Build the Outfit #5

Manolo says, this week, the Manolo’s Build the Outfit contest is sponsored by the Manolo’s good friends at the Tsubo, the makers of the very stylish and amusing casual shoes.

Naturally, because of this kindness the Manolo has chosen the pair of the sportif Tsubos around which you, the gifted amateur stylists, shall build the outfit.

Above you see the Zibal by Tsubo in the color scheme described as the Denim/Ice Blue/Emerald, which the Manolo finds to be not only attractive but also redolent of the certain sort of sporty young woman, one who has the carefree and somewhat charmingly oddball manner.

The Manolo now asks you to build the outfit for this hypothetical young woman, using this shoe as the start.

Please, as is our custom, post your entries at the Manolo’s Super Fantastic Forums.

The contest will end on Saturday, when the Manolo will pick the winner, who will receive the gift certificate good for the pair of shoes from the Tsubo!

UPDATE: In response to the question left by one of the Manolo’s internet friends, the Manolo has decided to allow any color of the Tsubo Zibal you desire!

Look! Here is the Zibal in the handsome blood orange color…

Or in the Putty/Red, which is the favorite of the Manolo’s amanuensis.

So, use the color combination you prefer, and let the thousand outfits bloom!


What the Manolo Is…

Manolo says, it is the Tuesday, time to see what the Manolo is…


Listening to…


The Manolo just this past week saw the Ratatouille movie and now must note that it is absolutely delightful; funny, clever, beautifully done, and wonderfully written. Of the course, all of this now makes the Manolo ask, why can they not make the live action movies with this much heart and soul?

The Manolo was especially taken with the character of the critic Anton Ego, for he proves what the Manolo has long known, that within every cynic lies the disillusioned romantic, one who may be returned to the state of grace by the experience of the sublime.
