New here and inspired by the poster who detailed her first Manolos:
Does anyone else want to share their 'first time'?
My first pair also happened to be Manolos - predating the sex and the city craze - even (I think - I didn't find SATC until 2001).
I have a thing for blue roses (thus the screen name). I was shopping with my aunt who has killer taste, we were in the shoe dept at Neimans and there they were - a pair of Manolo slides white with the most gorgeous blue roses on them. It was shoe love. My aunt gave me some money toward them - bless her heart - & I blew my mad money for the month --- a shoe diva was born. I still have them tucked away and wear them on special occasions.
