Manolo the Columnist

Manolo says, the Manolo’s latest column, it is now available for the downloading at the Express of the Washington Post website.

It is the new version of the column of the Manolo, 300 words of Manolo-based wisdom, twice the size of the previous column.

This week, the topic it is the shoes for the Eve of the New Year.

Dear Manolo,

I’ve been invited to the very swanky party on New Year’s Eve, but I’m a poor girl. Please help me find some super fantastic but affordable shoes.

Birgitta.

Manolo says, the Eve of the New Years it is one of the most favorite nights of the year for the Manolo, as it gives your humble shoeblogging friend the Manolo the opportunity to slick back what is left of the hair, squeeze into the tuxedo (which has mysteriously grown smaller over the preceeding twelve months) and party like it is the 1999.

Even the better, it is the night when the Manolo gets to see the beautiful society womens go out in their fancy black dresses with the most super fantastic shoes on their feets, shoes that are surpassingly elegant and beautiful, and undoubtedly cost many hundreds of the American dollars,

How wonderful it is to know that at the least one night of the year, everyone is attempting to look their most super fantastic. This it is the night for the Blahniks, and the Choos, and the Louboutins, shoes that express your love of elegance and your impeccable style.

Of the course, what are you to do if, like the friend of the Manolo, you cannot afford the shoe of the Choo? (Retail price more than what “the Man” he pays you for the entire week’s worth of the drudgery.)

Be not afraid, the Manolo he is here to help.

Here are two beautiful shoes from the Vera Wang that are on the sale at the Zappos.
