The Fab Crush Interview

Manolo says, the kind peoples at the Fab Crush blog have done the short interview with the Manolo. Here is the excerpt.

We like Manolo’s Gallery of The Horrors. If he had to choose one of the worst Shoe Crimes, which one would it be?

The Croc; with out the doubt , the Croc. It represents all that is evil about the modern world; the ugly, cheap plastic object that infantilizes the wearer and abuses the eyes of the beholder. They are peasant clown shoes, for clownish peasants.

Naturally, you must go read all of this.


Manolo the Columnist

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

Dear Manolo,

I am a Congressional page and I’m in need of comfortable, yet stylish, black shoes. Our uniform is a navy blazer with grey slacks or a skirt (with which we have to wear nude or black hose). I’m open to almost anything that looks cute.


Manolo says, ayyyyy! One minute you are sitting in your sophomore social studies class, reading about the founding geniuses, John Adams and George Washington, and the next, thanks to the help of your Uncle Don the politically active scrap metal baron, you are in the Senate cloakroom fighting off the inappropriate fumblings of the senior senator from the Great State of Inebriation.

That would not be so bad, but now the congress beings have discovered telephonic text messaging, and so later that evening…

SexySolon: whacha doing?

CongessPage: social studies homework.

SexySolon: oooh, hawt, very hawt.

CongressPage: leave me alone u old perv

The Manolo asks, what better way to turn the young junior achiever into the anarcho-syndicalist than by placing her in close proximity to the American political class?

For the bright young person with the need to run quickly, the Manolo would recommend the Bouillion Maryjane from Ecco in the super cute black patent.
