Ultra cute and sparkly Christmas flats? Count me in! More often than not, I’d rather accessorize with sewn-in bling rather than pile a ton of accessories on top of each other. I always try my best to look as chic as possible using the least number of items. Seems like age has really turned me into a practical dresser!
I opted for Le Bunny Bleu’s Sina flats to a whole day of errands and meetings, and to a night out with Rg as we celebrated our 3rd anniversary together! The lack of heels make it casual enough for daytime use, while the presence of embellishments make it dressy enough for a date. If you’re looking for the perfect sophisticute (sophisticated and cute) pair of flats for everyday use, this is it! It also comes in brown/beige if you prefer something lighter that can also suit your spring/summer wardrobe.
There is an on-going sale for those who want first dibs on stocks and sizes (best to go today before people go crazy), but starting tomorrow, January 27, the entire fall/winter collection (examples here) will be 50% off!
This includes all their flats (including the ones I’m wearing here), sneakers, and boots. Time to stock up on these romantic vintage shoes that many K-pop stars love (examples here)! Totally eyeing the Viola loafers, thanks to a photo of a Crayon Pop member wearing them, so I’ll definitely drop by the store during the sale! See you there!
Visit them at 5th floor Bridgeway, East Wing Shangri-la Plaza (654-2599) and 2nd floor Glorietta 5 (955-7225).
Sharing the newest F/W collection of Le Bunny Bleu because it is absolute shoe porn! As I often mention, I’m generally biased towards F/W collections, and this one is not an exception. The amount of holiday colors in this collection is making my fangirl heart beat so fast!
Everything is classy and perfect for everyday use, and you can even own a limited edition Winter Notebook with Crissey's work on the cover if you buy a pair any time soon. Her signature cutesy illustrations are also all over the stores so it makes shopping in Le Bunny Bleu even more enjoyable. Proud BFF moment! I'm Crissey's #1 fan… but you guys all know that already! <3
You can choose which cover to get if you buy a pair from the latest collection. My (obvious) favorite would have to be the girl with roses on her hair! Which Le Bunny Bleu girl is your favorite?
Oxfords that would look great with skater skirts!
I got these spiked zebra ones for myself!
They also recently came out with a new Le Bunny Bleu kids line! I’d totally want to wear matching shoes with my future daughter!
Perfect flats to go with your favorite skinny pants.
High boots for when the weather gets cooler in January/February!
Want the left one so bad!!! The shade of red looks delicious.
For all you pointy toe lovers!
The quintessential Trissey design. I don’t know if we can ever get over sparkly, girly bows!
Wanted to get these too but I have too many oxfords, I think D:
Hope you guys enjoyed that little tour around the Le Bunny Bleu flagship store in Shangri-la East Wing! If you haven’t seen my first post about them yet, you can check it out here. I mentioned that a lot of K-pop stars wear Le Bunny Bleu so you should definitely check the brand out if you’re a fan of K-everything! Crissey is also giving away some notebooks here.
They are having a special ONE DAY SALE tomorrow, November 23. PERFECT TIME TO SHOP FOR YOUR VERY OWN LE BUNNY BLEU SHOES! Enjoy!
I’m back from Japan, but in less than 10 days, I’ll be flying again. And this time, I’ll be in the US for 3 weeks, which is the longest “vacation” I’ll ever have in my life. I’m already excited about all the Instagram-ready pictures I have yet to take! Maybe you can bump into me at some tourist-y place or at some popular shopping destination if you happen to be in the same state!
Speaking of America, I visited the Steve Madden store at Shangri-la earlier to check out their newest collection. My first pair of Steve Madden shoes was given to me by my mom 9-10 years ago, as a gift from the US. Back then, sneakers were all the rage, but it was hard to find ones like 12-eye high tops. I got an olive green pair with a pink plaid pattern on the inside that you could show off if you folded the sneakers outwards. My first Steve Madden experience was wonderful because I didn’t know anyone in my circle who owned the exact same pair, and because those sneakers lasted me a good 8 years before they decided to die on me.
I couldn’t contain all my feels when I found out they opened in Manila. I often pass by their store in Eastwood simply because I live quite near, but I enjoy shopping at the Shang branch better because the store is so big!
The space makes you want to set up a tent in the middle of the store, and spend a whole night enjoying the silent sound of shoes (what). The things I think of for the love of footwear.
Major shoe lust. I already have a similar pair, but these ones are dying to be in my shoe rack. I can already see the styling possibilities…
Black and gold is always a classy combination.
Steve Madden’s best sellers, which I knew were best sellers even before I asked the salesladies. Heels higher than 3-4 inches may seem intimidating at first, but I swear these babies make walking in style seem so much easier. The thick platform in front makes up for the dangerous heel height, making this style perfect for those who want a major height boost without skimping on comfort.
Studded nude satchel to go with your nude platform pumps.
No-platform heels are totally back! I’ve been warming up to this style recently, with my style maturing and all. Makes your feet look instantly sexy! I can already see that patterned t-strap pair with a black pencil skirt and a cream pullover.
Golden heels for the golden girl.
Flats with a simple twist!
Love these ones so much! I also tried them on and the platforms really make walking in heels so easy.
With all the gold details in the lastest collection, why not pair it with gold studded backpacks as well?
Glitters for the holidays.
Remnants of spring. These would look good with denim!
Not your ordinary sneaker wedges.
Mint and peach wedges. Yummy!
GUYS, THESE ARE 45% OFF
Gold and studs everywhere.
Bling it on.
Perfect everyday work shoes! The black ones with gold studs, omg
The studs reminds me of fish eyes. Now you cannot unsee.
Statement flats that you can blind you from a mile away.
More bling shoes for all the parties you have to attend this Christmas season.
Studs and spikes.
Close-up. I can’t imagine how much effort was put into making this shoe.
All I can see in this picture are eyebrows.
Tried some shoes out, and found this cool pair of wedge boots!
90s feels! Brings me back to my Spice Girls childhood.
Trying out their best-selling black pumps! I walked around the store in them and did not feel any discomfort! Thinking if I should get the nude-colored ones…
Last but not the least of my favorites. <3 It also comes in brown!
Blue-gray and brown chunky sneaker wedges.
Spikes on jelly sandals.
Dark florals for F/W, light florals for S/S. I can’t choose which I like better.
Hope you had fun “window shopping” at Steve Madden as much as I did! The salesladies were also very commendable because they gave me so much useful information about Steve Madden shoes. They offer half-sizes for most of their styles, which is perfect for those girls with feet that are not-quite one size, not-quite another. They are also holding a promo right now!

Have fun shopping!
Took some time off last weekend to visit Le Bunny Bleu with Crissey. I actually already wore this brand last February 2012, when LeBunny Bleu New York contacted me to wear their shoes! Of course, being easily enticed by all things cute, I agreed without a doubt!
This time, now that they just opened in Manila, I just want to help spread the news about them as I really love the brand from the bottom of my blogger heart. It’s not hard to love them, really! Even K-pop girl groups love their shoes!
SNSD Seohyun and Sica wearing the same gold shoes during IGAB perfs, Taeyeon wearing the most adorable tiffany blue accent oxfords, 4minute Hyuna and SISTAR Dasom wearing the same oxfords in different colors, and Wonder Girls Sohee wearing yellow cap toe oxfords. (Effort lang with the collage! The things I do to prove a point.)
SNSD Sooyoung, Yoona, Sunny, KARA Gyuri, 4minute Jihyun, KARA Jiyoung, After School UEE, Kahi, Wonder Girls Yoobin, Jewelry Yewon, S.E.S. Eugene, have all worn LeBunnies too!
Because I’m a silent fan of K-pop (though you might have already seen occasional gushing on my Twitter), I also decided to get a pair of oxfords for myself and managed to convince Crissey to try oxfords for the first time. Here goes Trissey again with their matchy matchy couple items!
The flagship store opened in Shangri-la East Wing, which is so ideal for me because it’s my favorite mall/hangout. The second branch will open in Glorietta 5 soon so watch out for that if Shang is too further north.
Pretty interiors! Reminds me of the quirky cafes I was able to briefly visit in Korea years ago!
Wish they’d open a cafe inside the store!
Pink, ribbons and bunnies. You can’t get any girlier than this.
Trissey’s initial pick! Until reality hit us and made us realize that we might be too old for this, lol.
My favorite oxfords, OMG. But my size was already sold-out. UGH. Those neon soles are perfect.
Crissey’s dream shoes! Looks similar from the one I wore last year, but these ones are pastel for spring/summer.
Obligatory mirror shot of Trissey! My top coincidentally matched the interiors!
Oxford love. I was drawn to the one in the middle at first (blue being my favorite color), but opted for a bolder, more unique design in the end!
Got this mug along with my purchase! <3
They also have dainty sneakers (there is such a thing, lol)
Just because Crissey is cute and is a self-proclaimed bunny.
Met the pretty owner Zerline who was wearing statement pink + gray oxfords. Crissey and I got the brown + white version of this exact design, and we already plan to bring our Le Bunnies with us when we go to Hong Kong later this month!
Given enough time to reflect, I can probably enumerate all my life instances when I felt like I was doing something right. One of them is being directly contacted by a brand’s international PR team. This time, I got a message from PUMA, straight from Boston, wanting to send me their MY-66 sneaker wedges designed in a collaboration with Mihara Yasuhiro. I was asked to choose from black/pink, and white/gray. And of course I chose the one that I feel like will match the rest of my wardrobe. My week is made!
Mihara Yasuhiro, if the name doesn’t ring a bell, is a well-known Japanese designer known for his shoe work. While he also has his own clothing label in Tokyo, his collaboration with PUMA Black Label put him in a whole other level. If you’re curious about his other designs, try to search for images on Google and I’m sure all you sneaker freaks will want to own one of his designs too! (Count on me, of all people, to be biased about all things Japanese, lol.)
Currently, I have about 4 pairs of sneaker wedges, thanks to that fashion-meets-function element that they have. The trend doesn’t seem to be going away soon, but regardless of what’s in or not, this pair would have to be my favorite! Not only is it my first non-black pair, but I am so in love with the design! Looks like a work of art. The 3.5 inch heels add so much more height too, compared to most sneaker wedges. And not to mention, this design is quite slim and sexy, and is definitely perfect for those who aren’t huge fans of too-chunky footwear. In love!
Thinking if I should bring this to my trip to Kyoto and Osaka in a few days since I’ll be doing a lot of walking. Of course, me being me, I’d want to do it in style!
