Shoe Shopping

**bought this at Greenhills RIO store for Php599.00 (on sale)

**available in black, silver and golds at Landmark for Php399.00




The red shoes and the gold gladiator sandals are what I bought during the weekend :) I'm loving it. I'm not really into bright red shoes, but what pushed me into buying this is because it's SO comfortable!!! And I can wear this if I'm having a "blah" day and it will just boost my mood :)

Gladiator sandals are famous nowadays, and you know it can cost you an arm and leg (well not exactly) but I wanted a gladiator sandals that's comfortable and not too pricey as I know this fad will just come and go. Thanks Bea for telling me about Landmark's cheaper version of Gladiator sandals. The first time I fit it, I love it!!!!

So to all on the budget gals out there, looking good doesn't have to be soooo expensive, and feeling comfortable doesn't mean you have to work overtime just to pay for it! :)

I know a lot of you readers have been buying make-up every now and then... How about shoes? Did you go shoe shopping? When was the last time you shop for shoes/sandals?

Your askmewhats,
Nikki

  3. cute gladiator sandals. i was looking at some this weekend but didn't buy any. thanks for the blog comment. i think it's hard for anyone to really accept that they'll only be doing ONE job the rest of their life. i think i'll be really happy w/nursing, but with hair...i think i'd be okay with it. i still might do hair and nursing. hehe. i still miss doing hair, but it's just not my passion anymore. i used to do makeup and stuff on people when i did hair, but i don't really do hair anymore so that all kinda stopped =( i should be getting my mac pro card, so i might be buying more makeup and then maybe advertising at my mom's spa to do makeup on special occasions =) what exactly do you do for your job?

  4. Haha I do :8 but they are mostly back in Taiwan... I have around 10 pairs here (including sandals, trainers, boots, etc.). My first love is dresses; second is handbags and shoes; third is makeup! I'm too broke these days to feed my first two loves and hence the makeup hauls! :b

  11. hey Pretty me, nice to see you here! :) when you want to know comfort, you come to the right place! I have the most sensitive feet and LEGS ever! Just wearing the wrong shoes/sandals would hurt my legs so much I won't be able to sleep (no joke here) really...i have bad case of weak legs. Anyways, they are both comfortable, didn't need to use band aids or anything :)

  15. Hi Nanzy :) i'm actually wearing the gold gladiator sandals NOW! hehehe it's comfortable :) With regards to MMU, I've used it and I loved it!!! I just didn't breakout or anything on regular make-up (knocks on wood) that's why I really have a choice of using MMU or regular make up, i use both! :) best of both worlds :)

  21. Cute shoes! I love the color of the gladiator ones.

    Shoes are the one other thing I love just as much as makeup, haha. But I've been put on a shoe shopping ban because I've got no more space in my closet for shoes. :P

  22. shocart, you can have your own! don't be envious :) I love shoes but I'm always making sure it's not over the top expensive :)

    Emilee, I want to stop on shoes but I've been giving all my time on make-up I want to divert a bit so my feet won't feel bad :)

  24. aww the red flats are so cute and the gladiators are so trendy/chic, they are also "in" over here too.. only i cant seem to find a comfortable pair!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. mhean, I'm sure your feet is not huge!!! I'm sure it'll look great with gladiator sandals too! A lot of people are wearing them and they all look nice :)

    Nic Nic, I know what you mean!! I own one gladiator "shoes" when I was in college (that was like year 2000) and yup, after almost 8yrs, it's back!!! It's not too comfortable before, but I guess we really have to search for a comfy pair :) Goodluck :)
