The Shoo: Her Madgesty (the new Madonna single 'Hung Up' is really catchy!)
Circa: Sometime 1996
Where: Little shop in Lucky Plaza
The Story: Since the colour purple and velvet are very much the 'in' things right now, I thought I would feature a pair that combines both. I can't even recall how I came to be wandering around Lucky Plaza, but perhaps that day, my mother decided to do something different and explore the shops in there. We came across a little shop that had rather exotic Asian wares - handwoven bags, unusual batik prints and lots of these Aladdin-type shoos. I was attracted to this pair because of the rich colour and the beading. And at that time, the design of these shoos looked quite special and unusual. Of course now, they really aren't all that special anymore, since the gypsy and boho looks having been making their rounds of the fashion circuit.
Seeing as I don't own a lot of purple, I don't really wear these shoos a lot. In fact, I think I've only worn them a grand total of two times; these shoos are pretty hard to match! But they sure are nice to the touch. Soft and furry, purrr.
