Manolo the Columnist: Marli Too from Kate Spade

Manolo say, here is the Manolo latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.

Dear Manolo,

My in-laws are coming for Thanksgiving, and my problem is that my mother-in-law is always making these remarks about how I don’t dress up enough. My husband is an only child, so I don’t think she really understands what it’s like to raise three young boys. However, I’m going to make the effort. Can you suggest something that will make me look super fantastic while I’m basting a turkey?


Manolo says, while the Manolo deplores the in-laws who get all up in one’s business with the catty comments, the Manolo also deplores how the most important of our family ceremonies are now merely one more opportunity to loosen the drawstrings on the pants of sweat.

And so, the Manolo must applaud his friend’s decision to dress up, even if she is doing so only to please the sharp-tongued person who should be locked out on to the back patio like the misbehaving family dog.

But, we are civilized peoples of good breeding and common sense, and so we cannot force this woman to stand in the snow, her nose pressed against the sliding glass door, watching her family eat turkey. In the stead, we must turn the other cheek, and tolerate the barbs as best we can, because it is better when we show the generous spirit to those we love, even when they are not generous with us. For remember, one day, in the not too distant future, your own daughters-in-law will wish to banish you to the patio.
