Being in the corporate world, especially in the banking industry, doesn’t allow much room for exploring new fashion get-ups. As much as possible, people have top dress conservatively. Most people dress themselves up with neutral colors.
For my look today, I am wearing a one piece dress from Forever 21. The top is a loose pinkish blouse that is connected to a figure fitting a line black skirt. I accentuated this look by using this multi-layered necklace from Forever 21 and this black bangle from Ensembles. The black bangle has sketches of Filipiniana clothing designed by Ramon Valera.
For my earrings, I wore a pair of Opal (my birthstone) studs, which I bought in Turkey. My shoes are from Payless. The bag was a gift from my aunt in the US. It was a paisley designed bag from Kathy Van Zeeland.
Tip for this week is that if everything’s plain and simple, you can use accessories and a bag to give your look that interesting look.
I’m more of a bag lover than a shoe lover. It’s probably because I have a time looking for shoes that fit perfectly since I have a bunion. Recently, however, there have been really good looking shoes that are hard to resist. After my recent stiletto purchase from Payless, I have been addicted to scouting (yes, just scouting) for shoes. I have been successful in spotting really nice shoes, and one of the site I frequent is MunizShoes.com.
What I love about Muniz Shoes is that it is 100% Filipino — Carmina Villarroel, a Filipino actress, designed these shoes and most of the materials that she uses is locally sourced plus these are created by Filipino craftsmen.
These are the models that I am eyeing:
If you want to order, they have a very simple ordering process in place.
To order, just visit MunizShoes.com then…
1. Navigate to the shoe you want. Select your size, style (if available) and quantity and click Add to Cart.
2. When you are done shopping, click on the Checkout button (found on the lower left-hand side of the page).
3. After reviewing that the items you ordered are correctly listed, fill-up the form below your shopping cart and follow the instructions on the rest of the page.
4. Click Proceed to Confirmation.
5. You will receive an email notification that your order was received.
6. Muniz Shoes will contact you with the details of your order.
I haven’t ordered yet since I do not know what size I am. With my bunion, it’s so hard to say if I am an 8 or 8.5. My feet are wierd… buuuhuu! I hope that they get to have a brick and mortar store so that I can try out these shoes, and choose what fits well. I heard that they send stocks to Ensembles Trinoma, but I haven’t gone to there yet. I’ll probably check it out next week.
For those who are shoe addicts, Muniz Shoes is a good brand to get if you want to support the Filipino shoe industry! Do let us know if these shoes are comfortable. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
