How you get your Manolos in Seoul.

7 October 2011

I was on my way home from work today and saw this.


It was such a visual oxymoron of the two. A dirty old motorbike and it's delivery man driver with the crisp new bag housing expensive, chic and no doubt very elegant Manolo Blahnik shoes.

Since watching Sex and the City I pined for a pair of Manolo Blahniks, just like the other few million girls who watched it probably did too. Specifically I lusted after that incredible pair of blue satin heels in the movie. It could have had something to do with everything else about that scene too though. You know the one, when Big has bought the incredible apartment. The one with the huge-beautiful-to-die-for walk-in closet (do I really need to remind you?) and he places just the one pair of gorgeous shoes in there....'cause let's face it, if you've spent that much already you may as well chuck in a pair of pretty shoes!

Blue Manolo Blahniks from Sex and the City <3
The only thing is...I remember reading a quote from Manolo Blahnik in reference to the movie. He said, "We had a very good year last year, thanks to those stupid satin shoes. That shoe saved our company".

Errmm, excuse me Mr. Blahnik but it doesn't  really seem like the shoes are that stupid if that's really the case though does it?!! What a way to put your foot in your mouth! No pun intended there. 
Anyway for the second movie, perhaps because of that comment and a few others, in which he didn't sound a great deal more grateful, Carrie switched her allegience to Christian Louboutin. 

Generally I think Louboutin are prettier anyway. Whilst Manolos are very classical and I'm sure are probably more timeless, Louboutin have younger looking styles and are far more stand-out-from-the-crowd, if you get my drift.

Here are the shoes that caught my eye from the Manolo Blahnik Fall 2011 collection: 

You can check out the rest of Manolo Blahnik Fall collection on  the site I got these pics from TookLookBook...

...and here are my Christian Louboutin picks from the Fall 2011 Collection:

Just had to put a pick of these on - Googly Eye shoes!!! eeek!

The rest of the Christian Louboutin Fall collection is also on TookLookBook.

So tell me, which do you think? Do you prefer Manolo Blahnik or Chrisitan Louboutin? Speaking hypothetically of course, for the 98% of us who can't really afford to be fussy (I'll take any!) over this!!


  1. The louboutins, I'm loving the embellishment factor!

  2. That closet scene in Sex and the City movie was wow. I am so jealous of Carrie everytime I watch it!

    Honestly, I like both designers. If I had to decide though, I pick Christian Louboutin because I like his designs more. :D

    They're bold and fun!

  4. Christian Louboutin!

    I love the first two...I want them!

  5. Christian Louboutin! Manolo Blahnik is a bit old and boring.lolll
    i dont get it why Manolo Blahnik called his own shoes stupid?

  6. V, I don't know why I called them stupid either. Clearly a bit of a tool!

    I'm so happy everyone agrees on Louboutin! I kinda want the googly eye ones just because they're so funny. Think it would be such a good talking point when you were out. haha!

    Bet I wouldn't think that if I knew how much they were though!

    So on second thoughts I guess I'd want the blue ones with the gold toe. Or the purple boots. Or... Oh, why can't I just afford them all?!
