RANDA

Back from Tokyo! I had the busiest time but I’m not complaining. I originally planned this trip as some sort of vacation, but so many work opportunities came up and I just suddenly found myself having no free time at all!

One of my agendas while I was in Tokyo was to take up RANDA’s offer to visit any of their stores. I always pass by the one in Shinjuku every time I’m in Tokyo, so I chose this particular store as I was most familiar with it.

I blogged about them last summer, and I remember mentioning how much I swear by Japanese shoe brands. You can never doubt the quality of their shoes because Japanese girls walk around A LOT, and I don’t think they can survive walking (and sometimes, running) around the whole day in poorly-made shoes.

Maho-san from RANDA gave me two pairs as presents (YAY) but I bought two additional pairs because I couldn’t resist all the pretty shoes. I also never owned a pair of white/off-white boots so I finally got one that I can comfortably walk around in.

I also took the opportunity to take photos of their latest S/S14 collection. So many girly designs that you can easily pair with your floral skirts and light denim bottoms.

Perfect beach shoes!

Tropical print is still popular for most S/S collections in Japan. These shoes are sure to be a hit!

Bejeweled flats for lazy days! No need to excessorize anymore.

The most popular silhouette for flats right now. RANDA offers them in unique designs that you can’t find anywhere else.

RANDA collaborated with famous blogger Zina from Fashionvibe to create these shoes. So chic! I can already imagine them paired with tattered boyfriend jeans (another popular S/S trend).

Not your ordinary booties.

Summer sandals! RANDA always has the most interesting wedge designs. Makes your feet look like a million bucks.

A whole wall of RANDA shoes. Can I live here?

One of my favorites from their latest collection. Kawaii yet classy!

Got the black version of these flats for everyday use. I love the subtle bejeweled heels.

RANDA x Hello Kitty collaboration! So many girls in the store fit the beige Hello Kitty loafers.

Wore my RANDA boots immediately! They are insanely comfy, and the heels are just the right height for walking. I traveled around Shinjuku and Shimokitazawa that day and my feet didn’t hurt at all.

Thanks to the RANDA Shinjuku shop staff for the hospitality! I wish my Nihongo were better but I tried my best, lol.

She is wearing a pair from the latest S/S collection. Two-tone also seems like a huge trend this season.

A better view of my outfit (thanks to Asian Impressions for taking this picture). Can’t wait to show you my new shoes in the next couple of weeks!
