My new 5 inches heels.....

After all these crazy shopping, I'm starting to "unpack" the new shoes I've bought these 2 months. (There are still 2 shipments coming from the Nordstrom and NM...)

This is the 1st pair of Marni that I own, and is also the highest heels I've got. However, to my surprise, they are amazingly comfortable!!

I love the details of the platform (tweed + wood) and also love how the chunky heels are being made. They are so retro!

So, here's my ensemble which I wore during the weekend, featuring my new Marni platform sandals, and also a new addition to my Chanel family which I bought in March09 (after I took my Chanel family portrait) - Chanel 09P classic jumbo size flap in Fuchsia "washed" Caviar with silver hw.

- Bottom Layer ==> Magenta cotton camisole (Kookai)
- Middle Layer ==> White tank top (Zara)
- Top Layer ==> Blue jean "baby doll" cropped blazer ("Lowry's Farm" - a
Japanese Brand)

- Multicolor Floral Print "sarouel"/harem pants (Zara)

- 09P Fushcia washed caviar jumbo with silver hw (Chanel)

- Brown leather wooden chunky 5-inch heels platform sandals (Marni)

- Hat: Beige "Fedora" straw hat with chocolate brown satin ribbon (a Japanese brand)
- Earrings: 09P "Spring Bloom" Blue/pink flower earrings with dangling CC
in enamel and strass (Chanel)
- Necklace: Sequined and beaded blue/white/black/yellow/matte gold multicolor fabric "ethnic" long necklace (Kookai)
- Sunglasses: 5120 Tortoise sunglasses with gradient brown lens (Chanel)

Without the Fedora hat....

My blue jean blazer is made of very soft cotton fabric with pleated details. I tried to match my ensemble with a very washed-out light blue real denim jacket, but I think this one's fabric and length match the outfit better.

Details of my jeweleries....(picked this since the blue and pink colors of these Chanel earrings match the color tone of my outfit and also the floral print of my pants....)

I chose this ethnic-looking long fabric necklace by Kookai because it fits the "mood" and colors of the ensemble. Kookai sometimes have some nice costume jeweleries and they are at really affordable prices. Nice to have for mix-and-match.

I love the floral and sequins details of this necklace and the different beads and sequins used on the fabric (white cotton rope). It's handmade and I think it's well made for the price of Euro50. This necklace length is very very long, and you can adjust it to 2/3/4 strands. Very versatile.

  1. HI Mia,

    your new Marni platforms are great choice of purchase. they go with so many outfits.

    the color of fuchsia09 is more of the mix of berry and fuchsia. it looks delicious.

    you have quite a few trends in this outfit. straw fedora hat - spotted on many clebs this summer; harem pants, check; platforms, check; layered tanks, check...

    can't wait to see your other shoes.

  2. Hi, Mia. Your blue-jean jacket is very appealing because of the pleats and the use of soft/drapey cotton; and your Chanel jumbo flap is gorgeous, as usual, for its timelessness and color.

  3. Hi Julia!! Thanks! I am loving Marni now and will pay attention to their shoes and costume jeweleries from now on (they have amazing RTW pieces too!). I didn't expect the shoes to be that comfortable when it's like 5 inches tall!

    Hahaha...a few trends on my outfit....does it make me a fashion victim? Hope not...hehehehehe. Rachel said that I should pair my outfit with those English Oxford flat shoes....but I just can't pull of these Oxford flats even though I think they will compliment the outfit even more. I tried on a pair of burgundy patent oxford shoes at Church's, they are very nice when they are on display, but both DH and I agreed that these oxford shoes are really not for me. Hehe..too bad!

    Thanks for stopping by again!


  4. Hi! Is it you True*F?? Kamusta na? Welcome to my blog! So boring here talking to myself...hehehehe! Parang loka loka. :P

    Thanks so much for your sweet compliments! I'll try to update my blog as much as possible so it won't disappoint any readers who stop by. Hehehehe...trying my best here.


  5. Those Marni heels are hot! I've been checking out tons of Marni shoes ever since I saw them on Rachel a while back but just haven't taken the plunge b/c it's soooo high! How's the walking for you so far? I think that's probably one of the main reasons why I haven't ventured into Louboutins too b/c of the height (even if they are beyond gorgeous).

    You are always so cute and I really like the girly colors of your Chanel earrings. I saw a short necklace from the same line this weekend but decided not to get it. The earrings are more practical, I think.

  6. Hi Betsy! Thanks so much for your sweet compliments. Marni shoes are comfortable. I was able to convince my mom to buy a pair too! I have another pair of Marni shoes which I bought after this one. Platform shoes as well. Both are comfortable when walking because of the platform. I think when wearing really high heeled shoes, having the platform is really important so you won't feel the height and also will be very comfortable to walk in. Louboutins as well. But then, for Louboutins, I think it depends on the style. Some are hard to walk in, some are great. Try Louboutin Simple or Ron Ron pumps 85mm or 100mm. They are the classic CL pumps which are comfy to walk in even without the platform.

    Oh I've seen the short necklace too for this Chanel Spring Bloom earrings. I also saw the ring. But like you, I think the earrings are more practical. :D

    Thanks again for stopping by! Hope you get your first pair of Marni / Louboutin soon!
