The very first time I became interested with a pair of Oxfords was about 6 years ago. I saw a pair of Oxford black patent oxford heels at Jose Glorietta. It was on sale and I really wanted to buy it. Being just a college student with very low purchasing power, I wasn't able to get that pair. Since then though, I've been in love with oxfords. You will see in my style blog that I've had a season of buying pairs of laced up heels because it reminded me so much of the oxfords.
Being the thrifty me, even though I wanted to pair of flat brogues, I just couldn't let myself buy it because the ones I see on the market is too much for my budget. And just recently, a fellow blogger, Aisa of Drowning Equilibriums offered a pre-order for flat oxfords for just Php650! I was so excited and decided to order white ones. At first, I really want a pair in the shade of beige or caramel but I couldn't resist the classic beauty of the white ones.
So just last Saturday, the pair arrived. It was love at first sight.
And I am wearing them now. Actually, I exhaust every opportunity that I have just to be able to wear them.

When my officemate told me that Charles and Keith Singapore have crazy sales every July-August I wanted to go there right away. But of course I have no money for it. Luckily, a friend to Singapore last, last week and i was able to purchase a pair through here. And this is my purchase for just 23 Singaporean dollars of 800 Philippine pesos.

Late last year, I was able to discover my hidden love for platforms.
I was a stiletto girl for the longest time.
I hated chunky heels and wedges. The only thing I tolerate our slim wedges.
But after much thought, I realized that platforms and chunky heels are a joy to walk on.
And so I started my love story with them.
This is not the first platforms that I bought. In fact I already bought a pair of two before this darling but they are my favorite now. I love the gold stud details on the heels. Unfortunately some of them fell off already.
This particular pair is from Ichigo by the way. I got them on sale for less than Php500. Totally unbelievable. This baby went to Coron with me. Its the first pair of heels I brought and wore with me on an airplane ride. I used to travel with flat shoes before but I'mm changing gears now. :)
I know it has been a really long time since my last entry.
Forgive me for that.
Now, I am reviving this blog again.
So many shoes already passed so I have a lot of catching up to do.
In the meantime, here's a poster from Jcrew.
I love brogues and I'll own my first pair soon :)

Sorry for the blogging hiatus. I know its been 5months since my last post here. Ever since my camera was stolen I had no means of taking good pictures of my shoes. Well its not really a good excuse since I got another camera last January. LOL.
Anyway, the shoe that I will feature today is very dear to me. Why? Its a gift from my boyfriend. He gave it to me as a Christmas gift. During the last quarter of the year, I've been looking for a pair of blue heels. Thanks to my generous lover, I have one now.
This metallic blue pair is from Charles and Keith. The style is peep toe but it doesn't really show your toes. That's why I love it! Why? Because I can wear it during moments that I'm between pedicures. LOL

The most unfortunate thing happened last December 19 during Holiday Madness Bazaar. My beloved Nikon D40, Toto was stolen.
I am writing about this just now because I'm still recovering from the trauma that I have experience that day.
So around 8:00 p.m. while we were busy entertaining customers, someone took my camera. I was talking to a "guy" customer asking about bags and dresses which I found a little fishy. Then I heard something fall on the ground. It was a lens cap. I was going to pick it up to give it to the guy and then I realized that it was my camera. I immediately ran after him and shouted "Guard, Guard! Camera ko! White T-shirt!"
Our booth was located at the latter part of Cubao Expo so it took him some time to approach the exit. By the time he comes near the exit, everyone heard me shouting. But to my dismay, no one tried to stop him! Not even one person! I followed him even outside Cubao Expo. But I decided to stop when I lost sight of him and realized I ran too far and it will be too dangerous to go on.
On my way back, I saw my friend who followed me. She was in tears. She was so worried that something might have happened to me. I might have been stabbed or something. Thank God I'm safe.
When we arrived back at Cubao Expo I was so furious because no one helped me. Not even one of the "so-called men" standing near the exit. Until now, I cannot understand why they just stood there frozen. Maybe they don't have the balls for it, or they're stupid or they know that person who stole my camera and was trying to protect him.
And the "so-called guard" whose job is to protect us didn't do anything. When my friend asked him to accompany her because she wanted to make sure I was safe, he didn't move a muscle. Another one without the balls.
If you are by anyway offended by this post, I don't really care. Leave a comment if you want. And after that let's trade places. Let's see how you'll feel.
