Things That Confuse the Manolo: Cantaloupe Belts

Cantaloupe Belts, LOL WUT?

Manolo says, they do not look like they will fit around the average-sized cantaloupe.

German Engineering at Its Finest

Manolo says, for some reason, this video of the Porsche Ferdinand GT3 RS makes the Manolo laugh.

Memorial Day

In Flanders Field the poppies blow

In Flanders Field…

Laughing Babies!!!

Manolo says, this is perhaps the happiest, most heart-warmingest video the Manolo has seen all month.

Manolo’s Tuesday Miscellany

Manolo says, here are the few links which may perhaps amuse…

I think I’ve discovered what gets into professional, well-educated, usually composed women when they sniff out a pair of pointy-toed, strappy-heeled bits of Italian leather.

Single men, forget all the things you hear from Maxim and Stuff about how to pick up a chick.

This is one of the beautiful thing about subcultures, how fashion can transcend money or social status to thread together individuals who may not have anything in common.

Zebra Skin Diving Suit

Manolo says, “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the zebra and the dolphin together; and a little child shall lead them.”

The Southern California Fires

Manolo says, the Manolo has been driven to absolute distraction and despair by the fires raging in Southern California.

Thus far, the Manolo’s Malibu summer place has survived the raging fire, although the flames are said to have come within yards, before retreating.

Much more worrisome than the property, however, are fates of the Manolo’s many, many friends in Malibu and the rest of Southern California.

Earlier this afternoon, Glinda at the Teeny Manolo, who lives in Orange County, sent the Manolo this following message.

Our power has been out since 10:30pm last night, and it isn’t looking good. I’m typing this at the library. The winds here are incredibly bad, trees are knocked over everywhere and basically it is like living in a hurricane. They clocked the wind speed in the canyon we live in at 85mph. So, we are not sure when our power is going to be restored, and we may have to relocate for the night if the power is not back on soon. We’ve already probably lost all the food in our fridge. It is too hot to stay in our house, and we can’t open the windows up because ash is being blown everywhere due to all the brush fires that surround us on three sides. Fun times.

And now the Manolo must ask that his many internet friends please keep Glinda and her family, and indeed all of our many friends in Southern Calfornia, in their prayers and thoughts as this disaster continues.

The Spinning Dancer Explained

Manolo says, last week the Manolo posted the link to the optical-illusion that supposedly tested whether one was left-brained or right-brained.

It turns out that the actual explanation of why she seems to spin one way, and then the other, is much more interesting.

As fashionistas know, Chanel always did love a good sleeve!

All the advice on talking to your daughter about the onset of puberty from a faceless mega-corporation you could ever ask for!

Manolo’s Monday Miscellany

Manolo says, here are the few links which may perhaps amuse…

Sometimes window shopping is- and should be- enough. As Mama Janey used to say, “How many purses can you carry at one time?”

Whether you’re a literary fan or just want to look like a fashion snob in-the-know, the cape is fall’s it outerwear of choice.

Minus the millions of social networking sites, porn and endless e-mail forwards, the internet is damned wonderful.

They stirred images of Rosie the Riveter and I just wanted a way to wind-proof my hair, really.

Driven by its native contemporary brands, L.A. is experiencing a fashion renaissance.

Hattastic!

Manolo’s Friday Miscellany

Manolo says, here are the few links which may perhaps amuse…

Be sure your guests know what to expect!

As much as I’ve been going on and on about how hot short shorts are recently, there is an occasion when I don’t find them so hot.

I’ve never even seen one wedding dress that I like before, let alone four that I love.
