My mom is going to appear on a local television show and is bringing me as her plus one. I need something that is casual but also comfortable. — Eliza
Manolo says, the Manolo has not asked, nor was the information volunteered, but the Manolo is now burning to know the context of this motherly appearance on the local television program. Indeed, in the absence of information, the possibilities to exercise the imagination are deliciously endless.
For the example, the Manolo wonders, is the Mother of Eliza being feted on the Channel 37 Action Eyewitness News at Noon for her recent victory in the National Corn Flake Bake-Off? (Once tasted, who could ever forge Mom’s Crunchy Chicken Kiev, Iowa-Style?)
Or, perhaps, Mama Eliza is being arraigned on criminal charges resulting from the unfortunate events that occurred during the release of her new rap gangsta album?
Maybe, instead, she is the community activist, working to save the habitat of the Greater Crested Greeble, who has finally been invited to say her piece on that community affairs show that airs at 5:30 on Sunday mornings.
Whatever it is, the Manolo recommends that her daughter wear sensible but attractive shoes, because undoubtedly it will be the wild time. Here is the Cole Haan Air Lainey Chain Wedge ($142) in the nougat-colored suede and the patent leather. Perfect for the sudden celebrity!
