Manolo Blahnik & Me

Monday, October 11, 2010

Popped over to Beverly Hills for a meeting last week, and took a little detour through Neiman Marcus to catch a glimpse of the iconic Manolo Blahnik doing a signing for his recent book.
Seeing him in person was a little like meeting Santa Clause. Some people don't even believe he's real. (Imagine!) Quoting a girlfriend of mine: "There's an actual person called Manolo? Not just a shoe?"
Indeed. And he was pretty snazzy in his pastel suit, and super gracious too.
Admittedly, I don't (yet!) own a pair of Manolo's. They've always been something I just dream about through the looking glass door... (not unlike the cabbage patch doll I'd wish and hope for on Christmas eve as a child...)
At any rate, the event was spectacular, and a lovely distraction, complete with piano man and sparkly dress wearing model.
My humble Banana Mary-Jane's carried me away into thoughts and wishes of another kind...
