Bensimon Strides Into Sunshine City Laoag

Eiffel Tower

I’m a self-confessed shoe fiend. Well, I collect not just any shoes. I looove shoes that won’t asphyxiate my dactyls! Hahah, I care! Found iconic Bensimon tennis shoes from Paris at Red Dot in Laoag Got them in blue and beige. If you love sneakers, you’ll love Bensimons too. The eyelets and aglets are metal, toe caps are wide and the fabric is heavy duty, high quality canvas. They are light and flexible, you can toss them in the washer without fear.

Bensimons are amazingly so easy to wear. With a casual short dress or boyfriend jeans, they are chic. I’m saving up for the girly, bright colored ballerinas.

Throwback Thursday: Bringing back Keds into my life


Keds canvas-top Champion — those were my exact words to my mom when I saw them in Seventeen back in the 80’s. It’s the kind of shoe that looks good with anything and better with time, but because there’s more rain in the Philippines, and they were classic, stark white, they didn’t last in my closet..

The pair in Tiffany blue and rubber-jute soles were smiling at me at the store.  New shoes to abuse. Here, paired with floral chiffon top from an ukay store.
