Manolo the Columnist

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post it is now available.

Today, the Manolo speaks of growing older

Dear Manolo

I am turning 30 in August, and I want to celebrate in a most fabulous way. I thought perhaps the perfect festive birthday shoe would serve as inspiration for the whole event. [ I should also mention that I am still but a poor working girl.]

Rebecca

Thirty year of the age? It is indeed the time for celebration!

How the Manolo fondly rememebers the festivities which surrounded his own passage into the fourth decade of his life. There was much weeping and the rending of the clothes, as the Manolo, Peter Pan like, attempted to cling to the last green-colored scraps of his fading, be-tighted youth.

But, youth, like all good things must come to the end, and we must all proceed inexorably into the next stage of life, where the clothes will be less colorful and the pirate enemies more dangerous.

Happily, we will always have the shoes to accompany us on our arduous journey to the grave.

Thus the Manolo he cannot but approve of any plan that features the beautiful shoes.

And because the Rebecca, she will be celebrating the full summer flower of life in the most appropriate month of August, the Manolo he would recommend the flowered Caprice wedges from the Nicole Miller.

Not only are they perfect for the August hot birthday party, but they are also available in the rainbow of colors, and are on the deep discount sale at the Zappos, 40% off the usual price!

    *gasp* – and they are also perfect for women with less than perfect toes! And a nice pedicure can still peek through. True genius Manolo.
