Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.
After reading a delightful book, Bet Me, by Jennifer Cruisie, I was inspired by the heroine — an actuary who wears all manner of over-the-top, ornamented shoes. One pair has cherries dangling over her toes, another pair looks like her feets are in a tiny corset, and yet another is ornamented with big floppy satin bows. Ridiculous, I know, but in the doldrums of winter, the very thought of owning a pair of sandals that make me (and other people) smile is a very heartening thought indeed. Can you help me?

Manolo says, ayyyy! This is the person after the Manolo’s own heart! Someone who knows that shoes are more than mere protective coverings for the feets, someone who understands that wonderful shoes lighten the heart and brighten the day.
Forget the sun-lamp, Seasonal Affective Disorder disappears instantly when one puts on super fantastic shoes adorned with bubbly baubles and frivolous fripperies. What can be more happy-making than the colors of the rainbow shining up from bottom of ones legs?
Look here are the colorful high-heeled sandals from DSquared2, with the dingly-dangly, jingly-jangly metallic ornament to herald your arrival. Ayyy! And they are on the sale!
