the shoe looks familiar…

I love shoes, you know that right? And this time I am looking for heels.

Specifically a nude colored shoe and one in black. Because I can’t wear my Fitflops for prenup. 

So, I have been looking at this Figliarina shoe for quite some time. I like it very much.

Feminine and simple/practical to mix and match. But sadly they don’t have it in my size. I have cute size 5 feet.

So, I eventually got these meshed beauties from Charles and Keith.

While I was pleased with my nude shoe, I still need a black one.

Again, I scoured the shoe section of the department stores to no avail. The I saw something familiar…it is the Figliarina shoe again. I still like it. So, again I asked for one in my size. They don’t have size 5. Figures…. but they have size 5 in black! I was like woooh! for real? I want them!

The shoe I liked, in my size, in black.

So I got the Figliarina in black. With the black color the look they project looks quite different from the beige one. This looks feminine but edgy and sexy at the same time. Just what I need nice. 

And another plus! It is on sale! (till the end of March) I got it for 1,199.00php from its original price of 1,999.00php. Woot! 

I also found something I am really happy about. I like Kate Middleton’s style. That I sometimes look at  whatkatewore.com to look at her outfits. It is no secret that she likes wearing LK Bennett shoes.

 I scored big time!I scored big time!

Well,  something looks familiar! Not really an exact look alike but still,  I believe I really scored big time!
Yes, I am “mababaw” (tagalog term for: shallow) that way.
How is that for shoe therapy?

i want a new pair of shoes

I love shoes. Shoes doesn’t judge. Shoes don’t care whether you are a size XS or size L.

Personally, I like to buy shoes and keep them, stored in their boxes. I will be happy looking at them and trying them on from time to time. I choose the occasion where I wear my shoes. I do however have shoes that are worn for daily abuse, for weekends, and those shoes that I keep for special occasions.

For a female, I have a few shoes. too few at times when I think of it.

The shoes I own are: 2 pairs of DC rubber shoes for daily work wear (we wear casual clothes in the office), 4 pairs of Fitflop sandals for my weekend feet comfort (thanks to my best friend), 1 Qupid nude suede wedge (for parties), 1 Charles and Keith white heels (used for my cousin’s wedding), 1 Charles and Keith black step in (corporate days), 1 Charles and Keith grey/wooden platforms (when I am feeling short), 1 Celine peach cork summer wedge (for my I am feeling girly days), 1 metallic pewter step in ( I forgot the brand, for parties) and the 1 Rusty Lopez black strappy sandals (used for my college PE dancing days, eons ago)

A total of 13 pairs of shoes. I only use the half on normal days. (Rubber shoes and Fitflops) the rest are properly tucked in their boxes, waiting for a special day.

I want a new pair of shoes. (Because 13 is not a good number I really have to add another one. -the lame excuse)

I want in on the sneaker wedge craze. The chunky, rubber shoe looking with height adding bonus. Been staring at them for over two months now.

If after a month the “fashion want” doesn’t go away, I start saving for it. I have my eyes on a black sneaker wedge from Skechers. I want it to add variety to my weekend shoes. And also to hide my huge scar of a blister in the middle of my left foot (ironically, from a shoe).
