Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.
In May, I am graduating from a good law school. I am the harried mother of a small child, and I must confess I have frequently attended class looking less than super-fabulous. I would like to redeem myself by being the best-dressed graduate. The shoe will have to suit the traditional black cap and gown. It will be quite warm in May, so I will likely be wearing silk or linen underneath the gown.
Manolo says, ayyyyy! The Manolo congratulates his friend on her well-deserved success and on her proper desire to upgrade her image.
Time to put away the stained sweat pants and the “Law Student by Day, Ninja by Night” novelty t-shirt and dress according to your new status, as the junior, bottom-of-the-heap, brand-new associate lawyer, the person with the work schedule so rigorous that it would leave the young resident doctors-in-training gasping for air.
For the new job, the Manolo recommends wearing something stylish, comfortable, and easily pressed, as you will most likely be sleeping in those clothes more than once.
As for the celebratory shoes of the graduation the Manolo recommends the Harmony from Taryn by Taryn Rose, perhaps to be worn with the black or white linen sheath.
