Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.
I’m a work-at-home mother who enjoys fashion but also requires comfort. I need a shoe for the spring that’s not a sneaker; something I can wear to the playground but also out among adults.
Manolo says, the Alice is the woman after the Manolo’s own heart, one of that ever shrinking minority of peoples who wishes to dress like the adult person and not the teenager or the infantile child.
This is not to say that the Manolo is opposed to the sneaker as the suitable casual wear, indeed he himself has been known to rock the pair of the old school Adidas Rod Lavers.
Rather, it is to note that the Manolo has been recently appalled by the adoption of silly and childish feetwear by the peoples who should know better.
Indeed, the Manolo suspects that it is only the matter of time before his banker, his accountant, his lawyer, and all the justices of the Supreme Court begin to sport the orange plastic clogs, at which point the Manolo will probably give up the things of this world and become the Tibetan monk. Om mani padme blahnik.
Until that time, the Manolo will wage the good fight, recommending shoes like this cute moccasin, the Donna Cyndi 3 from Geox.
