SM Aura, BGC
I’m a self confessed shopaholic. When the movie Confessions of A Shopaholic first came out, I saw myself so much in Rebecca Bloomwood that I was both laughing and cringing at each scene that reminded me so much of that side of me. Everyone who’s close to me knows how much excuses I’ve given to myself just to buy a new purchase and I’ve always been the type of girl to “reward” myself by buying something at the mall – even something as small as a pair of shoes or a top from my favourite store! :P Thankfully, I haven’t reached a point where I’ve made the saleslady tried 10 credit cards (I don’t own one for a reason lol) or have brought my piggy bank to pay for something hahaha! :) One of the shops I love going to when I’m in the mood to shop is the SM Aura branch of Melissa. I first came across the brand about 3 years ago when I was sent a pair to Instagram. To be honest, I wasn’t first sold on the idea of wearing jelly shoes as I’ve only seen it on #MomsofManila till I tried them on. Wow, it’s one of the most comfortable pairs I’ve tried ever! Not only is it for everyday use but the brand constantly keeps itself trendy by collaborating with the hottest and most iconic designers. Fast forward to today, I have a total of 14 pairs from flats, sandals, slippers and even wedges :)
What I love about the store is that it’s a no fuss one, no prints, no distracting colors… it’s literally made to make you look at all the pairs of shoes inside it. The store was made to make the shoes the centre of attention! Plus I love that they’re arranged by designer or by kind which makes it easier to shop :) I visited last week to prepare for my trips around the Philippines and I got myself 2 pairs from their new collection!
Their sandals are my favourite! They’re perfect for lazy days paired with jeans, a summery top, a straw hat or even a sunday dress :) If we do bump into each other in the mall, you’ll probably see me wearing them!
I love that Melissa started to become more open to louder colors and livelier details like bows, flowers, jewels, straps and even swarovski so it’s appropriate for a lot of the occasions we go to :) May it be for a trip to the mall, a party or the beach!
Heard they have a new collection coming up so you’ll probably see me trying on pairs there soon :P See you?
