Manolo says, here is the latest column written by the Manolo for the Express of the Washington Post.
My high-school aged daughter asked me to ask you for suggestions to go with skirts. The child has to wear a back brace for scoliosis and wants something in low or no heels, with sure footing, and with a little bit of style.
Manolo says, ah, how the Manolo remembers his own traumatic few days in the high schoool, where the Manolo first discovered that not everyone on the football team appreciated the super fantastic shoes, shoes that the Manolo himself had constructed out of the old book bag he would not carry and the gym clothes he would not wear.
Children can be so cruel, and the gym lockers they are dark on the inside.
Still, such petty buffeting did not break the spirit of the Manolo, for he had learned that being super fantastic is as much the burden as the pleasure, and indeed the jealousy of the un-super fantastic swirled around the Manolo like the tails of the Edwardian frock coat he frequently wore to his algebra class.
Although, as the hulking Eduardo “El Bruto” Sanchez taught the Manolo in the schoolyard after class, sometimes it is better to wear the clothing that is appropriate to the time and place.
Here are the pair of the hip and sporty suede Mary Janes from the Lacoste that would be most appropriate for the high school girl who stands out but wishes to fit in.
Manolo says, here are the pair of the simple, classic Cynthia Rowley flats that the Manolo finds most attractive.
These they are perhaps something you might wear with the light sweater and the a-line skirt that would twirl about you fetchingly as that handsome blonde man spins you across the floor for the last dance of the summer.
Manolo says, here is the link to the brief article on the history and popularity of the ballet flats.
We bow (or maybe a pirouette would be more appropriate) to whoever thought to take a ballet slipper, slap on a sturdier sole, finish it in a nicer fabric, add some cute adornments and take it to the street.
Since its transformation from the dance studio to daily life, the ballet flat has become one of the hottest shoe trends – one that miraculously couples cuteness with comfort. Forget the gold and silver satin metallic finish that we associate with the typical fashion ballet flat. Check out what’s new for the shoe that is enjoying an extended stay on the fashion forefront.
Back when ballet flats were strictly a dancer’s shoe, the Mascaro family opened a handcrafted ballet shoe workshop in Menorca, Spain in 1918. After many years, the company is now recognized internationally for the Jaime Mascaro collection of shoes and bags, as well as the Pretty Ballerinas line, a collection of street-worthy ballet flats and pumps that – with over 30 styles in the spring collection alone – have something for every foot.
Of the course, the Manolo he is the big fan of both the ballet flat and the Jamie Mascaro.
Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s internet friends has asked the Manolo the question.
I am very excited, as I am about to make my first trip to Paris this spring !
I was wondering if you would recommend some flat shoes which would be comfortable for walking about for hours and hours and hours each day on the cobblestones, and yet still be smart enough not to disgrace me in the shoe salons of the fashion capital (where I plant to spend many an hour and a hard-earned dollar), and especially not in front of the undoubtedly chic Parisienne shop girls.
Merci beaucoup !
Ayyyyyyy! The Rosie she is so lucky, to be spending the time of the spring in the Paris.
She is also indeed most lucky because the shoes of the Hollywould they are on the sale at this very moment. And so the Manolo he has picked out two pairs of the shoes that are not only excessively stylish and attrative, but are also on the sale.
This shoe above, the Bateau, it is over 60% off of the regular price, the discount of over $260 of the American dollars!
Here is the Roberta from the Hollywould, another smart flat on the sale. This one it is nearly 50% off of the regular price!
Manolo says, the Manolo’s latest column in the Express of the Washington Post it is available for the download at their website. Sadly, because of the space requirements, the column it had to be cut from its original glory, which the Manolo now presents here for your delection.
I really need colorful, pointy flat shoes. I have an ankle problem and I can’t wear heels at all, not even a kitten heel, and I’m tired of black flats. Please help!
Manolo says, the pain in the ankles and feets, this it is nothing new, as the problems of the feets and the ankles they have plagued the humans since we left the trees and began to walk upright.
Like many things, leaving the jungle it was the trade off. Yes, we modern peoples frequently feel the pain in the extremities of lowerness, but at least we also no longer have the callouses on the knuckles from dragging them on the ground.
Yes, we have lost our long prehensile toes, but we have gained the shoes!
Do not worry, however, the Manolo he has the solution to the problem of the super fantastic girl who wishes the non-black flats of pointyness.
First the Manolo he would recommend to his friend this marvelous flat, the Bateau from the Hollywould in the most attractive camel color. It is on the sale at the Zappos, selling for 42% off of the usual price.
The second, it is this flat from the Pucci, the 754131, in the pattern described as the Pink Lillium Satin.
This Pucci flat it does not have the toe of pointyness, but as the many loyal friends of the Manolo know it has something better: Pucci makes the smiles! These they are the shoes of happiness, shoes that could not but fill the one who wears them with joy at having left the forrest behind and began walking upright on the feets, feets that could then be shod with the Pucci flats!
Manolo says, suddenly the Manolo he has become obsessed with the loafers, and has been looking at the loafers from many different of the designers. And as always, the Manolo he comes back to the casual loafers of the J.P. Tods, they are among the best of the best.
For the example are not both of these, the top in the suede and the bottom in the embossed faux-crocadile leather, quite handsome?
Manolo says, Ayyyyyyyy! The final three days of the Manolo’s Super Fantastic Essay they are here!
And now the Manolo he must profusely thank the beautiful and incomperable diva the Beverly Feldman, not only for providing the pairs of the shoes for the top prize, but also because she designs the shoes that frequently make the Manolo stare in appreciation.
Like this beautiful black rose flat. Perfect for the evening wear.
Or this super tough girl chic boot, with the rock and the roll sensibility.
If you love the over the top shoes, you must love the Beverly Feldman.
Manolo says, many of the Manolo’s internet friends have been asking the Manolo, “Manolo, we are the working girls who need to stride forcefully through the halls of the workingplace so that our co-workers may be impressed by the aura of power and competence we exude. But, we need the low-heeled shoes of business because we are the peoples who find it difficult to stride forcefully in the high heels. Please help us!”
Although it is the opinion of the Manolo that the forceful business striding would best be done in the highest of heels, so that you may tower Godzilla-like over your pitiable coworkers, who will quail before your awsome majesty, he is nonetheless sympathetic to the plights of the super fantastic girls who believe that they cannot wear the high heels.
And so, the Manolo he has selected three pairs of the super fantastic low-heeled shoes that would be suitable for the wearing in the place of the employment or on the street.
This pair of simple black flats from the Coach, they can go with virtually any outfit, and best of the all, they are on the sale at the Gotham City Online, selling for under $100 of the American dollars. These they would go well with the power suit of the pants.
This shoe from the Bruno Magli, it is the simple black business pump, one that would help the super fantastic girl look tailored, and it is 50% off of the regular price, so it will not break the bank, and thus throw your plans for office domination into disarray.
