Manolo says, one of the places the Manolo he loves to look for the super fantastic boots is at the website of the Gotham City Online.

Yes, on the one of the hands, at the Gotham City Online the sizes of the boots and the shoes available, they are frequently limited. However, on the other of the hands, the prices they are unbelievably low.

For the example, these super fantastic boots from the Coach, they have been reduced by the Gotham City over $130 of the American dollars, however, the are available only in the Americans sizes 8.5, 9, or 10.

Manolo says, there are many other bargains to be had at the Gotham City Online, from the JP Tods, and the Marc Jacobs, and the Michael Kors, and the others, however one must always be prepared to be disappointed by the capriciousness of the sizes available.

Interview With A Manolo

February 20th, 2005
By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, Look! The Manolo he has done the interview for the blog of an internet friend! Here is the taste:

You don’t sit on a perch, you are obviously involved in the industry; and yet your blogs are completely updated. How is it that you are so prolific?

The Manolo he would tell you that you should not overestimate the amount of the times the peoples in the “rag trade” they devote to the actual work. The typical day it starts at the noon with the cappuccino and the Campari, followed by the assiduous, lengthy reading of the Page Six, and then it’s off to the office to bitch on the phone with the Michael Kors about the latest of the outrages committed by the hoi and the polloi. Even with this schedule, as busy at it seems, there is still plenty of the times for the blogging.

Manolo says, go read the whole interview.



The Shoes of the Vegan

February 20th, 2005
By Manolo the Shoeblogger

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

The shoes you point out, they are indeed super-fantastic, but can you help the vegetarians of the world to find super-fantastic shoes, too?

Manolo says, this it is one of the more difficult questions for the Manolo to answer, for the Manolo he truly loves the leather. He loves the look of the leather, he loves the texture of the leather, he loves the smell of the new leather, and above all he loves the way the leather it makes the most beautiful shoes.

But, the Manolo he also loves his many internet friends, and he tries to help them however odd their desires they might be.

If the friend of the Manolo she is indeed interested in the shoes of the couture, then he would advice his friend to look at the shoes of the Stella McCartney. She does not use the leather.

Manolo says, this shoe from the Stella not only is it made out of the cloth and the plastic and the rubber, but it is also quite stylish.

The same it can be said of this sandal below.

Even the belts and the gloves of the Stella McCartney they are not made of the leather.

Manolo says for the person who would avoid the leather, yet who still wishes to look good, the options they are indeed limited.

Better than the greasepaint of the clown.At least Kagami tried to be interesting.

Manolo says, If these they are the clothes of the future, the Manolo he does not want to live that long.



Prada at the Sam’s Clubs?

February 20th, 2005
By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, here is the article that it sounds too ridiculous to be true.

My name is Aime Palmer, and I am a sucker for wholesale goods. Sam’s Club is my mecca — but not just for those fab mini quiches and the fresh salsa I serve at every other party.

My Waterford crystal? Sam’s. My Stag’s Leap Merlot? Sam’s. My Prada wallet? Sam’s.

They also generally carry Fendi and Prada handbags and small goods, Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses, Ferragamo and Dooney & Bourke accessories and designer fragrances (not to mention loads of bling bling) at prices seriously lower than department stores.

My Prada wallet? $154. Not very frugal, I know. But -ista in my dictionary means getting it for more than $50 less than average department store prices, a phenomenon that makes me all warm and tingly inside.

Manolo shouts, Ayyyyyyyy! The Apocalypse, she is upon us!



Shopping Like the Starlet in the Los Angeles

February 19th, 2005
By Manolo the Shoeblogger

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.
