Hello my dear readers! How is everyone? My week started in a very bad way, and I’m predicting it will continue the same way. I always like to share some of my personal things with you, so let me explain…At Monday morning, my mom called me to go get her, because she fell and hurt herself. Turns out, it was worse than I initially thought, and I had to take her to the hospital for x-rays. The verdict? A broken shoulder bone (I think she broke the head part), which needs to be operated, but the doctors decided not to let her go through this procedure…Instead they’re gonna wait for a week until they examine her again, to determine if they’re going to do the surgery. During this week, she’s going to be in terrible pain, with nothing more than pain killers, which leaves her unable to do anything at all! During this week, I’ll have to take care of both my mom, and my grandma (who had a surgery on her leg about a year ago, if you remember), while doing all house works and errands myself. It’s gonna be a hectic week, but here’s hoping everything turns out ok, in the end.
So sorry to bother you with my bad news, but really needed to share it with someone, and this blog is partly my diary. In other news, returning to the fashion part of this blog, last Thursday I received the package I was waiting for. In it, there were 3 (!) boxes of shoes, 2 for me and 1 for T.
As I told you on my previous wishlist, there were some pairs that I didn’t include, for fear of losing my size in them. hehe So here they are, ordered and received.
They are both from the brand Timeless, which has some very cute and quite affordable pairs.
My first choice was a pair of blue pumps with black toe caps (one of the latest huge trends) and heels, which I really loved. By the time they arrived, this particular design was sold out in every size on spartoo.gr, which proves that I wasn’t irrational in my decision to keep them for myself, until I actually ordered them. hehe sorry ladies!
My second choice was a pair of brown booties with black sides. They have a 14cm heel with a 4cm platform.
It was the first time I ordered something form this brand, but I wanted to buy a pair because of their cute designs, and very affordable prices. My experience so far is that they’re not the best quality shoes I’ve seen of course (as you would expect from 2 pairs of shoes under 50€ – 35€ for the pumps and 53€ for the booties), but they are good enough to wear a few times. The stitching and the details are not the best, they’re made in China (which is a huge minus for me), but I’m sure they’ll serve their purpose. Between the 2, I definitely choose the pumps. I’m not sure about the booties on me yet. These 2 pairs bring my collection to a total of 62 pairs! Because having to wear 60 pairs at least once wasn’t challenging enough. hehe
Lastly, the 3rd box included a beautiful (in my personal opinion) pair of Asics sneakers for T. which he accepted with joy, as I surprised him with them. I love giving small presents to my loved ones, and after my mom’s gift, it was T’s turn. What can I say? In my fantasy world, giving someone shoes is the best way to say I LOVE YOU! Or you know, the best way to motivate them to do the same for you, when time comes. hehe
I hope you’re having a great week… Please stay tuned for my next posts about Vancouver Fashion week!
