Manolo says, it is summer! Do something fun, like wearing these lighthearted sandals, the Cordy from the Stuart Weitzman, while strolling this evening down by the waterfront with that young swain you met at the farmers market.
Manolo says, here are the few amusing things to help you while the time…
Manolo is one of our people. (Manolo loves the shoes!)
I’m not some pathetic football widow, jumping on her boyfriend’s sports bandwagon though. Many moons ago, I waitressed at the Highbury football ground and served David Seaman and Thierry Henry a drink or two.
Pastels, platforms and intricate, swirly flourishes in rich suede dominate the whimsical collection. These are definitely not shoes for the shy.
Manolo says, fool the Manolo five times, shame on the Manolo.
This is the problem that the Manolo has with the movies of the Wes Anderson: the advertising always promises that the movie will be most hilarious. (Indeed, what could be funnier than Bill Murray and Bruce Willis playing the pair of old codgers?) And yet, the Manolo can assure you from hard-won experience that, at best, this new movie will be only mildly amusing.
Yes, it will be twee, so very, very, very twee. With the twee costuming, and the twee mood setting, and the twee music.
Will it be funny? Not so much.
Instead, it will be largely annoying.
Manolo says, this morning, the Manolo sent out the email to all of the subscribers to his Super Fantastic Newsletter, asking those internet friends who have been away to please come back and visit the blog again.
And now, the Manolo sees that many of these old friends have returned, to which the Manolo can only say, Thank You! You were missed and we are glad you are back. Join in the conversation, your comments are always the valuable part of what is done here.
But above all else: Welcome Back!
Manolo says, today the summer officially arrives, and what could be more summery than these ridiculously cheerful and cheerfully ridiculous taffeta gingham platform sandals from the Miu Miu?
Too often are we required to wear serious clothing that conveys importance and sobriety. Too infrequently are we free to dress in ways that are expressive of joy.
It is summer, and we need the sort of happy-silly shoe that makes both the those who wear it and those who see it worn giddy with joy. Be joyful, wear happy shoes!
Manolo says, here is Dizzie from Charles by Charles David, the classic suede pump that would look most super fantastic with the pencil skirt and the properly sassy attitude. Incredibly, they are selling for the mere $19.99, nearly 80% off of the regular price! Hurry!
Manolo the Church Lady says, well, isn’t that special.
The reality star, 31, compared herself to the Virgin Mary in an episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” that aired Monday night.
While at dinner, Kardashian expressed her interest in artificial insemination to a group of friends, including her sister Kourtney’s long-time boyfriend, Scott Disick.
“I think if I’m 40 and I don’t have any kids and I’m not married, I would have a baby artificially inseminated,” she told Scott. “I would feel like Mary — like Jesus is my baby.”
Allow the Manolo to suggest the more appropriate Biblical lady…
Manolo says, here are the few links which may amuse and/or delight…
Not only could she be manipulative and destructive in matters of the heart, especially together with her companion Eros, but her domain extended far beyond desire and romance.
Truly bespoke shoes are like commissioned works of art, and as such, they are costly – Caroline’s prices start from £1800, but the results are absolutely stunning.
It has been quite disconcerting to observe the ease in which she has figured out all of the electronic devices in our home.
Manolo says, here, to make up for the two previous posts, is the Serafina flat sandal from the Loeffler Randall, the charmingly yellow, summery, innocently cheerful sandal that can restore your faith in humanity and it its accomplishments.
With these on your feets, how could you be anything less than happy?
Manolo says, speaking of the sort of peoples whose stage name might easily be Mercedes Luv, the Manolo presents to you the English media personality Jodie Marsh. (Imagine Tila Tequila without the talent.)
And now, just by looking at the above picture, the Manolo encourages you to imagine what sort of shoes this person might wear to accentuate this outfit…
The answer is below the fold… Continue Reading…
