Manolo says, the Manolo, along with many of his fashion blogger friends, has been mentioned in today’s Wall Street Journal, where he is referred to as the “anonymous writer, known for his quirky humor and syntax.”
Manolo loves the shoes!
Manolo! To be mentioned in the same article as you is a great honor. This article is excellent and really speaks to the increasing influence of the humble, fun bloggers who write about fashion for the love, not the money.
Not only that, it’s #2 in the Journal’s “Most Blogged About Wall Street Journal articles” today. As it should be. :)
I saw that article this morning. Congratulations! You are, indeed, superfantastic!
Anonymous, no. Pseudonimous, yes.
Congratulations, Manolo! So happy to see the world is catching on to your brilliance.
in my humble opinion, being praised for one’s syntax even beats being praised for one’s shoes. quirky syntax! now, doesn’t that sound just superfantastic?
The quirky humour
We in the blogosphere express our inarticulate thanks!
We are still partially numb from laughter – “waiting for the juicy insect to fly by”
Soon you will be so famous, and you’ll forget all your friends here in your blog. ;)
Ditto what Fausta said. Can’t believe they outed you (BTW, how does it feel to be outed by the WSJ??).
Apparently they think we’re internet rubes.
Still, it’s quite an honor to get that kind of mention. Congrats on the great press! It’s all about the visibility, right? “No press is bad press”, etc.?
Will you be autographing printed copies and auctioning them on eBay?
Hear Hear! Congrats on your write-up in WSJ….Althought I would expect them to say a bit more about the blog than your “quirky syntax”, which I agree, definitely keeps us all checking in!
You are The Superfantastic!
The Manolo is not only a fantastic and entertaining read but he is also vital to the happiness of the Country. If the superfantastic women are not getting the good and marvelous shoes then they will not be happy. If the women are not happy then all will suffer. The economy declines and the chances for the toad to get lucky really decline. So it is in everyones interest for the Manolo to have a long and superfantastic life and career. It is noted that countrys that do not have the good womens shoes are not places you want to be. So internationaly the Manolo is vital to peace since I feel sure that the wonderful women everywhere read his marvelous blog.
I do not like the Manolo. Manolo talks about the superfantastic women with the superfantastic shoes. What about all of us who are not superfantastic? What about the homely, the geek, and like myself the bald.
We see not the advice to the homely and the bald. Why Manolo, why Manolo? Is it because the Manolo is a snob, a dilettante? Why not does the Manolo talk about the Birkenstock, the white Chuck Taylor Converse Hi-Tops? Is the Manolo not good enough for the $19.99 Wal-mart sneaker?
Inquiring minds want to know the mind of Manolo
If you had followed the Manolo you would realize that he has advised the women with foot and leg problems both aesthetic and physical. The good construction of the good design has limitations on how low the price can be. The careful budget, and the saving for the purchase of the quality items is widely estabished principal. I am not the young and handsome man, and the wearing of the good and excellent will not make me young or handsome, but the wearing of the crap will make me look worse. Also my mood is better when I am wearing the nice stuff. The bad makes me feel worse and less social. The crappy shoe is a false economy, the good shoe will last the years, while the bad shoe is gone in months, gives the pain, and leaves you with a really bad look before they fall apart.
