Manolo the Columnist: Olympia Sandal from Elie Tahari

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

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

Dear Manolo,

Can you recommend some sexy shoes for Valentines Day? Something that will make my husband of ten years sit up and take notice?

Janice

Manolo says, the Day of San Valentine’s, it approaches! And woe be to the man who does not sit up and take the notice!

The wheels of womanly justice grind exceedingly fine, and the man who fails to make proper obeisance at the shrine of romance will be doomed to have it brought up to him, yea unto the seventh generation.

Thus, the Manolo says to the men folk, unleash your inner Fabio!

No, this does not mean to grow your hair long and go about the house with your pirate shirt undone to the navel.

In the stead, it means that you must act as if you were the brutishly sensitive hero on the cover of the novel of romanticness, one who would, on the way to consensually ravish the maiden, stop off at the florist for the bouquet of roses and the extra large box of the Russell Stover’s chocolate.

Of the course, if the lady is dressed in the proper romantic novel fashion, which the Manolo would describe with the phrase “the stays on the corset are popping loose”, the man will not even notice if she is wearing the shoes.

Here is the Olympia Sandal from Elie Tahari, the shoe with the subtly romantic sexiness that will make you feel like one of Barbara Cartland’s more wanton heroines.

    I know valentine’s day is all about wearing red, pink, white and black but those shoes in tan took my breath away. And really that is all us girls want for valentines day to gasp in delight.




  2. Heather Says:

    I recently dragged my brutishly sensitive hero to the Russell Stover outlet in Corsicana, Texas. In spite of mass quantities of chocolate, no stays have popped loose.
