When I went to Kuala Lumpur to stay with relatives, I only brought a small suitcase and did not pack anything extravagant. When I got there I found out that it was one of my cousin-in-law’s birthdays and there was a grand dinner prepared for him. Apparently everyone is supposed to dress up and girls have to wear heels. I only brought my flat sandals to walkabout in. So a great purchasing experience was thus created. Most people go shopping because they want to purchase a particular item, not I. I rarely go shopping specially for one specific thing. I only go ‘accidental’ shopping. I find that when people have their mind set on something in particular, it is more difficult to find it and they often miss out on the good stuff.
This is one time I am going shopping for something specific. I set off to buy a pair of heels that would match my dress. My favourite shopping paradise in KL was the Pavilion Shopping Centre so we set out on the mission. I spent a significant amount of time trying on some delicious Giuseppe Zanotti heels, they were on sale! However, I could not find anything that matched my dress or that I could walk in. Giuseppe Zanotti heels are so gorgeous, but all had 6 inch heels!
I went next door to Chloe, and was praising God when I found out that they were having a great sale also. It only took a moment, I picked out my shoes- the black (charcoal, actually) Paddington pumps. They are calfskin, leather lining and sole. These Italian beauties were so comfortable I could run in them. I adore the little padlocks on them. Chloe only carries 1 pair in each size. They still had 38.5 left, so it was meant to be.
I scored a catalogue and drooled over every page.
Chloe had these pumps in lavender as well.
The shop assistant gave me a huge Chloe paper bag, I was walking around advertising for them.
Wearing a vintage romper suit, Country Road gold leather gladiators and a giant Chloe bag.
Having 5 meals a day with relatives who were all food enthusiasts certainly added extra weight on me. I am in a silk Hoff by Hoff dress (purchased from Switzerland, I brought it along this trip so I could finally wear it! So thank God for the opportunity, and to think I almost did not bring it!), Topshop gold watch necklace and the new shoes from Chloe!
