Manolo says, fashion by Emmett Kelly
Now for the serious moment. This look it puzzles the Manolo. What is its purpose? What is the designer of this hoping to say? Is it, as is so much of the conceptual fashion, the sad, desperate cry for the attention? The tears of the clown, so to speak?
And if it is the attempt for the attention, why is this model’s frock so perfectly Soviet Lunch Lady utilitarian? Why is the face paint of the clown not matched with the clothes that are more outrageous.
This it is the failure on all counts, except that of bringing ridicule onto the head of the designer, DaviDelfin. Judge for yourself, here are more of the pictures.
Manolo says, look at this picture, at these poor Cuban women who must stand outside the glass looking at the shoes they cannot buy!
This man Castro, he makes the Manolo angry because he denies to the Cuban peoples who do not have the American dollars the right to buy the super fantastic shoes!
Yes, it is true, the Manolo he is the running capitalist pig-dog. He loves the Capitalism and how the market it delivers the beautiful goods to the peoples, and how it makes the work of the good designers valuable. Manolo loves this like he loves his own dear sainted Granny.
Beautiful shoes for everyone! Death to the tyrant who would deny the peoples the beautiful shoes! This it is the political philosophy of the Manolo.
Manolo says, it is no secret that the Manolo, before the Manolo he bacame the super fantastic shoe blogger, he was the poor boy, so poor that the Manolo he was forced to fashion his own super fantastic shoes out of the vegtable rinds and milk cartons.
For the Manolo of those days gone, the only of the joys they were to be found in the making of the shoes and in the dreaming of the stars of the Hollywood, especially the David Hasselhoff of the Knight Rider.
At night, after the hard day of the poverty, the Manolo he would lay in the dark of his cold, dirty apartment, listening to the rats scurrying, and dreaming that the Manolo he would be rescued by the eccentric billionaire industrialist, who would give the Manolo his own super fantastic KITT Trans Am, one that could use the many features to help the Manolo in the making of the super fantastic shoes.
Together, the Manolo and his car, they would defeat the forces of the evil (who in those days were wearing of the Birkenstocks.)
Today, the Manolo he will never forgotten those dark days of the past when the twin demons of the poverty and the hunger they stalked the Manolo on their pale horses.
This it is why the Manolo he will always love the Hasselhoff, and why he will always love the movies and the television because they–and the shoes–they were the only things that kept the Manolo from falling into the despair.
Likewise, the Manolo he will always love the Daniel Day Lewis, even when he insists on dressing like the eccentric artiste, in the bizarre formal wear of his own misguided device.
The Manolo he will always love the Daniel Day Lewis because as the actor, he, like the Hasselhoff, is the genius. Ever better, unlike any of the other stars of the Hollywood, the Day Lewis, he truly and deeply loves the shoes.
By the way, has the Manolo mentioned that he is working on the screenplay for the Daniel Day Lewis?
The story it is about a super fantastic shoe designer who, together with his super fantastic car, a black Trans Am, designs the most super fantastic shoes the world has ever seen. The shoes, they are stolen by an evil super villian, Blagerfeld, who trys to use the super fantastic shoes to take over the world. The shoe designer, he and his car, they must get the shoes back before it is too late.
It is, of the course, an action picture of the buddies.
In the opinion of the Manolo, this movie is should be directed by the Baz, and star the Daniel Day Lewis. Him or the Russell Crowe.

Manolo shouts, Perfume Blogging!
Manolo says, two of these three things they are ridiculous. The third, it is the Chia Homer.
Manolo says, several of the Manolo’s internet friends have asked the Manolo the questions on the topic of the boots for the cold.
You and I both see eye to eye when it comes to the horror that is The Uggs. However, living in the Boston area, and having just suffered through a major blizzard, I wondered…what’s a stylish girl to do about winter boots? I have dressy leather boots for going out in the winter, but those are not appropriate for the shoveling…
Is it just a situation where I have to wear the ugly, but warm and dry “boots of the duck” whilst I shovel away, and just change out of them as soon as I can? Or are there anymore stylish options out there that I am missing? Hiking boots don’t really work in 3 feet of snow…
Here is the second question.
My question for you is this: I know that the Ugg boots are not super fantastic, yet, they are shoes of such warmth for me in my cold Canadian climate. On a cold day, putting my feet into a pair of Uggs makes me feel super fantastic, yet, I know that I look ridiculous, as I am not a 12 year old Asian girl (who, as you have said, are the only people by whom the Uggs should be worn). Do you have any suggestions for a pair of super fantastic, and yet also very warm, boots for my cold feets?
Manolo says, first the Manolo he would answer this question by saying that if the first friend of the Manolo she is shovelling the snows, then the fashion of the boot, it is not of the primary importance. The comfort in the cold and the proof against the water, they are indeed the primary concerns.
However, if the purpose of the shoe is to merely walk in the cold and the snow, rather than shovel, than the Manolo he would recommend one of these boots to you.
Like the Ugg boot, this boot from the Rockport(!) it is lined with the shearling and it is smart.
Finally, here is the tall boot with the shearling and the leather straps from the Born. Yes, the straps they look too complex, but to the Manolo, the effect of going behind the calfs it is amusing.
Manolo says, one of the things the Manolo he asks of the winter boots is the practicality, that they are functional before they are stylish. The feets they must be kept warm, and the tread it must prevent the falling on the ice.
However, at the same of the time, these boots they are more than just functional. They have as much of the style as can be expected in the boots of the harsh season.
Manolo says, from the SandraK comes what the Manolo hopes is not the future of the footwear.
