Manolo Blahnik 'Bayan' Sandal
man oh manolo
I had hunted all over for a shoe to go with my coral Jason Wu dress to wear to an event. I live in Seattle and we do not always get the same selection as other stores located in larger regions. I ordered this online with fingers crossed, hoping they would fit and be as beautiful in person as they were online. PERFECTION! fit beautifully and were as beautiful as I had hoped. My one complaint is that the selection in smaller markets like Seattle area is slim in designer and salon departments. Otherwise, these babies and I are going to dance the night away.
Not for me
This shoe is exactly the style I am looking for to wear at my son's wedding this summer. It is a bit more (okay, a lot more) than I usually pay for shoes, but I don't wear heels very often and I thought the cost would be justified if they were comfortable. It is not a sky-high heel and I took into consideration the comments that it runs small, so I ordered a size up. The length was perfect, the shoes are gorgeous, but they weren't that comfortable! I tried and tried to make them work because they are so pretty and classic and I could easily have worn them again, but their was very little padding in the foot pad area and I knew that even if I added padding, I would still be miserable.
