From Madrid to Manila: Menina Step Is Here 

When I found out that Menina Step, a shoe brand of Spanish origin, was coming to Manila, I was excited to say the least. Flats might be available available in abundance, but they’re also the easiest to get totally wrong.  Give me a crappy pair and I’ll feel just that–crappy. Give me a good pair of flats and I will feel as amazing as I would in a pair of stilettos. That’s how I feel in my Meninas.
Menina Step shoes are exquisite. They are handcrafted in Spain by leather artisans and they come in a wide variety of classy flat styles. They are also extremely comfortable to wear; The best thing about genuine leather shoes? They mould to fit your feet like a strangely misplaced glove.

I feel kick-ass and classy in my Meninas, and I’m so very happy to be able to give you guys a preview of the pair I wore at a photoshoot for the brand recently.

A Different Kind of Subscription Service: She Likes Shoes

Do you like shoes? I most certainly do and I think a good number of women would respond to that question with a “yes” in a heartbeat. That being said, there are degrees of liking shoes.

I’m not quite at that point (I would call myself more of a bag person), but I do like having more than just the basics when it comes to footwear. My personal “collection” consists of close to 30 pairs, some of which I share with my mom. 

I have wanted to revamp my shoe game for a while, but I just don’t have the time to spend hours in a department store’s shoe department (although I would love that). Thank goodness for online shopping and subscription services –that’s right, a subscription service is part of the solution to my problem! Enter She Likes Shoes

SLS1

She Likes Shoes is the first and only shoe subscription service in the Philippines. It works exactly the same way as with beauty sub boxes, but with shoes! How awesome is that? For a relatively small amount of money, you get access to SLS’s monthly closets and one or two shoes, depending on which STEP you’ve picked (we’ll get into that again later). So, here’s what you gotta do:
