Great Buys of the Week: Shoes from Payless Outlet Store

November 25, 2012

Sitting beside someone you like as he drives – you could wish for the time to freeze and just not stop. But if there is one thing that could make me want to end the moment, it would just be – shops.

As we passed the place called Solenad, with outlet stores waving and screaming at me to stop, my first reaction was to call the other car and asked if they wanted to take a peek at what’s these stores are offering. So we agreed. To shop.

Finding the mall’s entrance was a challenge. The stores open at 10 in the morning.  But we got in and waited.

This happened last week – an overnight stay in my friend’s rest house in Tagaytay with (as my friend puts it), good food and company of great friends. I cannot remember the last time I was in Tagaytay, so I am surprised to see alot of developments. It looks alot like the city. For several occassions, I had been invited to the events in Nuvali – to explore the place, feed the fish, and ride a boat.. but for all those occassions, I was not available.

So it was nice to finally get to see the hailed Nuvali – and even take home some good buys from the Solenad outlet stores. It is been a while since I blogged about my great buys – but that doesn’t mean I stopped shopping.

So what have I got?

This cute flats with espadrille type sole is just perfect for lazy strolls in the mall. I always love this brand – Lower East Side. Most of my flats are from this brand. And I don’t care if I wear it everyday (and my mom wash ’em every week!). The sole is made of rubber which makes it more durable and perfect for commuters like me. 

Php495 from Php995

Fioni is also one of my favorite brands from Payless! 

My friend was teasing me that I was quick at spotting discounted items. It comes with talent and experience! I had fallen inloved with pink color, and so I got this really cute heeled shoes in yummy pink color! You will kill me if I told you, I only paid Php395 for this pair!

I had to tell the sales rep to hold and reserve it for me as I choose more shoes..


I just super love it! Original price is Php950

I was also thinking of buying this cute glittery wedge shoes at Php875, but I felt that I got too many already, and I wouldn’t be able to use this more often.  But looking at how cute it looks, I am feeling a little regretful now..

We were not able to stroll around and check all the other stores, but my friends were able to buy shoes and boots from Aldo – on sale, and offering Buy One, Take One for some items. There are tons of boots for winter/fall.

Do you have great buys this week too?
