Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.
I love all the fabulous shoes you recommend, but as you know, things are tough out there, and I’m just a poor working girl. Could you suggest some office shoes that would look great for the fall, but not cost me an arm and a leg?
Manolo says, although it is true that one should always buy the super fantastic shoes of the best and highest quality, in the current recession of economic disastrousness, the monies for such beautiful shoes may not always be available.
And because one cannot go into the office with the bare feets, lest the managing director see your toes and become distracted, one must sometimes settle for shoes of lesser fantasticness.
As always, the Manolo understands and sympathizes with such plights, for he knows what it is like to be poor, so poor that you must fashion your own super fantastic shoes out of the empty cat food cans and the condemnation notices the marshals have been tacking to the front door the “abandoned” building in which you have been living for the past month.
Here is Now from the Franco Sarto, the very reasonably priced work shoe with the pleasing details. It is available in the variety of colors and finishes, although the Manolo favors the black suede for this fall.
