51!

Manolo says, this picture of the Christie Brinkley, it proves the Manolo’s theory that the women of the certain age they look more youthful with the few extra pounds on them. The too skinny, it looks old.

The Bag Blog

Manolo says, the Manolo he has just discovered the Bag Blog. Why was he not told of this sooner? You must go look at this website, it is super fantastic.

The Shoes of the de Havilland

Manolo says, the Guardian they the interview with the super fantastic shoemaker Terry de Havilland. Here is the part of it.

Shoes can change a woman’s life. High heels are empowering. I’ve seen people come into my shops and take off their shoes and put on my shoes and all of a sudden they start strutting their stuff. It changes the way they behave. They put your hips in a different position, push them forward. Men like that.

Manolo says, go look at the Terry de Havilland’s website.

El Dantes

Manolo says, El Dantes! One of the Manolo’s favorite Spanish shoe companies.

My Girl Lollipop

Do clothes designers hate the womens. Please discuss.

Manolo says, very flattering, no?

The Day of San Valentino

Manolo says, the Manolo he takes this opportunity, as the service to the public, to remind his many men friends that the Day of the San Valentino it approaches, and that the man who in his life has the woman, would be unwise to forget this.

This is why the Manolo he would tell you to buy the fine chocolates from the France and the red flowers, the good wine, maybe the jeweled trinket, and perhaps the mid-winter trip to Paris, with the great promptness, so as to avoid the disaster that is the Day of San Valentino forgotten.

Here, however, is the word of the warning about certain catagories of the gifts, most of the importantly, the perfume. Under no of the circumstances should the man buy for the woman the perfume of cheapness. This, it is worse than the buying of no gift at all.

The women, they know that the perfume it is the very personal thing, and so it is important to buy the perfume of the highest quality, one with that is subtle rather than strong. Which is why the Manolo he can do no other than recommend to you this:

Chanel No. 5 Eau De Parfum

Manolo says, yes, the Manolo he has the “issues” with the House of The Chanel and it’s current evil head designer, however, this it does not erase the fact that the Coco, she was the genius. And the Chanel No 5 is the most classic perfume, one that is subtle, sophisticated, and suitable for most of the womens.

Here is the tip to the men friends of the Manolo: don’t be the skate of cheap on the Day of San Valentino, buy the big bottle.

The Wearing of the Stockings

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

Dear Manolo, My super fantastic daughter shared your site with me and it is indeed a delight to read. I admire the Nicole Miller shoes you have pointed out, but being a lady of a certain age, I must ask a question about the wearing of the stockings? Ladies of style always did, except in summer, but this rule no longer seems true. It looks to me as if all the super fantastic glamour girls wear bare legs and strappy sandals at all times. But in January and with the elegant open-toe shoe (and legs that might benefit from a little gleam of the hosiery) are stockings still acceptable? What does the the wise and gentle Manolo think of this dilemma for the woman of a certain age?

Manolo says, it is indeed true, we live in greatly reduced times. When the Manolo he was the boy, the lady she was not dressed until the stockings they covered her legs.

And now? Now the trend toward the bareleggedness it has run the amok, so that even in the winter the Manolo he sees the womens showing their bare legs, with the shaving cuts, and the bruises, and the veins of the vericosa.

Manolo says, unless you are the 15-year-old super model girl, most of the womens they will look better with the right stockings.

Yes, during the summer it is frequently too hot to wear the stocking, but in the winter, if you are the fully-grown woman, then the stockings not only are they warm, but they hide the imperfections that the time it has given you.

And if you wear the beautiful Nicole Miller shoe the Manolo he has recommended, then the sheerest nude stockings with the so-called sandal-feets, they will look perfectly fine.
