Your Ears, My Feet

Argh.. sleepy sleepy.  Was dilly dallying last night and ended up sleeping at 2:10am.  Thank goodness I ironed 4 dresses on Sun so my work attire from Mon – Thurs is settled.

Went to the tailor during lunch & dropped off the lining for the gown.  Decided to stop by International Plaza since I was in the area.  In the end, I decided to get the pair of silver diamante shoes I was eyeing the past month for the wedding.  At $190, they’re expensive, no doubt about that, but the shoes will be custom made to fit my feet, which according to the owner of the shop, is a size 8 length & size 6 width.  I suppose you can see why no off the rack shoes fit me comfortably.

I snapped a pic of the shoes discreetly ‘cos the owner was serving other people (the shop was very crowded) and I didn’t have the opportunity to ask if I could take a photo (which I felt was ok since I already paid for a pair!!).

It’s the one in the middle… very simple design, and I had it made in silver.  I figured it will be good not to have to bother with buckles & hooks since the bridal gown’s long & heavy & I don’t want to have to lift up the can-can just to wear the shoes.  Very unglam.

Iceman and I also bought the “Jazz in the City 2” album from That CD Shop over the weekend to be played as background music during the dinner.
