Manolo the Columnist: Flash from Kate Spade New York

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

Dear Manolo

Do you have any super fantastic holiday shoe suggestions for those of us who are very pregnant and are therefore having to stick with flats this year or risk falling into a snow bank?

Manolo dances,
All the pregnant ladies
All the pregnant ladies,

All the pregnant ladies,
All the pregnant ladies,

All the pregnant ladies,
Put your bellies up
Up in the air, you just threw up
Got the queasy stomach
Wear them flop flips, but now you bout to trip
Cuz another shoe failed you
You up on heels, but then you off
Throw them in the compactor
Cuz you cried your tears, it’s the end of the year
Can’t wear the barefeets

Cuz its Christmas and you gotta put some shoes on it
Feet are swollen and you gotta put some shoes on em.
Office party, so gotta put some shoes on it.
Feet are swollen and you gotta put some shoes on em.

Wo oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh oh

Look! Here are the super fantastic spangly flats, the Flash from the Kate Spade New York, the sort of shoes that will make you want to strut your swollen stuff.

    Those are adorable! I’m 41 days away from my due date and prior to my pregnancies I would never have worn flats, but have since learned of their necessity, both to help with swollen feet and also while running after a toddler. Shoes like these, and for me, the Tory Burch Reva, are a lifesaver without being to much of a style sacrifice. Enjoy your pregnancy!

    That song alone was completely and utterly worth the price of admission.

    Sir, that was satire worthy of Weird Al.

    Ignorant query: What is the original song?
