Makeover

What could be more fitting than Joanne taking the original e-flyer for the Beauty & Power in Filipino/American Communities Conference and making it over into an ultimately more glamorous incarnation? I hope you lovelies come out and join us in Berkeley for this little shindig.

Speaking of makeovers, I left the house today ready to add a few pairs of shoes to my closet. I returned home five hours later with...a bunch of books (I'm looking forward to this one in particular). Why? Because there are some truly ugly-ass shoes currently gracing the shelves. Not willing to give up the hunt so easily, I turned to the internet. Still not much luck, but I am considering these kalij plume wedge heels. The heels are covered in feathers, after all.

How about I leave it to you? Vote yay or nay, and I'll purchase (or not) accordingly. Hurry up, though; they're on sale and my size might run out...

would you get olive or red? And can you fly like Icarus when you have them on?

kuya said...

YES!!!!!!! Buy them immediately. Either color is great.

Good question, gura. I think I would go with the red. And I have no doubt I can make like Icarus once I don them. (Without the getting to close to the sun part and crashing back to earth, I mean)

xliyl!

Ummm...best not to ask advice from a gal who buys her shoes on sale at Big 5 Sports...

High heels give me hives. *cough*

The fashion gene apparently skipped my generation...

please do.. but have you checked out Jeremey's? They are having a shoe sale.
However, to go w/your Shakira outfit, might I also suggest their Shaman Fur boots?

Thanks for the e-mail, K! I tried to get down there this past weekend, but just couldn't manage...
