Manolo the Columnist!

Manolo says, Ayyyyyyy! Today, the Manolo he is now the newspaper columnist!

If you are in the area of the Washington, District of the Columbia, you must get the copy of the Washington Post Express so that you may read the Manolo’s column on the shoes. In it he discusses, briefly, the flip-flops. He even reccomends the pair of the Kenzo sandals!

Manolo the Columnist? Truly this it is the best of all possible worlds.

    I’m just a bit cranky in that I can’t find it while online this morning. Anyone have a link?

    I was half asleep on the Metro this morning when I saw the Manolo! It made me very happy and ripped the vision of the plastic kitten-heeled shoes on the woman next to me from my brain.

    That is wonderful, Manolo. And you are sharing a page with some divine shoes, too. (Where can I get the pink satin slides and the ribbon-embroidery flats online?)

    Yay!! The American people, especially those who don’t even know what a blog is, need your wisdom. But for us that certainly do, is there a link to the article online? If not, can you publish your article on your blog?

    Hooray!!!

    The column it is available only as the downloaded .pdf file at the webpage of the Washington Post Express. In the upper right corner of the page is the link to “Download Today’s Edition”. The column of the Manolo it is on the page 27.

    The Manolo he will post his column here at the Shoe Blog later today, so that all may read it.

    Finally, ze wisdom of ze Manolo it reaches ze newspaper column! Mam’zelle is only sorry that merely one question was asked of ze Manolo. Ze Manolo should maintain a daily column of witty, super fantastic answers to ze multiple questions of ze fashion-challenged masses. Le bon Dieu knows zey are out there.

    Happy day! I usually don’t read the Express but now I might start. DC will be a more superfantastic place now that the Manolo is here!

    Now all of the little people willl learn of the wisdom and the truth from the Master himself!

    You deserve this, my friend. Heartfelt congratulations. Perhaps a new suit by the Prada is in order?

    The sandals of the Kenzo are truly superfantastic, much like the Manolo himself.

  19. Pegerrific July 26, 2005 at 5:45 pm #

    I thought the Manolo might like to see the discussion of the pus and the socks and the sandals from the CBC:
