catching up: ketchup and mustard

art deco black top - props | red multi-striped skirt - thrifted | cerulean blue belt - props | mustard platform shoes - centropell c/o zalora | faux ostrich red satchel - shopyapi.com | bangles: red wooden bangle - bangkok find, brass bangles - downtown finds | rings: cross connector, leopard connector - downtown finds, orange howlite ring - dane's giveaway | peacock feather earrings - downtown find

another catch-up outfit post taken almost 2 months ago. i have 3 more to go until i'm up to date. *crossing fingers*

i scored these awesome platform shoes at zalora.ph. i was at a bind because it came in orange, red and mustard and ultimately my decision had to be based on what color i'd most likely be able to pair with most of my clothes. mustard is definitely more of a classic subdued color. i have to admit the first time i wore these, i was limping on the way home. it needed breaking into -- the cross-straps needed adjustment to my chubby feet and the sole was a bit hard. i was ready to sell this pair or park it on my shelf solely as an eye candy. thankfully, i didn't find time to sell it because the second (and the third and fourth) time i wore it, it was already broken into and is now one of my favorite pairs. you could say, this pair is on the top shelf of my shoe rack.

Don't sell the shoes! It's the kind that you'd regret if you do. I was actually looking for something similar and you don't mind if we become twin shoesies? Haha!

Love your bag too. I've had those moments with some of my shoes too. Kailangan gyud siya i break in pero gamiton.

Love this! Cranberry is a great colo for your skin tone. And I am also under the belief that the more rings, the better. :)

Nice to read about your shoe story. :) YEah I got some of those moments too that I wanted to let go of the shoes. But later, I find value to it too. :)

Like your skirt! :)

I think you made a good decision when you went with the mustard color. I think it's a very versatile and easy to match color. :)Lovely outfit.

I love the heels! Good buy. I have a shirt like that but in gray, I don't know why it doesn't suit me, but it looks great on you.
