The Shoelacing

Manolo says, the Manolo he has been meaning to post the link to this super fantastic and super obsessive site of the shoelaces, every since he first discovered it at the blog of his internet friend the Danish Shoeblogger.

Fourteen Maids of the Bride!

Manolo says, so the crazy Georgia bride she just up and ran away before the wedding.

A Georgia bride-to-be who vanished just days before her wedding turned up in New Mexico and fabricated a tale of abduction before admitting Saturday that she got cold feet and “needed some time alone,” police said.

Jennifer Wilbanks, 32, was in police custody more than 1,420 miles from her home on what was supposed to be her wedding day Saturday.

“It turns out that Miss Wilbanks basically felt the pressure of this large wedding and could not handle it,” said Randy Belcher, the police chief in Duluth, Ga., the Atlanta suburb where Wilbanks lives with her fiance. He said there would be no criminal charges.

Far be it from the Manolo to be the person to cast the stone at this poor woman, and her crazy fleeing ways, however, this detail it caught the eye of the Manolo.

The wedding was going to be a huge bash. The couple had mailed 600 invitations, and the ceremony was to feature 14 bridesmaids and 14 groomsmen.

Fourteen maids of the bride! This it is madness!

By the comparison, the Princess Diana she only had five maids of the bride. The Jackie O. when she was the Jackie B. and married the JFK, she had only ten of the maids of the bride.

Manolo says, although the Manolo he is usually in favor of the opulence and the luxury, it is nonetheless the rule of the Manolo that if the girl she feels the need to have more than ten maids of the bride–more than the Jackie O. (nee B.) needed to marry the JFK–she should not be getting married.

Perhaps this rule it sounds too harsh, but it has been the experience of the Manolo that for the girls who demand the most super gigantic of the fairytale weddings, the wedding itself frequently becomes more important than the marriage.

This it is not to say that the big wedding it is in itself bad, but rather it is to say that for the bride who demands the perfect day of the wedding, to the point of either inciting the hatred of those around them, or to the point of wanting to runaway and leave the poor parents thinking she has been murdered, something it is wrong.

The wedding day it is to be the day of joy, and its approach should be greeted with the gladness and the earnest longing for its arrival. If the planning of the wedding has become the ordeal to be endured one must step back and reconsider the necessity of the fourteen maids of the brides.

The Nervous Despot

The Tyrant and The Saint

Manolo says, the tyrant he is old. Does he not look most uncomfortable under the confident, watchful gaze of the photographic John Paul?

As the end it approaches for this evil man, he must worry that there is the special place reserved for those who would deny the super fantastic shoes to others.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

Manolo says to his peeps, Happy Easter!

Shopping Like the Starlet in the Los Angeles

Manolo says, here is the sound advice about shopping for the clothes if you are in the Los Angeles. The Manolo, he knows the LA and the Santa Monica and the Malibu well, and he can attest that many of these shops, they are indeed super fantastic.

For those who know the fashion in the LA, one of the most important street it is not the Rodeo Drive, but the La Brea, which is where you will find many of the good shops, especially the Diavolina for the shoes, one of the Manolo’s favorites.

Another of the good streets for the shopping (and the looking at the stars of the Hollywood) is the Montana in the Santa Monica.

By the way, among the many people whom the Manolo counts as the internet friends are the peoples who run this new business of genius, one which would be useful if you are in the Los Angeles for the shopping.

Now Smell This!

Manolo shouts, Perfume Blogging!

A Tale Told by An Idiot

Manolo says, full of sound and fury. Signifying nothing.

The Bag Crazy

Manolo says, the Manolo he cannot but recommed to you this blog about the handbags. The Cranky Biscuit, who is the blogger in the charge, she is both the funny and the super fantastic.

Tres Gros Pieds

Manolo says, here is the article reporting that the feets of the French girls, they are growing.

The average French foot has grown by three centimetres in the past 40 years, and the French now buy more shoes, mostly made in Asia, than any other nation barring the United States, a new survey said.

The average shoe size for a French woman has risen from a 37 to a 40 (a seven in Britain and Australia, and a seven and half in the US), said the survey by the Centre Technique Cuir (Technical Leather Centre).

The French also now buy an average of 5.3 pairs of shoes a year, compared with 4.8 in the rest of Europe. The Americans remain the top buyers, treating themselves to 6.3 pairs of new shoes a year.

Manolo says, yes the Americans they buy many pairs of the shoes. Unfortunately, they have not all read the blog of the Manolo, else they would all know that it is not quantity of the shoes that is important, but the quality.

It is the rule of the Manolo that twenty pairs (Ha! one hundred pairs!) of the shoes from the Walmart does not equal one pair of these.
