Manolo Blahnik Shoes

Are You in Love with Manolo Blahnik
OK, so I'm thinking about investing in some Manolo Blahnik shoes,
uh, sandals! Yes, I know I used the word investment, that's just
what it is...for the sake of glamour. But I've been fantasizing
about owning a pair of Manolos for years.
As you may know, there's been well-deserved hype about Manolo
Blahnik shoes for a good long time. In fact, Manolo himself
started designing these tasty, strappy little shoes back in the
early 1970's in London. Back then, he was carefully followed by
the editor of US Vogue magazine and found fans among many English
celebs in his London shoe shop, Zapata.
But it took twenty more years before his sexy, flirty and finely
crafted Manolo Blahnik shoes became de rigueur in the US as well.
Although his first collections were more visual than wearable, he
became a master of the craft of shoe creation, and now sets the
standard among famous shoe designers by inventing footwear that
skillfully blends avant garde flavors with classic and enduring
Manolo Blahnik Shoes are Ab Fab!
Back to my obsession: the first moment I got the itch to own a
pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes was when I was watching AbFab
(Absolutely Fabulous). Remember that show? It made my own Abs Fab
all right, because I practically split a gut watching it & got
some badly needed exercise for my midriff every episode.
Although it was a guilty pleasure, I found myself getting just as
turned on by all the accessories, shoes and shopping sprees as
Patsy & Eddy did. And, because they were unabashed English fad
hounds, they clued us in to couture footwear superstar, Manolo and
his Manolo Blahnik shoes!
Then, of course, Carrie from Sex and the City got all jazzed about
the shoes, and that was it! The US became hooked on Manolo Blahnik
shoes, as the must-have luxury item during the late1990's.
Which brings me to my point....Lucky for me, and hopefully for you
too, there is finally an affordable way to get your hands on some
Manolo Blahnik shoes for half of what you would pay at Barney's or
at one of his two exclusive boutiques in New York and London.
