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?

purpose of my #ootd

I love my clothes. Clothes are my armor.

Clothes are powerful. Because clothes can either attract or repel people.

People can take one look at your clothes and sort of figure out your personality, status, age…etc.

I wear a t-shirt, pants and rubber shoes to work daily. I purposely dress like shit that… That means no fancy stuff: no accessories, a plain watch, a rather plain rubber shoe. I even wear my nerd glasses. I wear my bag as a frontpack. (wearing the backpack to the front, and by doing so it will cover your stomach and you look like a pregnant human) Not appealing or fashionable at all.

But it sort of works. The plain-ness repel attention from muggers (when you are living and commuting) in Manila, there are a lot of them everywhere, they take a good look at everyone on the street or public jeepney and figure out who will be their next prey. On muggers eyes: well dressed=Money-ed.

My clothes act as my camouflage. To blend in the crowd. Which is hard to do since I look a bit foreign with my yellow skin and tiny eyes.  I have to look as plain as possible. My workplace is male dominated. So, it is really better to dress like the males.

On weekends however, I go all out. I dress nicely. Drop my glasses and trade them for contact lenses.

I make sure my dresses go with the bag, shoes and accessories. Make sure I look good before I leave the house. And that I look feminine. after 5 days of purposely dressing like a slob, on weekends I dress to stand out.

 

 

At times, I almost feel like I am living two separate lives.

In something as simple as a change of clothes.
