[Monday, August 19, 2013] Yesterday I got this book as well, what an amazing shoe addict book. It's a must for shoes fans and fashionistats.

[Wednesday, January 22, 2014] An hour or so ago I started reading this cute memoir and fairy tale and I loved it. The illustration is wonderful, Manolo's spirit shines bright in every page, he's such a dreamer and a goal achiever. I want to be him as well.

Stunning little book which cleverly weaves the fairytale with Manolo's journey to Shoe God.
Illustrated by Manolo's with his handwritten notes, this book is a treasure for any shoe lover on that basis alone.
This book has pride of place on my book shelf as my single pair of Manolo's has in my shoe cabinet and I know I'm a lucky girl and if dreams come true my next pair will be Something Blue.......

This is a sweet series of fashion fairy tales illustrated by the featured designer. Manolo Blahnik's memoir from a youth spent in the canary islands to a fashion boy in London is interspersed with the tale of The Shoemaker and the Elves.
