        Hey cool, the same design? They’re REALLY comfy so I’m well pleased. And big cheers for your mum and sis for having small feet!! 😛

          yupyup, the pink and white ones with the funky shoebox? :p

          my sister’s normally a size eight ladies, she got the largest pair there… which is strange that the sizes went up that high

            Yeah the shoebox is gorgeous 😛 It’s good that kids sizes go that high though, makes cheaper shoe-buying for us!

    Was shop-shopping at the kids area once and the shoe sales assistant told me that kids size 4 was equivalent to a ladies sz 6. maybe that could be the reason?

      Ahhh.. that makes sense. Weird though, I thought it’d be the other way round.. or kids shoes would end up being a size 1/3 or something?!

    Strange, I think my feet have shrunk too. A few years ago, I wore US8, then changed to US7.5. And then yesterday, I tried on many pairs of shoes, and I fit the US7 perfectly, when I *knew* that US7 was too small before. So strange!

      I wonder if shoe sizes differ with brands, like clothes sizing does.. hate it, it’s really misleading!

    i love the YSL one u got. it smells superb!
    love it on my skin esp if it came straight out from the fridge (highly recommended by the SA to leave it in the fridge)! (hope i’m talking abt the same one, it has a pump rite?)
    you know how some ppl can’t stand the smell from some of the ysl products? esp the mascaras – funny, but i actually like the smell!
    esp this! oh, ilove the gloss too. at least i think thats what it is. comes in a squarish packing.

      Hrmm… my YSL cleanser doesn’t have a scent! It’s the exact same one as in the link I gave – is that yours too? It’s FANTASTIC 🙂

      The lipstick does have that sweet rosy smell that’s a bit annoying, but I can deal with it 😛

    No, you and your feet haven’t shrunk. They keep changing the sizes over the years… for example, I’ve seen vintage size 16 ladies coats .. and size 16 normally would be HUGE on me but they were only a little too big.. more like a size 10-12.
    Same with shoes. I used to wear size 7-7.5 when I was in high school 10 years ago.. now I know my feet haven’t shrunk but now I wear a size 5.5-6.5! And yes I can fit kids size 4 too (in fact I have a pair).

    ha! annoying isn’t it? I suppose it makes the fatbigfootppl feel better about themselves..

      Ohhhh that bugs me so much! I can’t understand why they keep making clothes sizes larger.. so now a person with a size 6 actually wears size 4 clothes now, etc. It’s so misleading.. and *lol* I agree that it makes fat/bigfoot people feel better 😛 But then it makes thinner people feel like freaks, cos they’ll be a size 0!
