Oh, pumps, pumps. Are you not just lovely? Whether they come in suede, croc leather, or synthetic leather like the ones below, they just make you look classy – not classic. It could be the perfect ensemble to a loud outfit or the best go-to footwear for office work.


Aldo Black Patent Leather Pumps $120

I wanted my own pair of Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) tribute pumps – they are regal, high-enough and leather-y enough. But I am trying to live like an “amish” nowadays and not to say this is discounting the pair that I have but next to the YSL tribtoo pumps, a pair of Aldo black patent leather is just about right.

They are made of synthetic leather, my friends. I’m afraid they might crinkle and wrinkle in the future. The only problem I have is that they hurt like #$%!@% because the top part of my feet are larger than average. I keep coming back to Aldo to have them extended. How embarrassing! The ladies at Aldo are kind enough to accommodate me but I’m guessing I might have to buy one myself – saw an extender at Rustan’s for P1,400. Maximum number of hours tolerated = 4 hours. Good luck to moi.

But I love them! Do you have a pair of classic black pumps that you cannot stop gushing over with?
