My exams are over, hurray!
Batam beckons in less than 12 hours and I should be asleep by now.
Before I leave, I wanted to blog about Jeffrey Campbell’s Spring Summer 2011 catalogue (been out for a few weeks now). Loving the spring-time colours, and small town Americana vibe I’m getting from this.
& their new PINK ROCK Collection is absolutely darling. I am obsessed with pink suede foxy-wood and the pink lita is starting to look very desirable as well!
Here are a few of my favourites from the collection, that I’ll be looking to save up and procure!
To download the catalogue for yourself, it’s available at jeffreycampbellshoes.com.
& from the PINK ROCK collection:
These lovely shoes are from Cesare Paciotti, Fall 2010 Collection.
Lovely double platforms (yes, double) and details on the stilettos. Yumyum.
Now for a point form blog post:
- I am stricken with the flu & fever bug
- I am tired and need to rest more
- I have too much work to do to rest more
- I can’t cough out my phlegm
- I wish Retail Therapy healed flus
- Because I want these shoes (pictured above)
- Also, because I need to get a new laptop case and bag (leather, please, preferable less than SGD200. To last me till the end of time. Possible? Do tell.)
- Sleep Time.
You just know everyone in this picture is super envious of the models in the middle wearing those shoes.
Y0u know, I’ve been thinking…I really am addicted to shoes. I think I need help, and I’ve found just the place. Just need a sponsor, anyone?
I think the first step is to make me so goddamn sick of shoes, I won’t even think of it again. The first thing to do would be to get these pairs.
DO YOU GET MY POINT, JEFFREY CAMPBELL?!?!?!?
Okay, pretty please? ENTER ME INTO REHAB (at Jeffery Campbell).
I’m thinking that I should clear out some shoes.
I can think of 1 or 2 pairs of flats to clear out.
Any one with a shoe size of about 36-37?
Today was a good day in alot of ways. I had lunch with the girlfriends (hello, girlfriends!) at Shokudo and ordered the Mushroom Beef (Beef Mushroom?) burger. It was goooooood. The beef patty was thick and succulent.
A meeting and a work out later, I met up with the best friend to have dinner at KOP. Boy, was it packed with the TGIF (post work-week) crowd. Nonetheless, the ALL-DAY BREAKFAST made me excited. ‘The Works’- one thick slice of buttered toasted bread, one juicy grilled (I think) tomato, one small rostti, bacon and sunny side up eggs later, I was one UBER sated person.
But sorry, no pictures cause my phone ran out of batt.
Then we decided to take a walk. After resisting bling temptation at Forever 21, we went into Zara which was having its SALE! As usual, my eyes were stuck to the shoes, all the way to the shoe sale section, where lo and behold, I spotted my sexy curved heel Zara shoes I was obsessing over and desiring for CNY (which I could not afford the past 436956 times I went into Zara).
But guess what?
This time it was on sale! SGD99 from its original price of SGD200+; do the math, that’s more than 50% off!
A quick check on my bank account balance and I zoomed to the counter. These babies are now mine.
Does a Happy Dance. Cuddles them.
Here are the photos, outfit shot thrown in. And 2 of my favouritest things (living or otherwise) in the world- Rudi and Shoes! Maybe I should rename my blog to Rudi and Shoes.
Bad News: Lost a pendant given to me as gift. I was gonna get a new necklace for it too. Grr.
I like the contrast of the sweet dress with the kickass gladiators. The back is bare, but didn’t have time to shoot the back. Tossed the cardigan on in school for decency sake.
I am still Upset about the (now I’m sure) stolen camera & more importantly the pictures in it! Grrrrr. I know the whole experience & memories are more important, but memories fade and pictures serve as a fantastic physical capture of the moments. Alas, I have to satisfy myself with ‘refurbishing’ my photo album with ‘koped’/’grabbed’ pictures from my friends Facebook. I pray to God that they are as huge camwhores that I think they are and will have more than enough pictures capturing significant moments (like my jumps and poses at the Step Pyramids, Pyramids of Giza, especially the Great Pyramid & Luxor Temple & Karnak Temple in Egypt, and the breathtaking view from the mountain-top at Al Ain in UAE!).
In any case, in my search for photos, I stumbled across a fantastic shot of gorgeously beaded shoes and slippers that can be found in the Middle East.
I tried on a few myself, unfortunately my feet did not find them too comfortable & I was broke. Nonetheless, they are incredibly pretty to look at!
Other buys from Dubai were:
Nine West Ankle Booties & Nine West Strappy Heels (together they cost less than SGD 100)
Forever 21 Oxfords
Pictures courtesy of my phone.
More pics to come as I compile photos from the trip!
1. A silver envelope card holder from Helen Kelly at Cityluxe (in Ion).
40% off, silver (so boomz) and absolutely adorable- silver on the outside, royal purple on the inside ❤
Also come in other colours…Beware though, that shop can really draw you in and make you buy ‘un-needed’ things.
Visited the featured shoe store (in last week’s Urban).
In case you haven’t read it, its a little store at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10, Blk 410.
They sell leather shoes at affordable prices.
Both pairs cost $29 each, but hurry fast! Sizes are running out, I’m a size 5 and didn’t have many design choices left.
But if you’re a size 3 or 4, good news all around for you!
It’s called Star Tech Management (I don’t understand the name either).
Haven’t broken them in yet. Feeling a little scared of blisters (it really does fit just right).
I thought all they did was slogan teeshirts. I’m impressed.
Reminds me of a cross between Chanel&Ann Demeulemeester though. The colour combi and straps perhaps?
These look freaking fun.
I wanna put them on and dance around to ‘Good Girls Gone Bad’.
