Have been fascinated and in love with this pair of gorgeous wedges from Gripz for the longest time ever, particularly the black pair:

I never fail to walk into whichever Gripz outlet I pass by and ask the sales girl “Hi, can I have this in size 39, please!” with a silly grin on my face.

For those times that I managed to get to try on my size at the outlets, I always told myself “No, you won’t wear it. It’s so freaking high and you’ll be towering every other Singaporean girl if you wear this. Save the $80!”

So until the day came when I couldn’t resist no more, they ran out of my size!!!??? ):

Sales girl told me it was because this design was featured in several magazines before, hence the popularity of it. Well, shouldn’t they bring in more sizes then? I mean, since its oh-so-popular?

Girls who own this pair out there, consider yourself super lucky you managed to snag a pair!

A new kind

I realise alot of wedges here in Singapore are either peep toes, or strappy ones, with buckles, etc etc.

How’s this for something new?

Cute huh? Thought it was interesting! Looks real comfy too, height of wedge ain’t too high either.

I’m super pleased with my purchases at Charles and Keith annual warehouse sale today! I know it’s probably not the latest look, but I managed to get a pair of nude brown suede low-cut booties. And 2 pairs of wedges!

*Beams* I should probably take a photo of my loots …

I had to literally SWIM through the crowd to get to the cashier. That’s the thing about having the biggest shoe brand in Singapore hold a warehouse sale, offering past season shoes up to 70% off. To think I felt smart to be there at 10am (official opening hour) on the first day of sale… apparently I have over estimated my intelligence.

Anyway! I am really into wedges of late. I have absolutely no clue why I am so obsessed with them!

Hmm, well, maybe because they are

1)    They are a whole lot more comfy than >3inches heels and stilettos

2)    They can be easy to match with

3)    It brings the phrase comfy-in-heels to a whole new level

Plus! While wedges may not have been all THAT popular at the moment, however I believe its upcoming trend here in SG.

I see it taking us SGshoeaholics by stomp. Trust me.

The designs are getting bolder and wilder by the minute! It’s bloody awesome! Cannot stand it!

I wanna show you some of Jeffrey Campbell’s (JC) latest designs I happen to stumble upon… and I tell you, I. am. in. LOVE.

This beauty #1 is also known as JC TICK.

Like, how chio!!! Goodness!!! Love the simplicity of it, love the material (leather!), perfect heel height. Basically there is nothing NOT to love about this. If you disagree with me then you’re missing out on something that could bring you from zero to hero. So there.

Same JC TICK but in a lot more edgy design. Studs have been in Singapore for quite a while, I mean just look at those studded gladiators, studded pumps, studded whatever. It’s boring to me and it’s literally everywhere.

Just look at this baby. Gives a total new meaning & feel to studs, doesn’t it? *nods*

A few more drool-worthy from JC!

If not for the mad ass shipping as well as the retail prices (They cost approx 150 – 250 freaking US dollars can!) … I swear I’d buy them all! 😦

I’ll promise to wear different pairs on different days and repeat the cycle since they’re all perfect for whichever occasion in my life possible. Sigh, I’m sold. When will they ever be mine?
