Manolo Blahnik, Shopping, Uncategorized MANOLO BLAHNIK PINK CRYSTAL HEELS 5 September 2009

And so we’re back to our regular programming.. errr… I mean, blogging. Haha. Not much has happened since we’ve been back, to be honest. Just swamped with catching up with work, and then Chris has been away in Seattle on a business trip. I did, however, manage to indulge in a bit of retail therapy… heh!

These Manolo Blahnik pink crystal heels would be me if I were a shoe 😛 Strappy, glittering and pink! It basically captures everything I love – gorgeous soft pink leather, and sparkly crystals. LOVE! It basically goes with my entire wardrobe – no surprise there. The only downside is that the heel is a bit high – I think around 3.5-4 inches. I don’t fare well with heels.. so this is just for dinners and occasions where I’m not trekking across half of China 😉

However, I did an inventory of my *ahem* shoe wardrobe today and have decided NO MORE SHOES!!! I think I can feed a small country with my shoe collection so I’ve decided to 1) stop buying designer shoes for awhile and 2) throw out/give away the shoes that I don’t wear. That way, Chris might actually have some space for the whole 3 pairs of shoes that he’s got *LOL*!

    I heard Manolo shoes are comfortable even the higher ones because of the way they are constructed? Is it true? Are they not bad for the height?

    And they do look fab! Love the gem shininess!

    • beverly posted on September 6, 2009 at 1:46 am

      It’s true that it’s comfy in the sense that it doesn’t bite or squeeze, but because it’s high, your feet/calves still do ache from standing like that for hours – but there’s no high heel in the world that can avoid that! 😛

      • popcorn_feet posted on September 6, 2009 at 10:23 am

        Yes, that’s what I heard! The construction of the shoes is wonderful and…yep, you can’t do anything about the height thing but the way they are made make the actual shoe as good to wear as possible.

        SO NICE! how were the shoes you wore at your wedding? They were high,no? Did they compare in comfort?

        Just wondering in high-end shoes… if all things are equal with comfort or does it pay to go with Monolos?

          My wedding shoes about 3″ or so.. they were actually perfectly fine until the last 2 hrs of the day, at night, when my feet started aching from standing all day!
