I normally don't attend events anymore, unless I can't resist the one who invited me. Either the brand or the person from the PR/brand. In this case, I couldn't say no to Liz Lanuzo of the beauty blog Project Vanity. She's one of the few bloggers I admire so when she said one of her clients, Ferretti, a local shoe brand, is inviting a few mom bloggers to check out their shoes, I showed up.
Live, Love, LOLz that I wish Vanilla Cupcake sold the pots and cups the way TWG does. Oh, in case you didn't know, Vince and I collect tea pots!
Anyway! I'm rambling. Let's go back to Ferretti.
Ferretti is a Proudly Pinoy brand. The shoes are all designed by Cecille's mom. Then her dad is in charge of making them come to life. Sooo romantic! She dreams them up, he makes them come true! All the shoes are handmade in Marikina. Yes, handmade. You can even ask them to customize a pair for you, in case you wanted a design in a different material or other color or your left foot is bigger than your right. Even though the shoes are handmade, they're very affordable. They start at around P600! The mommies were happy again!
Here are some of the shoes I liked:
There were other designs, by the way. The other moms were freaking out over the high heels and wedges and platforms but those styles belonged to my former life; my life now is all about chasing a toddler and carrying an almost-year-old baby! So I ended up choosing between these two:
The nearest Ferretti shop to me is the Glorietta branch. But you can find Ferretti in Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall, Robinsons Place Bacolod, Robinsons Place CDO, Gaisano Davao and Gaisano Gensan. Visit their website for a complete list of styles and branches.
