Build the Outfit #6…The Winner!

Manolo says, the decision was incredibly difficult for the Manolo, as there were several excellent designs from which the Manolo had to choose.

But, ultimately, the Manolo felt that this outfit, submitted by the Manolo’s internet friend lhpoppy was the winner…

Build the Outfit #6, The Winner!

For the Manolo what made this outfit stand out was that it was traditional and Englishy and tweedy, yet at the same time, it played with proportions in the most amusing manner.

The colors were marvelous, and the Manolo has been seeing cloche hats everywhere, much to his approval, and the stocking were fun. The Manolo might have selected different gloves and earrings, but the basic outfit showed the great sense of style.

By the way, the Manolo had two runners up, the classic look from Jinnan-tonnyx and the more original and youthful style from OptimistPrime. Both were quite strong and made the Manolo’s final choice difficult.

Miu Miu Vernice Pop Pump for the Monday

Vernice Pop Pump by Miu Miu   Manolo Likes!  Click!

Manolo says, it is again Monday, and you are back at your desk, dealing with the petty demands of the working day.

Still, buried beneath your professional and business-like exterior, lies the softly beating heart of the free-spirited romantic, the sort of girl who would wear these red Miu Miu Vernice Pop Pumps with Harris tweeds and the felt cloche. This look is inappropriate for your office, faintly ridiculous, and somewhat anachronistic, and yet also completely adorable, and likely to attract the admiring gaze of poetic men.
