Every few months I am seized by a desire to buy shoes. Several times, male friends have asked me, “What is it with women and shoes?”
Well, shoes can make or break an outfit, affect how you move, and are the only clothing item that won’t make you feel fat. My small closet space only allows me to buy new shoes only when old ones wear out, so this keeps my Imeldific tendencies at bay.
I never buy really expensive shoes though. I know shoes wear out, some faster than others, so I try to find great deals for shoes. That way, I don’t feel too bad when I have to get rid of a pair of shoes because they’re old, or dirty, or discolored. I can always buy new ones!
These three pairs of shoes are from Virtual Mae and I was able to buy them for P1,000. Yes, for all three! Multiply had a shoe fair early this year, and VM had a promo: buy two, get one more free. Aren’t they lovely?
I also scour tiangge places for footwear. I found this pair at St. Francis Square. The quirky color combo ensures these sandals match almost anything I wear. The best part about tiangge shopping, though, is being able to bargain the prices down.
For heels I like to shop at boutiques. I like being comfortable even in towering heels, and the boutiques usually carry a great selection. I’ve bought from People Are People numerous times, and what I like about the store is the sale prices — they slash about 50% off from tag prices after a certain time. These shoes only cost me P800!
Just this week I bought myself a pair of low boots, and I waited almost an hour to get them because the stockroom had lost the partner of the boot on display. The salespersons didn’t even bother telling me why my shoes were taking so long to be delivered, and I had to call the manager’s attention to my long wait time. Well, after growing white hairs on my chin, I finally got my boots for less than P800. They are LOVE!
I’m having my room remodeled in two weeks, but you can be sure I’ll always make room for shoes! What are your latest acquisitions?
