The Column of the Manolo

Wednesday, July 27th, 2005
By Manolo the Shoeblogger

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.

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.

Manolo says, Ayyyyyy! The life it imitates the Manolo.

Two weeks ago the Manolo he joked that the Charlotte Church she seemed “ripe for the conversion to the Scientology.”

And now, the joke of the Manolo it is the real rumor! Charlotte Church – of Scientology.

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.

Cynthia Rowley - Runway Wedge (Brown)   Manolo Likes!  Click!

Manolo says, this wedge from the Cynthia Rowley with its deep, subdued brown color and rich leather, it brings to the mind of the Manolo the sort of shoe worn by the Katherine Hepburn in the 1940s; handsome, strong, and yet still feminine and very alluring.

This, it could be worn with the retro wide-leg trousers and the short jacket to great effect.

Pucci 754908    Manolo Likes!  Click!

Manolo says, here you see the most unusual sort of the shoe from the Pucci, something perhaps understated, something not with the usual festive patterns of the Pucci.

This it would be perfect for wearing with the deep brown suede skirt on the first cool afternoon of the early fall.

(Yes, it is still the summer, but the newly arrived shoes of autumn they beckon to the Manolo.)

The Muffin Top

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, and here the Manolo he risks reigniting the entire Kelly Clarkson’s Belly controversy, but there is the most amusing article about the too-tight pants and the midriff bearing fashions in the Daily News of the New York, and the article it includes the picture of the Kelly Clarkson spilling bounteously over the top of her pants.

It’s called a muffin top: that unsightly roll of flesh that spills over the waist of a pair of too-tight pants, like a muffin bursting out of the pan. And this fashion affliction hits celebrities as much as civilians, according to In Touch magazine’s Jarrett Weiselman. “Queen of the muffin top is Courtney Love,” he says. “And before she got pregnant, Britney Spears was also guilty.”

Christina Aguilera is a reformed muffin topper, often spotted onstage during her wild-child period in a pair of badly fitting pants accessorized with an ample tummy roll. Kelly Clarkson is also a repeat offender. “Especially when Kelly first won ‘American Idol,’ the muffin top was the one thing that was common in everything she wore – nothing fit right.” And her tummy can still be seen rising over the pants she’s poured herself into on tour this month.

Of the course, this it is exactly what the Manolo he said two of the months ago.
