Manolo says, here is something to make your July Thursday afternoon more pleasant, the snappy wedge-heeled, espadrille sandals from the Burberry.
Manolo says, here is the handsome pair of the Burberry sandals, the exact sort of thing you would see down at the country club, on the feet of that toned, WASPy, blonde woman with the handsome blue-eyed children who excel squash. But look! It is on the sale, more than 40% off of the regular price! Soon, you, too, shall be able to call your eldest son “Biff” with impunity.
Manolo says, the weekend, it has almost arrived, and you have the big plans, oh yes, you, Little Miss Quiet-in-the-Corner, have the big plans, very big plans, indeed: dining, dancing, canoodling, the whole romantic magilla.
But, you will need shoes, beautiful simple shoes that will perfectly accent the simple pale dress you have selected for this evening of amour.
Look! Burberry platform sandals, in the mysterious “smoked trench” color! Perfect!
Manolo says, the Manolo cannot say exactly why, but the Manolo finds these leather and suede Burberry ankle booties oddly compelling.
Perhaps it is the au courant, militaristic, puttees-and-combat-boots look that the Manolo is responding to. On the one of the hands, the five inch heel is outrageous, but, on the other of the hands, the khaki leather with the straps and buckles is familiar and Burberryish, something that would certainly go with the iconic trench coat.
Meanwhile, the black version of this shoe does not particularly move the Manolo to appreciation.
Yea, or nay, dear internet friends, yea or nay?
Manolo says, it is spring! Time for the espadrilles to return, just like the swallowing birds to San Juan Capistrano.
And if you wish to have fun on your feets, then these Confetti Hearts Wedge Espadrilles are the funnest of springy shoes, and completely unlike the usual thing from Burberry.
And if the hearts are perhaps too literal the expression of your joy, then these tea rose colored wedge espadrilles from Burberry may be just the thing.
Manolo says, behold! Beautiful and unusual platform sandals from Burberry in the handsome dark nickel color, but that name? What does it mean? Tonal…Check…Perspex?
It sounds less like something you would wear on your feets and more like the DARPA super secret squirrel project.
