Today marks my last 21 days as a 21-year old. I’ll be turning 22 next month.. I’m normally not bothered about becoming a year older but I’ve been a little down lately just by thinking about it. Why? Well, most of the people my age already have a head start on their careers while I, on the other hand, haven’t graduated yet. Not to mention the fact that I still have a couple of months to finish review school before actually taking the board exam – assuming that I’ll pass my first take.
Anyway, I’ve been doing a lot better lately in terms of handling financial matters that I decided to reward myself a bit.. I just felt that I deserved a little treat, that’s all. 🙂
Yesterday, before getting my routine treatment at Nisce Skin ‘N Face, my cousin and I went by Aldo’s liquidation store in Solenad, Nuvali. They, as always, were still on sale; Buy 2, Take 1 and truckloads of discounted items, too. I’ve been to different Aldo stores the past few days and most of them are also on sale – 30% off or something – but the discounts weren’t as tempting as the ones at their Nuvali branch so I’m inclined to believe that this incredible sale is only available in this particular branch.
They have “Buy 2 Take 1” offers and then some 50-70% off on others. It’s difficult to give a price range because the prices depends on the items – pumps, flat, boots, etc. – but from what I’ve seen, the price goes from Php 1,000 to around Php 3,000 which isn’t bad given the brand and its reputation when it comes to good quality shoes.
If you’ve seen my 2013 Wishlist, you probably already know that what I really wanted to buy was a pair of nude pumps that would go well with corporate attires since I’ll be staring my On-The-Job training soon. But when I tried on the nude pumps I was eyeing, it didn’t exactly flatter my feet the way I thought it would. The plain nude pair totally washed me out and made my feet look a lot darker so I opted to get this one instead..
This beige and gold pumps originally costs around Php 5,900+ but I got it for only Php 1,200. Not bad for an Aldo pair, eh? Such a steal!:) I bet this elegant pair would look stunning with corporate attires and even dressy dresses for events. <3 What do you think of my new pair? Ain’t it gorgeous? 😀
