Shoes, shoes and more shoes!

Hello lovelies, my name is Nalini...and I am a shoe addict....!!!

Well, I'm joking, but I do think it's time to take a break from beauty blogging and introduce you to a fashion post instead! I just got back to Melbourne and I've been really busy all weekend tidying up my flat, washing the car, getting groceries, unpacking and cooking, so I'm going to leave you with this post which I prepared in KL. As promised, here is the shoe haul post I mentioned in an earlier post!

I admit I may have gone a wee bit overboard, but in my defense, shoes are a lot cheaper in KL than they are in Melbourne, and also, I needed some to wear around in KL, as I neglected to pack enough options! I also think that I bought four of these on my first day out after almost 3 weeks of being house-bound, recovering from surgery, so I may have gone a bit stir crazy as I purchased them in the duration of about 1 hour (that has to be some kind of record for me).

Before I go any further, I'll just apologize for the quality of my photographs, as I had no idea how hard it was to take pretty photos of shoes! I tried to take photos modelling the shoes but after contorting myself into various, uncomfortable positions...I gave up.

First off, we have a pair of black, 3.5 inch heels, which I've already worn quite a few times. They are perfect for wearing shopping, or when going out to dinner/drinks.

  


Next, we have a pair of off-white wedged flip-flops, these are about 2.5 inches and quite comfortable for running errands in. I really do like the pattern on the inner sole! I've been wearing this out a fair bit too.

  

 

We then move on to one of my favourite heels in this lot. A pair of strappy forest green/brown heeled sandals, with a pale gold stiletto heel. These are about 4 inches in height, but there's a bit of extra support thanks to the elastic ankle strap. Perfect for wearing out to drinks/dinner!



Next up, a pair of nude, high heeled pumps with metallic toes. These are all the rage now, and I have to confess I've been wanting a pair of nude heels for a while, so I jumped at the chance to pick these up while on sale. They are about 3 inches in height, so I'll probably wear them to work or out with friends.

 
Then, we have a pair of beige/metallic strappy sandals. These have a pale gold, metallic stiletto heel, or approximately 3 inches in height. The heel of the sandals zip up so it fits snugly on your feet. I'm hoping it's going to be comfortable to wear, I got these on sale.



Last but not least, a pair of insanely high (for me, anyway) black, diamante-encrusted platform heels. Truth be told, I'm not sure if I can actually wear these for long, they're quite high (I think it's about 4.5 inches). I bought these because they are a bit different, and also because they are very affordable compared to what I'd pay in Melbourne. I think they would look lovely when paired with a simple, all black outfit or little black dress.

 

There you have it, lovelies, that's my shoe haul from KL! I actually also bought a pair of black ballet flats and a pair of plain slippers for running errands with, but they're not very exciting so I'm not going to include them in this post.

I hope you enjoyed my haul post, are you as addicted to shoes as I am? While I love everything I picked up thus far, I think my favorites have to be the forest green pair and the black/diamante heels! Now, to practice walking in them...

Much love,
MM.

  8. Especially love the forest green - I KNOW what you mean about the shoes in KL - got my husband a pair of Italian leather boots there about a quarter of the equivalent in Australia.

    You've done well!!!

    Love,
    Trish_D.

    1. Thank you, Trish, I wore them just last night!

      I thought they'd clash with my deep blue nails but they actually looked quite pretty. :P

      Shoes are so much cheaper overseas, aren't they?!

  9. Welcome back Nalini! I don't blame you, KL is the best place for shopping for shoes. I always go wild at Nose and Vincci :) They are so pretty, I especially like the statement black heels with studs. The strappy beige ones are nice too. Glad to be reading your adventures once again

    1. Thank you, doll, and I love those two shoe stores in particular! Vincci seems to have lost a bit of its standard lately though. :(

  10. I'm in love with shoes! I think I would have come back with ten times more... but like you said, you were stuck at home while recovering so you probably would have come back with more if you were at full force ;) haha
    I love the ones you got! I'm so jealous :P xx

    1. Luckily the lack of storage space curtails my buying sprees!
