if anyone wants to by the diamonte by the meter, i have some for sale. It sells for $18/meter @ Arab street - I bought a whole roll from there. LOL. I do lots of crafts. If people are interested, I can sell to you all at $10 per metre. email [email protected] for pics!
May i know from where and how much did it cost for your pair of silver shoes? I am looking for sth similar as I broke my ankles some months back, and therapist advised I should not wear heels for my wedding. Sigh, so i have to look for flatties (and I meant really flats).. but not sure where to get them at all..
Thanks! I shall try to go around Bata, Tangs, Heatwave like the other ladies have suggested too, to look for my shoes. Else will have to tailormake... Not sure if there is enough time - my ps is on 23 April.
I went to essex walk at palais renaissance yesterday to custom made a pair of shoes. I saw a pair of OTR white coloured covered shoes with feathers which is very nice, I love it very much but didnt get that pair as I think its too low for me. Mayb it will be suitable for you.
Their shoes are available at Takashimaya too. Their website is www.essex.com
The shoes cost me $600. Very Expensive, but i think its worth it since its once in a lifetime thing. I do custom made cos I want the shoes to be more than 4 inches, and OTRs are mostly up to 4 inches only.
Essex Walk's OTRs are about $300++. If you like diamante shoes, Aldo at Raffles City Shopping Centre is also a very good choice. Aldo have a lot of nice diamante shoes (prices from $190++).
The shoe designer jocelyn which I am going to do my 2nd pair of shoes charge $180 onwards.
Thanks for sharing the pic! Your shoes is very nice and elegant!
I just went down to City Plaza yesterday and there sure is lots of nice and elegant diamante shoes!
Most shoe shops other than City Plaza usually sell shoes up to 4inches only but at City Plaza, they sell shoes that r up to 6 inches!
I actually wanted to buy 5 inches shoes but FH dont like, he say waste money cos if the shoes are too high, I wouldnt be able to wear it after the wedding on normal occasion, thats y no choice have to finally settle on a pair of 4inches shoes which my FH fell in love with.. (Hmm, I thought its me who should be choosing the shoes, in the end he choose for me ;p) He chose a pair with darker silver but I actually prefer light silver like your shoes. Since he is the one paying, I cannot argue with him
Maybe will go back another day without my FH and secretly buy the 5inches myself, hee...
Pictures to share (pardon me for lousy photo skills, hee):
This pair is bought at City Plaza (Originally $189, bargain till $100.)
As Janken told me in the previous post, there are several shoe shops that sell diamante shoes. Those that specialise in diamante should be about 5 shops located on the 1st and 2nd level.
Take your time to shop around, dont settle on the 1st shop that you go to or else you might end up regreting becos of cheaper price or nicer design elsewhere.
Remember to bargain! My shoes actual price was $189, the shop lady gave us a discount and quote us $120 initially. We managed to bargain down to $100! Thats a $89 diff! You can use that amount to buy another pair!
Just to share bargaining tips (my FH is very gd at bargaining as he does sales and his skin also very thick, lol ;p):
1. Always go in a pair, your FH can act as the bad guy
2. Ask for the price of the shoes you like. Pretend to make conversation between yourselves. For example, the shoes is $190, your FH can ask you something like 'how much did you pay for that shoes u bought at tampines?' Then you answer 'I remember it's less than $100'.
3. Always pretend that the shoes is over budget (even if its not). Pretend there's not much choice, ask her when they will have new stock, tell them you will come back for a 2nd pair.
The shop that I went to is Midas Shoes #02-96. The lady there is very nice, other shop dont seem as friendly though.
Fiona, we have the same prob. I am also very short thats y hope to buy higher heels. Lucky my FH also not tall otherwise even if I wear 6 inches also cannot match his height, haha ;p
If you are buying very high shoes like 5 or 6inches, please do remember to practise walking and also walk very gently on your AD, beware of traps like those carpets where you can trip very easily over their loose threads. You must be on high alert cos you wont want to spoilt your wedding by tripping and kissing the floor ;p
My FH is about 10cm taller than me but as he is also not tall, he will be wearing shoes that have inner platform that will add 7cm more, so I hope to find higher shoes to be almost of the same height as him.
Actually I am still envy of u as I would prefer flat shoes rather than heels, but becos of my height, I have to look for those dangerously high shoes, hee ;P
When is your AD? Anyway, congrats on your wedding! And thanks for helping me find the right wedding shoes
Wow, $149 is really a good bargain for Aldo Shoes and some more its 4 1/2 inches! I remember last time when I went there, most of the shoes that I like are in the $200plus to $300 range, thats y I didnt buy any in the end
<font color="119911">hi fiona, I was also on the verge of buying that pair of shoe!
I really liked yours and another one that's strappy (no diamante) but shiny. Couldn't decide which one. I also need 4" heels so thought this would be a good choice. Ok, better rush down to Aldo and buy!</font>
