Charity Begins with Brown Thomas Christmas Cards

Hey All,

I just saw these charity Christmas cards that Brown Thomas and some pretty huge design-houses have created. Tiffany & Co., Lanvin, Roberto Cavalli and Manolo Blahnik; as well as Lulu Guinness and erm… Victoria Beckham. I can’t decide between Manolo Blahnik (it does say Dublin 2010 after all) or Roberto Cavalli; hello leopard-print goodness. But then there’s the Lanvin one, all crazy and silly and festive. Oh I dunno, maybe I’ll get them all, it’s €10 for three anyway and all proceeds go to the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to ChildrenI.S.P.C.C. They’re available from BT’s in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway.

Victoria BeckhamI do know however, that this last one is about as festive as waking up on Christmas morning to find, after he’s consumed too many Sherry’s and mince pies, Santa has passed water all over your prezzies, before passing out under the tree.

Actually, come to think of it, that sounds a typical Chrismas in Whisty’s house…

I love a bit of charity, especially at Christmas, go on – you don’t have to give them away, just frame them and keep them for yourself!

Oh Manolo – You never fail to woo

Hey All,

You may or may not know that I like to bug shoe-boutique assistants by trying-on very beautiful shoes for the benefit of this blog. Last night, while late-night-shopping, OR early evening wining and dining, meant that it was time to try the boots of the season on. After looking at the Brown Thomas Christmas windows (wadda you mean you haven’t seen ’em yet!) quite a lot, over the last week or so, I’ve completely fallen for the Manolo Blahnik white fur boots. Oh Lordy, I want them bad; if nothing else, they look so flippin warm.

I think I actually prefer them in black, rather than white. The ones I tried on were two sizes, too big, they only have one pair in store you see. You have to order them if you want them because they are  all hand-made (by Santa’s elves???). You pay around €85o, your boots get commissioned and hand-made, and then you collect them in a week or so. Ah you so would. Dare you!

Innamore by Manolo Blahnik – An Ode to Toes

Innamore €585 Manolo Blahnik Brown ThomasOh how much would I love to put my perfectly pedicured tootsies into a pair of these. Classically Blahnik and utterly beautiful, these shoes are so great that if I were to wear them, I’d fall at my own feet…

…An aside, Whisty dude, you can’t even afford the pedi. let alone the Manolos… The Innamore shoe, (€585), is available at The Shoe Rooms, Brown Thomas, Grafton Street.

Manolo Kicks Myth Rumours to Curb

Shoe God, Manolo Blahnik, has finally, (finally!) re-released one of the most coveted shoes in the world. The Black Patent Mary Jane made infamous by his greatest fan, Carrie Bradshaw, will finally be available to buy. Proving that it is no longer an “urban shoe myth”, that Carrie exclaims it to be in SATC.

manolo Blahnik Patent Mary Janes

Manolo Blahnik told Vogue.com “I adore Ms. Parker, the character she played has had such a role in my career – I cannot help but regard both of them as muses!”

How amazing? Of the Campari shoe he says, “It started off with the idea of a children’s Mary Jane, but then I made it sexy; pointed toe, high heel – and in black patent with grosgrain trim!”

I asked in the Manolo Blahnik shoe boutique in Brown Thomas when they would be arriving in store… end of July / beginning of August for the new AW09 collection. And the possible price point??? Maybe around €500! Sounds good to me, i shall start saving now I think, or more info on the entire Blahnik SS09 collection on Vogue.com click here
