Those who saw my facebook status earlier knew that I've got a big, fat bonus from hubby. I initially wanted to buy more clothes, especially since I am now fatter and can't fit into many of my clothes (clothes which I own since secondary school!).
And please don't blame it on Shern now that his mummy is fatter. It is not the post-pregnancy fault. (I was back at my pre-pregnancy weight after a few mths giving birth). His mummy is getting fatter because she is eating non-stop and no thanks to my baking obsession as well. Sigh.
Anyway, back to the topic.
I got myself a Birkenstock, thanks to a friend. Yes, the shoe that I've been eying since I went to Australia in 2003. I was a poor student then, so I could only watch some of my friends buying them (at that time, Birkenstock was not available in M'sia).
Based on fourfeetnine, there are 2 types of women in this world: the shoes woman or the bags woman. I think I am both. The shoes woman AND the bags woman!
So now not only I own 2 Radley bags, I now also own a pair of Birkenstock Gizeh in white.
I drool just by looking at them.
Been wearing them for sometime now. Birkenstock has been hailed as 'The Perfect Shoe' by many.
And how do I feel wearing this? It is so good that I think in future, no more Crocs for me, only Birkenstocks! :P
Although initially you feel that they are a little stiff when you tried it on, it got more and more flexible the longer you wear it.
I think I am in love with it!
I like its contour footbed and its deep heel cup with natural padding. And I don't usually wear thong-style slippers, but surprisingly, this Gizeh does not hurt my toe. My toe wraps at it naturally and does not hurt me at all. I'm really surprised!
If I don't wear my heels out, you are sure to spot me wearing my Birkenstock.
I wear it casually everywhere. I'm lovin' it!
