I am such a fan of monochromes and minimalism. In addition to my usual black and white outfit, I added something different today. Yes, it is black, and it is my booties. For some reason, I liked this boots because of the comfort it gives me. I choose black because I can pair it with any color. Ankle boots is more appropriate to wear when in the Philippines because we have a tropical weather. We do not have to be on a knee high boots because we are not experiencing winter season. Though, for some people they love knee high boots as a way of expressing their love for fashion. I also see it a lot for people working in the call center due to a freezing temperature in the work place.
I also chose suede over leather because of the velvet-like texture. Suede is always the high maintenance because you cannot use a shoe polish and brush to clean it, you need to have a special cleaner and conditioner. I am proud to say that I have a long lived shoes collections because I treat them like a baby that needs to be taken with utmost care. Shoes can be ruined if they are exposed to heat, water, and dust. If I purchase shoes, I keep the box with me and wrap the shoes if it is not in use. That way, I will be able to maintain the color and quality of the shoes. Boxes can really accumulate space, but I don’t mind because I know that my shoes are safe.
