Manolo the Columnist

Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.

Dear Manolo,

Fall is now emphatically here. Can you recommend something autumnal, yet stylish?


Manolo says, ah, how the Manolo loves the arrival of the fall months, when the weather cools, the leafs change the colors, and the costumed trick-or-the-treaters and desperate congressional candidates both begin to appear on the doorsteps asking for the handouts.

Of the course, the Manolo always loves the arrival of any new season—summer, winter, spring, or fall—for such changes demand the new shoes! But the Manolo doubly loves the coming of autumn, for after the frivolous and light shoes of the summer, it is time to return to the shoes of substance, shoes which will cheer us through the waning of the sun’s cycle.

Yes, the more sober season demands the more sober shoe, but sober does not mean somber, as there are many and obvious pleasures to be had in the good autumn shoe, such as the richer materials and the more sophisticated colors.

Thus the Manolo recommends to his friend that she consider the suede Harness Pump from the Michael by Michael Kors, which comes in the black, honey, and the seasonally appropriate oxblood colors.

    Pumps again. Yes, these shoes are very elegant, but women often need shoes which can be worn outside the office, as they do not travel from home to work by teleportation. Can Manolo recommend shoes which can be worn outside (where, after all one can see the beauty of autumn), on the street or possibly in a park full of colorful leaves and can survive an autumn rain? And which are not boots? And which are, of course, super fantastic?
    There are many situations in a woman`s life, in which a woman wishes to be superfantastic, yet sandals, pumps with heels or boots are not a practical choice. What then?

    Reasonably priced.
    Definitely cute.
    Winner so far…..
    DANG IT! Only goes to size 11. So close.

    And what an unfortunate name for that beautiful color…
