Manolo the Columnist

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

The topic it is the wedding on the Vermont lawn.

Dear Manolo,

I’ve been invited to a friend’s wedding in Vermont. The ceremony and the reception will be outdoors, on a lawn and I’ve been advised it will be “semi-formal”. Please help me.

Brittany

Manolo says, what could be more possibly romantic and New Englandy than the outdoors wedding in the Vermont. Such natural beauty, such interesting peoples!

Indeed, one imagines the reception with the hairy Birkenstock-wearing guests clomping over to the cheddar cheese fountain, their dogs next to them wearing the semi-formal bandanas, and mira! There is the bride! Is she not stunning in her couture L.L. Bean gown?

Of the course, all is not perfect in this Northeastern paradise, especially if the Brittany she must herself traipse over the typical Vermont “lawn”, the word which in other places might better be translated as “the pasture”, or perhaps, “the swamp”.

Thus the shoe of the Brittany must have the stylish wedge heel, so as to prevent the sinking. And it must also be somewhat sturdy, as maybe later there may even be the “barn dance” featuring the Phish cover band.

Here, then is the Tassel from the Cynthia Rowley, the handsome suede wedge in the light green that will look good no matter what the Green Mountains bring.
