I really wanted to blog about my brand new Melissa pairs earlier. I got them for such a steal! But the busyness of December got to me, and before I knew it, the sale on AVA.ph was almost over. And by then, what was the point? It’d be like bragging about my shoes while you can’t get yours.
But I just received word that the sale has been extended up to December 23! Woohoo!
Looky looky what I scored. I’m such a fan of Melissa’s, so I couldn’t resist:
Melissa x Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragon heels (at 50% off on AVA)
I wasn’t actually planning on buying this at all, but when I saw it in person, wow! It looked so much better than the photo. I knew immediately I’d go home with it. There were no second thoughts about it. It kinda reminds me of my Malibu Barbie’s shoes though, haha! I wore them to the last Bloggers United bazaar.
And then, I was planning on getting the Alexander Herchcovitch Troupe Wedge in black, but I wanted to get it one size higher after fitting my regular size 7. Unfortunately, there weren’t any stocks for a size 8 left. That brought me back to a pair of Joy Maskrey–another shoe that was way better than it looked in photos and which I lusted for after first sight. I hesitated at first because it had Swarovski in it–I just know I’m going to lose them! I’m not very delicate with shoes. I tend to rough them up a lot. But finally, vanity won over. When I couldn’t get the Alexander wedge, I went back to my first choice. I’ve worn this almost everyday for the past 2 weeks. No regrets.
I’ve always ALWAYS loved Melissa shoes, but I find them a bit expensive. That’s why I definitely couldn’t pass up this sale! I’ve limited myself to two pairs, though…but if I had a bigger budget this Christmas, I’d buy at least 4 pairs. I wish they featured some of the other styles, too, but anyway, with the deals I got, I’m not complaining.Related posts:
