My Favorite Manolo Blahnik Ever

Manolo's gold lizard mule dripping with baroque pearls. I don't remember the year it came out. I lived in it, cost per wearing down low. Jeans and a Rifat Ozbek embellished bolero over something black and tight. I thought about these today seeing an old friend's name on facebook. She wore hers with her wedding dress.

Heritage is a word thrown out today to come to grips with certain very expensive and fine things in these post-cataclysmic  days. I think it's true, some things that are wicked expensive should be cherished, acid-free tissue stuffed in the toe to keep the shape and a yearly visit to the shoe repair shop to be saturated with moisture and all nicks and wear whooshed away.

There's pages of books with illustrations and photos, even from Anna Wintour and Colin McDowell. A delicious read from each linked here ...
