So this was *partially* responsible for my weekend bedrest. But to be fair, I already had the sniffles last Friday. Admittedly it probably got worse because I got dragged (fine, it was not like I was hesitant) into visiting the Charles & Keith/Pedro warehouse sale.
One word: crazy. Think Confessions of a Shopaholic crazy. And after all the trouble (and stress) I went through to get there, including going up two floors via the carpark entrance (the entrance for *cars*, not for people), no way was I going home without a purchase.
Or a couple. ^^
Just in time, too, because the two flats I've been wearing to work (my green Pedro flats are special so I refrain from overusing them) are looking worse for the wear. In fact one's already bursting at the seams but I stubbornly wear it anyways.
Borrowing Anj's sale strategy, I just grabbed every shoe that caught my eye that came in size 36, and then proceeded to edit later. I did not go near the bags because it was just too crazy. Like the staff was literally throwing bags into a throng of women with outstretched hands.
Anyway, so this is what I ended up with. I've been super good and spent less than my ceiling budget of 100SGD (for all four pairs!). ^^
My new work flats. Well actually they have a bit of a heel, but not that major. This pair also came in pink, but in a smaller size. So tempted to get those, but if it pinches in the store, it will pinch ten times worse when worn outside. I had to repeat this to myself ten times before I put down the pink shoes.
Weekend shoes. Or casual Friday shoes. I'm always a sucker for garterized flats, and the champagne color reminded me of the Aldo flats I totaled in Japan.
My favorite pair. I've been wanting to get these for the longest time - I think I saw them in the shops in the Philippines before I left for Singapore. I just couldn't justify the price back then. But now they are simply too cheap to pass up. And, I also got the last pair. Hah.
I had to get at least one non-sensible pair of shoes, yes?
I was actually disappointed that Pedro did not have any flats on sale, so I only did one quick round before we left, and I found these going for more than 75% off. I quickly asked for my size and had my arms outsretched the moment the kuya appeared with the box.
The heels are three and a half inches and I would probably need those gel pad things to make them wearable, but I don't really care. ^^
