Current obsession: Melissa Shoes

Hey everyone! How have you been so far? I know I’ve been away for months and its killing me to be away from my blog. For so long, I hardly got a chance to just sit and have some ‘me’ time. (I need some ‘me’ time, maybe a facial soon would be good, haha) So now that I’ve got a couple of hours, it’s time for me to catch up with all of you!

Ever since I’ve started working, finding the most comfortable pair of shoes became a priority for me. Regardless of the price, comfort was the most important if I had to walk around all day in it. Luckily for my job, I didn’t need to be in heels, so searching for the pair of comfortable shoes was much easier. After hearing pretty good reviews of the shoes from my friends, I zoomed in on the brand: Melissa. And after trying my very first pair at the store, I was set on buying myself a pair of Melissa shoes (Melissa Singapore). Now I own two. And they’re probably the most comfortable shoes I own at the moment. I never complain about painful feet after walking around the whole day anymore. They are that comfortable.

Melissa Doris Special Flats in Pink

Between the 2 that I own, this is my more ‘casual’ pair (the pair that I don’t wear to work). But the combination of the pink and rose gold details has me in love. I’ve paired it with jeans, dresses, or like the photo above, shorts. Above is an outfit I put together recently, perfect for a girly casual Sunday. Just neutral makeup, a pink pout and a fresh clean floral scent.

Melissa Ultra Girl Sweet II in Black

And of course, I had a get a versatile black pair of flats as well. This design is my favourite from Melissa at the moment, that I was super tempted to get the same design in either pink or white as well. Its girly enough with the bow, but not too girly as there’s studs too. The outfit I put together with lots of black and gold is a little more formal, suitable for a date night out. It includes my favourite Dior Golden Flower eyeshadow palette and Chanel Chance Eau Tendre.

 

As I have really small feet, I thought I would have difficulties finding a suitable size for me at Melissa. Thankfully, I was able to fit their smallest size, size US5. And armed with the knowledge of my shoe size, I went online to purchase my shoes. I knew quite a few stores online sells Melissa shoes, but many were based overseas. So I settled to purchase from Zalora, it was based in Singapore so I could get my shoes really quickly. They had the shoes in the sizes I wanted, most of the time, my size sells out really quickly. Plus, it was easy to find discount codes for Zalora online. And some Melissa shoes were even on 30% off. Zalora’s delivery was really quick, I received my shoes 2 days after I ordered, so thumbs up to them! Everything was packed really nicely in bubble wrap, so no worries about damages.

 

Now all this talk has me itching to get another pair of Melissa shoes. What’s your go-to brand for comfortable shoes?
