Oh-My-Shoes! Nude, Aqua & Black Peep-Toe Pumps

I was at a shoe shop last week - after a long long time - and this is how it went (If my Hindi is bad, please excuse.) :
Me to Salesman"Yeh sabse chhota size dikhao" (Show me the smallest size in this)
Salesman: "Madam, 34 sabse chhota hai" (Madam, 34 is smallest size)
Me: "Haan, dikhao!" (Yes, show me!) 
I try the 34 and it's still a little bit loose.
Me: "Bhaiya! Size 33 dikhao please", I made a pleading face...okay, desperate face. (Brother! (We call all salesmen 'brother' in India) show me size 33 please)
Salesman: "Madam, 33 nahin milta" (Madam, we don't keep size 33) 
Me: "Bhaiya, aagar 33 hain toh mein sab colors khareedoongi!"- with a dramatic hand gesture (Brother, if you have size 33, I will buy all the colors)
Salesman looked stunned for a 3 seconds, then he told me to sit down. He asked for some black spongy things from some boy, stuck them to the front & back of shoes (refer to pics), then told me to try them again. They fit! Opera 'aaahhh....' in my head.


Also available in Red & White, but I just bought these 3 colors: Nude, Aqua & Black. And no, I can't walk properly in them, coz they still slip out, but I don't care. I'll just have to practice walking in a different way, haha....!

Did you notice then Louboutin-ish red soles? :)

Brand ~ Stop! (From China, I assume) 

Price ~ Rs.995 ($18.00) each. Not bad, right?

From ~ Stelatoes- Lajpat Nagar Market, New Delhi. Also in Sarojini Nagar, Rajouri Garden, Kamla Nagar. 

Which color is your favorite?

  5. Hey Cynthia , I was going to recommend Ultra Low No-Show Socks from payless but not sure if you have stores in India. Also then I realized those are peep toes, fail! But, if you are still interested they are online, comes in different colours even nude and lace! Really cute too.

  15. They're heel guards! I need to use them too, because one of my feet is a 1/4 size bigger than the other. I love a good pump~

  16. Bah...you're not getting any sympathy from me CZ!! ;P

    I've always been at the other end of the spectrum y'see..... have spent all my life bashing up (well, verbally at least!!) salesmen who yell into the storeroom "Sabse bada-wala!!!" ...or worse, they look at my feet and go "Itna bada size yahan nahi milega madam"..... yeah, and all this at ear-splitting tones.

    Oh well, vegetation on the other side I say.... (sigh!) but the shoes are so pretty!! Can't see myself wearing a pair like that coz...you guessed it.... my feet are too big! (Runs away to cry into her pillow)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
