I know I haven’t blogged for quite a while.. I’ve recently came back from a long vacation and had to catch up with a lot of work after that. But the important part is I’m back! Hopefully, I could still keep this up =D
Anyway, this is a very very very overdue post of mine.. =p
Remember the spiked loafers I’ve been wanting here? I was able to get something similar and I have been loving it ever since. =)
I’ve been trying to find a pair that I can afford since the Steve Madden ones are out of my league. I don’t usually invest on trendy shoes since I won’t be able to use them much when they’re out of season =p
Here they are!
I was able to find one in an Online store named Quiet Riot! It’s a Singapore based brand, so I had to ship it to a friend’s address to get it here. Although they do cater International shipping, I was hesitant to do that knowing how things usually get lost in the Philippine Post Office =p
However, since it took me a while to post this, you can now have a similar pair from Tonic Shoes which they have available online here =) They ship nationwide and their items are available in The Ramp. They even have it in other colors! (Gold, Black, and Silver)
Tonic Bags and Shoes
This weather is making me want my own pair of rain boots! But I don’t want the usual black pair… Black ones just makes the weather more gloomy :p
I found this photo online and it’s really cute! I want! :)
These rain boots look very durable, chic, and stylish! The olive and taupe colored ones are such a good alternative to black boots since the colors would go with almost anything as well :)
Now.. where to find my own pair without damaging my wallet? :p
I have been eyeing a pair of Dr.Martens ever since they released their SS2012 Chalky collection. The collection is available in 5 “chalky” colors as the name implies and has a matte finish to it. It’s made of Cartegena leather which is very soft and light. Therefore, the shoes won’t need much breaking-in.
Here are all the colors included in the collection:
(from left to right): sun yellow, blackcurrant, blueberry, off white, and raspberry
When I saw these… I told myself that I need to get my hands on one! However, the Dr.Marten’s flagship store doesn’t carry it here in Manila and honestly, I don’t trust the Philippine post-office to have it shipped from overseas. I even visited the Dr.Marten’s shop in Singapore last June only to find out they don’t have it in stock. Until I found out the international Dr. Marten’s site was on sale! I looked up the shoes I wanted to buy and it went down from £100 to £70! Standard Ground shipping is even free! But here’s the the tricky part… How will I have it shipped to Manila?!
Good thing there’s Johnny Air! I submitted an order last July 3, and my order arrived at Johnny Air’s NY office on July 11. They had it shipped on July 13 and it arrived their Megamall branch on July 18! I happily picked up my package and got this!
My Pascal Boots in Blackcurrant! The color looks like a mixture of pink and purple, kinda like light magenta. :) I love how it gives a boost of color to an outfit without being too bold or too loud. :)
I think some of the styles are still on sale in the Dr. Marten’s site. If you want to get yours and ship via Johnny Air, here are their terms.
