When I was in London, I went really crazy with New Look! There was this one particular branch of New Look I get to pass by while walking from the office to my pad. And yes, I entered the shop every single night after office! And most of the time, I went out with a plastic bag on my hand! Looking back, no wonder my luggages were overweight. Being there for almost 2 months gave me real problems going home. LOL! πŸ˜€ New Look is like the Forever 21 of London, just a bit pricier but still cheaper compared to Topshop. I love their stylish clothes and their wide array of shoe choices. It’s where I bought my caged sandals and leather booties. Despite their 4″ heels, they are still the comfiest pairs I’ve got when it comes to heeled shoes. I can say, my love for shoes all began when I bought these two. πŸ™‚

I have always been a bag lover more than a shoe lover. But now, is it becoming the other way around??? I hope not! LOL! πŸ˜€ Probably because I have already made a vow when it comes to buying bags- that is, I can only buy when I’m abroad, specifically outside Asia (since designer bags are a lot more expensive in Asia than in Europe or U.S.). And since I’ve been travelling around Asia these past few months, my bag purchase for the year stopped with my Chanel GST, which was last May 2010. Hehe! Well, I can’t really congratulate myself for having the patience and self-control ‘coz I really don’t have that. LOL! I think I set my eyes on shoes to distract myself! It’s only now that I realized that starting mid-November up to this date, I bought 7 pairs of shoes already! πŸ™ I can’t even remember all the shoes I bought since I got back from London, where this shoe craze started. I remember having shipped 5 pairs from the States last June. Then, I got several shoes on my trips this year instead of bags. I think 2010 is a year of shoes for me! Thinking about it, I actually bought over 30 pairs for the year! Waaaah! That’s too much for me! πŸ™ I’m on bag ban and now, on shoe ban! And I’m nearly on gadget ban too, I tell you! So what’s left?! Ugh! But I’m really liking my dear friend’s (MFJ) new loot from Jeffrey Campbell, as seen in her post. Oh noez! Please stop me!!! LOL! πŸ˜€

Anyway, enogh of my rant. Sorry ’bout that. As I write this post, I just realized how much I have spent on shoes for the year. Tsk tsk tsk… And thinking about it, 80% of which are high heels! Ugh! It’s all New Look’s fault. My shoe craze all started there. Hahaha! Okay fine, and my bag vow. LOL! πŸ˜€ And now, here’s another New Look find when I went to Singapore last month. Just imagine my joy when I was reunited with New Look! πŸ˜€ I spent an hour in the shoe section until I decided to get one pair. Yes, only one pair. Well, I didn’t had any choice then ‘coz our luggage can only fit one pair of bulky shoes. Ummm… Because I already went shoe shopping the day before I got this. LOL! So expect several shoe break-ins in the days to come… Hehe! πŸ˜€ Anyhoo, without further ado, here’s my new suede ankle boots with button details from New Look. πŸ™‚




I find it really gorgeous! πŸ˜€ I can pair it with a dress, tights or jeans. It can make a casual outfit look fab. It can make me look dressed up effortlessly. And the comfort? Like any of my shoes from New Look, it really is uber comfy to wear despite the 4 inches heels. πŸ™‚


And the price? It’s GBP 29.99 (as seen in their website) or a little more than PHP 2,000. Sorry, I forgot how much I bought them in Singapore, but from what I remember, it’s a bit more expensive than this. I personally think it’s still a good buy though. πŸ˜€ What do you think? πŸ˜‰
