Look! The Manolo has graciously consented to publish my scribblings about shoe names! Go! Read!
P.S. As you may know, shoe naming is something of an obsession with me. For evidence, see this and this and also this, this, and this.

Cool post, Nancy! I don't read the name of the shoe, and when I get it home, never think "Oh, I'll wear my Czarinas". It is "I'll wear those red flats with the black stitching."
But lipstick is another story, and I'm irritated when they only use a number. I can remember Paris Punch at the store, not 526. Please arrange the world to suit me.

Fascinating! I barely notice that shoes have names, let alone a naming pattern. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
