We’re Back! | Manolo for the Big Girl

We’re Back!

Popular fashion wisdom says pink, plaid and polka dots will ALWAYS come back.

Valentino Mena
Type Z - Sweet (Beige) - Footwear

 And so will we!

That’s right, the entire Manolosphere crashed and we’ve been apart far, far too long. It’s good to be back.

And while I’m at it, can I just talk about how much I love those Valentinos? I have these exact pair and I love them the way I love ALL classic Valentino shoes, which is to say “more than my family but not as much as my Cadillac”

They’re the most glorious softly pearlized peachy pink and I want to kiss them.

On that note:

Those are a very, very slim 4 1/2″ heel and positively no platform.  I’ve had them for a year and a half and I have YET to wear them outside the house. In fact, the furthest distance they have travelled à pied is the 39 steps from my couch to my bedroom, and because my bishop and my brother read this blog I will not go into further detail, but, kind reader, beware; it’s all fun and games until someone gets a puncture wound.

    Those Valentinos are gorgeous, but they’re definitely shoes that don’t leave the house.

    Everyone else can have my pink if I can have those adorable shoes.

    It’s a shame really, that you can’t just CARRY beautiful-but-delicate shoes with you, displaying their beauty to the public while not actually having to perambulate in them.

    Ah well, I’m sure there will come a lovely event that doesn’t require walking, but instead just a brief period of you standing around in those shoes, champagne flute in hand, basking in the compliments.

    Hehehehe, I have a pair of shoes like that, maybe even 2.
