Fighting off the gloomy weather by posting a bright, summer outfit that I wore a few weeks back to a weekend road trip with my closest friends. Couldn’t pass up the chance to shoot an outdoor outfit post because I rarely go out of the city! You may have also noticed how I have managed to successfully settle within the confines of my little studio and plain white wall nowadays. It’s too convenient. /cry
Anyhow, I just had to wear my new wedges out because I couldn’t find anything more perfect to match with my whole outfit. Who says summer sandals can only be flat? I got these RANDA babies from my recent trip to Tokyo, and I couldn’t be happier with this purchase. I’ve always adored RANDA shoes, and Japanese shoe brands in general because they are really some of the most comfortable (if not the most comfortable) shoes in the world. If you go around Japan, you’ll be amazed at how some girls can survive to walk for hours in 4+ inch high heels and not die at the end of the day. A lot of it has to do with the quality of shoes that they wear!
Another spring/summer outfit wearing the same wedges!
Fortunately for us who can’t go to Japan all the time (though thankfully we can now have multiply-entry visa, lol thank you PM Shinzo Abe) just to buy quality kawaii shoes, RANDA has recently opened its global webstore that can ship to over 120 countries. YES, the Philippines is included. You just need to have PayPal.
Hopefully more Japanese brands can go global in the next few months/years!
Their S/S 2013 collection called CHIC & PURITY is every spring lover’s dream! I couldn’t resist getting a pair of Metallic-line Ankle strap Wedge Sandals in Beige for myself when I visited their Shinjuku store. It was only a few steps away from JR Shinjuku Station!
I spent about 30 minutes deliberating on which pair I should get. Everything was so pretty, but as a normal traveler I couldn’t buy too many shoes or my luggage could go overweight (and back then, I already bought too much EMODA for the touchMe show). T_T
I settled for classic nude wedges with gold accents in the end. In all honesty, my feet can withstand hours of walking around in these high heels. What is this sorcery?!
Two-tone open-toe shoes for their main poster. I love how RANDA offers cute and trendy but classy designs that can cater to different ages and styles. The model on the left has a more mature, chic style while the model on the right has a more sweet, innocent style.
HOHOHO I’m on a roll! I come bearing more good news! RANDA is officially on sale starting today! It’s CRAZY – I found a pair of $60 flats that went down to $20.
Here are my faves from the global webstore. Enjoy shopping!
