I went to an outlet mall yesterday with my sister. I needed a dress and shoes for graduation (and hopefully wearable for the rest of my life). I think the best part about this mall is that they have department store outlets. I found my dress at the Bloomingdales outlet, and everything there was already discounted plus buy one item, get another half off. So for my second item, I got this Marc by Marc Jacobs striped t-shirt dress. Its super comfortable, I think its adorable (Trang and David don’t like it though ;x), and was really reasonably priced after the discount.
Rawr~ Imma eat chuuu!
Originally for shoes, I had been lusting over these “Gucci Ankle Strap Peep Toe Pump” for over a month. But as lovely and classic the style was, I couldn’t bring myself to spend $600 on one pair of shoes and I couldn’t even try it on since it was only sold online. Though I’ll admit I still regret not getting it and plummeting into severe credit card debt since I could see myself wearing them for the rest of my life (kidding~). Anyway~ I knew I wanted something open-toed, suede, and with ankle straps. So when I saw these Jimmy Choo pumps at Nordstrom Rack fitting the description perfectly, I was extremely happy! Not to mention, the sale price was much cheaper than the Gucci pair and was 1/4th of the original price.
The shoes are a little too big for me (I’m a 37, not a 38) but nothing that shoe padding can’t fix! They’re a little scuffed in some places and looks a tiny bit worn out, but the sole shoes no signs of wear. Maybe it was a last pair at some Nordstrom and they sent it to the outlet store? Either way, I don’t mind since the imperfections aren’t extremely noticeable unless you’re staring at it. But yay! My first pair of designer shoes! They’re really comfortable but I’m hoping that I won’t break my ankle walking across the stage since I don’t normally wear high heels, ever.
