Tabitha Simmons Embroidered Ankle-Strap Platform

Tabitha Simmons Embroidered Ankle-Strap Platform Sandal

Manolo says, the Manolo loves this platform sandal from the brilliant Tabitha Stevens for its playful details and bold shape. But he recognizes that it is perhaps not for everyone, thus the question: Would you wear it?

Manolo the Columnist: Gracie from Sam Edelman

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

Dear Manolo,

Gaah, the summer is already half over and I need a pair of flat sandals for the home stretch, something not too expensive, because in a few weeks I’ll have to be back in real shoes. Suggest something cool.

Manolo says, ayyy! Old time is still a-flying, and that same summer that smiles today, tomorrow will be dying!

One minute (60 second ago) we were complaining about how super-oppressive-humid-nasty hot it was, and the next we are planning for the imminent end of the summer season and our return to the cooler weather, and shorter days of the fall. As the Manolo always counsels, if you do not like weather today, wait several months and it will be different (unless you live in the Hawaii, in which case, carry on.)

In the meantime, while we wait for the end of the Summer-mageddon 2012, featuring the unexpected delights of “The Derecho”, we will require sandals in which to walk around in, so that our toes may frolic in the open air, as they did in the Garden of Eden. (Yes, it is true, the saddest day of all, was when the teeny Maniolo learned that angels wear no shoes; they do not need them, floating about barefeeted, exactly as Adam and Eve were before they ate the apple. To which the little Manolo could only say, hooray for sin!)

Here is the Gracie from the Sam Edelman, the reasonably priced, fun sandal that will look good on your feets, and not leave you bankrupted and living under the bridge in Bethesda. The Manolo is partial to the nude leopard finish, but the shoe is also available in seven other colors, one of which will suit your fickle fancy.

Whose Shoes Wednesday… The Answer!

Manolo asked, whose shoes?

Diane Keaton Shoes

Manolo answers, it is the Diane Keaton!

Sadly, none of the Manolo’s internet friends was able to correctly identify this week’s lovely and stylish personage of note.
