I can't believe it's PLASTIC!

Maybe plastic is not such a bad thing if they come in these yummy colors and funky designs. Welcome to the world of MELISSA.

From what I gathered, Melissa was born in Brazil. It was the original jelly shoes. Fans of this brand say its comfy and light weight, not to mention fashionable too! With its unique shapes and designs.

Famous designers that have collaborated with this brand were Jean Paul Gaultier, Patrick Cox, Stephanie Kelian, Thierry Mugler and J Maskrey. Nowadays, Karim Rashid and Edson Matsuo are the behind the current season.

I know, it's kinda daunting to wear plastic the whole day, but for those of you fashion forward fashionistas (pardon my alliteration...) I'm sure you'd be willing enough to at least try a pair. Yes, we can actually get these shoes here in the Philippines! You can order at Just be patient because they have to source it from Australia.

I haven't bought a pair yet but I'm planning to. I remember a couple of years ago I found this jelly sandals in a tiangge in Greenbelt. It was only P500 so I grabbed it and became my favorite pangharabas shoes. It's still alive today and still as comfy as ever! I'm hoping my future Melissa will be as loyal as my other shoe was!

But its unbelievably cheaper here that's for sure.
