Manolo says, here is the Manolo´s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.
I have a small personal ritual. Every year since I graduated from college
and found my first job, I have bought myself a new pair of shoes on the
day after Easter. This year, however, like a lot of people, I am worried
about the economy and want to be careful. Can you suggest something not
too costly, and yet also super fantastic?
Manolo says, this is the sort of personal ritual the Manolo can fully support. Indeed, the Manolo would suggest expanding it, by purchasing new shoes after all of the major holidays, such as the Christmas, and the Thanksgiving, and the Arbor Day, and the Flag Day, and the Groundhog Day, to name the few of the many dozens of dates available for personal reaffirmation.
Although, if you must limit yourself to the single holiday, Easter is especially well-suited, marking as it does the season of rebirth, and the triumph of hope and colorful summery sandals.
Speaking of the colorful summery sandals, here is the Lulu patent-leather croc sandals from Lauren by Ralph Lauren. The Manolo is partial to the color “Baltic Blue”, although the “Tangerine” color is also suitably vernal and quite fetching.
