I was so excited that Curves' bday theme was Capcom's Street Fighter. I came as RYU. The cut out sneakers from 5CM is lovely and I got it from a nearby thrift store for only 10 USD. When I saw them on the rack, I was skeptical because its white and you can see the marks and filthy dirt on it but my yaya did a great job in sterilizing it haha.
i think its 8 inches.. yes i can walk in these shoes.
look at the leather... its like sting ray leather ,no?
I've come to realize how I own a small amount of sensible shoes. I remember giving away those men's boots and sneakers to friends last year.. Good thing I still have my trusty Doc Marten's and creepers.
Just this morning , while the storm Pedring is spreading terror to the neighborhood, a package arrived. I was in a a sort of melancholic mood, with the black out and the relentlessly cozy bed weather but upon seeing this heavy monster , my mood brightened up.. I know you'll agree.
Ive been neglecting my high platforms but i think this shoes is my gateway back to that phase. haha
Actually when I was still communicating with Melville Sy, the designer, I was clueless of what fabric, color, style. Then it hit me that it should be in grey! Noritaka doesnt have a grey one pa right? hehe. I already have my beige heeless from Kermit Tesoro and a black one from Brian Evalle and so to complete the neutral army, here's a grey one from Melville Sy. I think it's gonna be my favorite , too! The leather is so soft and the platform is hidden. class!
Lloyda will always be adorable to me even in black.
hat : h&m / jumpsuit : terranova / shoes : asian vogue
The maxi skirt may be overwhelming but the rocking horse shoes have platforms giving the right amount of height
grey top : forever 21 / black maxi : Giordano ladies
Ever since I started trying on flatforms , I've learned how to embrace menswear in a different level. lol.
Im so lucky to have a blogger friend who almost share the same interests with shoes. I mean i do have a lot of friends but Lloyda Lim , i can say, is my shoe bff. I dint see this coming though. We were both on Chictopia yet we don't really talk . We met last year during the Preview Ball and that's it. We love buying shoes online. We are not the type who excessively lust over expensive designer shoes haha. Why? because we just like shoes as it is...like toys. haha..There are times that I end up confused on what to buy because there are so many out there but she always come to the rescue .
So one day , we thought of doing a shoe collab since we own a number of same shoes. This is just the beginning haha. check out Lloyda's blog for more ...
Apart from Kpop and Regine Velasquez songs (my no-fail guilty pleasures in life),I listen to St. Vincent aka Annie Clark. I always rape the repeat button whenever i listen to her songs (Marry Me, Landmines , The party). There was a time when I get inspired by her songs whenever I dress up hence , the all black goth look I had before. It may not be fantastic for the layman and the ordinary but she is overwhelmingly amazing. Her voice is a mix of doom and longing which go well with her big expressive alien-like eyes. Not the usual pretty depictions that you can give to a female artist but I know she will take these as a compliment. Her new album Strange Mercy is just genius!! I never blog about songs but the video + music is viral. that I have to share it with readers.. like flu virus. Not only my eyes are listening when I play the song , but my whole body does! ang chica lang nya Given a chance that I would be a recording artist, I'll be the like her. I wont scream or belt, i'll let my voice brush softly to my listeners...
I finally received my Giordano goodies courtesy of Miss Lloyda Lim . I wore the pants today and it was awesome. Ive been looking for a perfect non-waxed black jeans and they have it. I got the grey one as well. Anyway , if you've noticed my shoe selection these past few days do not involve my sky scraper platforms . Its because my joints are experiencing a slight discomfort. I want to refuse to believe that my bones are failing me as well. Aging is bad , physiologically speaking. Im just resting my feet for a month but I'll certainly wear my wedges again. Its funny that Ive been receiving emails from readers asking me why I stopped wearing heels . Some are even asking me to sell them. Haha, Thank you so much but I think Ill be keeping them for quite a long time .
