Manolo says, the latest column of the Manolo it is now available for the downloading from the website of the Express of the Washington Post.
The topic it is the shoes suitable for the summer house in Maine.
My new boyfriend has invited me to spend Memorial Day weekend with his family at their summer house near Bar Harbor, Maine. I want to make a good impression, so no flip-flops. What would you recommend?
Manolo says, ahhh, the Day of Memorializing, it is the traditional beginning of those lazy, crazy, hazy…daisy…mazy… days-y days of summer, or so the song almost goes.
And these days of summer, they also bring the occasional invitation to the summer house to meet the parents, Biff and Muffy Boddlington, of the Bar Harbor Boddlingtons, who will indeed not be impressed by the flip-flopping of the latest girl that the Biff the Third has dragged back to the “cottage”, for the early afternoon cocktails and repressed, Cheeveresque family dramas.
It is especially good for the Brooke to remember that the coast of Maine, it is not the Myrtle Beach, and that the thong sandals that would have been appropriate to wear while playing the round of dinosaur-themed mini-golf are not the shoes that will be suitable for the rocky, WASPy coast of the Maine.
This it is why the Manolo he would recommend to the Brooke the Geox D Euro Loafer in the light green suede. The Geox it is the stylish and practical shoe with the grippy bottom perfect for those afternoons, when the Boddlingtons take you and their antique sailboat onto the water for the gin-fueled voyage into the rocks.
