Shoelove at First Sight4:44 PM
I've seen flyers and catalogues of the latest designs of SM Parisian shoes since the fashion week last October and I never really did pay much attention to the designs because I just got fixated with Janylin and CMG among others. A couple of weeks ago, I was browsing the StyleBible website and saw this interesting lace-up booties with zipper:
I knew right there and then that I have to own a pair of those shoes. I am never adventurous when it comes to shoes and this will be the first time I would try some chunky heels. I heard they are comfortable too (more comfortable than stilettos for sure). I have yet to try...
I went to SM Makati today and I tried on a pair of red satin Mary Jane stilettos from Janylin (size 65) and I was poised to buy it already. I was ready to hit the cashier but changed my mind because it fit a little funny. The straps are the ones keeping them on my feet. I think they were about half a quarter of an inch larger and the smaller size (size 60) is no longer in stock. I decided not to buy it and continue looking for other designs. When I moved to the Parisian shoes where the booties, wedges and clogs were displayed, I saw the shoes I was crushing on. I tried a pair and it fit me like a glove (size 60). I was ecstatic. I will buy one of the peep-toe clogs if the booties would be comfortable enough for me.
While I had the shoes on, images of what I will be wearing with the shoes flashed in my head. I like how solid the heel looks. It is a 4.5-inch stunner at a very, yes very affordable price - only Php1299.75 (about USD 29.75). Oh by the way, this design comes in tan too.

Now, the test is yet to begin - how many hours can I stand and walk with the shoes on? I wonder if I can survive a day at work without ever complaining. Ha! Iris already told me she has the same pair and it's only comfy for the first 10 minutes. I'll let you all know.
