I have thought about documenting the items in my closet for a while already… but I’ve decided to splice it up by items because the entire task is just too daunting. Plus, my closet is in a perpetual mess. Anyway, I have listed some of my favourite shoes at the moment!

All my shoes are black of course, I haven’t really seen the need for anything else. But I’ve been thinking of getting a pair of nude heels as of late.

First up is this pair of Aldo wedges. I believe they are inspired by Givenchy. Shoes like these aren’t usually my style, but I just love the inward-sloping wedges that gives the shoe so much more character.

Flats are for the days when I’m carrying heavy items or will be doing lots of walking, or just when I’m feeling plain lazy. We all have days like that. The only flats I have are all boots, I just don’t fancy how most other kind of flats look. These pair in particular are from H&M. The perfect lazy day boots!

No…these are not the famous Miu Miu maryjanes, though I wish they were! They are from Forever 21. I have a pair in polka dots as well! These were sold out within days on the online store, and I am not sure if they are even in the Forever 21 stores in Singapore yet. My boyfriend drove to almost half a dozen F21 stores before he found a pair for me. Alas, they are half a size too small..so if anyone is interested, I will let them go. EUR size 36.

Stella McCartney inspired wedges by Australian brand Siren. They are so comfortable! My go-to shoes for comfort without compromising height (along with my Sonia Rykiel for H&M wedges, pictured above)

I think every woman needs a pair of pumps in her closet, they give the perfect illusion of long legs! These are the Trooper heels by YSL.

Now that you’ve seen some of my favourite shoes, what would you like to see documented next?

(Please don’t ask for bottoms….I am sorely lacking in that area! Time to remedy that)

    Those YSL shoes so gorgeous <3
    Black is my main colour for shoes to, I always without doubt go for the black they might as well not make coloured shoes! The only other "colour" I have is white but that's only one pair so it doesn't count really.

    I know what you mean, I have a pair of brown shoes but they don’t “count” as well! 😛

    This made me want to do a post on the shoes in my collection too, especially since I just had a mega clearout! All the remaining shoes are black except for one grey pair…
    The shoes shown above are all amazing! Are the YSL heels comfortable?

    Dawn replied on

    Do it!! I would really like to see what shoes you have :) The YSL heels are pretty okay actually, if not a little clunky because of the heavy platforms. But the incline isn’t that high due to the platforms so they are quite comfortable!

    Your favourite leather stuff, like jackets, gloves? :)

    [Reply]

    Dawn replied on

    Hmm.. I don’t have much leather stuff, but I believe Arissa has more. Maybe we should do a combined closet post one day <3 Thanks for the suggestion!

    Dawn replied on

    Oh hello!! Thanks so much for visiting this blog! <33

    I really wanted the non-mary jane version of the shoes, but these were the only ones I could find on ebay ): They require a little breaking into but they actually get quite comfortable after a while! 😀 And thank you, I’m glad you like this post

    I adore your shoes! All so pretty *0* I wish I could buy the one you were selling but it’s too small for me too :(

    Agreed with above poster, you should feature your accessories! I love all your studded bracelets and such.

    [Reply]

    Dawn replied on

    Two suggestions for accessories! I don’t actually have that many but I’ll see what I can scrape up!

    It’s terrible that the shoes run a tad small too. I would normally be able to squeeze into a 36 but not this time ):

    Cute shoes, all of them!
    I especially love the Mary Jane one. Just too wonderful! ><
    I know Monoxious is actually a fashion blog, but I'm actually interested in your make up collection (especially your fake eyelashes).

    And yes, I vote for accessories as well. Hehe.

    Dawn replied on

    My fake lashes are from a friend who bought them in bulks when she was in vietnam! I love thicker lashes though 😀

    Hey! I just wanna know. I’m a local euro size 37. Some people have told me that F21 shoes sizes run bigger than our local size. So if I’m a local size 37, would I be able to fit in a F21 size 6 or size 7?

    [Reply]

    Arissa replied on

    It runs small. For me at least. I am a true 37 and i feel that 37 are too snug.
