i’m not much of a shoe freak as compared to my sister (she has like ten thousand pairs of heels!) but i’m pretty much a ballet flats person. nothing interesting to blog about lately, so i decided to write about my favourite shoes.
most of my favoured shoes are bought in australia. i love this particular brand called ‘i love billy’ and i was introduced to it by my then-housemate. i find this brand of shoes very comfortable (they use leather for most of their shoes) and well worth the price (they cost abt AUD$60 on average).
My favourite pair:
i think my favourite pair of shoes to date would be this pair of white ballet flats from marie claire. it has got 2 silver stripes on the side (looks pretty much like the asics design), and it’s lined with leather. i bought it with best friend 1 when i was in poly, but hardly wear it then because it makes my feet hot. but it’s suitable for cold weather and i’ve worn it to death in perth. i threw it away when i was moving back here as there was some tiny holes already. i still feel sad cos i really love that pair but it has seen better days. i’m still trying to find a replacement for it!
My current favourite:
It has got to be this pair of red ballet flats from I Love Billy. My ex-housemate actually has an exact pair in tan (ok, I was the copycat. haha… but I got mine cheaper than her cos I bought it at a sale!) It’s extremely comfortable and soft, hardly gives me blister unless I’ve walked too much during the day. I wish I have it in other colours too cos it’s very comfortable for work (red may not match what I’m wearing).
Most recent buy:
i recently bought a pair of shoes from gripz. i really liked the design (flat, peep toe) and the colour (rich cornflower blue with green and white glitter stripes at the toes area). that pair costs me $50. sadly, i think the quality of the shoes doesn’t match the high price tag (i’m a scrooge when it comes to shoes, so $50 is a lot to me!). the first day i wore it, the soles came off as they were not glued properly. i finally brought it back for repairs on the eve of NY, so hopefully they will last this time!
Other favourite shoes:
Mondo pumps. I like these, but the quality is simply too bad! The heel cap dropped off on the 1st day I wore them, I got them repaired and the decorative ribbon dropped off next! Grrr…. now I gotta go Spotlight and buy some nice stuff to decorate my shoes.
