This blog post is a little too late. My weekend had been so busy, and I never had a decent sleep just yet.
Cinderella would hate because I have just bought 8 new pairs of shoes! Saturday morning, I dragged my mom to the mall after I have read online that my favorite shoe store is holding a sale. It is not actually my favorite store, but since I have such a big size (size 10 or 11, or maybe 12), I have no choice but to like Confetti. Gone are the days when I would buy thousands worth of shoes that fit. The most painful part – I would buy anything that fits – even if I don’t like the design! I have worn Kickers shoes that make me look like little drummer boy. But I have no choice. I don’t want to go to school barefooted.
Pay day would come in two days, but I need to check the store because I was just not after the discounts but the sizes! More often I would find shoes that I so like only to find out that my sizes had been sold-out. Imagine I am just not competing with other girls who have big shoe sizes, but also with our friendly friends who love fashion shows and beauty contests more than anything else – gays.
So right, I got 8 new pairs. Last year, I have bought 6 and some – I haven’t used yet. There are a couple of shoes which have peeled off in the storage. So now I have learned my lesson. I didn’t just buy anything that fits. I have to check the materials and craftmanship to ensure that it would last and would age in my shoe rack.
In fairness to this brand, most of the shoes last. I have brought some pairs 3 years ago and they are still in mint condition. I just have to say, stay away from those shoes with shiny finish as they usually chip and peel off even in storage. There is heat and El Nino to blame.
I was actually looking for flats and harabas shoes (which means shoes that I can wear comfortably while commuting) but I ended up buying more and more heeled shoes!
Most of the flats have no big sizes – just plain sold out.
I bought this shoes because the sales lady says they just released it July this year. It is fun and cute. Love the zipper details.
Let’s add some spunk. Spunky yet not loud. I like it!
Whew! Last count, I have 30 pairs of shoes (not including the “war” shoes and sneakers). That’s a good one pair per day.
I still envy Cinderella for owning that glass slippers and having her prince charming.
Anyway, for those who would want to shop, Confetti’s sale is still on going. I just have this weird tendency of panic buying – just prepping for the crisis. Haha.
I was actually planning to visit Megatrade since Adidas held a Mega-sale of their products. Good 80% off. But I was too tired and sleepy that I don’t even know how I managed to carry the shopping bags.
