Manolo says, at this very moment, the thoughts, the prayers, and the hopes of the Manolo they are with the people of London, and with his many internet friends in the UK.


Manolo says, nothing makes the Manolo smile like the visit from the funky little fashion troll, John Galliano.

Yes, the Manolo he likes to poke the gentle fun at the Galliano himself, yet at the same of the time, the Manolo he must confess that there is in some of the creations of the Galliano the ridiculous, ethereal, unwearable beauty.

For the example.

Ridiculous! Beautiful!

It is ridiculous! It is beautiful! It is Galliano!

The Manolo he is so confused.

Manolo says, here you see, in the single pretty shoe from the Charles David, the two of the seasons trends–the flowers on the shoe, and the color of the bronze–together.

The Naming of the Shoes

Manolo says, someone other than the Manolo has noticed that the way the designers of the shoes name their particualar shoes, it is frequently more than somewhat ridiculous.

The Manolo himself, he has often been puzzled by this, something he has talked about on more than one of the occasions.

What the Manolo is…

Manolo says, it is late on the Tuesday evening, but here is what the Manolo is…




Listening to…

Eagerly Awaiting the Release of…

The talk of the Uncle Kimono it has made the Manolo want to rewatch some of the Manolo’s favorite movies of the John Malkovich. He is, in the humble opinion of the Manolo, the particular sort of the genius, one whose work is always worth the watching.

Manolo says, Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich, Uncle Kimono?

Shoes for the Island Girl

Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s many internet friends has asked the Manolo the question.

I am a girl and I work in an office on a small tropical island. My dress is casual, living on an island as I do, and I like to wear shoes – sandals – that I can walk around in easily. I also like to wear shoes that have big platform soles, as I am not exactly what you would call a big girl. Indeed, you might even call me petite.

Can you recommend a nice sandal that is comfortable to walk in, is good-looking enough to be seen in, is suitable for a casual though professional workplace, and is entallening as well?

The first piece of the advice the Manolo he would have for his friend is that as the girl of petiteness she should not wear the too big of the platform shoes, lest she risk looking like the Minnie Mouse.

Then, having said that, here are three pairs of the shoes that the Manolo likes for his friend.

This shoe from the Charles David, it has the “micro” platform, and the Manolo he has the opinion that the beige it is suitable for the islands.

Circa by Joan & David - Pazzo (Coral)   Manolo Likes!  Click!

This sandal from the Joan and the David, it is in the color “coral”. Is this not most appropriate for the islands?

KORS by Michael Kors - Pearl (Luggage Vacchetta) - Women's

Finally, the Manolo he would recommend this from the Michael Kors, with it’s wood and leather as the natural materials for the natural surroundings.

Normally, the Manolo he would not recommend such things for the office of the work place, but in this case, the island breezes they blow casual.
