If I can’t look like Gisele Bundchen or make it to Ipanema, Brazil, at least I’ll have her sandals!

Photo 0561 About Ipanema sandals again!

Joining the ranks of Kimberly, Tine  and a whole host of women worldwide, I present my latest acquisition – Gisele Bundchen Ipanema sandals. Yes, I capitulated to the hype.

Why not, when I picked them up for RM56.90? icon smile About Ipanema sandals again!

Spotted these at a store called Novo in Bangsar Village II and decided I’d get them because they are cheaper than RM69.90 which is the going price at Studio R and Royal Sporting House stores.  Yes my mind works in strange wonderful ways. I reckon this is an older designs but I like the colour because it won’t show up dirt so easily!

Thus far, they are comfy on the feet but pinch a little between the toes. What I like is that they are noiseless, so I can creep around without making a sound. I don’t like flip flops because of erm… the flip flopping sound it makes so I prefer to wear sandals to slippers.

For the price I paid, they’d better last me longer than a year!

ha you caved in! well, that’s actually not expensive for sandals… I can’t wear such sandles as they’d kill my toe, especially the 2 biggest ones. also, there is not enough cusion for my easily cracked feet. pretty though. what a pity!

i hope the sandals last for you!

*chants to self* not going to give in, not going to give in, not going to give in, not going to give in. :P

I look at it from a logical point of view. It’s the middle of fall now, I don’t get a chance to wear them much.

Besides, I need new makeup brushes! Yah, those are more important than summery footwear!

*chants to self* not going to give in, not going to give in, not going to give in, not going to give in. :P

I can’t give in! Mustn’t give in! Shouldn’t give in! Erm. Maybe I can get a pair and fudge it as a necessity? LOL.

But with all the bloggers I’m reading touting the wonders of the Ipanema, I am so sorely tempted to get myself a pair too!

My sandals are begging to be replaced too…should I succumb? You know the Ipanema sandals are being sold at a good cause too. RM3 goes to charity or something…

I’ve seen more designs of the Gisele Ipanemas at RSH in KLCC.

But I’ve bought another pair of non-Giseles this past weekend… I should stop :P
