Went shopping today with little sis. Didn’t buy anything but saw many potential things I liked but wasn’t sure about. I’m a horrible shopper. It’s hard enough to find clothes which fit me but on top of that I’m very picky. I start thinking “Do I really need it?” “Is it worth $180?” “It’s a copy of Chanel.. I feel bad for KL!” (even though he probably doesn’t care that one little asian girl can’t afford his stuff anyway ^^;;) and it goes on… In the end I usually don’t buy it and then forget about it or lose interest in it after a few months. But then I start complaining how I don’t have clothes.
One trend which has been bothering me is “the clog.” When this long loss childhood trend and Dutch icon started appearing on fashion blogs & trend websites I was horrified! I refused to buy into it. After all I’m still pretty annoyed how socks & sandals have become “in” when people used to be rediculed for doing it. My parents used to do it! I find fashion trends so fickle! I personally believe if it looks good on you and makes you feel good it doesn’t matter what people think.
Anyway back to the clogs. I think the closed-toes ones are hideous! (Sorry Chanel & Miu Miu!). Even Alexa Chung couldn’t convince me! But then today when I walked through Sportsgirl I came upon these:
When I tried these babies they looked really nice! I couldn’t take them off my feet! Having small & wide feet I always have a terrible time finding shoes. My feet never suit sandals with single straps across the foot, but this with its buckle allowed my feet to sit comfortably & look good! Size 6 (smallest size) was still a tad big for me.. but sister says I can try wearing special shoe pads to push my feet up towards the heel a bit. The thick straps; the “studs” which held the straps down; the “clop clop” of the wood on the ground, was perfect! As I admired my feet in the mirror, suddenly I was reminded of Tsunade-sama.. or Jiraiya-sensei from Naruto Shippuuden. HAHAH :D” My sis thought I was the weirdest person on the planet. Suddenly I could see myself fighting the Akatsuki wearing these bad boys. HAHAHA. Anyway.. they do cost a handful… and it’s Winter… so I’m contemplating.
Another shoe which has been on my mind:
I have been eyeing them and got to try them the other day and was in love! Tad big again.. and boyfriend said they’ll only look nice if they fitted properly. Hmmm.. padding again??? Quite pricey though :(
Other rambles: Windsorsmith has made a replica of the ACNE boots. Not as nice though. One day.. I shall own a Miu Miu bag. Visited the store the other day and can’t stop thinking about a bag since. $1500 though… ;___; Typo has very cute lanterns.. I wanna decorate my room with lanterns! :D
Sorry bit of a random post today!
