Never mind that this is a late post, I still want to share my first ever pair, or rather pairs, of Melissa shoes! I got two pairs for my first purchase thanks to their 50% off Mom’s Day promo! The promo requires that you buy a pair of Melissa shoes at regular price and then get a 50% discount on the second pair. Of course, the discount would be applied to the lower priced item.
What I like most about Melissa shoes is that (1) they are made of plastic which makes them the perfect shoes during the rainy season; (2) are super comfy; and (3) have designs that are perfect for corporate attire. However, as much as I want to have my own pair of Melissa shoes, it’s the price that’s stopping me from making the purchase. I was actually weighting the pros and cons...That is the price versus the need for durable and comfy plastic shoes. Come to think of it, I can already buy a nice pair of leather shoes with the price of a Melissa shoes; however, I can never wear a leather shoes during the raining season (which I think has started considering the rain that we’re experiencing almost every afternoon).
Well, thanks to the Mother’s Day promo that they had. I finally had a good reason to splurge on Melissa shoes! :) Getting a second pair of Melissa shoes at half the price was too tempting to ignore. Anyways, since the promo requires 2 pairs of shoes, I decided to get one that would suit my corporate needs and another one that would go well with jeans.
For the one that I intend to use at the work, I was trying to decide between Incense Wing and Electric. Actually, I prefer the Incense Wing because it looks more formal and more appropriate to be worn at the office but hubby and the sales personnel said that the Electric is sexier...that’s 2 votes against mine plus the word “sexy” appeals to me so Electric it is! :D
As for my “on the go” shoes, I chose the Ultragirl + Vivienne Westwood over the Melissa Campana Zigzag. Of course the Campana Zigzag (Gold glittered) is still on my list, I am just waiting for the next big sale. :)
