Manolo the Columnist

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, the latest column of the Manolo it is now available at the website of the Express of the Washington Post.

The topic, it is the tribulations of the congressional aide.

Dear Manolo,

I’m an aide to a member of the House of Representatives and my job requires that I do lots of walking up and down the corridors of the Capitol. As you would imagine, I’m not very well paid, but I still need professional looking shoes. Please help me.

Miranda

Manolo says, the Manolo he can think of few jobs more demanding and less appreciated than to be the assistant to the congressperson.

It is like being the governess for the very head-strong and naughty young child, whom you must continually retrieve from one potentially dangerous or embarrassing situation after the next.

You are in charge of so many important things, such as arranging all of the play-dates with the lobbyists, and insuring that the committee homework gets done on time. You must endure the silly temper tantrums graciously and make certain that the self-esteem of your congresschild is properly cultivated.

You must do all of this, and yet, you are under appreciated, under paid and may be discharged at any moment, on the merest whim.

This is why the Manolo thinks you owe it to yourself to have he beautiful and comfortable shoes, because if you do not reward you, who will?

Here is most fun and attractive new wedge-heel kiltie from the Stuart Weitzman, the shoe which will look very smart this fall as you go about your important duties.

    Manolo – you have perfect understanding of the day center center that is the U.S. Congress.

    Great suggestion Manolo, but if the Weitzmans are a bit too steep for this hardworking, underpaid gal, I alway suggest Aerosoles. While they used to be only for grannies, they got a new design team that is making such uber-fabulous shoes as these wedge pumps (similar to the Stuart Weitzman ones shown above) called the Aerosoles Durmure ($63.95 at Shoebuy: http://www.shoebuy.com/sb/s.jsp?Style=159669 ). Another great style (if wedges aren’t your thing) is the Aerosoles Clichey, which is a sleek high-heeled loafer-type shoe ($71.95 at Shoebuy: http://www.shoebuy.com/sb/s.jsp?Style=163369 ). Because it has a stacked heel, a wider rounder toe box and, of course, the Aerosoles signature comfort sole, it looks professional and feels heavenly. Good luck!

    Ayyyy! What is with the fuzzy rubber strip going up the back of the heel? Oh, no no no… that will never do. It makes the feetses look like the back of a truck trailer, with the rubber hangie-down thingies.
