The place: shoe section, The SM Store, SM City Cabanatuan
The occasion: my birthday (which is why most of my purchases are for me. 🙂 )
The sulit challenge: To spend no more than PHP 2,000 and finish shopping in one hour!
Check out my sulit finds! 🙂
Zuri’s sulit find:
My 5-year-old daughter, Zuri, chose these gladiator sandals from Sugar Kids (Regular price: PHP 449.75) for herself. This pair is the most expensive pair out of all the shoes we bought, but I like to encourage Zuri to make her own choices, so…there.
These gladiator sandals are really cute and fit perfectly on Zuri’s feet. We love the color, too. Zuri can also easily put on and take off this pair all by herself. I think, over all, this is a good buy. 🙂
Daddy Rupert’s sulit find:
Well, this really isn’t Rupert’s find because Zuri and I were the ones who found it. Rupert was somewhere else in the mall, doing something else while I was shoe shopping with Zuri and my siblings. I like it that way so Rupert wouldn’t bother me. He isn’t really into the whole shopping thing and always tells me to hurry up when he’s around while I shop, which kind of ruins the experience for me. For everyone’s happiness, it is best to let Rupert do his thing (usually Pokemon Go) while Zuri and I do our thing (usually clothes, shoes, toy shopping). But, I digress.
Going back to what I was saying, we found this comfy pair of bedroom slippers for Daddy Rupert. He loves wearing hotel slippers because they’re so soft and comfy. Now, he has his own. We got this pair for PHP 109.75.
Mommy Kay’s sulit finds:
Once we were done with Zuri’s and Daddy Rupert’s sulit finds, we went to the women’s shoes section. I found these flat shoes from Solemate. They were on sale at PHP 499 for 2 pairs! How sulit is that !? These flats from Solemate are also available in other colors like baby pink, peach, royal blue, maroon, black. 🙂
I used to own more high heels than flats but ever since I became a mommy, flat shoes became my ultimate best friend. Kung pwede nga lang mag flats kahit sa mga formal occasions! Now, I can never have too many flats. They’re just so useful to me. These flats in particular are for bringing and fetching Zuri to and from school.
My sister paid for these 2 pairs as a birthday gift to me. Thanks, Sister! 🙂
Then, I found two other pairs of flats (again!) from Parisian. I’ve known about Parisian ever since my college days in UP Diliman. I used to buy my Parisian pairs from SM Dept. Store, SM North Edsa. Parisian has stylish, reasonably priced shoes – pairs that students can afford. I still remember the first pair of silver flats that I bought when I was in college. I think that was also my first Parisian pair.
These silver and army green Parisian flats are way simpler than the quirky ones I used to have. But, I think, this simple, classic design is more suitable for my age and taste now. 🙂
After the flats, I also got myself a cute and comfy pair of bedroom slippers for PHP 99.75. Yey! I’m all about comfort now. 🙂
All in all, we got seven pairs of shoes/slippers in one hour! All for a total of PHP 1,960! Another sulit shopping challenge completed! 🙂
Thanks for reading! 🙂
