A Shoe Story

Sunday, February 26, 2012



For a girl, there is nothing like too many shoes. Most people invest in good pair of footwear, cause shoe/footwear is one item that fits on all days from your, I-am -so-sexy-for-my-shoes days to I-am-looking-like-a-zombie days. Shoes, unlike clothes fits no matter whether you have gained 2 stones after your sinful vacation or lost few after that diet control. I never knew the importance of footwear up until I started following fashion blogs. I used to stick to my floaters like glue, dressup=floaters, dress down= floaters. They eventually banned floaters in my office, still nothing could or can beat the comfort of floaters. I usually walk a lot to and back from office, so wearing something fancy like kitten heels or stilettos is beyond my shoe-power.


Today, I have all the  basics right (Atleast I like to think so) I own flats, slingbacks, wedge, gladiator, kitten heel, ballerinas, stilettos mostly in blacks and beige. I feel black and beige goes well with almost all outfits. Nothing fancy or commendable, but presenting my small shoes collection.

My foot: Fashos.com



Flats: Metro & Sylcon

Ballerinas: My foot (Fashos.com) & Classy and fabulous shop

Wedge: Joves (Fashos.com)


Slingbacks: Sylcon

Mojis: Rajasthan

Snake skin kitten heels : Delhi, SJ market

Gladiator : Delhi SJ market
Apart from the above I have my floaters (Bata), green slippers(Bata), sportswear shoes (Puma & Addidas).


What I need:

  • Brogue : I remember wearing something like these in my school days, but then fashion backwards like me never thought they would be having such fancy names. Saw a cheap option of the same in Fashos.com for 530 bucks. I am still not sure whether to swipe again though.

    • More flats : Cause they are comfortable, easy to walk in and goes well with anything. Eyeing the below Inc.5 flats. I may decide on 'the' one, on my Bangalore trip after visiting their exclusive showroom.

    • Golden/silver chunky footwear : The wedding season is here!!!and any wedding is incomplete without a pair of gorgeous silver/golden sandals. I am in hunt for THE perfect one for my wedding, though for the 3/4th of the ceremony one has to be barefooted.
    Catwalk

    • Boots : I don't have any use for foots, we don't have a chilly/shivery climate in Bangalore or Cochin, but I like the idea of owning one just for fun of it :P.
    • Pumps/Peeptoes : Who doesn't like pumps, the more the merrier. I steer clear of heel beyond 2.5-3 inches. Time to explore a lil higher. I don't want to spend a fortune on the same and so, I would buy these from The Marie Claire series from Bata or from Catwalk.
    Fashos.com : My foot (INR. 1299)
    Bata: INR:799
    Bata: INR:999

    Bata: INR:1299
    Where to buy in Cochin: Sylcon!!! hands down, Reliance trendz, Mochi. Wouldn't recommend Metro, cause my 1 month old flats are on verge of premature death.


    So, what is your shoe story?. Any tips on where to shop for footwear in Bangalore?.

    @Swarnali The ballerinas cost me around 1.8k (The costliest one). I would suggest that you buy online only if you are sure about the size...I prefer to try the brands on in a shop and later buy online when there is a discount...
    @PAPS..agree, though I was smitten by shoe bug only after starting to read fashion bloggers..
    @Blogger Cherry Lane The wedge tapers to the ends ..I am not even sure if they can be called WEDGE

    opal said...
