What the Manolo Is…

Manolo says, the Manolo he has been so busy that he forgot to do this yesterday. So, here, the day late, is what the Manolo is…

Reading…

Watching…

Reading…

Listening to…

Manolo says, is there not something magnetic about the young, brilliant, and not so lumpy Depardieu?

P.S. The Manolo he continues to recommend to his friends interested in the history of the fashion and the style the most amusing book, The Essence of Style by the Joan DeJean.

Manolo says, Suetonius again.

He had an insatiable desire to immortalize his name, and acquire a reputation which should last through all succeeding ages; but it was capriciously directed. He therefore took from several things and places their former appellations, and gave them new names derived from his own.

The Column of the Manolo

Manolo says, here is the column of the Manolo that appeared in the Express of the Washington Post.

Dear Manolo,
Please tell me your take on the emergence of the flip-flop as the shoe of choice for any and all occasions.
Bubbles

Manolo says, Ayyyyyyy! Like the Bubbles, the Manolo he is indeed most offended by the ubiquity of the rubber flip-flop. It is as if the whole world it has gone mad for the shower shoe, wearing what is suitable only for the locker room onto the mean and filthy streets of the big city.

Trust the Manolo, this it is the prescription for the disaster. As the genius Jimmy Buffet once sang in his masterwork, “stepped on the poptop, blew out the flip-flop.”

But fear not, the Manolo he is here to guide you. If you must wear the flat sandal he recommends to you the Kenzo 253157.

This happy shoe it will cheer you with its most unusual and stylish design. Even the better, your feets they will be cool, comfortable, and protected from the most vicious of the urban poptops.

Manolo says, the Manolo he must thank his internet friend the Bubbles for the most amusing and timely question.

And now the Manolo he asks his readers in the Washington of the D.C. if they enjoyed the column of the Manolo to write to the editor of the Express of the Washington Post to tell this person how much they liked reading the Manolo’s humble column.

Of the course, if you are not in the Washington, it cannot hurt to email your local papers to tell them of the Manolo and his many fans.
