Love Love from Schu

I received a message from Schu the other day. They have GCs for me for being a "loyal customer"! During my lunch break today, I dropped by Glorietta branch to pick it up.

I expected love, but I didn't expect this MUCH love from them! I had tears in my eyes!

It had a handwritten note... I love notes! 

I immediately called my husband to share the news. Now he's probably wondering how many pairs I really have! I would take a picture of all the Schus I have but then I have to dig deep in my shoe closet and hubby might find out about the pairs I kept from him. LOL! 

But here's some I've blogged about...

The last two I've actually laid to rest already along with a brown peep-toe pumps. Suffice it to say, it's quite a number! What can I say, when I fall in love, I fall hard!

To Ruby and Jayjay... thanks so much! You've made the shoe-addict in me jump for joy! ♥♥♥

I'm a mother packer!

I hate packing. I don't have my mom's skills in fitting a humungous amount of stuff in so little space. I also hate last minute stuff so a week before our flight, I've been slowly throwing in stuff in my suitcase. If ever I have so much, then I also have time to edit. Also, I'm sharing my suitcase with my little boy and you know how much stuff a baby needs to bring.

a pair of jeans, some dresses, skirts and rompers in my list. also tights, leggings and colored socks. of course, new Schu vanilla oxfords won a space in my luggage.

cleaned my Charm and Sephora travel make up brushes too!

I can't decide what bag to bring yet. I don't want to bring much coz I need space for the stuff I'm bringing back. LOL!

From Toronto to Dallas! Excited!

Dear Little Brother...

Please get me this as your pasalubong from NYC. Would love you to bits if you get it for me. 

Get medium. Otherwise, I'm holding all your pasalubong in hostage too... LOL! If they're out of black, I don't mind getting it in grey.


Big Sis

When the going gets tough...

... the tough goes shopping!

Feeling depressed lately with work. My boss hasn't approved my leave yet and I'm worried she might not ever let me go. Maybe she'll let me go but I probably won't hear the end of it.

Ended up walking around Ayala Ave. to lift my spirits and guess where my three-inch heels brought me...

My favorite outlet store: Schu. Really wasn't planning to buy anything but I saw this low-heeled snake skin slingbacks... I'm hiding the back of my feet coz of blisters! Yuck!

And then saw also these oxfords in black, vanilla, hot pink and teal... tried vanilla...

Ack! My legs are huge! Anyway... there's also this white sandals with wooden heels with a bit of turquoise...

Guess what I got?! Wait for the outfit shots!

I do love going to the outlet store coz it's like it's on sale everyday! Buying the shoes did put a smile on my face. I'm bringing one of the pairs I bought to my trip. I have the perfect tube jumpsuit that would go with it!

Seriously Addicted

Still in the look-out for the best shoes to bring to our trip... so, how about these?! We all know how comfy and stylish Anthology Shoes are right?!

Rio de Janeiro



Shanghai in python

After I mull over the perfect shoes, I'll probably go crazy choosing what bag to bring to match the shoes. I'm soooo maarte talaga!

Call It Spring

I'm still putting together my wardrobe for my US/Canada trip more than a week from now. I'm trying to edit the content of my suitcase. Hubby won't be coming with us but my son will be with me... which means I need something comfy, something I can run around with my kid with, but still fashown!

That's a bit hard!

Well, I want to bring either my Tom's or my PAEZ shoes, but I want something to match most of my outfits. Then was at Greenbelt the other day and was eyeing these shoes in Call It Spring.

Sandals for my dresses.



But I love height! I love my wedges and platforms! And I've proven I can run after my kids in heels...



Then again... flats are nice too!



Or maybe I should just bring one pair of shoes and my aunts will take pity on me and buy me stuff there! Haha! I'm really a shoe addict!

Call It Spring is a Canadian brand from ALDO group of companies.

My MYOH 2011 Pairs

Yesterday I went to MYOH event exclusive for HavLove members. I took advantage of the invite to avoid chaos and long lines I always experience at any MYOH event.

I took my time deciding what sole to pair with what strap and also what pin to put. 

Instead of the wheel, there soles are now lined up under a glass box with a crank you turn, while the straps are on top to mix and match. 

Exclusive sole for MYOH 2011 Estampa. This one is for Tops.

This one is for Slim

Here's some of the pins... nice they have lots of Pinoy-themed ones.

The pressure of creating your own perfect pair! 

My two pairs... since I couldn't decide...

I ended up buying both Estampas design. The slim had the Harajuku Doll (every pin sold, P100 is donated to the Japan earthquake thru Red Cross) while the tops had the metal barcode with MNL on it. My Havies are simple and no fuss. I want my pairs to match MOST of my clothes. 

And notice I only got two pairs?! After the event I texted my husband I was on my way home. He asked me, "Nakarami ka?" (Did you get a lot?). I texted back, "Define marami?! Nah, just got two pairs". I was surprised he just texted back "OK". 

The MYOH 2011 officially opens to the public today until May 16.

Tod's Shirt Bags

I'm off to the US on the 29th and I'm already planning my wardrobe. I'm ok with clothes but I can't decide which bag to bring. When I opened my Preview mag and saw this bag I knew this would be a perfect bag for travel! It's light, made of supple leather and size is just perfect. Classy mommy bag for me!

Tod's Shirt Bag ($1265)

Nice right?! They have it in snake skin too!

Retails $2665

Now, how do I can get hold of one??? Mom!!!

Sha...Sha...Sya Nga!

Got my subscription already. Taray ni lola Shalani! Gone are the demure days! Maybe it's the make-up but her face reminds me of Bing Loyzaga... all you need is the mole.

Or maybe this picture?

Or maybe not. I think Shalani did a good job on the cover.

Still feelin' Brit

Saw this in Michael Antonio in Powerplant. I'm feelin' this bag. In a brit-mode I guess.

MYOH 2011: Special Invite

And being a part of HavLove, got invited to make my own Havaianas on May 11, a day before everyone else does! Woohoo! We get first dibs on those adorable pairs!

Their theme this year is all about Havaianas being the best travel buddy in the world! Click here for more details.
