Manolo says, the latest column of the Manolo it is available for the downloading at the website of the Express of the Washington Post.
Today, the topic it is the shoes for the pregnant lady.
I’m expecting a baby in early October. This is lovely and wonderful beyond words, but I’m not looking forward to enduring my third trimester and the inevitable swelling of the feets. Any suggestions for low-heeled, fashionable, office-appropriate shoes that will not look and feel like torture devices when the edema hits?
Manolo says, the Manolo he has so much sympathy for the working pregnant ladies he occasionally encounters on his strolls around the big city.
Often he wishes he could spirit the most oppressed looking of these women away to the African resort country of Namibia for the final trimester of gestation. There they could luxuriate in the pampered comfort, while being served the exotic meals of the macrobiotic ice cream and the holistic pickles in the company of the hunky Hollywood dimwits, who would provide the frequent foot massaging using only the finest of the crocodile-based unguents.
But, sadly, the Manolo he does not possess such extravagant resources, and so all he usually does is to suggest to these uncomfortable ladies of pregnancy that they “take it easy, deary”, the same advice provided by generations of the elderly Jewish grandmothers.
As for the shoes, the Manolo must sadly inform his friend that her feets they will never be the same again, that although the swelling will recede after the birth, they will always be somewhat larger. And so, prepared with this knowledge, the Manolo would recommend the quality shoe that can be worn postpartum, such as this classic loafter, the Linkedperf from the Stuart Weitzman, which is available in the wider widths for the swelling feets.
