You Can Never Have Too Many Pairs of Shoes
The last time I went to the mall
I bought mostly doggie stuff for my dog Bean.
This time I was supposed to buy something
my mom wanted but she changed her mind at
the last minute so I ended up buying stuff for myself.
before I went to the mall,
I got busy painting my nails.
Everyone who knows me
(esp. from DLSU)
knows that I am addicted to nail polish.
I constantly check the drugstore
near my place to see if they have new
shades of nail polish
and I also check blogs like
and others that are dedicated mostly to nail polish
to know more about it.
Yesterday I felt like doing
two-toned nails in nude and neon colors.
here’s a photo
I used Caronia nail polish
for the nude and seafoam colors
while the pale lavender is Essie Nice is Nice.
I used Seche Vite Top coat because
I was in a hurry and that top coat dries in less than a minute.
I love Caronia nail polish!
They have gorgeous colors and it’s dirt cheap!
So are Bobbie, Chic and Caress.
I don’t really care about the brand
so long as the colors look good. 🙂
Honestly who can tell if your nail polish
is from Chanel or Mac
unless you tell them about it
or they follow every single shade designer brands
come up with? :))
Oh, I also got this huge ass bottle of nail polish
remover because I always run out of it
and it’s cheaper than if I get smaller bottles
every so often.
You can get them at Landmark.
a 520 mL bottle is only 90 pesos 🙂
I got this box-pleated black mini skirt in Trunkshow.
I have been on the look out for one of these FOREVER.
I didn’t expect to find one after months of fruitless searching.
I went through a phase where I didn’t
want to buy anything in black or
any neutral colors because
it rarely stands out.
It ended when I was about to go nuts
trying to make pieces in my closet
that just don’t go well together
to go together. :))
(you’d notice most of the stuff I bought are in black)
I also avoided buying flats
because I thought they are so commonplace
it’s boring. :))
wrong again. why? read on.
I was supposed to buy a gorgeous pair of heels
in Michael Antonio
but sadly, the one I wanted was the last
pair left and it’s not in good condition 😦
Thank goodness I didn’t buy it despite
the sales girl’s assurance that the damage were “minor”
Because I found better ones.
I got these shoes in Inches.
The flats are Michael Antonio
and the heels are Qupid.
These pair of flats certainly proved me wrong.
silver, studs and animal print.
what’s not to love?
As for the high heeled pumps.
I usually see ones that are so plain
that it looks generic and blah
while the ones with the good design
(5k for a pair of pumps? no thank you).
So I never really felt the compulsion to buy
black pumps until I tried these :
They are perfect!
check out the texture and the tiny studs.
It makes a LOT of difference on the impact of these
shoes than if it was plain.
A classic pair of shoes with a twist.
It will go well with any outfit.
Good quality, great style and it doesn’t break the bank!
I’m definitely going back to Inches
when I feel like buying new shoes.
And here’s the last photo.
a black (again) belt from Tomato.
It’s the first time I bought anything from Tomato
and the first time I bought a woven belt.
I already have one that came with a skirt
from F21 but I figured I needed a wider one.
Will post outfit photos soon! 🙂
oh here’s what’s next on my shopping itinerary:
(for real this time. haha)
Til my next post!
Thank you for reading!
