Five Foot Seven And Closer To Heaven

(Excuse the lame title, I was trying to rhyme.)

(That’s my idiot skitch neighbor’s car. I didn’t bother blurring out the plate number because if you see this car in the metro, I would like you to flip her the finger and tell her that “The Weber Girl” says “your life is a joke” and “you’re not worth one bead.”)

I cannot remember the last time I wore heels. I could try going through my inconsistent outfit posts but my internet is slow but I’m guessing it’s been two months since, maybe more. When you take public transportation (jeepney and bus!) and walk tons, flats are obviously the smart choice.

Unfortunately, I have body issues; I know I’m not fat but I don’t handle weight gain well. It’s mentally unhealthy but I do not care to work on it because some people have real problems that are worth listening to and talking about so I’m just gonna skip over this Potential Paragraph of Neurotic Lulz and get to the point. I wore heels today because my thighs were not feeling White-Hipster-Girl-on-Tumblr thin and I needed some help in the form of added height.


Chloe Sevigny Opening Ceremony

When I first came across a photo of Chloe Sevigny’s Opening Ceremony platform Mary Janes online, I knew I had to have them… or at least knock-offs. It would be great to be able to afford genuine ones but hahaha, not happening anytime soon. I wasted no time browsing through Lovely Shoes and did not think twice adding them to my cart. Two weeks later, I was slipping them on and prancing around the apartment happily.

The shoes don’t have cushioning so they’re not made for walking long distances (aka the commute to and from work). I have wide feet and these already fit snugly so I doubt adding gel cushions or pads will make them wearable, let alone more comfortable. They’re very easy to walk in, though. The heels are 12.5cm with a 5cm (I THINK) platform.

The very Miu Miu, 2-sparrow shrug from Bumble B. is probably my favorite buy from Singapore. We had gone to Haji Lane a little after lunch (hours before our 550pm flight… which we missed) and most of the shops were still closed. I was sort of in a hurry so I went through the shops that were open as quickly as I could before venturing to nearby Baghdad Street. I spotted it off the street, walked in, tried it on, and bought it. I knew I had to get it because I didn’t even bother converting from SGD to PHP (until after I left the shop, heh).

I get a lot of questions asking about Lovely Shoes, especially the courier I use. I choose TNT when checking out; they deliver straight to your door and I’ve never had to shell out extra money for fees. I assume ordering bulk/wholesale would be a different story, though.

    What’s the equivalent of China shoe sizes to our regular shoe sizes here in the Phils? If I’m a size 8 here, what’s the China equivalent?

      I’m guessing a 38, too :) Go a size up for boots.

    I thought you need to order at least $100 worth of products at Lovely Shoes? I’ve been lurking that site since last year but I never get anything because of the minimum order thing. Did they change their rules? o_O
