Manolo the Columnists: Moschino Platform Sandals

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

Dear Manolo,

My family is very traditional. Every year on Easter Sunday we get dressed up in new clothes and go to church, followed by a big dinner at my parents’ home in Virginia. This year I’ve selected a pale yellow shift. Can you recommend something fun and stylish to go with it?


Manolo says, oh how the Manolo loves the spring time!

Why, just the few weeks ago, we were in the midst of the twin disasters of the Snowmageddon and the Snopocalypse, and now, look out the window!

For the Manolo, the peak of the season arrives on the afternoon of Easter Sunday, when the Manolo puts on his best suit and finest straw boater, picks up his bamboo walking stick, and strolls uptown, cheerfully greeting his neighbors and friends along the way. Eventually he will reach the park, where he will sniff all the flowers, pet all the dogs, shake all the hands, and pat all the children on their heads.

Such are the small but meaningful pleasures of Spring.

Here is pair of lime-colored, high-heeled sandals from Moschino, that would be perfect for your Easter brunch.

Manolo says, it is the Monday morning in June and you are back at your desk slaving away for the man, while outside the summer softly calls your name.

“Come join us,” it says, “we are having the wonderful time playing in the sprinklers and eating watermelon.”

You are strongly tempted to quit. Who needs this lousy job, right?

Sadly, you do.

But, all is not lost. Here above is the perfect antidote to the Summertime Blues, the charmingly whimsical and fruity sandals from the Moschino.

Manolo says, on the second afternoon on the yacht, Stavros decides that everyone has to go ashore on Aegina to visit the temple. Afterward there is this little taverna where they treat Stavros and his friends like Olympians, and the ouzo flows like ambrosia.

What will you wear?

Manolo says, here is the pretty canvas and patent leather pump from the Moschino.

This would be perfect to wear with the elegant linen pantsuit, the sort of outfit that you could wear to work on the Friday afternoon when that darkly handsome man with the convertible is picking you up at the office and taking you straight away for the romantic weekend in the country.
