its 11 11 11 zomg! black pumps newlook review!

Image

So since today is 11 11 11 I must! Repeat, MUST post something! Also I’m trying out the wordpress phone app for blogging and I just figured out how to insert photos.

What I wanted to talk about are black flat ballerina pumps, I’ve owned at least 10 pairs previously so I can call myself somewhat an expert on the subject!

The pair I owned the longest was a pair from top shop costing a wooping $70 on discount, but the soles weren’t big enough and the sides grew holes from a lot of wearing after awhile, and so I threw them away.
Since then all my black pumps have lasted no more than 3 months before giving way.

I bought two pairs from newlook awhile back (it was a buy 1 get the 2nd one for $2 sale for their 2nd anniversary) and so far they are holding up super well. I wear my pumps to club and all girls can vouch that that’s where your shoes will show you what they’re made of.
Thus far, they don’t look worn as of yet (see picture for proof) and are not ripping or developing holes or flaking off. Which is amazing.

In conclusion, I recommend buying newlook pumps as a warddrobe black pumps basic (:

Cause every girl needs a pair of shoes to go with everything.

Tell me your thoughts, ponders and experiences below!

Recently, I ordered and received these gorgeous shoes in the mail! For a while I thought these got lost because they took much longer than normal to arrive, but it was the Presidential Election/Hari Raya weekend so I guess the post office sorting centre took a few days off.

I got these heels because I wanted them to technically replace my awesome Aldo Destiny heels in Camel. Replace them because the Aldo ones are a little too expensive for me to want to scuff them, actually that’s not the whole truth, I mean, shoes are meant to be worn right? I’m not fussy like that, but in all honest truth, the Aldo ones are a little too loose and a little too tall to walk in, so as much as I love them, I had to put them on reserve for those few and far, seated occasions only.

First, you’ll notice the difference in colour which is a bummer because the ALDOs are about my skin tone, which gives me that elongated “nude-no shoes look”.

Next, you’ll notice the difference in the heights. Which is a good thing in this case because I wanted them a little shorter.

So I guess these aren’t exact replacements, but they’ll do.

Much Love,

hey guys, fake haul post!

I have actually bought 4 pairs of shoes recently but I haven’t felt up to wearing them and taking pictures. sooo.

Since I’m broke ass, I decided to go window shopping on etsy, haven’t done that in ages. so. here we go 😀

(clicking on image brings you to the page to buy the item.)

saw this on the front page, it SO PRETTY, it looks broken and falling apart. and it looks so useddd! and fragile. lol. I speak of it as though a bird. I love things that look like they’re destroyed ❤

from the same shop, I LOVE THESE, the shape is so pretty! but I don’t quite know what to make of the red beading detail….
it looks abit like… a plant disease? I don’t know, is it so ugly its right? or pure ugly? help me.

the perfect head band. to either have people think you’re absolutely off your rocker, or fashion forward, I pick the latter.

what it looks like on, I doubt the antlers will stay up all day though. IDK. its so fucking cute I’d wear it anyway.

thus far everything’s been from the same shop xD

beautiful scarf, for any occasion. I can see someone just wearing this, drinking coffee at starbucks. white tank and jeans.

beautiful statement making but very tame gloves. pieces like this still, I feel, are statement making, and the best part is because they are not in completely screaming “LOOK AT ME” you could pair this with other quirky pieces.

these are cuffs, they don’t come with the shoe. AKA, YOU CAN PUT THEM ON ANY PAIR OF SHOES YOU LIKE!

I love the romantic feel these ooze.

simple, almost common, design now. but still ever eerie and ever pretty.

I want this one so bad. but then again I’ve always been a sucker for wings.
the face is abit strange, but I think it adds to the rustic-ness of it, n’est pas?

OKAY, I’m going to have to stop here. I can’t window shop anymore or I’ll actually buy something.

Please tell me if you all like this kinda post so I’ll do it more often 😀

ALL ITEMS HAVE BEEN LINKED TO PURCHASING SITE, none of the images are mine. If you wanna buy them, CLICK 😀
