A Girl Can Never Have Enough Choos
March, 2017

“Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.” I could not agree more with the quote made famous by none other than Miss Marilyn Monroe herself.

In true dramatic Marion style, I honestly feel that with the right pair of shoes, I can take on almost anything that is thrown my way. Now, when I say the right pair of shoes, I mean shoes that not only look good but feel good. I don’t know if it’s an age thing, (probably is) but I just can’t do shoes that are not comfortable anymore, no matter how fashionable they are.

I first fell in love with the brand when I was looking for a pair of simple nude pumps that could take me from day to night. I found the perfect pair in the label’s signature ‘Romy” pumps. They were so stylish yet comfortable, I proceeded to buy them in multiple colors. ( best investment ever). I then started experimenting more with the brand. From their sandals to knee high boots, I find that Jimmy Choo always manages to strike the perfect balance between style and comfort. Needless to say, when they approached me sometime last year to collaborate, I was over the moon. Being able to work with a brand that I actually like and use, is such an honor.

Our first event together was an intimate luncheon I hosted together with ICON magazine to celebrate their Spring Summer 2017 collection. Held recently at The Chairman Suite of the Westin KL, a small group of about 18 of us got together to check out some of the new pieces from their Spring Summer collection over a scrumptious lunch.

My personal top picks from the spring summer 2017 collection would have to be the stunning shoes I had on myself for the luncheon. The Leather Lolita sandals, inspired by natural grace of the iris flower were my absolute favorite pair. I was standing for hours with them on and I have to say, despite the height, they were extremely comfortable.

The ‘Annie’ sandals also stood out for me. They simply make the perfect statement pair. I mean, sequins and feathers? What more can a girl ask for?

Finally, the ‘Ren’ cage sandals with an on trend block heel made my top pick as well. If you’re looking for something super comfy with a little bit of a heel, this pair is a must.

Of course, guests were also able to check out other shoes from the brand’s previous seasons as well as some of their staple pieces. The CINDERELLA shoe was also another outstanding piece that caught my eye right away. Made to order and decorated with 7000 dazzling Swarovski crystals and a statement cluster of hand embroidered stones, this shoe is literally the stuff of which fairytales are made. Future brides to be, this is the shoe you NEED to have.

Thank you Jimmy Choo for having me host this intimate luncheon to celebrate your spring summer 2017 collection. I sure hope everyone had as much fun as I did.
