Manolo the Columnist

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

Dear Manolo,

Now that July is over, I’ve begun to think about more autumnal shoes. I’m especially eager to find a girly flat with lots of personality. Please help.


Manolo says, August has arrived and although the weather remains intolerable, the Manolo has also begun to obsess over the shoes for the fall.

What are the perfect shoes to wear while hunting for the pumpkins, or watching the football games, or instructing your lawn minions to rake the leaves under the Japanese maple?

These are the sort of questions that occupy the Manolo’s mind, even as he huddles in his air-conditioned home, sipping iced tea, and mopping his brow.

But then it is always thus, no? We are fickle creatures who in the depths of winter long for the strappy sandals spring will bring, but in the summer daydream of the cozy fur-lined boots we will wear when picking out the Christmas tree.

Look! Here is the Papillion from Kate Spade, the super girly chocolate suede flat with the outsized bow that would be perfect to wear to your friend’s annual Autumnal Equinox party.
