If you want to meet the man behind the dazzling shoes, Manolo Blahnik will be making a personal appearance at Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills Friday (that would be tomorrow), September 26. The event runs 1pm-3pm in the women's shoe section, where his latest collection will be on tap. We suggest going early and, of course, bring that Neiman's card or those checkbook things you have to pull out every once in a while. We always forget the shmancy store won't take anything else—not even a pleading smile. [RackedWire]
