For All The Saints (okay, just one, but he’s fabulous)

Thursday, November 1st, 2012
By Miss Plumcake

A little Yves Saint Laurent for All Saints Day. Yes, I coordinate my designers with the liturgical calendar. Don’t judge me, I’m pretty sure I’m the only person to play Jesus while wearing a pair of oxblood Christian Lacroix sandals with a cream crocodile sculpted heel. In your face, Jim Caviezel!


Click the images for links. Sadly, the heels –could you die over those emerald soles?– don’t come in size elephant foot, but anyone who wears size 10 and below is in luck.

Manolo says, at the Manolo Jewelry, our friend La Petite Acadienne discusses the importance of the moonstone.

In India, moonstone is regarded as a sacred stone. It is believed to bring good fortune. And really, couldn’t we all use more good fortune in 2011?

Manolo says, Christmas is about to crash upon the shore of your life like the giant rogue wave, and you have not yet completed your list. Happily, the humble shoeblogger is here to help with the few last minute stuffers for the stockings.

Timex Core Easy Reader Watch

Young Man, Aged 17 to 30: “What is this?”

You: “A Timex Core Easy Reader Wrist Watch

Young Man: “A wrist what?”

You: “A wrist watch. It’s like a man bracelet that tells you what time it is. It’s very retro.”

Young Man: “Cool. Like something one of those old time dudes, like Brando, or Sinatra, or George Clooney would wear.”

You: “Exactly, more or less.”

Young Man: “Cool, very cool.”

Family Member Living in Omaha: “Did we ever!”

You: “So, so, you liked it?”

Family Member Living in Omaha: “Marcy said it was just like you to come up with such an unusual gift. For me, just the picture reminded me of that weekend the three of us drove from Boston to Maine to visit L.L.Bean. ”

You: “That was fun.”

Family Member Living in Omaha: “We’re really looking forward to the meal. Why don’t you fly out here and eat it with us? Don’t you have some time off in January?”

Young Person: “Oh, wow, that’s funny.”

You: “Try it for a couple of weeks.”

Young Person: “Okay, I will.”

Manolo says, to be counted among the things the Manolo does not understand is this, the Reverse Eternity Ring, made of platinum and containing two carats of diamonds hidden inside the band.

All the Manolo can do when presented with such wrong-headed objects is cite to you the scripture Luke 11:33

P.S. Via the Manolo’s internet friend Chloe at the blog Her Accessories.
