warning: this entry is shockingly shallow. sorry think my brains have degraded
They say there are two types of men in this world – the legs man and the boobs man wtf.
And correspondingly (or not), there are two types of women in this world.
The shoes woman and the bag lady.
I am so unquestionably a shoe person. That’s the first thing I notice about anybody I meet! (next to their nose bridges) Then I judge you based on your choice of shoes wtf.
Bags are cute and all but nothing beats the leap my heart takes when I carry home a shoebox wrapped lovingly in a paper bag <3
I aqctually took a photo of some of my shoes the other day WTF *obsessive
Nola actually I happened to walk by my shoe rack. I looked at my shoes all lined up and I realized that while I can’t remember where a lot of my clothes came from unless I look at the tag, I can remember where and when I bought each and every pair of shoe and the stories that came with the shoe!
So now Imma go all grandmama and tell you long story about some of my favorite shoes! wtf. Already warned you.
I like special shoes 😀 This pair’s from Takeshita dori in Harajuku last year! They were horribly uncomfortable at first but like all shoes bought in Japan (the ones I have anyway) they become very comfortable after a while and they’re my go-to shoes for now.
Also the most suay because they’re made of some velvety suede material and every time I wear them sure rain wan and they get wet T__________T Then I get desperate enough to save them so I wipe my shoes with my bare hands WTF.
Pink comfy flats I got with Suetpants at a flea market bazaar thing at Sunway Giza last year. I usually wear them on casual weekends and delude myself into thinking they kinda look like Ferragamo flats (if you squint and tilt your head to the side wtf)
Every time I wear these out sure got people comment wan! Sandals from Bakers in San Fransisco with Soulmate Luo. She has the same pair!
A bit blurry but decided to put them in because they were my favorite shoes for a few years WTF. Got them in Kyoto in junior year and again they’re damn comfortable! Somore they’re quite flexible can wear clubbing then to work the next day wtf.
Finally stopped wearing them so much cos the glaze on the patent leather is coming off 🙁
These are a bit hard to match *Captain Obvious. I bought them from Sungei Wang for the Nuffnang Blog Awards in 09! My dress was a cream color so I wanted something bright to offset the neutrality and you don’t get brighter than fuchsia and orange spots wtf.
Ya an extraordinary amount of my shoes are pink wtf.
These shoes are damn wtf lo! I don’t really know for what purpose they were made for but they’re very light and quite breathable also cos of all the holes wtf. Dunno leh for track? Racket sports? I will never know.
They’re Tommy Hilfiger and I’m ashamed to say I might have bought them just because they were pink and Tommy Hilfiger -_- I got them in San Fransisco on the way to Mount Holyoke for the first time! Nearly 6 years ago!!!
I actually still wear them! The last time was…a year ago to play badminton cos I don’t have any sports shoes -_-
My other pair of sneakers! (also pink). I love Converse though they’re still about the only brand of sneakers I’ll wear. (although I do remember a suspect period of my life where I wore Adidas Superstars and DC skater shoes D:)
I got these off Zappos.com because during first year at Moho Angela and I would get really bored and would succumb to online shopping. These were purchased at a time where pink and green was my favorite color combination wtf. Still wear em pretty often 😀
Bought in Sungei Wang also. Not that notable besides that Angela loved these shoes when she saw me wearing in photos and I went back to the store to get them for her but no more size.
Also notable (and stupid) because the heel strap kept coming off and I remember once in 1U I had to make Desmond and Matthew go with me to the cobbler to fix my shoe.
And the other time it came off at work so Edmund stapled the strap down for me WTF.
One of the pair of shoes Wombeh got for me when he shut down Shoes Shoes Shoes in Bangsar (during his Romantic Period).
Wear it mostly for work only though cos it’s so classy!
Got in Seoul with Cheesie! Damn fucking cute! But also damn fucking painful I guess Korean shoes don’t soften up like Japan’s 🙁
When we were in the store and I was trying on the shoe, we were speaking in Japanese because that’s what the sales assistants spoke to us in.
But then we realized they were actually Chinese!! So I forced Cheesie to speak Mandarin to them hoping to get a discount since our ancestors were from the same place wtf but I don’t remember getting a discount FOL.
My newest obsession!!! Part of the Obakawa style that Cheesie and I are switching to now! (fuck florals wtf)
I bought it before Chizu told me that Lena was wearing them in Vivi so yay! i can consider career in fashion buying now wtf.
And one more on the way! Liz Lisa Style Beige Suede Boots from minimaos ordered already so what if there’s no place to wear them to in KL!
(For those who are a size 4 or size 36 or smaller, no such thing as finding it hard to find shoes your size! You just have to look)
