Manolo's Shoe Blog: Shoes, Fashion, Celebrity, and Manolo! - Part 384

The Project Runway

Manolo says, if like the Manolo you are obsessed with the Project Runway, than perhaps you would like to visit the links of the websites of the three finalists, the Jay, the Wendy, and the Kara Saun.

Manolo his favorite contestant it is the Jay, who makes the Manolo laugh with his sassy/bitchy wit, and whose dresses, although not always to the Manolo’s liking, are both original and thoughtful.

As for the Kara, the Manolo he loves her work, she is the true professional, and except for the crazy pants for the Grammy, her designs they are always good. (Although, the Manolo he will admit that it was the pleasure of the guilty to watch the chaotic evil Wendy get under the skin of the Kara Saun in the latest of the episodes.)

Wendy, Wendy, Wendy. What is there to say, but that she has some talent, but that her conniving/needy/tough/weepy personality it has the Manolo wondering if the therapy of the hormone replacement, it is not needed. Trust the Manolo, you would not want to work in the same office as this woman.

And then there was the Austin. The Manolo he loves the Austin. He is the beautiful, scrawny, flaming creature, who wears the costume of the Post Office better than any of the not-so-super models. Has not anyone but than the Manolo noticed the striking resemblence (certainly intentional) between the Austin and the young Yves Saint Laurent?

However, as the designer, the Austin, he the pony of the one trick. Yes it is the very good trick, but he keeps doing it again and again, even when it is not the right trick for the moment. And, the worse, the one time he does not do the trick, during the challange of the wedding dresses, it is the debacle so bad that the producers they must step in to save him from the elimination.

Manolo says, this show of the television, it is the addicitve pleasure, one that the Manolo he will miss when it ends.

P.S. Many thanks to the Manolo’s internet friend at the Bradford Shellhammer for the links to the websites.

Another From The Cynthia Rowley

The Sore-Footed Mama

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

After decades standing on her feet for hours on end at a retail job, my mother’s feet are a disaster. She cannot find any nice shoes that don’t pinch or hurt her poor abused feet after an hour of wear. Can you please recommend any particular brands or low-heeled styles that would be age-appropriate (50s) and extremely comfortable?

Manolo says, this question it is easily answered with the three words: the Taryn Rose.

The shoes of the Taryn Rose, they were desinged by the lady doctor, the orthopedic surgeon, who like the mother of the Manolo’s friend had the feet of soreness from the prolonged standing. So they are made with the comfort of the foot in the mind.

In the general these shoes they are very conservative in the style, but a few, like this one, the Manolo likes very much,(although the heels, they are perhaps to high for the wearing by the mother).

If the Manolo, he were to recommend the low-heeled shoe from the Taryn Rose, he would suggest the something like this one.

Manolo says, yes, this shoe it is indeed the “sensible” shoe, yet it is still stylish enough so that the mother of the Manolo’s internet friend she will like the wearing of it.
