be somber, more festive.
For her winning effort the Rachel will receive the $100 worth of credit at the
Heels.com, the brand new online shopping venue, one that brings the Web 2.0 to help with the search for the perfect pair of heels.
