Manolo say, the most recent column of the Manolo for the Express of the Washington Post it is now available for the downloading.

It is in the City of the Washington, time for the festival of the Cherry Blossoms

Dear Manolo,

It’s time for the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, can you reccommend something appropriate?


Three of the four seasons of the Washington, they must be endured rather than enjoyed. The winter, it is drab and too often cold. The fall may be pleasant physically, but every other autumn brings with it the spiritual torture of the political campaigns. And summer, ayyyyyyy! Summer, it is in Washington the sticky hot death, with the side orders of the mosquitos.

But spring in the District it is the glorious season of light, and renewal, and happiness. It is the season of the cherry blossoms!

And so to celebrate this most wonderful time of the year, you must to the wind throw the inhibitions, and wear the super fantastically fun shoes, shoes of frivolousness and happiness, shoes that are girlish and colorful, and make you want to dance on the sidewalks.

Thus the Manolo he would recommend to you the 263627 from the Kenzo, as being suitable for the celebrations of the spring. The Takada Kenzo, he is Japanese, like the Cherry Blossom trees, and these shoes they have the cherry color, and the little flower detail, and they are the wedges, which as the many reader friends of the Manolo know, are indeed the most vernal of all the shoes.

    Gosh those shoes are sweet. Fresh.

    They are so tempting the desertwind to make a clean sweep and a total rethink of her personal style.

    Gahd, I’m sick o’ my style rut.

    And the winter.

    To The Spring!!!!

    I just wanna know how they make those ankle straps defy gravity like that.

    It causes great pain, but I must disagree with the Manolo on this particular suggestion. Having lived both within and about the vicinity of the Capitol of the Peoples for many years, I am compelled to say, the weather- it is most capricious for the delightful Festival of the Blossoms. One would be most wise to consult the weather persons prior to choosing the ensemble.

    I personally have been forced to wear the overcoat of the cashmere and the boots far more times than I have been able to sport the charming footwear of the open toes and the lovely garments of the spring season to the festivities. Perhaps the Manolo could offer the gentle reader both an option for the delightful weather of the spring and the ghastly version we often get? I am sorry to say there have been many times when the lovely blossoms, they have been coated with ice on the momentous day of the festivities.
