A mid-week treat for P and D...
Wish a new pair of shoes would greet me every time I came home from work!
I saw this pair in our last visit to Cubao Expo and I knew that it just wouldn't feel right not to get them.
I've been wanting to get a pair of oxblood oxfords (wordplay!) with a fringe and tassels for the longest time. I found these at Mark R, the purveyors of fine leather oxfords and boat shoes made in good old Marikina.
The foot bed of the shoe is so plush! It feels like you're walking on pillows.
Can't wait to pair these with shorts, chinos slacks, and on and on...
I don't really like the idea of getting older and having to deal with the effects of gravity
but if every year, on the month of February, I receive a box in a box
(and hopefully more luxe boxes as the years go by)
with heart-stopping shoes inside them,
from a very sweet and nice boy,
then I think I'm willing to reconsider this whole birthday fiasco.
Yup, I'm pretty sure turning 23 won't be sooo bad after all.

Thank you for my very early birthday present, P! :)
