Preview: 'Shoes'

Today was one of the most intensive days in terms of shopping (ha ha! More about my adventures next time!). In the end, I spent a lot more than usual and at the same time, I got the book I wanted!
This book is going to be my guide to my personal project for the up coming days (or weeks depends what's my schedule is like!).

Title: 包み紙でつくる靴 (A shoe made of wrapping paper)

Note: The colours were a lot brighter and a little more neon like, similar to the shoes from 'Celine'. It cost S$147. The shop assistance told us that they got it custom made in Hong Kong. Grace said it's comfortable to wear! She bought these shoes from a concept store called 'Egg3' (link: (note: click again to view the website as it's operated using flash) near to Ang Siang Road.

Looks the same doesn't it?

...darn! Why did I end up with another pair of shoes!? Well, at least they were on discount from Nine West!
