Just received today a package full of fabulous accessories from another Taobao vendor which I bought from last week. Have been really trying to find new accessories for summer and thankfully I landed in their homepage. So without hesitations, I bagged most of the goodies. Items are beautiful, exactly described, of good quality and mind you all were safely packed.
Best part, it’s cheap! Can you imagine pair of hooks cost less than 4RMB and bracelets at around 5-10RMB, way way cheaper if you’d compare buying in the mall. Even if you include the shipping fee. I have seen similar designs at H&M which cost at 50 RMB and above. Thats a big difference!
To be honest, this had been a long awaited post because I already purchased the item a month ago. I just cant get over the fact that I had a pretty good deal acquiring it – yes it was one of the shoes marked as sale that day. Hold on for a sec! Before anything else I just want to remind you that I’m not talking about Prada, Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo or Louboutin’s here. I am referring to a humble all authentic Filipino shoe brand – Leaveland.
So who and what is Leaveland anyway? If you’ll ask me, they are one of the few shoe stores who are always on sale – yes! seems everyday is a bargain treat for shopaholics which could luckily hit 50-70% discounts per piece. Crazy right? But its a good calling for thrift shoppers like me. So to give you an idea on the shoes they sell, I want to share what I bought last October, below are some of the pictures.
One thing that I hate though after hours of religiously walking, standing and climbing stairways in it, I got several blisters on my right toes which caused me not to wear any closed shoes for next 2 days. Painful? Hell yes! But what the heck, its not that this is the first time ever happened to me. Actually having toe blister is becoming a trend on my part especially if a shoe is new.
So as for the peso power rating, original price was more than a thousand pesos. But since it was on the sale rack I only paid half – 540.00 php to be exact. My final verdict? obviously cheap for a classy, stylish and sexy footwear.
