少ないヒール Feet don't fail me now, take me to the finish line




I've missed dressing like this. Post apocalyptic ... Something detached from the mundane. The heather jacket was given by my good friend Mike Magallanes. I took it as a reminder for me to bring back the nomad dressing that brought us together haha. The skirt was from last year's blogger's bazaar and owned none other than by Jujiin. So basically , Jujiin and Mike are with me in spirit. Went to a photoshoot for a friend's portfolio... I begged him to do the photoshoot next month since I feel the bloatedness in me but I gave in coz he bribed me with Chocnuts and Yakult tea. There....

Heeless shoes are everywhere now. I was just amazed with how its popularity grew. I first saw them at Nina Ricci's show in 2009. Then a budding designer named Kermit Tesoro ,who I only read in the papers and multiply blogs before , surprised the Filipinos by creating a similar concept yet entirely different design and feel. Like a deadly virus, The Lady Gaga invaded the world and exhalted her heel less shoes in every way she can . Since Lady Gaga is a mainstream entity, her anatomical parts were recognized, acknowledged and respected by everyone and I mean everyone . The crowd went crazy with her shoes as they would with her viral songs. Now everyone wants the experience of a lifetime as they may describe it (think: "I can die now once I get my hands on those heel less shoes" remarks ). People nowadays have become very expressive and a lot focused their self expression to fashion (the rise of fashion blogs) which is very easy. The "instant" age or the age of "accessibility" prevailed. That accessibility is best portrayed by the largest and strongest shoe brand today- Jeffrey Campbell.

Before I had no idea that I would actually get that heel less shoes. Yes it is expensive but there exist the concept of exclusivity between me and Kermit. It took me 2months to touch and fit the actual pair. It was reeally an experience. Now it's different. I feel so happy though that heel less shoes have become a household style in the brand that I mentioned. I was planning to get one and yet it's still sold out for 2 weeks already. It's a sign. Then again, If Lady Gaga can walk in them, then so can you.
