Flashback to June 2008 (look how young I looked) when we were in NYC I somehow ended up in at the Manolo store in Manhattan. I don’t know how that happened? Well, actually that’s not the entire truth….I went looking for the store #iwasbuyingmanolos
Walking into the store you’re surrounded by ‘Works of Art’ well that’s what I call Manolo shoes. Each and every beautiful pair are handmade and crafted. That’s one of the reasons they’re so special.
I wasn’t on a mission to find ‘these’ Zebra Black and White Manolo’s which are the same shoe worn by SJP on Sex and The City. However, when I spotted them I knew they were going to be mine! ha ha ha. Once they were on my feet there were no questions and I didn’t hesitate I simply said, “I’ll take them!”.
They’re made of black and white material in the signature heel style Manolo is renowned for. And when you take a closer look you’ll see the attention to detail on the heel. I love the round gold tips which give them that extra edge. All in all, they are just pretty!
I don’t get to wear them much anymore because Singapore is just too hot and the humidity ruins my shoes! I’ve already destroyed one pair of Manolo’s whilst at the Singapore Polo. It was so hot the black part of my heel melted! How the riders and horses could play in that heat is beyond me?
When something is meant to be, and the universe wants you to have it, then it will just happen. That’s story behind my Zebra Manolo’s.
Until next time Live style. Live spirit. Live soul. This is Character 32 doing her best to help you!
