It’s every girl’s dream to own a pair of Manolo’s the shoes that make us ‘feel special’, and for me, these were my first pair! #fortheloveofmanolo
Flashback to May 2006 when my husband and I were in Chicago visiting friends on our 7 week belated honeymoon around Europe and the USA #greattimes
We were in Neiman Marcus on Michigan Ave (Magnificent Mile) when I spotted a pair of Manolo’s in the shoe department. They were the same style but in a blue colour and I asked the sales assistant for my size. They returned saying they didn’t have the blue but they did have them in gold. When the box opened, I gasped with excitement a huge smile grew on my face in anticipation of putting on ‘The Pretties!’…. Money can’t buy happiness but it can buy Manolo’s #shoeloveatfirstsight
I still remember my husband laughing and looking at me adoringly when he saw how much I loved them. I walked over to the mirror and stood there staring at the pretty gold Manolo shoes on my feet. It was a Cinderella moment! Ha ha ha
Then the magical words flowed out my husband’s mouth when he turned to the sales assistant and said "We’ll take them", to which I nearly fainted because they were $800 plus tax (which was a lot back in 2006, well to be fair is a lot now!)….
I’ve worn these time and time again and they always make a statement! Here I’ve accompanied them with Prada pants and top, my gold bracelet from Evocateur, Dave lemon quartz ring, Louis Vuitton Sunglasses and Prada Bag.
Cheers to my first pair of Manolo Blahnik's the shoes that stole my shoe heart!
Until next time Live style. Live spirit. Live soul. This is Character 32 doing her best to help you!
