God Save McQueen! | Manolo for the Big Girl

God Save McQueen!

There are two types of people in the world. Those who think that quirky British designer Alexander McQueen is an absolute genius and should — as part of a quartet including Alber Elbaz at Lanvin, Nicholas Ghesquiere at Balenciaga and the funky little fashion troll himself, John Galliano– spend the rest of his life designing clothes for me and the lucky few whom I deem worthy, and people who are just plain wrong. Miuccia Prada would, naturally, be den mother.

McQueen isn’t for everyone’s taste, but check out these intriguing little pieces of ankle candy.

Black croc and polished leather brogue pumps with a demi-bow accent. What powders my doughnut about these darlings is that at first glance they’re so understated. It isn’t until you take a second peek that you see exactly how detailed they are. Size 11 only and on megasale for more than sixty percent off!

    LOVE the shoes, though.

    Why WHY?! are the shoes I love only on sale for the sizes that are much bigger than my own feets? Argh! *weeps*

    I would like to go on record that my fantasy life is outfitted primarily in absurdly fantastic couture pieces my Messrs. McQueen and Galliano. Your fashion quartet (quintet?) should be allowed absolute rule.

    Those are amazing! Darn it for them only being in size 11!

    I love your fashion quartet, and I will raise you a Olivier Theyskens at Nina Ricci.

    That said, I like some of the Prada, too. It’s a big world out there.

    I told myself I wouldn’t buy them and then an evil evil friend of mine sent me a 10% off coupon. And that’s all she took. Thanks for the tip on this one! (For once, celebrating my massive footsies!)
