Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.
Can you recommend a pair of shoes that would be good for going to church on Easter morning?
Manolo says, the Manolo must admit that has never completely understood the American version of Easter. Elsewhere this day of joy is celebrated with religious processions and family feasts.
Yes, in North America there is still the ham-based dinner, but here the main event of the day occurs when the tiny tots wake up, rush down the stairs and launch themselves teeth first into the five pounds of chocolate, marshmallow, and jelly beans, which have been left for them by the giant fairy-tale rodent.
Later, at church, these same children, now under the deleterious influence of Cadbury’s Crème Eggs and Yellow Peeps, will vigorously bounce up and down, twitch, and swing their legs in the pews, while their parents shush them repeatedly.
Happily, some of this sugar-fueled energy will be dissipated by the hunting of the eggs, during which their best new clothes will be permanently stained with grass, food coloring, and chocolate saliva.
Of the course, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look your best for both church and the mayhem which follows.
And so, here is the beautiful shoe from the Stuart Weitzman in the primrose color, perfect for the day!
