Last month was a frustrating one for me. I was searching for a gladiator sandal that I saw online on the web at Nine West boutique, but the shoe is not available in Malaysia. I was frustrated and texted my friend to tell him how sad I was at that moment. And then he said, “There are more shoes in the ocean…”
Guess what, he was right! Suddenly I started seeing gladiator sandals everywhere!
Everyone knows what a gladiator's job really was. Their job was to model one of the country’s most stylish fashion items. I have to get as many pair as I can, while I can. Too bad, nothing really seemed to satisfy me, or to catch my attention in that special way. I know the pain of losing a fight to bad gladiator sandals.
But it was not until I bought two pairs of gladiator sandals last Friday. I’m totally in love with them. I bought the first pair at Topshop and the other pair at Cat Whiskers.
At first I went to Topshop just for the sake of using the RM25 voucher that I got from points I’ve collected before. But once I entered Topshop, I sat on the couch, thinking what the hell I should buy.
Yun was the one who suggested me to buy a shoe. She showed me a black gladiator sandal which I was about to buy last month. But my friend Asip said the gladiator sandal is ugly. And when I took a second look at it, the shoes is quite gorgeous actually.
After Mid Valley, I went to Jalan Telawi at Bangsar Baru for window shopping with Yun. I ended up buying another pair of gladiator sandal at Cat Whiskers.
Both are gorgeous. Yes I'm crazy. I knew that already. You guys knew that already. I don’t even know exactly how many pairs of shoes I own. I like to think of myself as a collector and not an addict. Shoes are an art and I like to appreciate this art in my closet.
I will not bring those shoes home, because my mom is definitely going to kill me if she knew. I just bought a black flip-flop, weeks ago from Reef. Well what can I say? Girls don’t buy shoes, they hoard shoes.
