Farewell, Never teh Bride

Never teh Bride: Christa Terry

Manolo says, after six and the half years as the editor-in-chief of the Manolo for the Brides, dear friend of the Manolo, Christa Terry (a.k.a. Never teh Bride) is moving onto bigger and better things.

It’s time for me to make a difficult announcement. To indulge in a spot of cliché, I’m not sure how to say it, so I’ll just come right out with it.

I’m resigning from Manolo for the Brides and Manolo for the Home.

During my time writing for Manolo for the Brides and Manolo for the Home, I’ve grown personally and professionally. When The Manolo took a chance and hired me to be a member of his team, I was a small-time journalist and freelance writer who’d started a blog mainly to complain about a boyfriend who was unwilling to get married. Now I’m a published author who’s married and a mom, and my accomplishments at Manolo for the Brides and Manolo for the Home have been the door openers to numerous interesting and lucrative opportunities.

It is the very sad day for the Manolo, for not only has the Christa been the regular and dependable fixture in the Manolosphere, but she is also the great writer, someone who is blessed with the wonderfully entertaining and readable voice. And so, for the past six years, the Manolo has woken up each morning eagerly wanting to see what the Christa has written, and thanking the heavens that he had someone as good as her working for the peanuts the Manolo could offer.

The Manolo will miss her keenly, but knows that she will succeed at whatever writerly endeavor she undertakes.

Farewell, dear Never teh Bride!

The Manolosphere!

Manolo says, the Manolo politely reminds you that there is much entertainment to be had at the newest blogs of the Manolosphere: Crafty Manolo, Manolo for the Beauty, Green Manolo, and Manolo Jewelry are all worthy of your time and attention.

Who to Avoid the Online Knock-Off

Manolo says, our friend, Miss Plumcake, has the wise advice about how to avoid the designer fakes and the luxury phonies that proliferate on the interwebs.

Luxury houses have very specific agreements as to where their merchandise can be sold. They take the exclusivity of their product very seriously, because they know you’re buying not just the product, but the prestige. If Manolo Blahnik won’t let his merchandise be sold at Net-a-Porter, arguably the poshest online-only luxury store, because it’s not prestigious enough, you can bet your suitably luscious bippy he’s not going to give a sweeter deal to TotallyNotFakeShoesReallyWePromise.com

But there is much, much more, so you must go read the whole thing.

Entertainment at the Manolo Jewelry

Manolo says, charm bracelets, necklace bargains, January birthstones and the jewelry of the Globes of Gold, all entertaining and all available at the Manolo’s Jewelry blog.

Finding the Designer Shoe Bargains

Manolo says, our friend, Miss Plumcake gives invaluable advice on how to find beautiful shoes at the great prices.

I get a lot of people who ask me how I manage to have the things I do –particularly my shoes– with the job I have. Now ignoring for a moment that it’s kind of a rude question, I do have a bit of wisdom to share as to how I managed to amass a shoe collection worth more than what I earn in a year without hooking, selling my kidneys or getting into credit card debt. While finding thousand dollar shoes for a hundred dollars is a bit on the ambitious side of things, if you follow my lead (and learn from my mistakes) you will be well on your want to your own enviable shoe salon.

But you must immediately go and read the whole thing.
