some girls just can't get enough. & if you're one of these girls, the names louboutin & ferragamo should sound familiar to you. both brands are famous for their iconic shoes: the deliciously sinful red soles, and of course, the classic vara pumps.
i was wandering around on the first floor of bukit timah plaza while waiting for bf to show up so we could do our grocery shopping, & surprise surprise, somewhere opposite an optical store & hardware store, is a boutique w/ pretty shoes in the window display. i forgot the name, but i'll be sure to return there, & when i do, you can rest assured that i'll post it up here, & who knows, maybe even w/ photos!
anyway, what's more important are the shoes that i saw: black, lacy louboutin heels, & varas in a variety of colors! the two things that dampened my spirits were that firstly, the store was closed, and the louboutins were placed directly next to a pair of.. liu lius. WTF RIGHT. were they meant to be a rip off miu miu? god knows..
so yeah. i've absolutely no idea at the moment if they're the real deal though, cuz to be fair, the store was, like i said, closed, so it was pretty dark inside. i did manage to peer at the inside sole of the louboutins though, & truth be told, the 'c' of 'christian' seems a wee little suspicious, & the sole cushions of the varas don't quite seem to fit in properly.. oh well! i guess i'll never know 'til i try them on. :D
*EDIT: i went back last week at around five-ish & guess what, still closed! AAARGH. liddat how to do business??! nabeh lah. i saw a pair of electric blue miss sixty jeans hanging on the right though; i doubt they're in my size, but electric blue's such a delicious color.. sigh. oh well. fingers crossed for next time!!
*UPDATE: okay i went back a couple of weeks back on a sunday afternoon, & tadah! OPEN. BUT. bf wanted to rush to imm though, so i only had time to go through all their shoes, find out they don't have any of my big*ss feet sizes, so AH F*CK IT. then i went through one of their clothes racks, spotted a dress by marni, didn't like it (can't even remember what it looks like! had lotsa colors though), & then i got dragged off. oh well. doesn't seem like they're going anywhere anytime soon. they've another branch at novena square too if i'm not wrong. can't for the life of me remember the opening hours (they close at seven, i think?). fleh.
