I have a confession to make. I'm obsessed with luxury shoes. Don't get me wrong. I don't buy for the "social status" as some would be quick to judge. I actually buy because I'm "kuripot" (stingy) that way. How's that possible you might ask? Luxe shoes last longer. It's all about the quality over quantity. I'd rather have 5 pairs of investment shoes VS having 20 pairs that don't last very long. I've had my fair share of buying affordable shoes that end up destroyed after a few months. So if you ask me, the more practical woman goes for personal items that are well crafted. Yes, it's more expensive, but it will last a lifetime. That being said, my current loves are the YSL Tribute and the Valentino Rockstuds. I was so surprised that I haven't seen brides wear these shoes yet--considering that they are oh so comfy! Everybody seems to go for the Louboutins and the Jimmy Choos nowadays like it is some sort of "right of passage" -- that it's my wedding and I can splurge. Truth is, they are just like those expensive gowns---worn once and never again. So why not go for the Tributes or the Rockstuds instead? They look soooo rebellious and they are more practical because they are actually comfy. Plus you can wear it after the wedding!
Just a random thought!
Here are some of my fave YSL Tibutes. It could even be your something blue!
Go on the Waitlist HERE
1) If you know of anybody or if you yourself have an upcoming Hong Kong trip, they have factory outlets there!
2) Have somebody buy it for you in Paris -- it's cheaper plus you can get a 12% detaxe refund!
3) Buy from Bluefly.com -- monitor them and click purchase once you see an item that's on sale! It's PhP10,000 cheaper VS buying in the PH.
TIP: Don't ever buy from online sellers--some are fake. And the authentic ones are even more expensive than buying it from the real stores.
And if you are a rebel bride who wore a Tribute or a Rockstud, email us! We'd love to feature!
