Manolo the Columnist

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

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.

It is the Day of Memorializing! Celebrate!

Dear Manolo,

Memorial Day is almost here. Can you pick me out a white shoe in honor of this annual fashion milestone.

Sofia

Manolo says, at the last! The summer it is officially here! Let the suffering begin!

It is not the secret that the summer in the District of the Columbia, it can be unpleasant. The humidity and the heat they are oppressive, and the mosquitos they are as thick and as importuning as the candidates asking for the contributions.

It is this latter fact which always makes the Manolo give thanks to the person who invented the electronic zapper of the bugs. This clever device it kills the pests while the electric blue sparks provide us with hours of joyful entertainment.

If only the zapper it could be produced in the extra-strength congressperson size, then this city of Washington, truly it would be the Garden of Eden.

Of the course, the Manolo he has his own ways of surviving the unpleasantness of summers in this climate, most of which involve leaving, and/or never returning. However, there is the other possiblity, which it is to put on the cooling cotton clothing and the white summery shoes and stride out into the wilting world with the attitude of good cheer.

This it is why the Manolo is so very fond of the resort shoes of the Lilly Pulitzer, because they are the epitome of the summer cool. This one, called the Juicy, it is exactly what the weather demands.

    The Lisa, as she is quite the boozhy, adores the Lilly Pulitzer. It is the uniform of the boozhy class.

    I love these!

    Dear Manolo, those auto-comments from people linking to your site are kind of a drag. It’s different when they make a personal comment and you can choose to link to their sites because they say something fun, but these raggedy-ass bits just break the flow!!! Can something be done to block the automatic part?

    PS – Lord, those fresh shoes! To sip cool drinks at a riverside cafe. Heaven.




  4. Dani Says:

    I had always thought it was all right to wear white shoes between Easter and Labor Day.




  5. Joan Says:

    Ah, I have some very similar summery wedges nestled in my closet already! Lucky me. But, I have to say that I prefer linen (however wrinkly it may get) to cotton in these hot hot days (already 100+ degrees hereabouts in Phoenix). Cotton will do, of course, but I’ll take linen whenever I can get it.




  6. StyleGraduate Says:

    These shoes are even cuter (and cheaper) in pink!

    These are great!

    Here’s another pair of white shoes to celebrate with!




  8. Fausta Says:

    The Fausta, she spends the Summer in the Lillys, both the clothes and the shoes.
