Pullover Uniqlo | Scarf Vintage | Jeans H&M | Shoes, Bag Gmarket
The shoes finally arrived! Someone rang the doorbell in the middle of the night, or so it felt like at 9am, and if it weren’t for the lovely shoes I may have locked the dude in the gas & electricity meter cupboard. NO ONE messes with the sleeping beast. (For those just tuning in, I bought these two from Gmarket, a Korean webmarket – here’s the post with guidelines for how to get around that crazy place) (For those just tuning in, also, I do not like waking up at double digit AM hours. Just because I go to sleep at single digit AM hours)
I must say, one of my biggest pet peeves is when shoe makers other than C.Louboutin paint their soles red. Not only are red soles Christian Louboutin’s artistic signature, but today they’ve come to represent women of certain financial status, occupation or style. It doesn’t bother me greatly that high street retailers ‘replicate’ trend designs to make them more affordable, but it does bother me when they replicate a signature, a supposedly timeless factor for any designer.
So… for those who skipped the above paragraph for any reason including illiteracy, I sharpied my sole black because the pretentious red annoyed me greatly.
As for the quality of the shoes I wore today, meh – 3 out of 5 maybe – the heels are wobbly, like most Asian-made heels (remember that the next time you’re buying). I guess I got what I paid for, but the design is satisfying so I guess I will have to grant them entry into the shoedrawer without a visa.
