Manolo says, once again the Posse Manolo has been on the polite and well-heeled rampage through the mean-girl streets of the Beverly Hills.
And as always, there is much to see on the Robertson Boulevard, such as the angry and importuning papparazzi swarms, the re-engineered faces of the ladies who lunch, and the occasional glimpse of the celebrity of no consequence.
Such things, although remarkably entertaining, are the not the point of the trip to the 90210.
In the stead, it is the shoes!
And here are two of the Manolo’s favorites purchased by the members of the Posse during the day spent on the prowl.
And then the simple, t-strap sandal in the antique bronze from the Donald J. Pliner.
Both of these they have the understated panache that the Manolo finds appealing in those women who do not need to obsessively seek out the attention of the press.
As for the luncheon while shopping, the Manolo politely suggests this place, the Michelia Nouvelle, as being the relaxed and tasty alternative to the power-based snobbery of the Ivy.
