S H O E S

there's probably only one person on this planet who would post about xmas pressies this late. since i have a baby to take care of, i can put the blame on motherhood, right? ;)

anyways, xmas this year was spectacular. i received 2 pairs of Loubies. the first pair is Corneille Sling. i had tried these on when i was super pregnant and couldnt buy them since i didnt know if my shoe size was going to stay the same after delivery. these are a present from my little sister. they have a pointy toe but the toebox more forgiving than Pigalle. they feel very comfortable on.



the second pair is the Lady Holt Trash from the 175th anniversary of Holt Renfrew. these are my highest heels up to date but once again, they are not uncomfortable even if they're 150mm high. this was the second part of my bday present and part xmas present. i feel extremely blessed.



in case you were wondering, these espadrille from the cruise collection were the 1st part of my bday gift. i can't wait to wear them out!!


besides the shoes above, i bought myself a pair of ballet flats. i've always wanted a pair. they're simple yet very chic looking. they're actually navy and black, so they can easily be paired with most of my clothes.


last but not least, i scored these on sale at Zara. red leather and gold studs, what's there not to love? they feel very Valentino Rocktud but for probably 1/10 of the price. very comfortable height for running around with the little one.

since we're on the shoe subject, i have something i need to admit. a while ago, i tweeted about how i hated the sneaker wedge shoe trend. they just looked fugly to me. i learned my lesson, NEVER say 'never'!!! i was at topshop at the Bay last weekend, while i was browsing sales racks, hubby sat in front of the shoe wall and pointed at a pair. he told me they were nice/cute and asked me to try them on. i was skeptical but he pushed me to try them on. i did. and. i liked. the. look. omg i wanted to shoot myself. usually, when i wear sneakers, my legs just look short and stubby. these shoes have a wedge hidden inside, so my legs look the same as when i'm wearing heels. now the big question, when is this trend going to die? should i get the pair from topshop or invest in the real deal from Isabel Marant?

love all the shoes esp. the chanel flats and the first nude sling backs. I cannot wear heels ever. I can just admire people who wear them.

Hello!
Wow amazing buy! I love the Lady Holt Trash and the Red Leather Zara heels =) I totally agree with you on the sneaker wedge trend I was in Hong Kong for 3 months and practically everyone I knew owned at least one pair, and I was kinda on the fence about it but I caved and ended up buying a pair before I left Hong Kong =) haha

That's interesting. For some reason I figured the sneaker wedge was your kind of style all along. I really like the look too. I've looking at a few pairs from Aldo.

why can't you wear heels? do they hurt you??

Jamie Panganiban said...

Just my personal preference. I always feel "too tall" and it feels really awkward. I'm around 5'6'' and most of the people i'm with are rather short.. lol
