Manolo the Columnist

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

Dear Manolo,

The end of the summer is approaching and I’ve been invited by my family to spend a long weekend at the shore. What can you recommend that would be suitably casual, but still stylish, and could make my legs look good in short shorts.


Manolo says, as is his customary summer habit, the Manolo has spent the past few weeks in Malibu, enjoying the beach, the marvelous weather, and the lifestyles of the rich and botoxed.

While he has been here the Manolo and his crew, the Posse Manolo, have been rolling down Robertson, Melrose, and in the Grove, the super fantastic shopping areas of Los Angeles and Beverly Hills.

The Manolo has noticed several hot trends among the young and hip; tight-tight straight leg paints, or their opposite, wide-legged jeans, suit vests, lightweight scarves, the color gunmetal gray, and the return of that old WASPy staple, the Sperry Top-Sider. In short, the dominant trend among the youthful of Los Angeles is hipster prep, the look the Manolo finds quite amusing.

In honor of these trends, here is the wedge-heeled, “Authentic Original” Sperry Top-Sider in the gold metallic color that would look great with the tan legs.

    Now there sure aren’t many Manolo-endorsed styles that I could feature on BarkingDogShoes.com, but this may be the first. Comfy and super cute!
