Manolo the Columnist

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

Dear Manolo,

I know it’s the middle of August, but I’m finding myself daydreaming about what sort of boots I’ll wear this fall. Can you recommend a pair to fuel my fantasies.


Manolo says, daydreaming about the boots and the shoes of the coming fashion season? Ayyyy! You are describing what the Manolo spends most of his day doing, relaxing at the sidewalk café with the kir royale, while contemplating beautiful shoes in the eye of his mind,

It is clear to the Manolo that the Stephanie is the kindred spirit, for she has not let the oppressive heat and wilting humidity of the Washington summer prevent her from thinking about what she will wear in November.

Even better, she also knows that the daydreamings are reserved for only the most super fantastic of shoes, such as these marvelous soft leather boots from the Roberto Cavalli in the handsome burgundy color, with the crystals accents on the heels. Yes, these marvelous boots are exceedingly costly, over $1000 of the American dollars, but that does not matter, for the true beauty of the daydreams is that they are always perfectly and completely free.

    I always daydream (pine away for) shoes. Now is the perfect time as all of the Fall beauties start coming out. In fact, I’ve been looking up boots for several of my friends and just recieved the pink and tan brouge Miu Mius (see my Tailored for Fall 2007 post). Fall shoes are my favorites!

    Much Love,
    Hello, Lover!

    Does Roberto Cavalli ever do anything without a sparkle/spangle/flower/tassle? Really?

    I love them but I am a 115 pound female with real gym legs and I want something like this that would accomodate my 15″ calves.

    For Christina….I didn’t think so either, but, those shoes do have a bit of sparkle on the heel if you look closley in the picture….oh well. They are fantastic, otherwise.

    They’re spectacular–but fortunately for my bank account, I look rotten in burgundy and they’re not in my size.

    The leather, the shape of the boot, everything is fabulous, EXCEPT the sparkles. The sparkles are a little bit DIY, a little late-night QVC and take away from the beauty of the boot itself.

    A daydream indeed dear Manolo. Feet too big, money too little. But so beautiful are these boots.
