Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s many internet friends has asked the Manolo the question.
I have been graciously given a few coupons to use at Zappos.com But they are the “act fast or expire” kind. So armed with my new bonus of $70, I would like to find some neutral (bone, taupe, tan,bronze) strappy sandals.
I can probably put a few extra dollars onto it (70+150 or so) but am wondering which of their lot is
1) not matronly
2) not too high
so I wonder, if the Manolo of the Shoeblogs.com would be so kind as to assist me.
Manolo says, the coupons! The friend of the Manolo is indeed most lucky. Here are three pairs of the super fantastic shoes that the Manolo thinks would be worth the wearing.
When the Manolo he thinks of the comfortable sandals of strappiness, he must indeed think of the Stuart Weitzman. This color, it is called the “gold matte lame”. Do not ask the Manolo how the “lame” it can also at the same of the time be “matte”. It sounds to the Manolo like the dangerous combination of the opposing materials, like the meeting of the matter and the anti-matter. Whatever, are they not indeed most pretty?
This one from the Charles David it is the simple and the classic choice, and in the color “camel kid” less dangerous than the “matte lame”.
Finally, here is this beautiful shoe from the Delman. It is the little more elaborate, but it is also, in the humble opinion of the Manolo, stunning.
Manolo says, the first holiday weekend of the summer it is here, and so the girl she needs the sandals for the trip to the shore to celebrate the arrival of the new season.
This limey-greeny shoe from the Beverly Feldman it is has the bow made of the rafia that makes the Manolo think of late afternoon, beach-side cocktails in the Hamptons.
This sandal from the Donald J. Pliner, it has the flat heel that makes it most suitable for the beach, but with the beaded flower on the upper, it will make you stand out from the rude masses wearing the plastic flip-flops.
And either of these, would they not look good with the pareo or the sarong?
Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s many internet friends has asked the Manolo the question
I am chairman of a black tie charity ball to be held in a few weeks…I love the charity, but I’m not the black tie type and have trouble putting together a look, beyond a pair of 501’s, white t-shirt, and tretorns.
I will be wearing a beautiful (albeit a few seasons old) couture Jill Sander evening gown, (bought after a drunken lunch in SF) black silk sheath w/ boatneck, 3/4 sleeves, gorgeous fit…(reminds me of Jackie Kennedy)…I do have a nice pair of Weitzman silk pumps, but they look too staid with such a conservative dress… could you recommend a pair of evening sandals or pumps that could “sex up” this dress? The dress is really fitted, and pretty hot, even with the sleeves and covered bosom.
Manolo says, this it is exactly the sort of the question that the Manolo he can really sink the teeth into. Picking the beautiful shoes for the fancy party, it is perhaps one of his most favorite things to do in the whole world.
This gorgeous shoe by the Claudia Ciuti it has been christened with the ridiculous name of “Otis”, like the town drunk in the Mayberry RFD. However, despite this, this shoe it is in the humble opinion of the Manolo the perfect thing for the party of the black tie.
Here is the simple but most beautiful shoe from the Charles David. The ring of the crystals on the strap will add the needed sparkle to the black ensemble.
Finally, the Manolo he must recommend this stunning shoe from the Donna Karan. Notice how the addition of the simple ankle strap “sexes” this shoe up. Not only is it most beautiful, but it is now on the sale, it is still not “cheap” but it is 50% off of the usual price.
The Manolo he is most certain that his friend she will indeed be the belle of the charity ball!
Manolo says, the most common question in the email of the Manolo it is from the poor girls asking the Manolo to find them the shoes worth the wearing at the low price.
As the Manolo he has said, in many of the times of the past, the poor girl she should save her moneys until she can afford the truly super fantastic shoes. But, of the course, the poor girl she cannot go about without the shoes on her feets, because for one of the reasons at the restaurants it is always “no shirts, no shoes, no way the Jose”.
Likewise the Manolo, he knows what it is like to be poor, so poor that you must make your own super fantastic (although somewhat impractical) shoes out of the pieces of broken pottery you have laboriously glued to the tops of the carpet slippers you found in the trash outside of the rest home.
And so the Manolo he has picked out three pairs of the shoes from the Kenneth Cole. They are all on the sale at the GothamCityOnline; all of them they selling for less than $70 of the American dollars.
Manolo says, yes these are the inexpensive shoes made in the China. However, they are sporty and not costly. (The thong at the bottom it is on the sale for only $30 of the American dollars.)
These shoes, in the estimation of the Manolo, they are good enough for the poor girl to wear to the laundromat until she can save the moneys for the most super fantastic shoes.
