I am however tempted. To buy a pair of re[etto ballet flats. Since visiting the local repetto shop at Pavillion last week, my evenings have been spent googling forums and blogs on repettos. Most love them. Quite a number agree its more expensive than what they are used to.And a few gripes about the fragile sole and cheap feel to the shoe. I even watched a youtube video on the deconstruction of the repetto shoe by an Australian. Obsessed! That's what I am.
But shoe are important. Repetto Pavillion will be having their grand opening on Thursday the 12th of March 2014. They have finger-food and actual ballet dancing for entertainment. How do I know this? The sweet lady in the shop Rebecca informed and invited me to visit then to get 20% off all new shoes. ( Otherwise they're FULL price any other day)
I'm eyeing an older pair with 30% off in purple which I think will go with most things if I'm not too fussy. Decisions decisions.

Old friends are friend who are like family. They forgive you most things. And the shared history of growing up is something precious.
I had a lovely Saturday evening surrounded by a great selection of people of various ages. We had loads of fun taking pictures and half of them are posted on FB for most people to admire and comment.
Reason for heading o BV was to get a present for an 8 year old and a card for AJ who's birthday I clean forgot would you believe it? I feel like a heel. And a bad friend.
AJ is an even tempered person who hasn't quite learnt how to how grudges. So we're still the best of friends. And I got her a nice simple card and some presents with a little funny something thrown in.
Hope she likes it. I haven't had a chance to pass her her present. Mondays are usually chaotic for most. And today is no exception.

Here is a soap with a funny name. Didn't buy this! It smelt okay but my favourite is Karma which smells divine when you put it in between your clothes in the cupboard.
Today is the first day I've watched local TV for the whole 8 months. Had a bit of trouble finding the TV controller. Through facebook, I got the first inkling that something big was happening. There were posts which were general: MAS plane missing. As the story evolved, it began to gather momentum through various media and now, we are all a little bit shaken by the news. We cannot begin to imagine what the relatives of the passengers are going through right now. I am hoping for a miracle. And praying for God's will to be done.

This is what happens after being in the Repetto shop an hour before this. Relative to Repetto these shoes were a steal. But on its own...they're still rather more expensive that what I would usually fork out:)
French sole is located on the 3rd floor the same side as Marks and Spencers. I had to ask the information desk because I was too eager to get there. Did not want to walk about looking. Turns out, I wouldn't have found it myself. It's located in one of the pushed-out spots in KLCC ( their version of expanding the place) and you can't see it from the escalator. A tiny sign handing from the ceiling is the only pointer to this shoe haven.
They've been here for more than a year and I don't know about this? Serves me right for not buying any local magazines to read.
The shop is everything you'd want a shoe shop to be. Shoes to the left and right displayed in groups depending on their designs and a large seating area in the middle. The salesperson recognized my own frenchsole shoe I was wearing.( except it's called London sole and she explained the difference to me...and I've forgotten it now so I can't blog about it)
I decided to try and more sloppy version of ballerina flats. In a rather deep dirty orange color. I like some toe cleavage and this design suits my taste. A little bit of discount if you use both HSBC or CIMB card. ( Yay the only two cards I have!) And with that final clincher, I caved in and bought my second french/london sole shoes in the week. Too much!
