Shoes Lately

Sala Chaussures

Here are some snapshots from my Instagram account (celynps)  of some of the pairs of shoes that I've been wearing lately. I try to document the shoes I wear because, well y'al know how much I love/obsessed I am with shoes and I thought it would be fun to document my "shoes of the day" rather than an #ootd. I have taken this love/obsession to another level and actually just went and created my own shoe line with my sister, so don't be surprised to see more Sala Chaussures pairs gracing this blog and my shoes of the day posts on Instagram. That first photo you see up there are the Atalanta Nude Bow pumps, one of the designs from our very first collection.

Of-course being a HUGE shoe lover does not prevent me from wearing other pairs that are not my own brand. Read on to see what shoes I've been wearing lately!

Sala Chaussures - The Hera D'orsay

I wore three pairs of Sala, The Hera D'orsay which has the most gorgeous blue color and peacock feathers with metallic embellishments, The Atlanta Nude Pumps, the first photo in this post (In my opinion, you can never own too many nude pumps! they are a classic!) and The Pegasus Pump, which is kind of the piece de resistance of our Holiday 2013 collection - check out those fierce wings!

Other shoes I've been wearing lately: A green BCBG number that I was lucky enough to score at the BCBG outlet in Guam for an amazing price - love, love the color, the texture and the style. Two pairs of shoes from New Look : a great pink bootie/caged sandal and a gorgeous black number with a fabulous red bow. I went a little crazy at the New Look store in Singapore a year ago, they had some really good deals on shoes.

Another fabulous find, these Pedro peep toe heels I scored at an outlet in Malaysia a year ago. I went with a guy friend to the outlets and I was a little frustrated because I could not find anything I wanted to buy. I did see these Pedro (it's a Singaporean brand) shoes but I didn't buy it right away because I didn't think I loved them that much and I thought I could find other shoes that were better. Well guess what, time was running out, I didn't find anything better and I told my friend can we just please stop at the Pedro store again, I am going to try those shoes one more time and see If really wanted them or not. I tried them on and they looked even more beautiful on the seconnd time around and my friend who is a straight guy even said they looked good! So I bought them! I'm so glad I gave them another chance! I absolutely love the satin-y texture and the little ruffle at the back part.


The last two pairs in this post: a pair of So!Fab (a local filipino brand)  flats that have really cute leopard print bows and a gorgeous white satin d'orsay bow pumps that I randomly found at a market in Vietnam.

Sexy Stiletto Saturdays : Oscar Tiye

The two circles found at the back of this shoe really reminds me of Mickey Mouse. Don't you guys think so? It's pretty cute actually! Other than that, this pair is actually a really very sexy pair of stilettos. It has a gorgeous black satin texture, dainty straps and a beautiful high stiletto heel. What do you guys think?

Olgana Paris Dahlia Suede Ankle Wrap Sandal

I've mentioned several times here just how much I am loving the low block heel. I've featured the style several times and even my own shoe line Sala Chaussures have made several versions of it. I am very much partial to the more feminine and dainty versions and I love that other designers are coming out with so many pretty styles like these ones from Olgana Paris. I love the gorgeous blush color plus the flower embellishment adds just the right element of femininity and the dangling leaves on the ankle straps finishes up the whole shoe perfectly. What do you guys think of this Pair?

Sergio Rossi Velvet Beaded Heel D'orsay Pump

Opulent and decadent are two words I would use to describe this pair from Sergio Rossi. It features gorgeous deep purple velvet uppers with the back part and block heel covered almost entirely in beads. Even with all those factors, I still think this pair is extremely wearable, I would totally wear these with jeans and a white shirt!! It  is such a gorgeous pair! What do you guys think?
