The first I met in London on a side street after considerable search. Manolo Blahnik is stylish and elegant and soon several pairs graced out closet.
But you know its funny..... I discovered there are more and Jimmy Choo entered the scene. We can find Jimmy Choo in many more locations; most visited for us being Chicago. She even braved the rugged streets of Mumbai alone to find a Jimmy Choo!
I soon found that new closet space was required.
I have learned that there are limits. On a visit to Hong Kong the Duchess became ill. We had to call the hotel doc and get her some medicine to recover. We even had to delay our departure for Beijing for a day to fully recover. Well... my story is this; I took the Duchess for a walk to access her well being before heading to Beijing. On the walk we passed a corner with Manolo Blahnik on one side and Jimmy Choo on the other. When the Duchess was not interested in visiting either I knew she had not recovered.
There are others of course. Lesser known players that tug as her heart strings; like Michael Kors, Cole Haan, Donald Pliner, Salvatore Ferragamo, Stuart Weitzman to name only a few.
The latest is now showing its red bottom. Christian Loubouton has arrived. Will we find them in Africa?
Of course the Duchess had to share me with the likes of Lang, Nike, Footjoy, Sidi Sperry and of course Merrill. -
