get your boy to buy you a pair of shoes

first of all, thanks for the sympathy with my last post. your responses surely made me laugh, what with some of you raising both hands and some even their feet. it comforts me to know that so many of you can relate to me. 

in continuation with the previous post, i'd like to believe that the best way to recover from the disorder is to form a support system from family and friends. as my i've outgrown asking stuff from my parents and the only way i can get stuff from my sisters is when christmas comes around, my best bet is my boyfriend. 

as you may have noticed in some of my outfit details, a few of my shoes are gifted from Harry. gifted, yes but not really his own idea. i once had someone ask how harry buys amazing shoes for me and if he has great style as well. well, he buys them in cash (haha!) and he does have a certain laid-back style but not the kind of style where he'll see a pair of shoes and immediately think it's stylish and is perfect for me. i'd like that to remain that way as i don't want my boyfriend to be leaning towards girly stuff (if you know what i mean). 

visting department stores and different shoe stores is one way you can get the idea into your boyfriend's mind. try on a few pairs and don't stop gushing over them until he gets the point. saying it would look good with that dress would also help. talking incessantly about the pair even after you've left the store is one way for the idea to stick to his head. yes sure, these may be good steps and have been tried and tested by most girls but remember, guys are not mind readers. actually, there's no one i know who can read minds. so giving hints and having your boyfriend pick them up may be romantic but there's an 85% chance that you'll get the wrong pair (or size or color) when you open your present. 

so how do i get Harry to buy me a pair of shoes? i tell him. LOL. it would be good if you have an agreement to give gifts during birthdays and christmas which we have. so right when these occasions are nearing, i tell him straight to the point, "i want shoes for my birthday (or for christmas)." how do i get him to buy the right pair, size and color? i take a photo of the pair and save it in his phone with my shoe size as the photo name. 

and that's how you get your boyfriend to buy you shoes. it's a win-win. he's free from having to guess and take hints while i get to plan my outfits imagining the pair of shoes i'll be getting. *wink*

^^, Hehe, parang ganyan din kmi ni PJ, cguro over the past 7 years, naubusan n xa ng gift ideas that would really surprise me, so every occasion, he asks me what I want--of course, I always give him choices haha, (new book or shoes, most of the time, hehe)

Eve said...

Awww! your bf is so nice! And I love those shoes btw.

Michelle Palomar said...

love your shoes!!

Eunice said...

same here, I give hints, but often it's the wrong shoes and the wrong style. hahaha I should practice what you do so the next time I would not go disappointed. haha but I still love the effort he exerts in buying me gifts. :))

great shoes! I wish I can also pull off that kind of style! :)

roanjean said...

Hahaha I swear I do that most of the time. Sometimes sya na mismo ang nago-offer because he knows when I really like something (nasa facial expression or I can't stop gushing haha), minsan ako na nahihiya.But he's like that too so quits lang kami! :))

Pineapple Monsters said...

This is a cute post gizelle. JR and I haven't agreed to buying each other gifts on special occasions. We agreed on saving up. I'm kuripot like that. When I like new shoes, I always, always, make UTANG to my boyfriend. Hahaha. If he has no cash, I tell him to use the credit card. Hahaha. Then it will take me forever to pay him back, little by little, I pay him back. That way I don't feel the weight of the cost.

But what we have in common is whenever we have gift giving, I also tell him directly on what he wants and he does the same too :)

funny how King would argue about saving money...and he can't do that if I am always gushing about different kind of stuff...oh well!!!! a girl definitely gets what she wants hehehehe...

I think we are just very lucky to have boyfriends who makes us happy in a fashionable way!!!
