Manolo the Columnist: MK14031 Strappy Sandals from Michael Kors

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

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

Dear Manolo,

To celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary, my husband, who is a real outdoorsman, has surprised me with a weekend in New York City, featuring dinner at Daniel, and tickets to see one of my all time favorites, South Pacific. I want to show my appreciation by wearing a really hot pair of shoes in red. Please help.


Manolo sings…

Some enchanted evening, you may see South Pacific
you may see at the Lincoln Center, sitting behind a column
You got the tickets half price, from a man on Broadway
He assured your woodsy husband, that they were the best seats.

Some enchanted evening, you may eat at Daniel.
You may eat at Daniel, on East 65th Street.
And somehow you know, you know even then
That you’ll talk about that rude maître d’ again!

Who can explain it, who can tell you why,
fools give you reasons, wise men never try!

Some enchanted evening, you may see South Pacific
You may see it from the cheap seats, with the angry indigestion.
an’ night after night, as strange as it seems
the sound of mocking laughter will sing in your dreams!

Your man is still the sweetheart, because he tried his best.
Never let him gooooooo.

Manolo says, Michael Kors, MK14031 strappy sandal, in the rosso red.

    Whoa. Yes, those qualify as, “really hot.”

    Carolyn should be in for quite a night when she wears those shoes.

  2. Mr. Henry Says:

    Maestro, inspired rhyming, but concerning the obstructed views, I demur.

    Speaking as someone who has seen this production of South Pacific twice already, I can say with complete assurance that there are no bad seats in the Beaumont Theater. Sight lines are terrific everywhere. Moreover, the orchestra has 32 members, three times bigger than a normal Broadway show. It’s worth the price of admission for the music alone.

    And you should skip Daniel. Instead get the charcuterie plate at Bar Boulud next door.

  3. LaLarson Says:

    Manolo, you have out done yourself! Who knew you were such a hilarious librettist.

  4. marjorie Says:

    ahaha, mr henry (bien sur) already said what i hastened here to say! (the part about the awesome sight lines thruout the hugh beaumont theater, not the part about daniel — come ON, mr henry, it’s a 15th anniversary dinner!! charcuterie plate? FEH.) anyway: no bad seats. now, manolo, do new lyrics about old ladies incessantly unwrapping hard candies, to the tune of “bali ha’i.”

  5. Mr. Henry Says:

    Marjorie, nothing warms Mr. Henry’s heart more than his cherished prosciutto.

    As for anniversaries, for our tenth we checked ourselves into the Four Seasons Hotel right here in New York. The front desk took pity on our request for their cheapest room and gave us an aerie on the 22nd floor. All those spires and water towers put Mrs. Henry in an appropriate mood, in addition to the complimentary chocolate-dipped strawberries.

    I normally feel pretty strongly that red shoes are for little girls and hookers, but these, these rrrrrock!
