ShooStories: Golden steps

#25 *Fresh!*

The Shoo: Golden Step
Circa: Sept 2005
Where: Yue Hwa department store

The Story: You've got to love Chinatown. It's a mix of old and new, and even though a lot of its original charm has all but disappeared, what with the new malls, the refurbished shophouses and the spanking new MRT station, I still like walking around there and discovering the little shops. There are still the little old mom-and-pop shops if you look carefully, and the things to buy are different from what you get in town. Like these carpet-like slippers I found at Yue Hwa. I know they look like something I already have, but I couldn't resist those pretty flowers at $11. When I wore them to dinner last Thurs, my friend looked them and said, "Hmm they look like the slippers my grandma used to wear." She probably did, but it's perfect for the boho chick in me. And lastly, look at the label name - Golden Step, you can't go more Chinese than that.

Bonus!

Silver sequinned flowers

Your shoes are great! Who knew Yue Hwa could be so hip too? I remember getting neat ching-chong gifts there for an American friend, but I never thought of dressing myself from there.
