Witchery Shoes Haul + NOTW "It doesn't matter with Grey Matter"


Witchery has been having sale for the past few weeks, and I've never really ventured much into their shoes section because I've always thought they are either overpriced or just not worth the price. However, however, with the sale... and further reduction when you have the Witchery card... I think I can justify its price in the end. I shall let the photos do the talking...

(Note: David Jones is one of the 2 biggest department stores over here in Australia, the other one being Myer.)

First up we have a pair of nude ballet flats that I've been eyeing for some time but could not justify its price - then I came across a pair at
David Jones Chermside, last pair of my size (I'm a size 40 in Witchery shoes, by the way - a knowledge I just very recently figured out). So I just had to have it. I have nothing like this. Honest! I bought this over several weeks ago. RRP AUD$169.95 - wtf!? Hahaha... I got the pair for about AUD$40+ish, I forgot now hahaha... This particular style is called Victoria Embellished Ballet in color Cosmetic - how fitting for someone like me... not that I do ballet... I never took any dance, sadly...

Then weeks passed...

I spotted a pair of heels I just adored at
David Jones in Queens Plaza, Brisbane City. I thought... "eek, nah, I'll give it a pass... Don't think I want to spend that much..." and kept going.

Little did I know! Witchery then sent me an email saying that for those with the Witchery card can get a further 20% discount on the already reduced items! Score!! So I snatched the last pair of this pair of heels in size 40... Gosh I have big feet... I'm only about 5'5"ish... y'know... not that people would notice or stare at my feet realizing that unless I mention it... but still, it's like having a constant reminder in the back of your mind that you have big feet... Does it bother me? It used to - not anymore... Fact is though, it doesn't make things easy when you try to shop for shoes in Asia... but hey, they're my feet and I'm thankful for them. Haha... So if I don't find one in my size, then it's just not meant to be. That's how I see it. Teehee...


*bops and shakes head from side to side with a smile as big as the distance from one ear to another* 'cause you know why? That pair (above pictures) would normally cost AUD$189.95 (RRP) - and I got them for approximately around AUD$70. Wondering what's the name of the style? "Candy" - Color? "Nude".

The last pair I purchased was sort of ... an essential... in a way. Since school started I have to have enclosed shoes to do lab works straining my eyes peering through those microscopic lenses... and my current shoes have had its good life, totally worn out. I don't have anything "cool, casual, comfortable, relax" shoes so when this pair of shoes caught my eyes in the SALE section... Sold! This was originally $49.95 and down to $29.95 and further 20%!! Whee~!! A pair of denim canvas... I thought they're slightly different than the common canvas shoes...

Well... there we have it. My recent shoes purchases... It sure has been awhile since I last went shopping for shoes, but y'know, they always turn up when you ain't really looking hard for them. At least know and keep in mind what you're after ;p That's what I tend to do. I have these specific styles I'm eyeing and when I don't find them... they appear to me. Hahaha! In most cases...

To end this post, I thought I'd share my current nails color which I've been sporting for the past 2 weeks or so... and have been getting quite a number of compliments from random people on the street, in shops, anywhere! Hahaha... No it's not OPI, it's not China Glaze, it's not Revlon... it's by
Rimmel... and I must say, with Seche Vite on top, I'm quite impressed at this little gem. If you're after an opaque grey - I'd totally recommend this.
